Waste Analysis and Participation Monitoring

We are the UK's leading provider of municipal waste compositional analysis, having over 30 years’ experience of delivering a varied suite of compositional projects. We work across the UK for local authorities, waste management and other organisations requiring waste analysis services.

 

We were the first to develop modern techniques, employing skilled analysts to characterise the composition of the waste materials. We are one of only a handful of suppliers on the WRAP framework for Waste Analysis. We are experts in devising representative sampling techniques for all types of contracts, and are happy to carry out large multi-phase projects as well as one off smaller, bespoke commissions.

 

We have an in-house field team of around 30 waste analysts, who are professionally supervised by experienced team leaders. We work across the UK for local authorities, waste management and other organisations requiring waste analysis services. We offer three main types of waste analysis service:

  • Waste material flow analysis of kerbside collected, HWRC and trade waste streams
  • Disposal facilities feedstock and output analysis including IVCs, MRFs and transfer stations
  • Feedstock analysis of energy from waste plants to understand composition, CV and chemical analysis

 

Participation monitoring is a technique for measuring the performance of kerbside collection schemes using standard defined parameters (outlined in the WRAP toolkit). We have an in house monitoring team, who have successfully carried out a vast amount of projects across the country.

 

We are also able to offer an enhanced visual presentation of results, using our InSite GIS software and can map participation rates of the kerbside services by round and also produce maps of predicted participation. We can also offer enhanced participation monitoring services which include visual assessments of material within the receptacles.
