message that McKinstry Skip Hire Ltd is a company that takes reducing waste seriously It is to be commended that ten years ago this company was sending approximately 90% of their waste to landfill and they are now recycling approximately 85% of all materials received in their yard. By signing this commitment today they have pledged to increase their recycling further to 95% in 2012." In 2008 McKinstry Skip Hire Ltd completed building a modern recycling facility that specialises in the collection of dry waste materials such as cardboard, paper, scrap metal, plastic and wood. This means that instead of burying it in the ground, this recycled waste can be turned into useful commodities
McKinstry Skip Hire Ltd has seen the value in what others perceive as worthless “rubbish” and can now turn these materials into valuable resources. This is good for the local economy and for the environment and will help meet EU targets and avoid costly fines. McKinstry Skip Hire Ltd is the fifth and one of the largest waste management companies to sign up to this commitment and I would urge other companies to follow suit and halve the waste they send to landfill.
