Launch of Waste Management Brokers Association

5th March 2017 | Recycling

Three outsourced waste management providers have joined forces to create the Waste Management Brokers Association (WMBA). They have a combined turnover of more than £70m and include Network Rail, Greene King and Aldi.

UK Waste Solutions Ltd, Specialist Waste Recycling and Newstar Environmental recently finalised plans to form the Association. This will represent and give a united voice to the brokerage model in the UK waste and recycling sector.

The WMBA aims to become one of the most influential and respected professional bodies in the sector. It will work to represent both existing and next-generation waste management brokers.

Key areas of focus for the WMBA will include:

  • Building the reputation and raising the profile of the outsourced model
  • Developing consistency and a Code of Best Practice
  • Building even closer relationships with the highly innovative supply chain.

One of the first tasks of the Association will be to develop a simple Code of Best Practice to help ensure consistency within the brokers and the way they operate with the supply chain.
Key areas of attention will include service levels, innovation, the proximity principle, sustainable procurement, data management, education and training. All of these will enhance the customer experience.

“The WMBA will focus on working closely with our local supply chain to ensure that as the industry changes we will continue to deliver environmentally and commercially sustainable solutions to our customers across the UK.”

Commenting on the launch, the founding member of the WMBA issued a joint statement. The inception of the WMBA marks a key development in the waste industry. More and more organisations are now opting for the highly innovative, cost effective and flexible brokerage model, which uniquely builds on the service delivery strengths of both local and national waste suppliers to manage their waste.”
