St Albans, Herts, United Kingdom, 2011/11/08 - The specialist collections, clearance and recycling company, Waste King, has reported that – for the last two quarters in succession – its revenue has risen by 78 per cent compared with the same periods last year - WasteKing.co.uk.
Waste King’s managing director, Glenn Currie, commented: “This consistent increase is a result of the systems that we follow. In addition, our customers – many of them as a result of previous experience of ours services - trust that we can deliver great customer service with added value at competitive rates.
“All this continues to drive the success of this company.”
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.
Among its recent contracts were:
• Carrying out a collection of waste for the Barking and Dagenham Mencap Society. The collection included a broken snooker table, wood and green waste which weighed some 1.4 tonnes. The Society’s Lynne Ferdinando commented: “We had three of our service users who have a learning disability helping out - and both of the Waste King staff members were both patient and proficient in the task in hand.
“They took time to communicate with the men and listened attentively - which is a very rare quality. Once again, a big thank you to them for the support they gave to our service users - enabling them to help and be proud of the area they cleared.”
• Some major clearance work for an Army Barracks in London, where Waste King not only cleared 68 cubic yards of mixed waste but also separated it, where possible, in order to make the waste easier to recycle. In all, Waste King collected – and recycled - 2.4 tonnes of wood and 1.1 tonne of cardboard and paper.
• A collection of materials which had been used in a TV advert for ‘Remember A Charity in Your Will’. Waste King’s, Glenn Currie, said: “We will be able to recycle 100 per cent of these materials – especially since the coffin used in the advert is made of Paper Mache.”
• A house clearance for a former ‘Blue Peter’ presenter.
