Cawleys, a family-run local recycling and waste management company, is delighted to announce the launch of its brand-new van clearance service, Van-ish.
The new Van-ish service will operate out of its regional depots in Luton, Milton Keynes and Wellingborough and will offer a waste clearance service to both businesses and private households across Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Northamptonshire and beyond.
Designed to help customers quickly and easily dispose of unwanted items, the aptly named service will be completely contact-free with full covid-safe procedures in place. During the current lockdown Cawleys’ service will provide customers with a useful disposal avenue, without the need for trips to the refuse centre or the cost of hiring a skip.
All collected items will be delivered back to Cawleys’ depots where they will be sorted and segregated for the appropriate recycling stream, providing a full-circle sustainable solution.
Anna Cawley, Customer Services Director, commented: “We’re launching our new ‘Vani-ish’ service during a period when many businesses and individuals may have extra time on their hands to have a clear-out, or carry out a refurbishment. Our service provides a cost-effective and safe way to make unwanted items ‘vanish’”.
Cawleys has also announced a major partnership with the UK Battery Industrialisation Centre (UKBIC), a pioneering, publicly funded, £130m battery development production facility comprising 18,500 square metres, which is due to be fully operational later this year. It allows organisations in the UK to prove whether their promising technologies (from electrode and cell materials through to battery modules and packs) can be manufactured at the required volume, speed, performance and cost to be commercially successful.
Dedicated to helping organisations reduce, re-use and recycle waste, Cawleys has expanded in recent years to encompass the compliant collection, storage, dismantling and recycling of the lithium batteries. Cawleys can safely and successfully extract the precious elements found in the batteries enabling them to be recycled and re-used, reducing reliance on raw materials. As electric vehicles become the norm, the demand for lithium battery production will increase dramatically and sustainable production that includes the re-use of recycled precious metals and elements will be vital.
The new partnership will involve Cawleys collecting lithium batteries and all manner of hazardous and non-hazardous waste and recycling produced during the manufacturing process.
