We’ve just had a really busy few days launching the Every Can Counts workplace recycling programme at the Facilities Show at the NEC. An amazing number of people came to the show, thanks in no small part I think to the clever organisational tactic of running separate but related exhibitions on all the topics a facilities or buildings manager could wish for, such as health and safety, security and fire – as well as facilities management. May not sound thrilling, but all the more reason perhaps to group the exhibitions together …
Three members of our team were kept busy for pretty much the whole three days, with enquiries from all sectors – manufacture, distribution and retail, as well as public services and government – so we’re hopeful of a high conversion rate from enquiry to programme implementation.
We provide branded collection boxes for the workplace, plus plenty of resources to make sure that everyone recycles every drinks can they use – massive energy and resource savings to reduce carbon footprint. The number of commercial waste companies which also provide recycling collection services (essential to efficient workplace recycling) is growing all the time, and it’s well worth ensuring your business asks this question when renewing contracts.
We’ve also just taken delivery of the first branded Can-crushers – brilliant collection containers with a pull-down handle to crush the cans, which are ideal for high-profile public spaces, and a bit of fun to use.
