Lister Trade Frames welcomed its local MP to its Stoke-on-Trent premises to demonstrate the company’s environmental policies.
Tristan Hunt, MP for Stoke-on-Trent Central, Tristram Hunt, was shown Lister’s recycling initiative including the recycling zone with dedicated skips and hoppers for the segregation of all the differing waste construction materials that their Trade Customers return to them.
“We were delighted that Tristram Hunt MP wanted to learn more about Listers efforts,” said managing director Mark Warren. “It helps reinforce to our staff and customers the importance of the work we do supporting local businesses and helping the environment in any way we can.”
Three years ago when the scheme started, Listers sent 13 tonnes of old PVC Frames to be recycled. This year they will have sent well over 100 tonnes plus another 120 tonnes of other plastics, cardboard and metals to be recycled.
Hunt said: “My priorities for the city are simple. I want to see private sector-led regeneration with more jobs and inward investment; and a more positive profile for the city. Listers success is helping Stoke on Trent become more successful too.”
