Typically, in the commercial world, decisions about waste disposal focus on how much waste you can get rid of at least cost which is coming at then problem from the wrong end. Understanding how and why you are creating the waste and realising ways you can avoid it, makes much more sense. Adopt waste hierarchy strategies to reduce, reuse, recycle BEFORE you opt to remove.
At Q3 we are experts in recycling and environmental sustainability, able to advise your organisation on ways to manage your waste streams, ensuring you are both legally compliant and treating waste as a potential resource.
At Q3, we call our approach Sustainable Recycling Management, or SuRe for short.
Sustainability is featuring in the corporate business agenda as never before. The UK Government has placed sustainability as a central pillar of the plan for economic recovery, post-Covid pandemic. And the pressure is being increased on all businesses to think responsibly and act accordingly. Q3’s Sustainable Recycling Management solution can be your roadmap to a sustainable future.
Our team comprises many diverse experts, with years of experience and a deep understanding of this highly regulated business. We apply best practice and invest in people who really understand this market. So, there are very few things we don’t know how to tackle in this complex area.
We’ll help you achieve Zero waste to landfill and statutory compliance. We’ll apply our imagination to deliver novel recycling ideas to provide new life for otherwise discarded waste materials. We’ll access rebates on your behalf and deliver cost-savings through the implementation of sustainability strategies. And we’ll help you achieve a position where you can be proud of your Corporate Social Responsibility credentials.
Our approach is consultative but at the same time, we operate in a totally hands-on way. We apply our specialist knowledge and experience to resolve your specific waste problems. We don’t own any specialist plant, equipment or landfill facilities and because we are not wedded to any one technology or supplier, we can think and operate impartially.
We’ll propose a bespoke solution that could involve multiple suppliers, knowing that it may not be the easiest option – but because it’s the best, most effective and cost-efficient solution for your organisation. And, we have a unique approach to supply-chain management, backed by a network of specialists to help deliver that solution.
Our process is simple and it works:
We are also experts in the management of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) and adhere to regulations and guidelines set forth by government agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and international bodies such as the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants.
Q3 has the ability to audit, identify and segregate materials that contain POPs from other waste streams, ensure it is stored correctly and safely to avoid leaks or spills and have the know-how to treat and dispose of POPs-containing waste in an environmentally sound manner. So your organisation stays compliant and your waste does not become someone else’s problem.
Often, our approach may involve closed loop recycling where waste products are recycled to produce something new and valuable. Here are a few examples of the kinds of projects we manage:
Q3 is a great business to work with and to work for. We were set up by a group of people motivated by experience to create a very different type of Facilities Management company. Here you’ll find out more about us and how we work. If that’s not enough, contact us
Here’s how Q3 works for other clients…
It’s been a fantastic journey so far and we have collectively achieved so much. Personally, I have learned a tremendous amount about the Q3 team and continue to do so.
Best of luck Q3! You are an exceptional partner to us, so much so we don’t see you as a separate business and we treat your people as ours.
If the client wants us to dress up in clown outfits and hand out balloons, that’s alright with me!
I just wanted to send in my thanks to Emma, who helped me on Saturday when my Mum passed out in front of TK Maxx. Emma was very friendly, calm and efficient, I don't know what I would have done without her. She was so professional and knew exactly what was needed I couldn't believe it when screens turned up and a wheel chair, all organised by Emma without making myself or especially my Mum feel stupid or an inconvenience. Please can you pass on mine, my Mum's and family's thanks to Emma, she is a star and a very kind person.
