Mitie & Mermaid Quay

Mermaid Quay is proud to welcome Mitie as a sponsor of our GOING GREEN campaign.

As a company Mitie provides facilities management, consultancy, project management and a range of specialist services that connect people with innovation and technology; helping its clients go beyond FM to the Connected Workspace.

Mitie’s waste management business is one of the UK’s most innovative and forward thinking resource management companies. Its business model is very simple but it is different from the norm in the marketplace; it doesn’t operate its own waste facilities or vehicles, preferring to use pre-approved supplier base to carry out the physical collections and re-processing of customers’ waste. This means it is under no pressure to maintain, or increase, waste volumes to maintain its own disposal sites. Instead its sole focus is to work in partnership with the customer to deliver the optimum resource management package; targeting cost efficiencies and best practice treatment and recovery options.

Mitie’s waste services cover the full array of waste management requirements, from internal recycling bins to bulk tankers for liquid sludge, food waste solutions to on-site equipment hire, secure confidential destruction to commodity trading and everything in between. Specifically, at Mermaid Quay Mitie provides waste management through segregation of waste streams generated from; general waste, DMR, mixed glass, cardboard and food waste recycling. Its ‘resource, not waste’ philosophy focusses on waste avoidance and minimization alongside developing additional recycling opportunities and increasing sustainability.

Mitie Landscapes is an award-winning landscaping and grounds maintenance company. It believe first impressions count so it’s important that the grounds around a building are as well maintained as the inside. This philosophy has been employed to great effect at Mermaid Quay. Mitie Landscapes are responsible for ensuring the grounds look fantastic all year round, and during the winter months its gritting and snow clearance teams make sure Mermaid Quay keeps running through even the coldest winter weather. It has been developing and maintaining grounds of businesses for many years, catering to a range of needs which includes ground maintenance, landscaping, gritting and snow clearance, interior office plants and a Christmas decoration service.

Mitie Waste & Landscapes is delighted to have sponsored packets of wildflower seeds that are being given out to school children visiting the GreenHouse at Mermaid Quay on organised visits.

It is running an associated social media campaign on Twitter. It has planted some of the wildflower seeds and is posting regular updates on their growth with the #WatchUsGrow hastag.
