New waste collection opportunity for businesses in St Albans
At the moment, businesses in the area have to arrange the getting rid of their rubbish themselves. As a result of this there is a number of different services operating in the city to take the waste away.
The local businesses who use these services claim that it can be a prolonged process as well as the number of service vehicles causing traffic on the roads. Apparently it can also be a struggle to get in contact with service providers regarding any issues.
St Albans Business Improvement Direct approached six different rubbish collection providers to help offer a solution to this. In the end, KP Waste were chosen to partner up with St Albans BID.
One single rubbish removal company was chosen in hopes of reducing the amount of vehicles on the road for the collection of waste. Furthermore, the reduced number of vehicles will benefit the environment. The incentive for businesses to use this is that the more who participate, the lower the cost of the service.
Helen Burridge, the manager of St Albans Business Improvement Direct stated, “We are pleased to be launching this partnership and are excited about the real benefit it will bring. After working on a commercial waste review, we have a clear idea of what businesses in St Albans need from their waste and recycling collections. We are confident that KP Waste is the right provider with the right skillset and infrastructure to support our businesses.”
KP Waste director, Kevin Hill, said, "After many years working in St Albans and with all our recycling sites less than three miles outside of St Albans, we are delighted to partner in this way. No waste collected under this contract will go to landfill and we look forward to improving the businesses' recycling streams to pass savings back to the businesses. This kind of contract offers the best value for the businesses and we know we can deliver the service and quality that they expect."
