Our Partnerships


Binn Group is proud to support a number of local and national groups and organisations. These partnerships help to further strengthen our focus and commitment on recycling, reuse, waste minimisation, landfill diversion, value for money and improving our environment.

SWITCH Forum

Binn Group is delighted to be one of the 30 organisations who make up the SWITCH forum. Our Commercial Manager Jim Brown represents Binn Group on the Switch Executive and also on the Health & Safety Working Group.

SWITCH (Scottish Waste Industry Training, Competency, Health & Safety) is a multi-partnership forum made up of organisations across all sectors within the resource management industry with two main areas of focus:

  • Health & Safety: Supporting continual improvement in health and safety
  • Education, Training & Competence: Creating training, learning and development opportunities

The Forum aims to provide leadership by working collaboratively to raise standards of health and safety, training, learning and development, and technical competence. The Forum ultimately looks to promote the Scottish resource management industry as an attractive career choice.

A range of organisations make up the SWITCH Forum including representatives from private waste management companies, advisory bodies, local authorities, Chartered Institution of Wastes Management (CIWM), Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA), the Scottish Government and Zero Waste Scotland amongst others.

Forum Aims

The key priorities for SWITCH over the next 18 months are:
  • Providing clarity on the aims, objectives and remit of the SWITCH Forum to increase awareness of SWITCH
  • Promoting new and existing WISH Guidance
  • Promoting the education, training and competency priorities, including the launch of the new Competency Framework
  • A focus on key priority areas including Reducing Fire Risk at Waste Management Sites, Occupational Health and Transport

EcoTechnic

Binn Group is proud to support EcoTechnic; a business network to support business to business collaboration, promote local goods and services and facilitate access to information, advice and best practice in the renewables and green technology sector/industry. The network also provides support for sector demonstration projects.

The main goal of EcoTechnic is to accelerate the growth of this key sector and help realise the benefits to the local economy, environment and society that green technology can bring.
