Before the David Lloyd Leisure Club in Sudbury Hill, North West London, discovered Waste King, it used a number of waste collection companies to collect and dispose of the wide range of waste materials. Now it uses Waste King, the specialist collections, clearance and recycling company, for all its specialist waste removal.

David Tate, the operations manager at David Lloyd Sudbury Hill, explained: “The Club and its surrounding sports fields cover 16 acres and attract a large number of users on a daily basis – so it’s inevitable that it will generate waste, from litter to hazardous waste in the form of spent light bulbs. In addition, occupying such a large site, we tend to be the victims of fly tipping.”

“Not only does Waste King send along a two man team whenever we ask but they deal with all of the various forms of waste,” he added. “This means we only need to deal with one company for all our waste needs – and, compared with the previous situation, that saves a great deal of hassle.”

“Moreover, Waste King ensures that we meet all our obligations as far as the safe disposal of the waste is concerned – for example, in the proper disposal and recycling of fluorescent light bulbs, since these contain mercury and, so, are hazardous.”

Glenn Currie, the managing director of Waste King, which provides a Mercury Recycling Service, commented: “The mercury from just one fluorescent tube is enough to pollute 30,000 litres of water beyond the UK’s safe drinking level so, ideally, fluorescent tubes should be recycled or, if this isn’t possible, taken to specific landfill sites which can cater for mercury bearing wastes. Apart from the environmentally-friendly aspect to recycling fluorescent tubes and lamps, it’s also vital to do so for the health and safety of all those who’re involved in disposing of spent bulbs. For example, someone who attempts to dispose of a fluorescent tube in a skip not only is condemning the whole skip’s contents to be hazardous waste – which has costly consequences for its safe disposal – but is also exposed to the potential dangers of broken glass and the inhalation of small amounts of the toxic materials that are released as dust and vapour.”

“Using Waste King takes the organisation of waste collection away from us, giving us peace of mind and the ability to concentrate on running the Club,” said David Tate. “It simplifies the whole waste disposal process – and ensures that this process keeps within the law.”

“Waste King is particularly easy to deal with – and helps us a great deal, especially when it comes to disposing of hazardous waste,” he added.
