Mallusk-based ISL Waste Management wins £3.5m Belfast One contract
A MALLUSK-based waste management company has won a contract worth up to £3.5 million to service Belfast city centre businesses.
Following a formal tendering process, ISL Waste Management was appointed the preferred supplier to hundreds of businesses within the Belfast Business Improvement District (BID) over the next five years.
The BID was established two years ago in order to promote and enhance up to 750 businesses which operate in the city centre.
Last year, Belfast One was set up in order to deliver a five-year business plan for the BID.
Included within the ISL contract is the potential for a 12 to 24 month extension to the deal. Each of the companies within the BID will be eligible to save up to 30 per cent on their commercial and food waste removal due to the deal.
Established in 2009, ISL Waste Management currently have a workforce of 65 full-time and 40 part-time employees and operate out of a 100,000 sq ft facility in Mallusk. Existing ISL clients include Mourne's Seafood Bar and Clements Coffee.
The firm's director, Barry Donaghy, said Belfast One was instrumental in the deal.
"Zero waste to landfill is the guiding principle of our business and we have achieved significant savings and efficiencies implementing this for businesses throughout Northern Ireland," he added.
"We place equal importance on the quality of our service because we recognise the value customers place on reliability and the fact that we represent them in contributing to a clean and environmentally friendly streetscape."
