J&B to manage waste at Hartlepool Shopping Centre Source: www.letsrecycle.com
Waste management company J & B Recycling has been awarded a significant new contract with one of North East England’s largest shopping centres.
The company, which is based at Thomlinson Road in Hartlepool, will be responsible for all waste generated by Middleton Grange Shopping Centre in Hartlepool and its 140 tenants.
According to J&B, Middleton Grange is already noticing significant improvements to the way its waste is managed. On the back of the early success of the partnership, J & B Recycling has awarded Middleton Grange Shopping Centre with a Zero Waste to Landfill accreditation.
The amount and different types of waste that are recycled has already been increased, with a range of brand new colour coded bins being introduced to make things easier. Plans devised jointly by the Middleton Grange team and J & B Recycling are already in place to increase this even further over the next few months.
The Centre’s manager, Mark Rycraft, said: "We’re already noticing the difference in costs, which have been reduced by around 20 per cent and that means tenants will notice the difference too.”
