How we work
Across the UK, Kier is helping local authority customers to meet their environmental targets and also save money at the same time.
We provide frontline refuse and recycling services to over 3.2m households in the UK, alongside the full range of street cleaning, grounds maintenance and commercial waste services.
By using the latest technology and through our logistical expertise, we are able to reduce the cost of environmental services for more than 20 public and private sector clients, through long-term partnership arrangements. Our approach is to work with our clients to deliver better ways of collection in order to extract the maximum value from recycled materials, while also reducing the amount of waste going to landfill.
Recycling and waste collection
Whether via sack, wheeled bin, container or bulk collection, we provide quality recycling and waste collection services to both domestic and trade customers.
We work hard to contribute to European, national and local initiatives and to reduce the quantity of waste sent to landfill sites. For example in Bridgend 72% of all municipal waste is now diverted away from landfill. This has been achieved by: A new collection methology, a vehicle specifically designed and unique for the contract. With a compaction system and round changes to reduce the fleet and increase productivity. The success has not only reduced the risk of injury but has reduced the number of vehicles undertaking collections; resulting in a reduction in carbon footprint.
Our recycling services are competitively priced, while utilising the skills, services and talent available in your local community.
Street cleansing and grounds maintenance
We maintain roads, footpaths and public highways on behalf of local authorities throughout the UK. Our approach to street cleansing involves using modern and effective mechanical sweeping equipment to complement traditional street sweeping methods.
Our grounds maintenance teams are fully equipped and trained in the maintenance of sports pitches, recreational areas, cemeteries and highways land. Offering a fully mobile solution, we also work on landscaping projects and general estate maintenance.
