Willshee’s has delivered a 35% saving in waste management costs for Burton-based Pet Treats Wholesale following the installation of a portable compactor – which has also resulted in the frequency of collections reducing from daily to three weekly.
Founded in 2011 by Dominic Jolivet, Pet Treats is one of the UK’s leading dog treat wholesale suppliers, specialising in healthy alternatives for our four-legged friends. Not surprisingly, the business is currently booming on the back of the surge in pet ownership during the pandemic.
The company has recently moved to larger premises and has a thriving online business with nearly 100 different product lines.
“With the way the business was growing so rapidly, we found our waste had also increased and we had to look at options that would be beneficial to the business. Willshee’s offered us the perfect solution in the form of a portable waste compactor, which not only helped us handle and process the increased waste, but also offered a cost saving against our standard collections.
“It has worked really well. Not only taking the headache away from the waste disposal side of the business but also reducing the amount of vehicle movement on site, which has improved our CO2 credentials. It really is a win win situation!”Dominic Jolivet
Dominic originally trained as a chef and his experience in the food industry, coupled with his passion for pets and their wellbeing, has given him a truly unique perspective on this market.
