REMONDIS Waste Solutions Keeps New Zealand Clean and Green
It is always a good thing when we hear about one of our New Zealand companies achieving, particularly in these tough economic times. By showing a commitment to excellence, despite the downturn, REMONDIS has proven their on-going dedication to their customers, the public and the overall environmental scene. These ISO certificates are an internationally recognised industry standard for quality systems in business and Occupational Health & Safety and are of paramount importance to the whole team at REMONDIS. The waste management industry is recognised as among the most hazardous work place industries in New Zealand and they take this very seriously. The AS/NZS 4801:2001 accreditation is an endorsement of this commitment, and of their on-going dedication to continuous improvement.
The system includes stringent induction processes for all employees, a dedicated OH&S Committee with representatives from each department within the business who meet regularly to ensure employee consultation and participation. Their front line team have fortnightly Toolbox meetings which include reminders about health and safety issues and provide an environment for open discussion of any OH&S concerns within the team. Risk assessments are an integral part of the systems, minimising hazards and ensuring best practice is followed.
The ISO 9001:2008 certification is an endorsement of Quality Management Systems within the business. This is an assurance of quality systems for all processes, proving their commitment to professional customer service. Like the health and safety system, their management systems are documented and audited, with reassessments to ensure they remain relevant and meet on-going requirements.
This is all part and parcel of their residential and commercial services, including their general waste collections, recycling and the construction and cleaning industries. Regarding general waste, REMONDIS’ consultants are available to assess the volume and type of waste and they also assist in minimisation strategies for your business, to provide the best environmental and cost effective solutions. Similarly, recycling solutions are flexible to reflect the changing needs of your business and can offer cost savings and environmental benefits relative to general waste disposal. REMONDIS is totally committed to environmentally sustainable waste solutions.
Similarly, with residential services, REMONDIS’ kerbside collections for wheelie bins are available throughout most regions of metropolitan Auckland and Rodney districts. REMONDIS’ green, prepaid official Rodney bags are collected weekly in that area and skip bins are also available for clean-ups around the house and for home renovations.
