ISL get their Hands Dirty… Again: Compositional Analysis of Kerbside and HWRC Wastes for Wigan Council.
Wigan Council appointed Integrated Skills to carry out a comprehensive analysis of the household waste it manages. The results will update previous analyses, provide insight into performance by area and inform strategic plans for future disposal services.
Commenting on the waste analysis project for Wigan Council, Stuart Henshaw, Business Development Director, said “The Government’s new Resources and Waste Strategy will require every Council in England to better understand their waste composition and we are very pleased to be assisting Wigan with this project”.
Waste composition analysis (WCA) provides information about the types and amounts of the materials that are in a given waste stream. Data is gathered by physically sorting the waste by hand into a number of predetermined categories. Each category is then weighed and the results are collated to provide a breakdown of the total composition of waste that has been sampled.
Integrated Skills’ specialist waste analysis team has extensive experience in the UK and elsewhere including the States of Guernsey. Past projects have taken the team to the Middle East and as far as Samarkand in Uzbekistan!
Waste management consultancy has been a core service since the inception of Integrated Skills in 1993. All aspects are covered from strategy development and procurement advice to planning and permitting.
Combining knowledge and experience of waste services, together with a core competency in information technology, has led Integrated Skills to become expert in route optimisation and the UK distributor for RouteSmart™ for ArcGIS.
