A Prestigious Project with John Sisk and Son!

ancoats-silk-blog-01

We are delighted to announce our most recent appointment; we are now a preferred supplier of national waste management services to none other than construction specialists, John Sisk & Son.

Widely recognised for their expertise in the residential sector, Sisk have successfully delivered more than 3,000 homes in the past five years – an achievement which has helped pave the way for the company to partake in a project of monumental proportions. By working in collaboration with the Manchester Life Development Company, Sisk has been busy with plans to help deliver the first tranche of 960 new homes within Manchester, setting a new benchmark for property development in the area.

National Waste Management Services

Of course, such a colossal amount of construction will require a comprehensive waste management package; including skip hire, trade waste removal and hazardous waste packaging removal – and that’s where we come in.

Our own fleet and our nationwide waste management service allows us to cater for projects of this scale with ease, the sheer size of the project means that it will generate construction waste, trade waste and hazardous waste packaging waste in significant volumes. Sisk have already been provided with our dedicated hazardous waste packaging service and 40 members of staff and sub contract staff received dedicated training on site to ensure that all materials deemed hazardous are removed safely and in full accordance with current EA/EU and government legislation.

Waste Management Education

Our involvement doesn’t stop with on- site services either. Sisk have also enlisted us to assist in educating their staff and graduates with our knowledge and experience in national waste management. Sisk run a comprehensive four-year scheme to equip graduates with the tools and experience to further their careers in construction. The programme underpins the rigorous Chartership requirements of various professional institutes and the carefully-designed programme covers a wide range of topic areas, including sustainability, and ‘Waste and the Circular Economy’.

Graduate Presentation

Just last Friday, our Commercial Manager, Paul Eagleton, attended a graduate training day to assist Brian Handcock, Head of Sustainability and Sarah-Jane Holmes, Environmental Advisor with a presentation to the first cohort of graduates.

The day long training covered many aspects of waste management and Paul provided an insight into the practical and commercial realities of handling large volumes of waste. Paul shared his knowledge and experience of operating and running a busy nationwide waste management business, with specific reference placed on the practicalities of site operations and how and where the materials that are recycled and recovered are re-entered back into industry.

The graduates completed the course gaining an insight into the legal requirements of waste management as well as a commercial and practical appreciation of the interface between waste being generated on construction projects and how it is handled by national waste management companies such as ourselves.

It’s a pleasure to be a part of such a prestigious project, and one that goes beyond construction and development. We share a common view with Sisk in that compliant, safe and responsible waste management contributes to the wider community and we will always support our customers and support education in this sector. We will update on our ongoing partnership with Sisk, so be sure to check back for news and updates.

Kenny Waste Management supports ISG Construction & BBC’s DIY SOS Walking With The Wounded

When it comes to leading waste management companies in Manchester, especially leaders in handling construction and demolition wastes then you don’t need to look any further than Kenny Waste Management.

We are very proud to have helped the “Walking with the wounded/DIY SOS: The Big Build, Veteran’s Special” with free skips in Manchester through our valued relationship with our customer ISG Construction.

When it comes to low cost skip hire in Manchester you can’t get any lower than free, we must however stress that we don’t do free skips in Manchester for everybody, the DIY SOS was a special event which we are proud to support.

Many testimonials have been received on the project, particularly from the BBC’s Nick Knowles and his team, who emphasised the importance of the support and help provided by Kenny Waste Management and others on the BBC shows themselves, in accompanying interviews and on social media.

New Functions Added to Our Skip by Skip Live Waste Reporting Portal

Kenny Waste Management are pleased to announce that we have recently instructed our IT partners Waste Logics to add further functionality to our current live waste reporting portal.

Most of our Customers are aware that our portal is live over the internet accessible via a unique login and password provided by Kenny Waste Management.  By the end of July 2014 this portal will be accessible by visiting our website www.kennywastemanagement.co.uk and following the link to the portal.

A unique login and password is still required.

New Functionality

* All waste transfer notes and invoices are now uploaded to the portal.  As a legal requirement Customers should be retaining Waste Transfer Notes for a 2 year period (3 years for hazardous waste consignment notes).  These are now stored on our portal for the 2 and 3 year period.  Copy invoices are also available.  This functionality can be authorised by Kenny Waste Management for required users.

* A summary of waste collected from each site is now available, for example 10 x 8yrd general mixed waste skips and 4 x 8yrd wood skips etc.

* The system then uses the skip by skip analysis to summarise the various waste categories that have been identified within the 15 waste categories on the controlled waste transfer note.

* The percentages are then shown in the pie charts by both weight and volume.

* The final chart then shows what has happened to these waste categories so that the user can identify what has happened to the waste, for example Recovered for Further Processing, Recycled to the WRAP Protocol, Recovered for Refuse Derived Fuel or sent to Landfill.

* The dashboard has been updated so that the user (our customer) can have access to more than one report.

* The user can choose whether to access a report for ALL sites or one site.

* Shortly the user will be able to group sites and save these reports to grouped sites so they can run reports on these grouped sites to.

We are constantly being asked to consider new ways of providing information and we welcome any feedback in relation to the added functionality or indeed any suggestions.

From a business point of view it is important that our Customers know how to use the system and as such we do try and provide this information via emails, news on our website and news on the reporting portal.

They tasked Kenny Waste Management with providing an audit on all their dealerships and accident repair centers to see how they could improve the way they recycled and disposed of the waste they produced.

Steve Walsh, the Groups After Sales Manager said “The advice from the audit was useful and perfect for what we were after, not only did they provide a sustainable, more environmentally friendly option we actually reduced our costs. I would definitely recommend Kenny Waste Management to any business looking to recycle more and reduce costs while not compromising on service.”
