Recycling Lives retain ISO accreditation

The Recycling Lives commercial arm is proud to announce that it has managed to retain its quality assured ISO awards.

The International Standardisation Organisation has conducted its yearly audit and found each of Recycling Lives sites is performing at the highest standard of Health and Safety and Quality management.

To obtain the ISO 9001 standard award we have had to produce a set of procedures that cover all key processes in the business; monitor processes to ensure they are effective; keep adequate records; check output machinery for defects, with appropriate and corrective action where necessary; regularly reviewing individual processes and the quality system itself as well as facilitating continual improvement.

Effectively the ISO 9001 helps us to create an electronic bible of our business.

To customers and potential business partners ISO awards certify and assure that we are applying formalised business processes.

The ISO 14001 standard has been awarded to us because we have minimised how our operations negatively affect the environment and promoted effective environmental management.

Recycling Lives Director of Operations Alasdair Jackson said: “I am very proud of the whole Recycling Lives team, who together have managed to maintain our business standards at the highest level.”
