ITV Leeds achieves 100% diversion of waste from landfill

ITV studios in Leeds, the home of the soap drama Emmerdale is celebrating its achievement in diverting 100 per cent of its waste from landfill in partnership with Elite Cleaning & Environmental Services and B&M Waste Services.

Elite Cleaning maintain the facilities at the ITV sites and carbon neutral B&M Waste Services have assisted in implementing successful recycling and waste management strategies to achieve the overall goal of diverting 100 per cent of its waste from landfill.

Elite Cleaning’s choice of waste service provider was B&M Waste Services, who work with businesses across the Leeds region and beyond to improve their recycling levels, and are carbon neutral, which aligns with Elite and ITV’s sustainability agenda.

Since working with Elite and ITV, B&M Waste have introduced a range of simplistic total waste management solutions to improve the amount of waste that can be recycled.

Mick Ashall, director at B&M Waste Services, said:

“It’s great working with such a forward thinking company such as Elite who have always taken pride in segregation and recycling. We look forward to continuing our work with Elite Cleaning and further improving segregation at the ITV sites and increasing their recycling levels too.  It’s important to provide not only great products and services but top level customer service as well.”

At the end of 2015 many parts of the country suffered from flooding including the ITV archive building. When this happened there was a lot of damaged property and belongings. To help with the clean-up operation B&M provided the skips and recycled the contents.

David Hartley from Elite Cleaning said:

“Since working with B&M Waste the bins are emptied at a time to suit ITV and ourselves, nothing is too much trouble for the drivers, they do a great job. We look forward to continuing our work with B&M Waste, and we are thrilled with our current diversion from landfill levels and look forward to the future and improving it further. While working with B&M we are confident we can achieve this goal.”
