Wastecycle – leading resource and management company – welcomed almost 300 guests to their Annual Health, Safety & Environment Day.
Businesses from far and wide came to the event in Nottingham on June 8, including British Gypsum, GF Tomlinson and Kier construction.
For the event, visitors watched a live vehicle recovery and plant precision demonstrations from Nottingham Fire & Rescue and Wastecycle, a look at one of Wastecycles nine new fleet vehicles which is packed with safety features such as side cameras, side radars and cyclist warning signals.
They also went on a tour of Wastecycle’s operating facilities to gain insight into how they process the 450,000 tonnes of waste they handle each year, and were also given the opportunity to have a birds-eye-view the facilities in a 50ft cherry picker.
Wastecycle’s managing director, Paul Needham said: “The site tour proved popular, with several customers commenting that seeing the recycling processes in action will encourage them to think more about the waste they produce. The cherry picker was a huge hit, as were the precision challenges between our machine operators to stack pallets as accurately and quickly as possible. Best of all I think everyone got into the spirit of health and safety and why it’s so important.”
Wastecycle were recently recognised for their commitment to health and safety by winning 2016’s Health & Safety Award at the Saint-Gobain Construction Products supplier awards along with it’s seventh consecutive gold medal RoSPA award.
