The specialist collections, clearance and recycling company, Waste King, has won the contract to recycle heavy duty batteries from the IT systems of a major High Street retailer.

Glenn Currie, Waste King’s managing director, said: “This particular retailer is renewing some of its systems. This means that it needs not only to dispose of these batteries but also needs this process to done completely in accordance with the current Hazardous Waste regulations.

“Not only do Waste King’s staff have the qualifications to deal with this waste but, as a company, we have the necessary licences and provide all the documents that the law requires.

“Moreover, we are able to guarantee a 100 per cent recycle rate for the batteries,” he added. “Thus, this is both an eco-friendly process, which helps our environment, and we’re able to provide documentary proof to support any corporate social responsibility (CSR) eco-friendly claims that the customer makes.”

Waste King provides a wide range of waste collection and recycling services for both domestic and commercial clients including house clearances, office clearance, shop refurbishments, general rubbish removal, garden & garage clearance, wait & load and skip hire, as well as services to companies in the fields of property management and maintenance; interior design; specialist renovation, and general construction.

Its recycling and waste collection services include waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) collections and site waste management plans (SWMP). The company also offers confidential document destruction.

Andy Cattigan, Currie’s fellow director at waste King, commented: “Increasingly, waste – and disposing of it in as environmentally friendly a way as possible – is a key issue for anyone concerned with, or involved in, any form of property maintenance.

“Apparently, each day, the UK produces enough rubbish to fill Trafalgar Square to the height of Nelson’s Column. Each year, every person in the UK produces waste equivalent to the weight of five cars – and Britain only recycles 11% of it all, although over half that waste could be recycled. Moreover, each modern glass bottle will take 4,000 years or more to decompose – and even longer if it’s part of a landfill site.

“That’s why we at Waste King, pledge to recycle as much as possible of every load of waste our staff clear from customers’ premises.

“We believe that it’s never too late to start recycling your rubbish – and opting to recycle your waste through Waste King can often work out cheaper than hiring a skip.

“Waste King focuses not only on providing a friendly, efficient, cost-effective service but also one which is environmentally friendly. In particular, Waste King’s uniformed, Environment Agency-licensed staff take time to ensure that the maximum amount of waste can be recycled and that all the waste we collect is disposed of in an environmentally friendly way,” he said.
