A new total waste management partnership brings together plastic pipeline solutions manufacturer Radius Systems and waste management expert Axil Integrated Services (Axil).

Radius Systems is a manufacturer of innovative polyethylene pipe and fittings and has been producing plastic pipeline solutions for the gas, water, energy and power, district heating and telecoms sectors for more than fifty years. Axil provides sustainable waste management services, including bespoke waste reports and data, a new storage system for hazardous waste, an upgraded waste handling system and improved recycling segregation.

Through this new partnership, Axil will actively work alongside Radius Systems to reduce its carbon footprint, maximise its recycling and support its goal to achieve zero waste to landfill. Axil will provide access to a bespoke waste portal that will create cradle to grave waste reports and provide data, including Scope 3, which enables the business to reduce waste and manage compliance.

As part of this project, Axil is implementing its HazPod™ solution which the firm claims limits repacking of hazardous waste. Axil will also overhaul the recycling segregation process, by providing visual prompts and staff education.

Commenting on the partnership, Edward Pigg, Managing Director at Axil Integrated Services, said: “The complex and hazardous waste processes of large manufacturers in the UK require a considered approach to total waste management, and, as experts in this area, we are proud to be able to help the team at Radius achieve their goals.”

Ashley Love, Environment Officer at Radius Systems said: “As British manufacturers, it is important that we think carefully about our production waste. As such, we are glad to partner with Axil to manage waste proactively and sustainably across our sites. In taking a holistic approach to waste management, we are reducing our carbon footprint, diverting waste from entering landfill, and reducing our business costs.”
