  • Five Star Award for West Midlands Site

    I am delighted to be able to announce that after a very stringent and thorough audit the British Safety Council has judged our West Midlands Site to have achieved the council’s highest award of 5 stars.

     

    Please accept my sincere thanks for you all making this happen and a special thank you to Jason Davies. Our West Midlands site has come on a long way from 2 years ago when we brought it out of its “moth balled” state and began full time operations there again. We have heavily invested in the site and our team there, and this achievement is a fitting recognition of everyone’s hard work and dedication.

     

    As you are all aware the Recycling Industry has the 2nd worst record within the UK for injury and death of its employees, we at Environcom are dedicated to ensuring everyone goes home safely and this accreditation confirms our commitment to this now and going forward.

     

    Best regards
