Camelot, the National Lottery operator, has appointed Cawleys as its local recycling and waste resource partner.
The partnership began in July. Cawleys collects a huge variety of waste for recycling and is one of the few local waste managers to have its own materials recycling facility that can sort and separate recyclable materials from all general waste.
Any non-recyclables are sent to energy-from-waste facilities.
The partnership will initially focus on Camelot’s national distribution centre in Northampton and will enable the organisation to maximise its plastic and card recycling rates.
Volumes are continuous and Camelot is self-segregating card and plastic waste into separate roll-on, roll-off containers for Cawleys collection.
This gives Camelot the option to get money back for waste materials where applicable.
As well as segregated waste, Cawleys also collects Camelot’s general waste, which is put through Cawleys’ MRF to maximise recycling recovery rates.
Rob French, general manager at Camelot’s Northampton distribution centre, said one of the reasons that it selected Cawleys was because of its "sustainable approach to every waste stream".
French added: “Not only can we continue to have a process that segregates our plastic and card waste, which ensures any by-products from our card and ticket manufacturing processes are suitably dealt with, but we also have a sustainable waste solution for our general waste."
He said that "even non-segregated waste will be recycled or converted into fuel".
