Cyngor Gwynedd Council: Huge Savings By Moving to a 3 day week


Gwynedd County Council used our WM Design optimisation technology to move from a standard 5 days shift to a 3 day shift system with one shift working Monday to Wednesday and another Thursday to Saturday.

The number of crews was reduced from 44 to 24 and staff numbers were reduced by 20, resulting in savings in excess of £1.5M/yr. Recycling performance rose from 28% to 41%. This was a radical project led by the team at Gwynedd and enabled by WMDesign, our route optimisation technology.

“By any standard this was a hugely successful project. Webaspx played a key role in enabling us to achieve savings of over £1.5M/yr.” Geraint Rees Jones, Group Engineer, Cyngor Gwynedd Council
