Over the last decade, Waste Management in the UK has evolved into a sophisticated system of collection, transfer, treatment, recovery and disposal. The sector continues to change as greater emphasis is placed on:

  • Reducing the overall levels of waste across the UK
  • Increasing the levels of recycling both in the domestic and commercial sectors
  • Substantially reducing the amount of waste that ends up in landfill.

Although much of the change is driven by legislation, other factors are playing their part, including:

  • Economic constraints imposed by reduced government spending following the 2008-2009 recession
  • The need to reduce carbon emissions and become ‘greener’
  • Increased demand for waste collection and treatment and recycling
  • The trend towards market consolidation and integrated waste management.

As the legislative and economic complexities and pressures continue to broaden and deepen, the need to be able to address the dual requirements of delivering an effective and efficient service whilst reducing emissions and the overall carbon footprint will be challenging.

Irrespective of whether those charged with waste collection and disposal are public or private sector organisations, they will face similar challenges over the foreseeable future. Addressing these challenges will necessitate radical solutions including:

  • Route optimization (either by distance, weight or cost)
  • Charging for waste
  • Establishing shared services for routing which will allow adjacent local authorities to centralise routing and realise significant operational savings
  • Modelling, building and running routes under different operating scenarios.
