B&M Waste Services was asked to assist in the collection and recycling of 8 Service Centre Flat Bed Trollies that had reached end of life having been in service for ten years at CrossCountry’s Birmingham Service Centre.
The trollies were collected by B&M Waste Clearances Division and taken to the B&M recycling facility in Bromborough where they were placed in their metal recycling container, ready for forwarding to Wirral Metals for smelting.
B&M provide scheduled console secure shredding services for CrossCountry, as well as adhoc bag collections for confidential waste and one off site clearances. Each load is documented with a Certificate of Destruction and a detailed report will be issued for CrossCountry’s records.
