Joe & The Juice
Joe & the Juice's Challenge
Founded in 2002, Joe & The Juice now have over 55 stores in the UK. We work with Joe & The Juice branches across London and nationwide and have achieved some great things with them since beginning to work together in 2019.
Producing a range of juices, coffees and snacks, Joe & The Juice is a high-volume business producing a lot of food and packaging waste material every day. They wanted to ensure as much of this was recycled as possible.
First Mile's Solution
We introduced a dedicated Food Recycling stream across their stores, reducing food waste and General Waste costs, as well as providing kerbside sack collections for General Waste, Mixed Recycling, food & cardboard.
We also provide ad-hoc, on-demand clearances for larger quantities of waste when needed.
Results in the last 12 months
First Mile currently collect waste and recycling from 44 Joe & the Juice locations, which is 80% of their stores nationwide.
500 tonnes Food Recycling
By establishing a dedicated Food Recycling stream, Joe & the Juice's General Waste tonnage reduced considerably and they were able to recycle 500 tonnes of food waste.
