Axil Integrated Services has begun a three-year contract to manage the waste from LEVC’s (London Electric Vehicle Company) new headquarters in Coventry. LEVC is the firm behind London’s black taxicabs.
Axil started working with LEVC this month to help with its recycling and its work towards achieving its zero to landfill ambition.
Part of the work includes delivery of training to encourage LEVC staff to engage with new waste initiatives. This will focus on the importance of waste segregation as key to achieving the best recycling outcomes. Improved signage will be installed across the site to help with this objective.
“We have exciting plans in place to boost their recycling rates and are looking to remove up to 30% of their general waste tonnage,” said Grace Oldham, head of business development at Axil. “We are introducing more efficient equipment to segregate waste streams as part of our efforts to help LEVC move towards its ambition of becoming a zero to landfill company.”
LEVC’s new headquarters comprises 37,000 sqm. The company produces 20,000 units a year.
