Biffa IRM is a multi-award winning business providing innovative efficiency changes to the management of waste and resources throughout a number of UK operations.

The Biffa approach

Although Biffa started out as a waste collection and disposal company, we are now helping customers get to grips with their resource management practices and eliminate waste altogether. Biffa Integrated Resource Management takes the approach that if a company is paying to have waste removed it will most likely benefit from some leaner business thinking.

For the waste management industry to properly grow up, it needs to be providing customers with the right advice about their waste. That shouldn't stop at separating recyclables, for example, but should address why waste is arising in the first place.

That's why we embed our staff on customer premises and get to the root cause of waste – be it through driving process initiatives, improving supply chain management, or developing a co-product from what was previously a waste stream.
