Laks Electric Ltd takes the green route to refurbishment

Recycling Lives has been called in to assist Laks Electric with their refurbishment of Batleys Cash and Carry premises in Newbridge.
Recycling Lives were contacted by Laks Electric ltd., who have been upgrading the lighting at Batley’s Newbridge warehouse, and asked whether they would be able to provide a collection and recycling service for strip lights, aluminium reflectors and cables. The items were taking up a lot of room while being stored on-site, so efficient collection and environmentally responsible disposal methods were of primary importance.

Recycling Lives were able to respond quickly to the enquiry, offering Laks Electric a high rate for the scrap materials, with skip hire included in the price. But, when Laks Electric’s Projects Manager and Director Shajaad Lakhanpal learnt about the great work that Recycling Lives undertakes in the local community, he waived the payment and requested that it be donated to the Recycling Lives social welfare charity.

Mr Lakhanpal also expressed an interest in working with Recycling Lives and using their collection and recycling services across other sites, so we look forward to working with him and the rest of his team in the near future.

Corporate partners such as Laks Electric, who prioritise environmental and social responsibility as an integral part of their commercial operations, are vital to the success of Recycling Lives and its social welfare charity. Every contract that Recycling Lives wins, due to its exceptional recycling rates, innovative technological developments and unrivalled customer service, helps to support the disadvantaged people taking part in the Recycling Lives residential and training programmes.

These schemes help to rebuild the lives of people who are going through hard times, giving them a place to stay, and the confidence skills they need to start over.

Recycling Lives Operations Director, Alasdair Jackson, commented:

“We’re looking forward to developing a long and fruitful working relationship with Laks Electric Ltd. and would like to thank Shajaad and the team for their generosity in waiving the value of the scrap metal from this initial collaboration.”

“’Every contribution to the work that Recycling Lives undertakes with disadvantaged people makes a huge difference to communities across the North West. By choosing to work with Recycling Lives, Laks Electric are making an environmentally, socially and ethically responsible choice. We look forward to delivering top quality, efficient and commercially sound service over the course of future contracts.”
