It’s not (always) easy being green…but we need to try!

As prominently featured in the news; choosing a more sustainable way to live / eat / breathe is key to our future. We won’t use this blog to bark on about it, we all know it’s important. But we want to focus this month on our ongoing efforts as a company to recycle where possible and to help fix the future!

We are a waste management company, and waste is inevitable. However, Site Solutions have the processes in place to ensure if we can recycle, we will.

Whilst we are proactive being sustainable 12 months of the year, we wanted to use February as a month to share some of our green tips and processes.

We are paperless (almost) & recycle all paper

Like most businesses in this era, we are proud to be an (almost) paperless office. Invoices, receipts, statements etc. These are all electronic and sent to our customers via email. We also ask our suppliers to invoice us electronically to keep post to a minimum. Naturally, we also recycle any small amounts of paperwork we do receive. Glass and paper recycling is important to us.

Green commuting

We chose an office location central to our homes to save the use of cars. And so we can pop in and out when we need to, without time stuck in traffic! All members of staff live close to the office and walk or bike into work! A morning walk into work enjoying the beautiful Malvern hills is a great way to start the day! That’s right, we’re based in beautiful Worcestershire.

…and the rest

We turn off any office equipment not in use. And we try to keep all our electronics up to date and PAT tested to ensure they are running as energy efficient as possible. Old computers and printers are recycled correctly. In fact, check out our handy blog on our tips to recycle old IT equipment.

Recycle, recycle, recycle

Recycling waste is a fundamental part of our disposal solutions.

Our main aim is to ensure that all waste collected and disposed of is carried out efficiently and sustainably. We collect just about any form of waste and dispose of it correctly, from asbestos to scrap metal.

As a wise green frog once said:

“It’s not easy being green”

But as a responsible business, we try and make a difference where we can.
