More recycling options for Blackpool's businesses

Emprise Blackpool, the trade waste recycling service, has developed a new service this month to offer local businesses an opportunity to recycle more waste and to save money in the process.

The company has been collecting glass and metal waste from Blackpool businesses since 2006 and has gained over 100 customers in its first six months of operation.

It has developed a new service that collects not only metal and glass, but also paper, cardboard and plastic bottles.

Nimtechs managing director of project partners David Bowker said: For a long time, businesses have been telling us that they would like to see more waste materials being collected and so we have been trying to find a viable way of collecting different waste streams without having to increase the price of the service and without asking clients to use lots of different bins.

It has been a very difficult task but the team has worked together very well and were delighted to have found a solution that should suit everyone.

The system will make it easier for customers to segregate the various materials using carrier bags, to place them all into a single bin, ready for collection.

Emprise Blackpool is a European Union funded programme and a not-for-profit venture that is being piloted in Blackpool with the support of Blackpool Council.
