Arguable one of the most iconic shopping centres in the UK, the Trafford Centre attracts over 31 million visitors per year. With over 200 retail and 60 catering units, this large, North West shopping centre produces up to 6,500 tonnes of waste every year.
Sector: Commercial & Industrial
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.
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.
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. Whilst working together, they have gone on to win multiple environmental awards:
- Silver Green Apple Award, 2016
- Green World Environment Award, 2017
