National recycling and waste management provider Biffa has been awarded the total waste management contract for leisure operator Bourne Leisure, providing services for Haven parks and Warner Leisure Hotels across the UK.


Biffa will be delivering general waste management, dry mixed recycling, as well as glass and food recycling services to 35 Haven holiday parks and 13 Warner Leisure Hotels across the country, from Scotland to the South West.


Bourne Leisure, parent company of holiday brands including Butlin’s, caters to more than four million families a year.


Ian Bourne, purchasing manager at Bourne Leisure, said Biffa would be “working across a large portion of our Haven and Warner hotel sites”.


“During peak periods, such as the summer and Easter holidays, our sites’ waste requirements significantly increase, and it was imperative during the selection process that Biffa was able to demonstrate its ability to adapt to changing requirements and proactively plan on a park by park basis,” he said.


“They also reward our parks for improving recycling performance, which is a great motivational tool for our teams, setting them clear goals and aspirations to drive environmental improvements. Biffa’s multichannel communication strategy also helps us to engage the general public, which over time will further enhance our sites’ recycling results.”


Biffa’s integrated services allow parks to monitor and forecast their waste production in specific areas of the sites and tailor a waste management schedule that works accordingly.
