Pickfords wins Waste Management Company of the Year Award

31 January 2017

Pickfords, the UK’s largest removals and storage company, has been awarded ‘Waste Management Company of the Year’ by Build magazine, for its environmentally friendly office furniture and IT reuse and recycling service.

The prestigious awards recognise the ‘hidden heroes’ within the corporate world, who keep businesses running smoothly and effectively, in recognition of their excellence and dedication to their profession.

Pickfords’ recycling service helps businesses meet their environmental goals, processing their old office furniture, IT and other materials to be recycled, reused or re-sold, ensuring that 0% of their waste is sent to landfill.

The service is delivered at the time of the clients’ office relocation or workplace change project to help minimise costs. Many clients choose to donate furniture for reuse to local charities.

Pickfords and its clients have supported the British Heart Foundation, Tenovus Cancer Care, Help for Heroes and many others.

Martin Budd, Head of Business Solutions at Pickfords, said: “We are delighted to have achieved this award. Our environmental solution is the result of five years’ hard work built around the needs of our clients.

"It is an honour to be recognised for a service that supports our clients by helping them minimise their impact on the environment.”

Rachel Devonport, awards co-ordinator at Build magazine, expressed her pride: “It has been a true privilege to showcase the sheer talent and hard work of every single one of my award winners. I would like to wish them every success going forward.”
