Recycling Lives waste management department set to expand

Due to the on-going success of the waste management department, Recycling Lives is pleased to announce that the department is set to expand and will be able to handle an increase in the number of inputs we process.

With the Recycling Lives scrap buying service moving to another location, plans are now in place to expand the waste management department in order to meet the increased demand for our services.

By expanding the site, we’ll be able to make the workplace an even safer environment and improve our recycling procedures and systems. We always aim to respond to changes in the manufacturing industry and provide effective recycling facilities for new and emerging technologies. The new space will allow us to develop increasing effective recycling procedures and offer first class recycling services.

It’s also hoped that the expansion will enable us to offer more work placements to Residents of the Recycling Lives social welfare charity. The charity helps homeless people, ex-armed forces personnel, ex-offenders, people dealing with disabilities and people facing unemployment by providing safe accommodation, training opportunities and work placements.

By offering Residents the appropriate training, we ensure that they’re fully equipped to undertake work experience and that they gain the relevant qualifications to enable them to find long term employment.

Although Residents also undertake work placements with our corporate partners and at our Community Dotcom schemes, many Residents work with Recycling Lives in order to gain practical real-life work experience.

Currently two Residents, Craig and Jeff, are working in the waste management department at the Red Scar site and have both proven themselves to be extremely hard workers and integral to the team.

By offering an extensive range of waste management and recycling services, we believe that we can help businesses effectively adhere to their waste management and duty of care responsibilities as well as offering recycling opportunities to the public.

The new and larger waste management department will continue to offer the services we currently provide and we look forward to introducing new recycling processes in due course.
