Council Offers Business Free Waste Audit for National Recycling Week

National Recycle Week begins on Monday, 12th September and to celebrate Conservative-led West Lindsey District Council is offering a free waste audit to local businesses.

To help local businesses play their part the Council’s officers are available to visit businesses, assess their needs and offer advice on how they could save money by recycling more of what they throw away.

The Council wants to help businesses save money by allowing them to recycle a wide range of materials, no matter where they are located in the district. They can sort the materials so businesses don’t have to and there is no need for a number of separate bins, so they also save space.

Conservative Councillor Mrs. Sheila Bibb, Chairman of the Council’s Prosperous Communities Committee, said:

“We pledge that our service will always be reliable, cost effective and provide the environmental benefits that customers demand.

“I’m proud to say that we are one of the only commercial waste operators in the area that can enable your business to become virtually zero landfill. All of your recyclable material is sent to specialist treatment facilities and made into new products. All other general and non-recyclable waste is sent to a Lincolnshire Energy from Waste plant (EfW) which powers local homes.

“We’re sure that by joining our recycling service, your business can save money and do its bit for the environment at the same time.”

The materials that can now be recycled through the Council’s commercial mixed recycling service are the same as those in the West Lindsey household collection service and includes:

  • Cardboard and paper
  • Glass bottles and jars
  • Aluminium cans
  • Steel tins (should be rinsed out)
  • Plastic bottles
  • Waxed juice or milk Cartons

West Lindsey’s Commercial Waste and Recycling Service can offer a business a range of collection options to suit their needs. Designed to be a friendly, local service it is reliable, flexible and will provide businesses with great value for money.

It has tailored so that businesses are in control of collections. Collections using bags are also available if space is a problem.
