O-I Glass Manufacturing

A dedicated full-time member of staff has been appointed to oversee one of Binn Group’s recently-acquired contracts with a major Scottish glass manufacturer.

O-I Glass Manufacturing Ltd in Alloa produce glass, cardboard, polythene, general office waste, and food waste.

Binn Group’s “man on site” will implement a tailor-made waste management system to segregate and present individual waste streams ready for collection by a steady stream of Binn Group vehicles.

O-I Glass Manufacturing Ltd is a worldwide company and Binn Group is delighted to be handling the management, collection, and recycling of all waste from their Scottish base.

Commercial Director Jim Brown said it was a testament to the reputation and commitment of the Glanfarg-based team that an industry leader such as O-I Glass Manufacturing Ltd had turned to Binn Group to solve its waste problems.

“Binn Group will always go the extra mile to ensure we can meet the unique needs of each client and by placing a full-time member of staff at the Alloa manufacturing complex we will be able to react immediately to any issues arising as well as oversee the day-to-day running of the waste management system developed for our customer.”

Stirling Council

Binn Group has also secured the contract for processing all Stirling Council’s three-dimensional household waste. The contract will see Binn Group vehicles uplift all the council’s collected household 3D recyclable waste from a central collection point. This waste – which amounts to around 2,000 tonnes a year will then be transferred in bulk for processing and recycling.

Dundee Students’ Union

Binn Group is also taking its specialist services to Dundee University’s Students’ Union. The company has been awarded the contract to uplift all their general waste from two city centre locations. This will see all waste streams – such as food, glass, plastics, cardboard, and paper – all sent for recycling at Binn Ecopark.
