Smiths awarded place on Kier’s Waste Framework

Smiths, one of the largest waste management companies in the South West & Wales, has been awarded a place on Kier’s new Waste Framework.

Kier, a leading provider of construction and infrastructure services, has undertaken a strategic review of its waste management supply chain and appointed over 40 suppliers. Kier has chosen to work with more regional & local suppliers to better support the local communities they operate within while delivering on their sustainability target to reach zero avoidable waste by 2035.

Smiths are delighted to work with Kier as one of their approved regional operators, managing their waste to support designing it out of projects as part of early engagement and to recycle as much as possible on site to move ever closer to the 2035 target.

Tom Broomfield, Divisional Manager at Smiths, said: “We’re extremely pleased to have been awarded a place on Kier’s waste management framework, which will not only maximise waste diversion from landfill, but also see materials reused on site.”

David O’Keefe, procurement director at Kier, adds: “As part of our target of zero avoidable waste by 2035, we have carried out an extensive review of our waste supply chain. Through our new framework, we now have suppliers from across the country as part of our commitment to support the local communities in which we operate as well as being varying in size, including social enterprises. We look forward to working with our preferred suppliers to realise our ambitions.”
