Producer of Coffee Pods

The customer was having issues getting staff to segregate the empty from the full coffee Pods, it would cause issues such as large tonne bags full of empty pods being added to the trailer.


Client

Producer of Coffee Pods

Scope

The Client was consistently contaminating the packaged food waste trailer with tonne sacks and empty coffee pods from the production line. We were struggling to process the waste at the agreed rate, due to the increased costs of packaging disposal and the client was failing to realise recycling and green certificate income.

The Tonne sacks were being used to collect the coffee pods, both full and empty. The was no defining characteristic between the two so both were being added to the trailer.

Our team installed plastic pallet boxes on site, colour co-ordinated for each waste stream. We the provided toolbox talks and signage to the site as well as giving training on the disposal process to give the staff an understanding of the potential good they could do by segregating.

Period

Scoping – 1 Week

Implementation – Pallet box delivery – 1 week

Training – 1 week, over 4 shifts to cover all staff.

Results

The first load of packaged food waste delivered to us following the pallet box implementation and training showed an instant success, zero tonne sacks.

Outcome

Since putting the pallet boxes in place we have seen a huge reduction in empty pods being put in the trailer and removed the need for any tonne bags. So not only does the customer save the cost of buying them but being omitted from the trailer means that there is less weight being thrown away and as such, less costs to the client.

Testimonial 

That’s great news Duncan. Much more organics in that bulker for you, the Dolavs clearly work!

It’s clear that Hazel has implemented well from their end.
