Paddy Power – Winner Alright!

Paddy Power is an Irish bookmaker. Offline and in stores it conducts business through a chain of licensed betting shops in Ireland and the United Kingdom, and by operating Ireland’s largest telephone betting service.

The City Bin Co. won the contract to handle its waste in November 2014. In sitting down with Head of Facility Management for the Paddy Power Group (Philip Devlin) we recognised that the subcontractor network being used was costing a lot of money. We also recognised that the waste was being presented in black sacks and this was labeled general waste. The City Bin Co. invested in its very own truck for collecting this waste across various locations. We encouraged the company to start using clear bags as the product being disposed of was paper and not general waste. We offered their stores a tailored collection service to divert ALL of this waste through our truck collection service away from landfill.

The net result here was that the time invested by both companies in explaining how to present this waste to us and the timings of the waste collection gave the cost-saving. They were no longer experiencing a service where collection days were irregular and waste was being left outside getting wet or contaminated.
