Caring care home chooses Waste King

Care home chain, Sunrise Senior Living, has chosen the specialist collections, clearance and recycling company, Waste King to collect a range of waste – not just ‘bulk’ but also hazardous waste – from its home in Chorleywood, Hertfordshire.

Waste King’s managing director, Glenn Currie, explained: “Not only are our operatives able – and licensed – to handle any waste products but we save the care home staff the time and trouble of collecting, loading, segregating and disposing of the waste themselves.

“This means that, by using Waste King, Sunrise Senior Living can be sure that it’s maximising the amount of its waste that’s recycled – minimising the amount that goes to landfill and, thus, ensuring that it’s doing its bit to look after the environment. In addition, where there’s hazardous waste to collect from the home – including plasterboard, electric bulbs and so on – it can be sure that all this waste is being disposed of in-line with the law’s requirements and in the safest, most environmentally friendly way possible.”

All of Waste King’s fleet of vehicles are equipped with scales and so its operatives can instantly tell the care home staff how much waste has been collected – for Waste Audit purposes.

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.

For its commercial clients, Waste King provides recycling and waste collection services including waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) collections and site waste management plans (SWMP).  The company also offers confidential document destruction.
