Euromaster towards next level waste management

Euromaster Nederland, a network of service and sales points for tires and car maintenance with national coverage, has outsourced waste and raw materials management to Milgro. The optimization phase that has now started aims to improve financial and sustainability performance.

After a successful pilot in 2016, Euromaster has outsourced the entire waste management of all 92 locations to Milgro as of January 2017. In the first phase, the focus was mainly on providing insight into and transparency of all waste flows. Now that all waste flows are registered and Euromaster always has up-to-date insight into the flows, we have started implementing improvements. The collection structure is optimized in order to further reduce waste costs. In addition, the separation behavior with regard to the residual flows will be improved to enable reuse and high-quality recycling.

Gerry de Laet, HSEQ manager at Euromaster Netherlands: “We are committed to protecting the environment and continuously strive for even better social and economic performance. By professionalizing our waste management, we combine sustainability with cost savings. In Milgro we have found the right partner for this. ” Jaap van Stijn, Regional Manager at Euromaster Netherlands, is also pleased with the collaboration: “The project with Milgro is a good project with a head and a tail. Milgro is clearly a party with knowledge and experience in the automotive industry. The approach to take us further step by step, paying attention to each location, is starting to bear fruit. It is good to see that the separate collection of waste flows is getting better and better. Everyone does it and therefore contributes. ”

Olivier de Wit, Consultant Resource Management at Milgro: “Now that all Euromaster waste flows run via Milgro's digital platform, Euromaster always has up-to-date insight into the residual flows per location, per region and at national level. The reporting structure also adds a lot of value. At the various Euromaster locations, the staff are increasingly committed to the objective of sustainable profitability. It is good to see that the entire organization supports the sustainability policy. This is how we achieve the best results together. "
