“We have used Elite Recycling Solutions for a number of years now and have found them to always be extremely helpful, always willing to go the extra mile and they ensure their pricing is competitive. The Elite team are always available and will investigate comprehensively before putting forward solutions to the issues we have raised.

We use Elite across our group (two sites) and although use different waste suppliers the invoicing and payment is carried out through Elite which makes the managing of waste management so much easier.”

They are very proactive on disposal of specific waste streams, as to taking samples and trying to find the best way to dispose of it… not only bin it!

Their service and communication are excellent, very quick and responsive to our specific needs. They also offer competitive rates.”

SafeContractor Renewal – Top Safety Accreditation for Elite Recycling Solutions Ltd

Elite Recycling Solutions Ltd has been awarded accreditation from Alcumus SafeContractor for achieving excellence in health and safety in the workplace.

Alcumus SafeContractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises extremely rigorous standards in health and safety management amongst contractors. It is used by thousands of organisations in the UK including SMEs and FTSE 100 companies.

The Company’s initial application for SafeContractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business. SafeContractor accreditation will enhance the company’s ability to win new contracts.

Gemma Archibald, Director of Alcumus SafeContractor said: “Major organisations simply cannot afford to run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they have sound health and safety policies in place.”

“More Companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that Elite Recycling Solutions Ltd has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector. SafeContractor plays a vital role in supporting our clients in meeting their compliance needs, whilst working with their contractors as they progress through the accreditation process.”

Chris Smits, Managing Director of Elite Recycling Solutions said: “We understand the importance of our continued commitment to Health and Safety management. Alcumus SafeContractor allows us to prove to our Clients the high standards that we maintain and shows how seriously we take this.”
