Oct. 18, 2012 - PRLog -- Waste King, the specialist collections, clearance and recycling company, has received a certificate from the British Heart Foundation (BHF) recording the BHF’s ‘heartfelt thanks’ for Waste King giving the charity 19 tonnes of recycled books, DVDs and music CDs that can be reused and sold to support the BHF’s work.

Waste King’s managing director, Glenn Currie, said: “Last year, Waste King installed recycling points at its premises in the Frogmore Industrial Estate in Hemel Hempstead to help raise funds for its chosen charities including the BHF. While members of the public have contributed to these collections, the collections have also received a major boost from Waste King’s house clearance service.

“Waste King’s business ethos is to reduce long term pollution to a minimum and thus help protect the environment for current and future generations,” Currie continued. “Currently, less than ten per cent of everything that Waste King’s operatives collect - from any and every source - goes to landfill.

“Moreover, as part of its corporate social responsibility (CSR) strategy, Waste King wants to promote the benefits of recycling not just in environmental terms – helpful though that is – but also in terms of directly benefiting people, through the work of charities such as the BHF,” he added.

Waste King’s recycling and waste collection services include house, garden and garage clearance, wait and load services, waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) collections and site waste management plans (SWMP).  The company also offers confidential document destruction.
