COVID compliant catering equipment disposal delivers financial rewards

When Foodservice and Catering specialist ISS Healthcare won the University Hospital Lewisham contract in 2019, they chose to reshape the patient and retail catering offers, which initially meant the removal of the now redundant, yet fully operational kitchen and transforming it into a state-of-the-art Training Academy. An extensive range of large, multi-purpose catering equipment required removal, including combi ovens, deep fat fryers, salamanders, bratt plans plus numerous double sink units, pot wash machines and a full length 4.5 metre flight dishwasher.

With a deadline of May 2020 fast approaching, ISS selected Ramco as their chosen supplier of asset disposal solutions for all the unwanted equipment within the facility. Having worked with Ramco previously, ISS were familiar with their hassle-free, flexible solutions and their expertise in sustainable and profitable asset disposal.

On commencement of the project, Ramco efficiently arranged all matters relating to the logistics, removal, and collection of the goods, ensuring that all work was completed in a COVID complaint manner and within tight timeframes.

All the surplus catering equipment collected from the facility was then sold through one of Ramco’s dedicated catering auctions, preventing the equipment from unnecessarily going to landfill, which is all too often the case within the foodservice industry. Combined with a significant financial return to offset some of the overall project cost, ISS were also able to reduce waste, significantly improve their environmental credentials and ultimately create a more sustainable operation.

Darran Swales, ISS Project Manager “We had previously used Ramco to dispose of our surplus cleaning equipment, so I knew their capability. The communication, process and collection all went smoothly, with a better than anticipated financial return. We will certainly use Ramco on other projects”
