Costa Coffee wanted to divert more waste from landfill. At the 800 Costa stores and over 370 franchises serviced by Veolia there was little room for recycling bins and in-store segregation had to be as simple as possible. The key goals were to reduce costs through rate reduction, innovation and optimisation. Veolia has combined Costa sales data into their management reports so that spend and tonnage are managed on a site by site basis according to the sites revenue. This means sites only pay for the services they need which provided £120,000 savings in the last financial year.
