Axil Integrated Services


Corby-based waste management specialist, Axil Integrated Services, has announced that since taking on the waste management at two of Whirlpool UK Appliances Limited sites, it has been able to reduce the company’s general waste by 50% - the equivalent weight of 10 one- tonne black rhinos a month. Axil Integrated Services, which also has a site in Cannock, started


working with the well-known home appliance manufacturer last year. Fast forward 12 months, and the partnership is celebrating one year of incredible results. As well as signifi cantly reducing general waste, which has been reclassifi ed and captured as a recycling commodity, saving thousands of pounds for the company, Axil Integrated Services and Whirlpool have worked together to introduce new systems and processes. T ese include the introduction of segregation-style bins in the offi ce to increase recycling. Continuous liners are also used in Whirlpool offi ce bins, which has reduced plastic waste by 80% as they are only throwing away the part of the bag that is fi lled. Other changes include the implementation of a ‘clean as you go’


philosophy in the waste yard, the use of a new trailer system that can exchange four 1,100-litre bins at a time, saving time and increasing productivity, and the removal of single-use canteen cutlery, which has been replaced with biodegradable products. Re-usable coff ee cups and stainless steel water bottles have also been introduced, which will remove more than 158,000 single-use coff ee cups and 56,000 plastic bottles from Whirlpool’s canteens. Mark Newall, Contracts Manager at Axil Integrated Services, also found an innovative way of taking the concrete ballast, used in appliances, and recycling it into aggregate. Improvements have also been made to the Whirlpool UK Appliances Limited premises in Peterborough, with the removal of an old offi ce and welfare unit that were in disrepair and these have been replaced with new facilities, boosting staff morale. Paul Cooke, Operations Director at Axil Integrated Services, said:


“Together we have made some big strides to debulk general waste and reduce plastics at Whirlpool UK Appliances Limited, ensuring as much waste is reused and recycled as possible. T is includes reducing general waste through on-site sortation, reclassifi cation and energy recovery, simplifying processes, and introducing new machinery. Whirlpool UK Appliances Limited is committed to #PlasticLess, and


New spin on
