Together Kent County Council and REPIC improved annual vehicle usage efficiency by 7% through optimising e-waste recycling collections.
Having agreed on targets for the collection of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) for the year, REPIC delivered a series of training workshops to both site staff, customer service teams and waste managers at the Council.
This training complemented Kent’s ongoing activities, designed to help achieve the 2019 collection targets and highlight where improvements could be made. The training included advice on how to fill and maintain site containers. This helped to achieve a reduction in the number of vehicles sent into the sites for the collection of WEEE relative to the volume collected by 7% year on year.
Kent County Council success was rewarded in March 2020, when the whole team picked up the accolade of REPIC Champion of Champions.
The REPIC Champion of Champions initiative aims to improve all of its partnered Local Authority sites staff awareness of WEEE, understanding what’s in scope and working on ways to improve efficiencies around collections of electricals from sites.
“The provider/client relationship they provide is second to none, and their service is excellent.”
