Go green and cut costs with the Councils’ commercial waste service
Businesses and organisations looking to cut costs and go green are being encouraged to sign up to Adur & Worthing Councils’ revamped commercial waste service.
With many firms now coming out of lockdown, the Councils are looking to reach out to companies, charities and community groups to help them dispose of waste responsibly while saving them money and the environment along the way.
A new campaign highlights the benefits of the commercial waste service, namely that it is cheaper, greener and more trusted than alternative providers.
As the strapline goes: “It’s our business to help companies reduce waste and cut costs”.
One of those businesses already benefiting is ETI Ltd, which has three sites in Worthing and specialises in manufacturing digital thermometer probes for the food industry.
Thanks to working closely with the Councils’ commercial waste team, more than half of the waste now collected is recycling which has saved the business 40% in costs.
Debbie Bulled, of ETI Ltd, said: “All businesses, large or small, have a duty of care to ensure that their waste is disposed of safely and efficiently and Adur & Worthing Councils provide the means to do exactly that.
“Recycling is, and will continue to be, an essential part of our waste management strategy and this service helps to meet our environmental objectives and reduce our associated costs at the same time.”
With more than 30 years experience, the Councils has an excellent track record of offering regular and one-off collections to thousands of organisations across the area.
There are no hidden costs, with fees coming in at 10% cheaper than national competitors. Plus they are VAT free for those based in the Adur and Worthing area.
For those companies looking to go green, the Councils offer a dedicated recycling service at reduced cost which could save local firms up to 40%.
With a locally-based fleet and optimised routes, organisations also know that the amount of fuel used is kept to a minimum.
All collections are compliant with UK and EU legislation meaning clients have peace of mind knowing their waste will be disposed of in a responsible way.
Cllr Emma Evans, Adur District Council’s Executive Member for Environment, said: “Our commercial waste team do an excellent job supporting local businesses and organisations across the district, providing a top-quality service that never lets people down.
“So if you know a business that wants to reduce waste and cut costs, I urge you to put them in our touch with our fantastic team.”
Cllr Edward Crouch, Worthing Borough Council’s Executive Member for Digital & Environmental Services, said: “We know that lockdown has placed enormous pressure on local businesses and charities which is why our newly-revamped commercial waste service makes it easy, simple and cheaper for organisations to dispose of their waste.
“There are no hidden costs and we're fully compliant with UK and EU legislation. With most fees VAT free too, there’s no reason to delay getting in touch with us today.”
