North West construction and maintenance specialist HMS is proud to support Recycle Week - helping to raise awareness about the importance of reducing landfill waste.
Environmental responsibility is a key consideration at HMS, where the business-wide Green Initiatives for Tomorrow (GIFT) initiative is driving continuous improvements and new, sustainable ways of working.
This approach is delivering positive impacts. HMS operates some of the cleanest, most efficient commercial vehicles on the market, thanks to the recently completed fleet renewal programme, while an innovative partnership with X-Met Metals is ensuring that end-of-life boilers and radiators are recycled, rather than landfilled.
Paint container recycling has been another major success. All empty metal and plastic paint containers are brought back to the HMS warehouse, where they are cleaned up and returned to the supplier PPG/Leyland Paints for recycling.
This low-cost solution has transformed waste costs significantly, proving that effective recycling strategies can be both environmentally and financially rewarding.
HMS Managing Director Paul Worthington explains, “We all have a responsibility to care for and protect the environment in which we operate.
“HMS strives to achieve continuous improvements in environmental performance and we encourage our partners and communities to join the effort to work sustainably.“
