The ever-expanding Commercial Waste service provided by local business Mick George Ltd has yet another prestigious partnership to be proud of, having landed an agreement with Cambridgeshire Constabulary that will see the Waste Management specialists serve each of the Constabularies nineteen operating locations (including their headquarters) across the county.
The switch to a localised service, from one which has historically been awarded to national brands, represents the strong unity that exists within a thriving business community within the region at present.
More than 2614 officers, PCSO’s, constables, staff and volunteers function from each of the respective sites, and as such generate considerable waste. The 12-month agreement consists of 51 containers located across the various premises, with weekly or fortnightly collections of general and recycled materials.
One of the principle factors in the decision to award Mick George Ltd the contract was their ability to provide a sustainable and fully auditable zero to landfill waste management solution from the outset, fulfilling the Constabulary’s commitment to improving its environmental influence. In addition, MGRL’s competitive pricing was particularly prevalent during the robust tender process, positively standing out from competition.
Cambridgeshire Constabulary is responsible for effective policing across the whole of Cambridgeshire, covering approximately 1,316 square miles of the East of England region, helping to protect a population of more than 800,000 inhabitants.
The iconic Yellow’ bins that Mick George Ltd provide are becoming an increasingly popular site throughout the county’s high-streets and prominent business locations. The Constabulary is not the first emergency service authority to partner with Mick George Ltd, last year Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue service also took the leap and hasn’t looked back since.
Stephen Hull at Cambridgeshire Constabulary said: ‘’Cambridgeshire Constabulary is pleased to announce the appointment of Mick George Recycling Ltd as a tier 1 supplier to carry out waste disposal and recycling services at all its sites throughout the County.’’
Hull continued: ‘’Cambridgeshire Constabulary is committed to supporting local suppliers and looks forward to working with MGRL in a partnership agreement to our mutual benefit.’’
Abigail Johnson, Head of Waste at Mick George Ltd commented: ‘’Much like ourselves, Cambridgeshire Constabulary has a duty to provide the community with a service to the highest of standards. We are immensely proud to be connected with yet another reputable local authority.’’
Johnson Continued: ‘’It shows just how much our commercial waste provision has developed in a short space of time, viewed upon as a dependable and quality service that those within our operating areas are keen to utilise.’’
