Coastal Recycling has become the first waste resource management organisation in the South of England to be awarded the BSI standard national quality mark, PAS 402. This quality mark recognises the company’s commitment to reducing waste, specifically for the construction and demolition industry.
PAS 402 is a nationally recognised quality waste management standard that focuses on recycling and energy recovery. It follows a rigorous process set by the BSI (the national standards body of the UK) to meet the particular needs of the construction and demolition industries.
“This marks a key milestone for us. To lead the way as the first waste resource management organisation in the south of England to achieve this quality mark demonstrates our commitment to the environment. Recovering resources has been at the heart of our operations for some time and achieving PAS 402 is a fantastic external endorsement. The award is testimony to the great work done on all our sites and by all our teams of recycling operatives,” said Richard Marsh, Coastal Recycling Director.
Coastal Recycling managed to achieve PAS 402 by meeting key performance targets across the operation including collection, transport, recovery, treatment and disposal of waste as well as reporting and evidence collection on waste management activity and materials recovery rates. In order to keep the standard, the company will have to continue meeting the same performance specifications.
“Achieving PAS 402 is a great step for Coastal and a recognisable seal of approval for customers. When choosing to work with Coastal Recycling, customers can be confident that the demolition and construction materials leaving a site will be managed according to strict standards and that they will have verifiable information for any waste management audit,” said Taryn Clements, Coastal Recycling Head of Compliance.
Based in Exeter, Coastal Recycling is the South West’s leading independent recycling and waste management specialist.
