In January 2019 Warnes Projects launched a new recycling initiative which reduces the negative impact of construction waste on the environment. We are minimising landfill through effectively recycling and repurposing materials from work sites and giving the profits to local hospice, St Barnabas House, with an impressive £2,058 raised so far.
Here are a few words about this directive from Steve Hobbs, Warnes Projects Founder and Company Director: “St Barnabas House give amazing care to local people which I learnt first-hand last year when they cared for my Father. I really wanted to give something back, hence this initiative. It started as a way to recycle and raise some funds for St Barnabas House, but has to my surprise, been hugely popular with our clients, subcontractors and our staff, who have all really embraced the initiative.
“Recycling is of course very important, so we wanted to demonstrate corporate social responsibility through our Environment Policy and with our on-site recycling scheme we can produce a report for each of our clients at the end of their project, which shows how much landfill they have saved. And even better, the recycled materials, instead of going to landfill become a charitable donation. It really is a win win.”
To understand the real impact of the scheme here is just one small example of how this initiative works in pratice. We received feedback from Mr. Walker from A3 Air Ltd in Chichester who received and repurposed site waste materials: “Thank you for the carpet tiles, surplus materials from the office suite refit. We’ve just moved office and the cost so far has been considerable. Using the tiles has saved us further expense, and they look terrific. I personally can’t stand waste.”
Whether it’s about fundraising, recycling or how Warnes Projects work with customers to meet their corporate social responsibilities, Steve is very passionate about this initiative and is happy to discuss it with anyone who might be interested to learn more, please get in touch by phone on 01243 558570 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
