How it Works

Axiom EnvironmentalWorking with the prospective customer, Axiom will initially visit site and conduct a waste survey. This survey will encompass all generated waste-streams and their current disposal process. This will generate a desktop study of the opportunities available and suggest changes to waste/processing techniques in a bid to show a monthly cost saving. Resulting information is then used to construct a waste matrix and strategy for the site or customer in question. The collated information and data form a ‘Proposal Document’.

Upon acceptance of the proposal by the customer, roll-out schedules are agreed and the strategy commences. The reasons for this ‘roll-out’ approach are three-fold: -

  1. Many of the suggestions within the strategy may involve the educating of staff as to the perceived value of the product in question and the exclusion of its presence from general waste streams. This can take time. Axiom work with the customer to achieve realistic targets and often spend time on site working with personnel in their everyday environment to ensure these are met.
  2. Some of the process implementations may involve the installation of balers, compactors etc. and the commissioning thereof. The cost of this plant, if necessary, can be amortised over the monthly spend or savings applied to the waste in question.
  3. All new contracts are subject to legislative compliance scrutiny. This is not to uncover failings in the past waste-management strategy; but rather to make things water tight going forward. Legislation is a fluxious entity within the waste industry and demands constant attention.

Data generated from the waste movements and transactions within the employed matrix is collected on a constant basis, collated, and presented to the incumbent customer on a monthly basis. In this way it is easy to keep track on the savings made against budget and compare them with the forecast within the proposal document.

Regular revue meetings are scheduled, to discuss any practical issues or updates necessary, and any alterations in practice effected accordingly.
