  • Launch of Domestic Electrical Spares Product Range

    Today we launched our new “Domestic Electrical Spares” product range to compliment the reuse activities of white goods, which we are the UK’s market leaders.

    We sold our first spare before it even got properly started.  The first purchase was made by Toni Dawson who was presented with a specially wrapped edition of a refurbished fridge shelf.

    We have long been using these spare parts from machines, which cannot be repaired, to give another appliance a new lease of life.

    Our reuse of whole appliances is popular, providing refurbished high-quality washing machines, ovens, and fridges to the UK and European consumers at attractive prices.

    Our next phase aim is to provide affordable spare parts for people to undertake simple repairs or parts replacements in their own homes.

    This is a further demonstration of Environcom’s commitment to the waste hierarchy by offering a range of replacement spare parts nationwide, we allow people to extend the lives of their own domestic appliances, supporting the prevention of the generation of e-waste in the first place.

    Spare parts for sale include frequently damaged or broken parts such as fridge shelves, salad trays, door shelves as well as electrical components. All spares are cleaned and tested and marketed on our website https://lnkd.in/dVMiXq6.

  • MRW National Recycling Awards

    The results of the MRW National Recycling Awards (NRAs) were revealed on 27 January during a virtual ceremony where hundreds of people gathered online to champion the industry’s achievements.

    With 17 categories, the awards cover every aspect of the recycling and waste management industry, from Food Waste Initiative to Recycling Excellence. The NRAs bring together recycling and waste management professionals to recognise and celebrate best practice and innovation in recycling and waste management. The awards provide industry recognition and unrivaled networking opportunities.

    In partnership with Repic, Environcom has been awarded Highly Commended for Partnership Excellence – Commercial.

    On LinkedIn, Environcom CEO, Cris Stephenson, commented…

    “Very pleased and proud of both teams at Environcom and Repic as Highly Commended was a very good result especially given the nature of the award which was “partnership” and not the actual technology of CARRIE.

    I really hope it is a sign that the whole marketplace is maturing from an adversarial approach to a partnership approach. I came from the Logistics, road transport market and when I joined that industry, companies like M&S were lauded for their aggressive approach to suppliers ultimately topped by one of Britain’s biggest supermarkets methodology but new Retailers and indeed some of the old ones realised that contrary to the mantra “screw your supplier down and you get the best price & service” the opposite was true for long term relationships. Because what occurs is that both companies are hell-bent on getting one over on each other and only working for their own goals that the obvious cost and service benefits that suit both are missed. This damages both parties in the long term and ill serves the ultimate customer….….us or, in the case of our industry, the Environment.”

    Graeme Milne, Strategic Business Development Director of Repic Ltd also commented…

    “We were delighted to be nominated with our friends Environcom Ltd for the “Partnership Excellence - Commercial” award at today’s National Recycling Awards, hosted by comedian Tom Allen. Very pleased to receive a Highly Commended from the judges.”

  • The Secret World of your Rubbish - Channel 5

    Prior to the March Lockdown, Production Company Knickerbockerglory TV visited our Grantham site to shoot a documentary called The Secret World of Your Rubbish: Series 2.

    The film crew spent three days following the entire process of both recycling and re-use items from start to finish, involving various members of our employees in the filming.

    The show was aired on Channel 5, over two episodes, on Thursday 30th July and Thursday 13th August.

    If you didn't manage to see it, you will find it on catch up, via My5.

  • COVID-19

    We continue to be open for business and to serve our customers.

    We will closely monitor the developments in relation to COVID-19, our top priority is the health of our employees, customers and suppliers. We must also ensure that both our sites remain open for our customers and the environment. We therefore have decided to take further steps to avoid transmission of infection to our staff and suppliers.

    To that end we have made temporary changes to the way in which we operate. These changes took effect from last week but we continue to change them as advised by the Government.

    • Everyone attending the site will be subject to a non-invasive temperature check. • Should you show an elevated temperature you will be asked to leave and advised to follow the governments instruction on self-isolation • To minimise the number of people we have on-site at any one time, please advise us by phone that you will be visiting before your arrival. • Only enter the weighbridge office one at a time, this will be controlled as the weighbridge will only allow one vehicle on at a time to enter. But in the event a vehicle is leaving at the same time please wait outside. • After preparing the vehicle for offloading, drivers must return to their vehicle before our staff approach to conduct an inspection or to offload. • Please note, the turn-around of deliveries may be slower due to the necessary interaction restrictions. • Once the material is unloaded or loaded you will be required to leave site. We will then weigh and you can proceed as usual. • We will insist upon and enforce physical distancing at both sites to protect both you and our employees.

    We aim to resume normal service as soon as the Government adjusts its guidance and we will continue to keep you informed.

  • BBC1 Inside Out - 10th February 2020

    Retired scrap dealer and Presenter, Geoff Burch visited Environcom for a site tour, and interviewed Cris Stephenson about recycling and reusing old electrical items safely and rethinking how we consume them in the first place

  • Introducing CARRIE

    The UK's first Compressor Automated Removal and Recycling Equipment.

  • Environcom Appliance drop off point

    Environcom makes it easier to dispose of your electrical waste and help address the issue of fly tipping of electrical appliances and supports the Circular Economy in Grantham

     

    Like many other towns and cities, Grantham’s waste site is only open during restricted times disposing of your electrical waste is therefore sometimes very inconvenient. It also suffers from the plight of fly tipping; waste illegally dumped by criminals to avoid the cost of disposal.  This causes environmental harm as hazardous substances leach into the environment, and creates a clean-up cost, paid for by local residents through council tax.   Environcom is turning this negative into a positive by offering a 24 hour 7 days a week drop off facility at its site in Spittlegate Level, Grantham for domestic electrical items.  Any items dropped off will be examined, repaired and tested by Environcom to see if they can be given a second lease of life through one of its charity partners in the UK.  If not, the appliance will be fully recycled in accordance with the Environmental Legislation and the materials will be put back into manufacturing.

    Cris Stephenson, CEO of Environcom stated “We hope this initiative will be seen by our local residents as a more convenient and environmentally beneficial solution compared to using the local Household Waste Recycling Centre fulfilling their duty of care, and also a credible alternative by those who may be tempted to dump their electronic waste. If it proves successful, we will be able to increase the number of local jobs and deliver a truly circular approach to dealing with electrical waste”

    Environcom will accept all complete domestic electrical equipment free of charge at its site at Spittlegate Level, Grantham, NG31 7UH. Check website for details or call 0844 736 0071

    Environcom will accept whole electrical appliances only, appliances which are missing key components may be rejected.

    Environcom will accept:-

    Fridges / Freezers – (compressor not to be removed)

    Washing Machines / Tumble driers

    Ovens / hobs/ cooker hoods

    Televisions

    Small electrical appliances

    Printers – Please remove ink cartridges

     

    from domestic households. If you are a waste collector, please contact customer services to arrange delivery slots

     

     

  • Introducing our 24 hour Drop-off zone

    We are pleased to be offering local householders a 24 hour, seven days a week drop-off point for their recyclable electrical waste.

    We think it will make it more convenient for residents who want to dispose of their electrical waste during the week because the council's recycling site is only open Friday to Monday during the day.

    The drop-off point will help fight against fly-tipping in the area and, as a result, stop harmful substances leaking into the environment which has to be cleaned up at a cost to residents through council tax.

    Any items dropped off at Environcom will be repaired and tested to see if they can be given a second lease of life through one of its charity partners in the UK. If not, the appliance will be fully recycled in accordance with environmental legislation and the materials will be put back into manufacturing.

    Cris Stephenson, CEO of Environcom, said: “We hope this initiative will be seen by our local residents as a more convenient and environmentally beneficial solution compared to using the local household waste recycling centre fulfilling their duty of care, and also a credible alternative by those who may be tempted to dump their electronic waste. If it proves successful, we will be able to increase the number of local jobs and deliver a truly circular approach to dealing with electrical waste.”

    Environcom says it will accept all complete domestic electrical equipment free of charge at its site at Spittlegate Level. It may reject any appliances that are missing key components.

    Residents can take the following appliances to the drop-off point:

    • Fridges/freezers (compressor not to be removed)
    • Washing machines/tumble dryers
    • Ovens/hobs/cooker hoods
    • Televisions
    • Small electrical appliances
    • Printers (remove ink cartridges)

    How to locate the drop off point.

    After entering the carpark along the front of the Environcom building, please carry on towards the smaller carpark to the left of the grassy area. You'll see a bicycle parking area to your left and beyond that is our new drop off bay. Please press the intercom to alert a representative that you are depositing your recyclables.
