PPE donation boost for Recycling Lives' residents

High quality PPE donated after a safety clothing ‘amnesty’ will be proudly worn by Recycling Lives staff.

Styles&Wood, the Sale-based property services and project delivery specialist for the building and development sector, held a personal protective equipment (PPE) amnesty which yielded hundreds of items of workwear.

After their employees and contractors ‘came clean’ and returned those stashed away high-vis vests, hard hats and other garments, they decided to donate them to Recycling Lives charity activities earlier this month.

Charity director at Recycling Lives, Neil Flanagan, said:

“What a great gesture from Styles&Wood. The safety wear will be used by disadvantaged and marginalised people going through our programme of training and work experience, as well as those already established and working at Recycling Lives.”

Karen Morley, HR director at Styles&Wood said:

“As a group we feel really strongly about supporting and giving back to the communities we operate in whether through volunteering, charity events or donations.

“In 2014, we held our first PPE amnesty collection and donated all our old PPE to Recycling Lives.

“We got in touch again to hold another amnesty and it’s fantastic that our old branded PPE has again gone to a great local cause and will be put to good use by Recycling Lives.”
