Biffa Waste Services & ALS Environmental agree contract extension

ALS Environmental; one of the UK’s leading analytical service providers to the Waste Management sector, and Biffa Waste Services; the UK's leading provider of Waste Management Services, have today (Friday, 9th January 2015) agreed to extend their working relationship with an additional two year contract extension. The extension means that ALS Environmental will provide analytical services to Biffa Waste Services in a working relationship that spans over two decades.

The extension to the analytical services agreement will see ALS Environmental perform over 100,000 analytical tests a year on samples from in excess of 70 open and closed landfill sites. The analysis will be provided by ALS Environmentals Coventry laboratory, which is our centre of excellence for waste analysis.

Under UK law, Biffa Waste are responsible for monitoring any closed landfill sites for 25 years after the sites last use. ALS Environmental provides a range of weekly, monthly, quarterly and annual tests to help Biffa demonstrate that all Environmental Agency (EA) requirements are met and exceeded to manage the risks associated with the closed landfill sites.

Biffa Waste provide ALS Environmental with over 1,000 analytical samples per month for a range of Organic and Inorganic chemical parameters. ALS Environmental provide analytical results to Biffa in a format that allows them to report data to the EA, as well as monitor and trend any site specific details.

Dr James Taylor, Business Development Manager for ALS Environmental who has been involved in the Biffa contract at various levels for nearly 10 years, comments:

"The extension of our working relationship with Biffa Waste is excellent news for both parties. Biffa Waste Services, as the leading provider of Waste Managment Services in the UK, maintain the highestet standards of service and delivery; they expect nothing less from their suppliers. ALS Environmental are proud to have exceeded the contractual requirements in terms of service delivery for Biffa.

"We have been working in unison to develop registration tools, reporting formats and analytical methods to support Biffa as we progress through this contract and look forward to many more years working together."

With Waste Management 3 (WM3) due to be published in 2015 the analytical challenges are only likely to become more stringent, as Mark Robson, Senior Category Manager at Biffa Waste Services, states:

"ALS Environmental have a track record of delivering analytical data in a timely and efficient manner. The team are always happy to accommodate any developments to methods and help support us in protecting the environment in which we operate.

"We at Biffa take our responsibilities in this area very seriously and will only work with reliable and professional partners. ALS Environmental is recognised within our business as a key service provider and we look forward to continuing to strengthen our excellent working relationship for years to come."
