23.06.2016 - High Profile Local Organisations Working Together
Having recently been awarded the ‘National Tipper of the Year’ accolade, as well as featuring in The Sunday Times Fast Track 100 for the second consecutive year, Mick George Ltd has now managed to secure one of its highest profile business partnerships having announced that the company will be the new waste service provider for The University of Cambridge.
The agreement was concluded after a comprehensive tender process which saw Mick George Ltd come out on top, when competing against national brands. A key decision factor for the University was the provision from Mick George Ltd 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.
The contract is of significant value and will see Mick George Ltd take care of collection and disposal of waste from all University of Cambridge facilities for the next five years. This is a significant step to support the thriving business environment which the City represents, with two local organisations able to work together. Mick George Ltd are 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.
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.
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.”
