Implementation of an integrated management system in Hopkins Recycling
For over a decade Hopkins Recycling Ltd had been working in partnership with Hampshire County Council, managing nine of the county’s Household Waste Recycling Centres, receiving over 4 million visitors per year.
Hopkins wished to extend their contract with Hampshire County Council to manage all of the county’s Household Waste Recycling Centres and engaged Keypath as part of their bid team when the tender for these services was announced in 2007.
Keypath’s Managing Director, Nick Warn, worked with Hopkins to ensure their bid was successful and then assisted them to comply with HCC requirements through the implementation of an Integrated Management System incorporating the international standards ISO 9001:2008; ISO 14001:2004 and OHSAS 18001:2007. A business continuity manual was also introduced to comply with the British Standard BS 25999.
Hopkins now operate all of the county’s HWRCs and have successfully achieved certification of their Integrated Management System. Kevin Hopkins, MD of Hopkins Recycling Ltd. said
“We were very happy with the service Keypath gave us in helping to win the bid and then enabling us to achieve certification of our management system. Nick and his Associates gave us really useful hands-on help throughout the whole process.”
