Mitie has secured a five-year contract with Fife College in Scotland, with the option to extend for a further two years.
The contract includes the provision of cleaning and waste management services.
Mitie will undertake a range of cleaning services across five of Fife College's main sites.
As part of Mitie and Fife College's sustainability initiatives, environmentally friendly cleaning products will be used on the contract, conducive to 100 per cent biodegradability.
Mitie will also be introducing one of its first electric vehicles to the contract, allowing for zero carbon emissions on travel between the five sites.
As part of the waste management contract, Mitie will agree new recycling targets with Fife College and review avenues for change to increase the amount of material being recycled.
Mitie will focus on reducing the amount of single use plastics and packaging at the site by introducing compostable materials at catering facilities and re-evaluating the current recycling facilities to allow for greater capacity.
In addition to this, food waste will be captured separately and routed to energy recovery facilities, avoiding landfill.
Together with Mitie's supply partners, the contract will establish "community partnerships, designed to support local charities and foodbanks, underpinning the College's commitment to sustainability".
