Cawleys is the First Industrial and Commercial
Waste Collection Company in the UK to Join the
DVSA Pilot Scheme
T
he Driver and Vehicle Standards
Agency (DVSA) launched its
earned
recognition
pilot
st
scheme last month (Jan 31 ) with
Cawleys one of just 31 companies
taking part in the pilot, and the only
waste management company in the
UK to be involved at this stage.
Earned recognition is a new way of
recognising safe and responsible
vehicle operators and when the pilot
ends in Spring it will be launched to
the market at the Commercial Vehicle
Show in April.
Through a system of connected, real
time monitoring, organisations with
lorries, buses and coaches prove they
meet driver and vehicle standards
against key performance targets (KPI).
All the assessment and monitoring takes
place on line, giving a dramatic reduction
in the amount of time and paper work
involved in maintaining and proving
proper compliance, and building a much
great degree of trust and cooperation

between the DVSA and the haulier
involved.
Cawleys, a third-generation family
business, has been an early adopter of
many innovations in the waste
management
sector,
including
Anaerobic
Digestion
(AD)
for
commercial food waste; investment in its
own Material Recycling Facility (MRF)
and most recently becoming a partner
with bio-bean for recycling coffee waste.
“Transportation efficiency and safety is
central to a good waste management
service. It makes complete sense to be
part of this pilot scheme, as part of our
business ethos. The scheme covers
everything we do already but just makes
the whole process so much more
efficient and open. It can only be a
positive thing for our industry” said Phil
Gudgeon, Director of Waste Collection
and Logistics at Cawleys.
“It was a very rigorous process to take
part in the pilot, involving a 28 page
document and onsite auditing, but again
this is only a good thing for our industry
as a whole and something I’m really
proud Cawleys has spearheaded, even
if it did take over my life for a while…”
Phil continued.
Cawleys introduced new software, R2C,
to centralise and connect up its systems
to the DVSA which will see it marked
and measured every four weeks against
the following KPIs:
100% safety rated defect
rectifications
100% service inspections
95% MOT pass rate
4% tachograph infringements
“Being
part
of
the
earned
recognition pilot scheme proves we are
ultra compliant. Customers are, rightly,
demanding every greater recycling
transparency and we are delighted to
offer that for every aspect of our
service, including vehicle management”
concluded Anna Cawley, Director of
Customer Services
