Barts Health NHS Trust sends zero waste to landfill, and is constantly pushing boundaries in healthcare waste management. Working in partnership with Skanska, waste costs have been reduced by over £2 million over the last 3 years.

This has been achieved through a behavioural change and audit team who offer clinical waste segregation training to all staff, alongside the streamlining of collections. Our hard work has been externally recognised, with the trust being the first NHS Trust in the UK to be awarded the Carbon Trust Standard for Waste.
