Waste services provider Enva has been awarded a contract to manage the waste and recycling for 94 sites managed by Historic Environment Scotland (HES).
The locations include some of the country’s oldest landmarks such as Edinburgh, Urquhart and Stirling castles. The Glasgow-based resource recovery firm will supply environmentally and commercially sustainable solutions for more than 60 different waste streams, helping HES to meet its climate action plan targets through effective waste management.
These measures include:
- 70 per cent recycling by 2025 and no more than 5 per cent to landfill;
- Reducing food waste by 33 per cent by 2025; and
- Net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2045.
Stephen Cameron, Enva’s sales director, said its partnership with HES would deliver “a best-in-class resource management performance”.
He added: “This will be achieved through continual assessment of the waste being produced and the services provided. Wherever possible, we will seek to introduce innovation to increase the range and volume of materials being recycled and made available for use in the circular economy. I am confident our hugely experienced account management team will continue to deliver efficiencies and support HES in meeting their admirable Climate Action Plan targets.”
Under the contract, Enva will also upgrade the availability of waste data and management information to give a clearer overview of how waste is managed across the estate and help to identify areas where material can be moved up the waste hierarchy to realise improved environmental and financial value.
