October Newsletter

Congratulations to East Midlands Coatings who have achieved Credibly Green status. Having measured their environmental impact they are looking to reduce their electricity costs and carbon emissions by installing PVC curtains across the warehouse doors, investigating greener energy suppliers and installing solar panels.

In September we joined our sister company Frith Resource Management at RWM2017. We hosted a “cash for trash” game.Visitors to the stand had to guess the value of a bag of mixed recycling. For each guess we donated £1 to Waste Aid. In total we raised £204. The winner of £50 M&S vouchers with the nearest estimate was Francis Terry of Sims Metal Management.

Each year it surprises us how quickly winter comes around. With the rising cost of gas and electricity we all need to look at saving money on our heating costs. Here are some energy saving tips for you.

We have been working with Coventry City Council Communications Centre and Coventry Waste Solutions to update their ISO9001 accreditation to the new 2015 standard. This is in addition to the ISO14001 support that we also offer.

Our Director Paul talked at the Black Country Chamber Expo about helping businesses compete with enhanced green credentials, how to improve tendering scores, access to new markets and lowering operating costs.

We had great fun hosting the Macmillan Cancer coffee morning. All the staff got involved in baking loads of yummy cakes and ended up being something of a competition. We raised £317. Thank you to all of you who called in.

We are now a drop off point for your waste writing implements. We are working with Castlefields School and Terracycle to keep old pens and markers out of landfill. They are recycled and turned into new plastic products. For every item we collect we get 1p which is donated to Waste Aid.

Networking group Bridgnorth is Business meets every third Wednesday of the month at the Woodberry Inn only £10 which includes coffee, bacon butty and a donation to Rupert’s Revenge. The next meeting is Oct 18th, 8.15-10am email us if you would like more details.
