Starting the Journey with MG Waste

Tendering out waste services is an inefficient and ineffective means to deliver stepped change improvement to your existing waste system. Waste is usually a small spend relative to your other costs but its a complex effort for your internal team to pull it all together. The process inherently looks to replicate the "As Is" and "hopes" the successful tenderer delivers continuous improvement and landfill diversion targets. Then you do it all again in 2-3 years.

Our independence and waste industry expertise offers a better approach. To get started we undertake a deep dive evaluation into your business, producing a benchmarking appraisal of your service levels, collection systems, frequencies and cost base. Our review is based not only on detailed assessment of documentation but involves site visits and key stakeholder interactions. The Waste Services Benchmark Review will specifically evaluate the areas of opportunity to improve service performance and maximise landfill diversion at each of the sites.

 

Following consultation with the client of the review recommendations, an initial Waste Management Plan is developed and a detailed implementation project plan established that best fits the needs of the client. 

Then we're away as your long term trusted partner!

       Our Service Model 

We don’t apply the traditional account management style as it doesn’t support our determination to be more relevant to our Clients continuous improvement needs through tailored solutions. Each of our Clients are assigned an Environmental Manager (EM) whose primary goal is to deeply understand the Client’s needs and objectives. Your EM will continue to be the central point of contact for the delivery of our services. Importantly their role provides consultative capacity and an additional resource to lead the continued improvement of your waste system performance, and break through those typical organisational constraints and competing priorities, which can often stall progress.

As illustrated below, this focus on continuous improvement will be delivered in a structured way via a collaborative Waste Management Plan that can be as simple or as detailed as required, based on the priorities and requirements of the Client.

       Geographic Reach 

Our current base of sites served extends throughout regional and metropolitan areas of Australia and New Zealand. Our wide geographic coverage has enabled us to identify and understand the strengths and weaknesses of waste collection company networks and recycling plants, and where value for money is best sourced.

 

Our model effectively centralises the management of an efficient multi supplier network. This service model is superior to a single provider national account option, offering transparent and continuous market benchmarking of the cost base and service levels and more adaptability and access to diversion initiatives in various geographies.
