Stockton-based automotive firm Nifco UK have partnered O’Brien to supply a range of waste & recycling services across their Stockton operation. The deal will see the creation of 2 new jobs in the form of O’Brien waste operatives who will based full time at the Nifco site.
The operatives will be tasked with segregating the recyclable waste into different streams which will then transported directly to recyclers to be made into new products. This move towards a facilities waste management service is becoming more popular regionally, as it improves the quality of waste segregation, saves valuable headcount and offers increased recycling rates.
North East based O’Brien Waste Recycling Solutions has built it’s reputation over the past 10 years through a customer-first approach and investment in innovative technology solutions. However it is this unique and innovative approach to the waste sorting processes that really differentiates the business.
Nifco UK were in the market for a single supplier to assist with all their waste streams and a strategic waste partner. Malcolm Mayes, Systems Engineer from Nifco UK commented: “We were drawn to O’Brien because of their reputation for working in partnership, rather than a company to simply dispose of our waste. Having the waste operatives on site is a simple but effective idea and we are greatly encouraged with how that is going”.
David Bennett, Sales & Marketing Director at O’Brien Waste Recycling Solutions commented: “Nifco UK is a key and valued client for O’Brien and we are delighted with the opportunity to assist the team with their ongoing commitment to sustainability. We are constantly looking at new ways to help our business partners improve their recycling performance. The move towards the circular economy is critical in this country, especially with Brexit looming over us”.
