Reconomy renews recycling contract with Sunrise Senior Living UK and Gracewell Healthcare
Sunrise Senior Living UK and Gracewell Healthcare, award-winning providers of care, nursing and assisted living for the elderly, have renewed their recycling and resource management contract with Reconomy across 46 care homes.
Reconomy, the UK’s leading provider of outsourced resource management and recycling services has been working with Sunrise Senior Living UK and Gracewell Healthcare since 2018 and continues to provide a reliable and proactive managed service for the collection and safe disposal of all waste streams across their care homes.
Reconomy has been working extremely closely with Sunrise and Gracewell to navigate through the pandemic, providing the essential management that ensures waste handling and disposal procedures are compliant in-line with government guidelines.
Looking ahead, the new contract sets out to explore and introduce innovative solutions to waste that sees a more sustainable outcome such as coffee ground recycling, closed loop PPE recycling as well as uniformed signage and labelling systems that will ensure in-house teams are engaged with the process and support to minimise contamination of waste streams.
Steve Hatton, Head of Account Management at Reconomy, Said:
“We are proud to have been able to support Sunrise Senior Living UK and Gracewell Healthcare over the past 3 years, especially with the immense pressure the facilities have been under during the pandemic. Our role is very much to enable our customers to focus on their core business while we take care of the environment, specifically the waste, around that. By continuing to deliver a hassle-free waste service that evolves over time to deliver financial and environmental benefit, we feel satisfied we are fulfilling this and creating a long-lasting partnership”
Chris Dean, Director of Procurement at Sunrise and Gracewell, said:
“We are delighted to award Reconomy with this contract as they have helped us to reduce a proliferated supply base and secure savings in a challenging market, all while maintaining the highest standards. Reconomy also supported Sunrise and Gracewell to maximise our recycling activities, helping us to achieve our commitment to reduce our impact on the environment.
“These achievements proved even more remarkable when considering that the sector was in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic and facing the increased pressures created by this challenging period.”
