EIS Waste Services secures contract with Port of Aberdeen

Located in Checkbar on the outskirts of Aberdeen, EIS Waste Services recently secured a three-year contract worth £300,000 with Port of Aberdeen, the oldest existing business in Britain.

As part of the contract, EIS will provide comprehensive waste management and recycling services across Port of Aberdeen’s estate, including visiting vessels and office facilities. The port is committed to becoming the UK’s first net zero port by 2040, and the new contract will support the reduction of its scope 3 emissions.

EIS is dedicated to reaching zero emissions and carbon-free collections and has accordingly transformed its waste management practices. The port will benefit from EIS’ waste management processes, which involve sending the waste to the company’s purpose-built transfer station facility in Checkbar. This approach to recycling and energy production offers a 100% diversion from landfill solution.

Neil Sharp, Managing Director at EIS Waste Services, said: “This partnership with Port of Aberdeen marks a significant milestone for us, emphasising our commitment to a sustainable future. We aim to support Port of Aberdeen in its journey towards net zero by delivering our comprehensive waste management and recycling services.

“Under a thorough competitive tender process, we’re delighted that a local firm like ourselves has won this contract with such a prestigious regional business.

“We believe our commitment to environmental responsibility and cutting-edge technologies aligns with Port of Aberdeen’s vision, and in collaboration, we are working towards a cleaner, more sustainable future.”

Belle Sierina, Environmental Manager at Port of Aberdeen, said: “Effective waste management and recycling are important strands of our net zero strategy. We look forward to working with EIS Waste Services and identifying opportunities to enhance our environmental and sustainability activities.”

EIS recently invested £2.5 million in state-of-the-art vehicles to ensure full compliance with the new Low Emission Zone (LEZ) requirements for Aberdeen city centre. Its fleet of vehicles, which are the most advanced with low emissions, has been awarded a five-star rating in the UK ECO Stars fleet recognition scheme since 2018.

A fully electric Volvo skip truck, which EIS is currently trialling as part of its carbon reduction plans, facilitated the delivery of all containers to the Port of Aberdeen site. It is the first of its kind in Aberdeen.
