Reconomy wins recycling contract with Cloud Student Homes

Student accommodation provider, Cloud Student Homes, has appointed Reconomy to manage its waste and recycling services across 8 UK locations.


Reconomy, the UK’s leading provider of outsourced resource management and recycling services has introduced additional recycling bins to reduce the amount of general waste going to landfill. The current recycling levels sit at 35% and once services are underway there are plans to move recycling towards 60% by monitoring the performance and identifying opportunities across sites.

As part of Reconomy’s mobilisation clearer signage will be installed as well as a roll out of engagement programmes across campus’ to students to introduce behaviour change at source.

Steve Hatton, Head of Account Management at Reconomy, Said:

“It is fantastic to be supporting Cloud Student Homes with their waste management. When a process is carried out in-house it is often difficult to be aware of the latest ways of working so by outsourcing the service to a dedicated waste services provider, we can provide that ongoing monitoring of performance. I am delighted that with our solution we will not only straight away be able to provide savings through efficiency gains, but also start to work towards improving the environmental and sustainability targets and performance.”

Luzmari Gonzalez at Cloud Student Homes, said:

“It is refreshing to know that our waste is now being managed by Reconomy who have a great deal of knowledge and experience. The support gained through outsourcing really give us the reassurance we are getting good rates, good service whilst also saving on admin costs that would come from us doing it ourselves. Beyond the financial savings it is also exciting to be looking at ways to improve our environmental performance and getting our students involved too”.
