Case Study: Reducing Waste – Aberdeen Performing Arts

His Majesty’s Theatre share the benefits of their waste management system which led to a reduction in skip pick-ups and financial savings.   

In their efforts to address environmental sustainability across the organisation, the waste management team at His Majesty’s Theatre in Aberdeen took a look at their long established routine waste collections and engaged the help of Taylor’s Industrial Services who had been regularly uplifting two small skips of mixed recycling from the theatre three times a week.

Taylor’s, who work solely in the Aberdeen area, have developed a flexible responsive service and work closely with their customers. They provide good reports and advice on the best way to separate recycling. When it became obvious that the skip volumes varied from empty to overflowing at the fixed collection times, they advised changing to one large skip which would be collected at least once a week or within 24 hours by request.

The new arrangement has reduced collection costs, fits better with the variation in the theatre activities, and provides spare capacity for the sister theatres in Aberdeen Performing Arts group.
