Together Kent County Council and REPIC improved annual vehicle usage efficiency by 7% through optimising e-waste recycling collections and was rewarded with the REPIC Champion of Champions Award 2020 as a result of the improvements recorded.

At the start of 2019, both parties agreed on targets for the collection of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE). Following the agreement on the targets to meet, REPIC delivered a series of training workshops which included advice on how to fill and maintain site containers. The workshops improved the overall awareness of WEEE recycling of both the site staff as well as customer services teams and waste managers at the Council.

The training complemented Kent’s ongoing training, helping to achieve the 2019 target of reducing the number of vehicles sent into the sites for the collection of WEEE relative to the volume collected by 7% year on year. A further direct benefit of reducing the numbers of vehicles, has meant less vehicles on the roads and a reduction in local CO2 emissions.

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.

Kent County Council success was rewarded in March 2020, when the whole team picked up the accolade of REPIC Champion of Champions.

“The provider/client relationship they provide is second to none, and their service is excellent.”

“Over the five years we’ve worked with REPIC, they have delivered consistently efficient management of our cooling, display and large WEEE streams. The provider/client relationship they provide is second to none, and their service is excellent.”
