Mick George Ltd will be the new waste service provider for The University of Cambridge, the waste firm has announced.
The agreement was concluded after a comprehensive tender process, and will see Mick George take care of collection and disposal of waste from all University of Cambridge facilities for the next five years.
Mick George is already active in the local community around Cambridge with their support for Addenbrokes Hospital and Cambridge United FC, and working with the University will allow both organisations to reach out and support new community projects in the area, the company says.
“Over the coming years we will be working closely with all departments at the University raising awareness of waste recovery and recycling, and we are looking forward to working with their staff and students over the coming months.”
Abigail Johnson, commercial manager at Mick George Ltd commented: “We are immensely proud to be providing services for The University of Cambridge, one of the most famous Universities in the World. Our Commercial Waste service has established itself as one of our core services since its launch a year ago, and to be awarded such a high profile contract is a testament to the investment and efforts the business has made to make it a success.
According to Mick George a key decision factor for the University was the provision from the company of a sustainable and fully auditable zero to landfill waste management option from the outset, enabling the University to meet one of their key environmental targets ahead of time.
Johnson continued: “Over the coming years we will be working closely with all departments at the University raising awareness of waste recovery and recycling, and we are looking forward to working with their staff and students over the coming months.”
