Apart from our normal services providing secure destruction for data on all types of different media, we also use our depot as a local recycler for a range of materials.
We have noticed that a lot of our customers have become quite disgruntled with the ever increasing costs of having their commercial waste removed from their premises, and often when you see what the big 1100 litres bins hold, it’s often cardboard, waste paper or plastics. Charges are based on bin hire, plus number of ‘bin-lifts’ and optimised in favour of the big waste management companies, even if half empty, the charge is still 100% each visit.
We have been working with a number of our local customers, who now separate out cardboard, paper and clear polyethylene packaging wastes and just drop them off to us at the depot where we will ensure they are 100% recycled, completely free of charge.
This only works for those businesses I feel that are within about 10-15 miles, and of course can store the materials until such time as they can drop them off to us, but it is becoming increasingly popular.
This isn’t an option for businesses that need collections very regularly from their own premises, but does benefit a lot of SME’s, who drop in when passing and can save hundreds of pounds a year on having a bin.
If any BHBPA members would like to explore whether we can help them, and to know how the drop off system works they need to drop me, or Mike Easton (Copied in) a line and we’ll see what we can do.
We have produced a simple leaflet that will be going out to businesses in that 10 miles radius over the coming weeks, which BHBPA members could download, if you are so inclined as to include this in any possible post in the newsletter
let me know if you need any further information and whether it would be of interest,

"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."
"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "
