Disposing of waste in an environmentally-friendly manner is crucial to your business.
We’re very excited to announce that our new range of waste & safety management products are now available.
Find out more from our website, or the promotional brochure
Skipper’s patent protected waste & safety management products provide a flexible and effective solution, with a wealth of fixing and display options. Being compatible with existing Skipper products makes the waste & safety management range intuitive for people already familiar with Skipper, as well as newcomers.
The range includes recycle bins for multi-purpose waste & recycling use, a safety dispenser which provides easy access to safety equipment such as earplugs and safety glasses, and a hand sanitiser bracket which will hold any dispenser up to a diameter of 75mm.
It is a flexible, fully modular waste management system that can be used individually anywhere or combined with Skipper™ posts and accessories to make a bespoke waste solution
These plastic waste bins are available in a range of different colours each supplied with a selection of labels to help you create your own colour-coded recycling system
What makes Skipper’s Waste Management range better than others on the market?
- Fantastically priced (much lower price than our competitors)
- Versatile – It can attach to a large variety of surfaces such as:
- Glass or tiled wall – with our Skipper Suction Cup
- Skippers Post and base system – with an additional post & base collar
- Post or Rail – with Skippers Cord Strap Clip
- Interior or exterior wall – with Skippers Wall Clip
- Plastic rather than metal making it much lighter to manoeuvre and transport.
- Robust – very tough plastic material
- Secure lids keep smells out
- The system allows the sack to pull downwards rather than up through the lid (which can cause spillages/accidents).
Zero Waste Scotland
Scotland is serious about making the transition to a circular economy, with a national strategy later this year. Working with others, ZWS (Zero Waste Scotland) has been at the forefront of identifying and researching opportunities and putting plans in place to turn the theory into practice. They are helping forward-thinking businesses, ranging from start-ups with innovative ideas to helping well-established businesses adapt their business models or expand their services.
They are also focusing on how the public can engage with different ways of using and reusing things. They recently ran a social media campaign called #MakeThingsLast which tried to get people thinking about new ways to repair, reuse and remanufacture items in everyday use.
Many progressive companies are already heading this way, marrying a combination of expertise, from behaviour change specialists that help companies reduce waste to supply chain and logistics capabilities that help with asset management, and materials and markets knowledge to ensure the maximum value can be extracted from items that are no longer needed.
The University of Edinburgh has refocused its approach to resource use. With the Zero Waste Scotland regulations acting as a catalyst for change, waste management company Biffa’s Edinburgh team has been working with staff and students to integrate zero waste and circular economy thinking across the vast university estate.
Four main questions drive the University’s resource management programme:
The University hosts a reuse portal enabling furniture, IT equipment and books to be redistributed to those who need it.
- Do we need the packaging?
The University has been working with its suppliers to cut the amount of packaging and to set up take-back schemes.
- Can it be recycled?
When a recyclable material reaches the waste stream, Biffa sorts and recycles it to keep it ‘in the loop’.
- Can we avoid landfill?
Waste materials that cannot be recycled are converted into fuel to generate renewable energy.
