Borough of Poole Council - Wheeled Bin collections and deliveries off to flying start
CK Services, a division of the CK Group, has been appointed by Craemer UK to provide wheeled bin distribution and recycling services to Borough of Poole.
The project will deliver enhanced kerbside recycling services to residents of the Borough. As well as the distribution of new wheelie bins, the CK Services team will collect around 61,000 end of life wheeled bins which will be recycled through the CK Group recycling plant in Lincolnshire.
Since Borough of Poole launched their blue bin recycling service ten years ago many more items can be recycled and it has proven to be far more cost effective to enable residents to recycle more of their waste. The Council has agreed that the standard bin provision for all properties is one large blue recycling bin and one smaller black refuse bin. As many of the original black bins are beginning to age all households in Poole will be have a ‘bin swap’ from June 2014 onwards.
Mark Parsons, Street Scene Team Manager for Borough of Poole Council commented, “The teams have excelled in working together to solve any issues quickly and efficiently with superb levels of communication and prompt and pro-active responses to any issues or concerns. CK Services have provided regular daily reports which have given Borough of Poole a clear update on the current position."
The project is slightly more complex than usual as we are also distributing black bins, however the teams are confident that they will overcome any challenges."
He added, "This is a great example of partnership working and a credit to all involved.”
CK Services work with over 300 local authorities as well as most of the major wheeled bin manufacturers and waste management companies throughout the entire UK.
