Waste King helps charity get ready for Camilla’s visit

Any impending visitor is enough to make us want to ‘tidy up a bit’ but, when that visitor is a member of the Royal Family, it’s an even more impelling reason for us to get rid of unsightly waste.

So, when HRH the Duchess of Cornwall was about to visit Medical Detection Dogs, a Milton Keynes-based charity that works with researchers, NHS Trusts and Universities, the charity contacted Waste King to arrange for its operatives to collect some old, waste carpet tiles.

According to Waste King’s managing director, Glenn Currie, the specialist collections, clearance and recycling company removed some eight… Continue reading

Skip bags alternative

If you want to get rid of relatively small amounts of heavy, loose waste – perhaps rubble and soil – you could consider using a skip bag.

Skip bags are canvas bags. There are two popular sizes of skip bag – to take 1.0 or 1.5 cubic yards waste – but there is also a 4.5 cubic yard bag. This 4.5 cubic yard bag is from the Hippo Bag brand (a brand name of Hippo waste). Hippo waste offers the other sizes of bags too, along with brands such as Bag-it, Rhino bag and Skip Bag.

You can buy these… Continue reading

Achieving greener waste

Achieving greener waste

 Taking care of our environment is, increasingly, a key issue for individuals as well as for governments. Where individuals are concerned, this means acting responsibly when getting rid of unwanted things – and that’s where Waste King can help.

This means that only around 11 per cent of everything the company collects goes to… Continue reading

Caring care home chooses Waste King

Care home chain, Sunrise Senior Living, has chosen Waste King to collect a range of waste – not just ‘bulk’ but also hazardous waste – from its home in Chorleywood, Hertfordshire.

Wasteking cage system

Wasteking introduce the all new cage system brought to you to help maximize recycling opportunities and possible reduced cost of waste management.

Portable Offices’ staff can now put any waste products – from plasterboard and electrical goods to ‘mixed waste’ – into the cage. Once in the cage, these waste products can be easily segregated so that they can be more easily recycled – leaving only a small percentage of the waste to go to landfill.

Then, when the cage is full, Waste King’s operatives come along and remove the waste which, since it is segregated, is easily and speedily removed.

Office Clearance

Among the things you need to consider when embarking on an office clearance are:

1. What do you want to keep?
Decide what you want to keep – and take these items away, presumably to the new office. Only leave the items in the (old) office that want taken away and disposed of. Not only is this ‘neater’ but it makes it easier for the professionals – who’ll be clearing the office – to give an accurate estimate of the cost involved. It also makes it easier for them to carry out the office clearance.

2. Do things in good… Continue reading

House Clearance

Usually, it’s never a good time when you have to do a house clearance. However, there are some things you can do to ensure that the whole process works as smoothly as possible.

1. Take time to plan
It’s likely to take one person a day to sort out a room – or two people, half a day each. It’s important to allow – and allocate – yourself sufficient time to get everything ready before calling in professionals to take the things away. That way, you’ll reduce the pressure – and your stress levels.

2. Decision time
The tough… Continue reading
