Beginning a sustainability initiative
We are delighted to announce that we have entered into an agreement with Eurotec Environmental Limited for the supply of market leading innovative and sustainable clinical waste services to the West Middlesex University Hospital (WMUH), part of the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. These services will include the provision of the UK’s most established and successful Behaviour Change programme plus the creation of the UK’s largest Sterilwave on-site clinical waste processing Plant.
Lee Beard, Contract Director for BYES commented “We see this as the beginning of a journey with Eurotec Environmental, taking WMUH forward to become one of the country’s leading sustainable NHS hospitals. Sustainability in clinical waste is an area that is often overshadowed by the more green projects.”
Lee continued “Making waste management more efficient, sustainable and compliant is something BYES is at the forefront of. The established methods of dealing with clinical waste via incineration were too outdated and unsustainable for us. In addition, challenges of regular staff turnover caused issues with staff’s ability to correctly follow ‘best practice’ waste management procedures. By partnering with Eurotec Environmental, we now start moving away from these inefficient traditional practices to a vastly more sustainable future for West Middlesex University Hospital."
With BYES, Eurotec, and the Trust working closely as a team, we have very ambitious targets for the next 12 months. This includes implementing the Behaviour Change programme across the entire hospital, including the full rollout of the OW stream. We also aim to set up the UK’s largest Sterilwave clinical waste processing Plant.
Rochelle Gee, Estates and Facilities Site Manager at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust said “We are really excited about this wide-ranging sustainability programme and believe it will provide real value to our Trust in a number of areas. We look forward to working closely with BYES and Eurotec Environmental to get these programmes quickly in place so that we can start to see the financial, sustainability and compliance benefits that these solutions will bring to our Trust."
