Why They Chose JWS

When we went out to tender for our waste management contracts, we were looking for service and also a good reputation for good waste management services.

JWS came in and they were competitive with their price, their service levels were excellent and also their environmental credentials were really sound.

Previous Issues / Challenges

I need flexibility from my waste service provider to be able to respond to the large quantity of waste that intu Trafford Centre produces on a regular basis.

We wanted to change waste service providers because the service that we were getting just wasn’t good enough.

Key Benefits

From the very start of the partnership, both intu Trafford Centre and JWS have been dedicated to improving the impact that waste management has for both the shopping centre and the environment.

The amount of customers that come through our doors varies on a day to day basis, so JWS are here 7 days a week. In a fast-moving environment such as the Trafford Centre, having that flexibility is absolutely essential to us.

Favourite Aspect

Dealing with our waste on a local level is really important to intu Trafford Centre, and working with JWS, a local business only 6 miles away, means that our waste stays within the region and reduces our carbon footprint.

“The JWS team is very helpful and we appreciate the ‘nothing is too much trouble’ support from them.”
