clegg group case study

Ward is a preferred supplier of national waste solutions and skip hire services for Clegg Group Ltd which includes both Clegg Construction and Clegg Food Projects. Ward supports Clegg across the UK with waste management and diverting a high percentage of mixed construction waste from landfill sites. Services include construction waste clearance, metal, wood, plasterboard and soil recovery, as well as helping projects attain building accreditations through SmartWaste management.

Maximising recycling 

All waste collected from Ward’s direct service in the East Midlands is transferred back to Ward’s modern material recycling facilities in Ilkeston, Swadlincote and Chesterfield where it processed for recovery. 

Projects which are outside Ward’s direct service sites are managed by Ward’s nationwide cross hire department. This approved network of partners reciprocate service levels and meet environmental objectives, providing UK wide coverage.

A recent project in Derby saw Ward provide their waste management service where they collected more than 1,000 tonnes of mixed and segregated waste of which 90 per cent was diverted from landfill.

Cost effective waste management

When Clegg secures a new construction project, Ward advise on the most cost-effective waste management options. This includes advice on which containers to use, types of waste stream and frequency of collections required. 

Each site can generate different waste types and challenges, including hazardous waste such as oils, asbestos or Japanese knotweed. Ward can also arrange a site visit to find a safe and environmentally friendly solution for multiple waste streams.

Smart solutions

Ward has delivered a total waste solution service for multiple projects across the Clegg Group, including at a new state-of-the-art car show room in Sheffield valued at £15m. Ward provided SmartWaste reporting for this project, compiling waste data and generating a comprehensive waste report at the end of the project. The report helped to attain the required accreditations for BREEAM.

Gary Shout, Health Safety and Environmental Manager, Clegg Group Ltd: “Ward Recycling has been a preferred waste contractor for Clegg Group of companies for a number of years, during which they have been instrumental in providing an excellent professional waste management support and solutions to a number of projects of which some required BREEAM accreditations.”
