St Albans, Herts, United Kingdom, 2010/03/24 - The specialist collections and recycling company, Waste King, believes that there are signs that the British economy is starting its recovery with an increase in construction and maintenance activity in both the trade and domestic sectors.
Glenn Currie, of Waste King, explained: “Not only have we been receiving more enquiries in recent weeks for waste collection from domestic customers, who are now installing new kitchens and bathrooms, but we have increased the number of our regular trade customers by 30 per cent in the last month.
“That suggests to us that this increase in activity is more than can be explained away by the onset of spring giving a traditional boost to building and construction projects,” he added.
Waste King, which 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, services companies in the fields of property management and maintenance; interior design; specialist renovation, and general construction.
“As far as our trade customers are concerned, we’ve also noticed that they are using fewer skips in which to dispose of their waste,” Currie said. “Instead, they are choosing to dispose of their waste in a more environmentally friendly way – and thus reducing the amount of the waste that ends up in landfill.
“Obviously, this is good news for the environment – and for us, since our staff segregate customers’ waste, making it easier to recycle and, sometimes, re-use, greatly reducing the waste burden on the environment,” he continued.
Waste King has publicly pledged its commitment to recycle a substantial and significant percentage of all the waste it collects from its customers – thus avoiding using the landfill option wherever possible. Moreover, it has promised that all the waste it collects is disposed of in an environmentally friendly way.
