REMOVING SINGLE USE PLASTIC WATER BOTTLES
In January 2018, we banned single use plastic water bottles from all of our client sites and were all very humbled to receive a letter of congratulations from Sir David Attenborough for our environmental achievements.
REDUCING VEHICLE EMISSIONS
We work hard to reduce our environmental impact and another area we have had great success is with our fleet vehicles. In 2018, we reduced our fleet CO? emissions by 49%!
CONVERTING WASTE OIL INTO BIO-DIESEL
All waste oil is collected from our sites and transferred in bulk to a recycling facility in Liverpool. It is heated, cleaned and filtered, ready to be converted into a fuel that gives more than 86% greenhouse carbon saving compared to regular fossil diesel.
RECYCLING COFFEE GROUNDS
Used coffee grounds are great for the garden. The benefit of using coffee grounds as a fertiliser is that it adds organic material to the soil, which improves drainage, water retention and aeration in the soil. The used coffee grounds will also help microorganisms beneficial to plant growth thrive as well as attract earthworms.
