Experience in waste collection and related logistics comes from the delivery of well over 100 options appraisal projects over a career spanning 20+ years. Examples include:
— Greater Manchester authorities (working with Wood, on behalf of the GMCA). Provision of KAT modelling of a number of collection options in preparation for the 2021 consultation on Consistency and wider Resources & Waste Strategy proposals.
— North East Lincolnshire Council (working for WRAP). This short assessment of resource and waste diversion impacts was needed in advance of a proposed change in collection service design by the Council comprising a reduction in the frequency of residual waste collections (linked to recent changes in recycling collections)
— Worcestershire authorities (working for WRAP and directly). Combining the outputs from individual waste collection authority models to present comparative options for the county-level partnership. Underpinned by the need to introduce separate weekly food waste collections and with a focus on consistent service design that drives down future residual waste arisings.
— Managing baseline data capture and Officer engagament across multiple authorities.
— Peer reviewing spreadsheet models: inputs, assumptions, calculations and results.
— Modelling new collection systems, drawing on a wealth of historic projects and scheme performance data.
