Port of Aberdeen rubberstamps recycling contract

EIS Waste Services inks £300,000 deal with Port of Aberdeen

EIS Waste Services Ltd, a recycling company, inked a £300,000 ($378,000) three-year deal with the Port of Aberdeen to handle waste management and recycling across the port’s facilities, including vessels and offices.

The port aims to become the UK’s first net zero port by 2040 and the new deal is anticipated to help reduce its Scope 3 emissions.

In line with its commitment to zero emissions and carbon-free collections, EIS has transformed its waste management methods.

The Port of Aberdeen will reportedly profit from having its waste delivered to EIS’ purpose-built transfer station facility at Checkbar, on the outskirts of Aberdeen. This recycling and energy generation technology allows for 100 per cent landfill diversion.

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.”
