Mick George Ltd’s waste division services a large portfolio of public and private clients including many large construction companies. The company currently transfers, treats, recovers and disposes of waste across 26 operational locations, with plans to increase this number in the coming years. As a result, we have become the largest company, based on waste throughput, to have achieved PAS 402 certification to date.
In response to Client demand and in keeping with our aim to continually improve our service, Mick George Ltd set out to achieve PAS 402 certification early in 2017 and secured it at the beginning of 2018, following the installation of a state-of-the-art Recycling Plant at our St Ives site which saw Kiverco (manufacturers) and Mick George Ltd shortlisted as finalists for ‘Business Partnership of the Year’ at the National Recycling Awards.
In addition to plans for further investment in plant and technology to improve our recovery and recycling rates, Mick George Ltd are busy upgrading our current ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHAS 18001 integrated management system with a view to obtaining UKAS certification in 2019.
Our independently audited PAS 402 certification provides a strong indication of the environmental credentials of the business, demonstrating proficiency in material recovery for prospective and existing clients, as well as more general best practice in quality, policies and relevant health and safety matters.
Neil Johnson, Technical Waste Director at Mick George Ltd commented: ‘For Mick George Ltd to be able demonstrate significant diversion rates through the scheme, highlights the not only the company’s efforts and investment in improving service levels for our clients, but on a wider scale, contributing towards improving the state of the environment. The growing number of high-profile organisations utilising Mick George Ltd for their waste management requirements is a testament to the quality of service we provide, but the company will undoubtedly benefit further having achieved PAS 402 certification.”
