Pickfords Business Solutions launches new environmental service

17 February 2011

A National reuse and recycling service to help minimize landfill and benefit local charities Pickfords Business Solutions opened a new operation to provide recycling and reuse services to help companies across the UK dispose of unwanted assets.

Nicki Brotherston, Head of Environmental Reuse


The service aims to help companies meet their environmental targets when faced with disposing of unwanted furniture and IT equipment and provides a cost effective alternative to landfill.

The service includes asset tagging, collection and delivery to a Pickfords storage facility and segregation for reuse locally or for the recycling of components. Items that can be reused will be placed locally with not- for-profit organisations, community groups or furniture resellers. Metal, wood and plastic will be recycled. The entire process will be tracked and certification provided to clients for proof of reuse and recycling.

This new division will be lead by Nicki Brotherston, the Head of Environmental Reuse. Nicki has a background in sales and operations, having worked for the Unipart Group of companies in the automotive and leisure industry, before moving to Pickfords in 2005.

Mark Herrington, Pickfords Business Solutions Director said “I am delighted to announce the opening of this operation and the service which we can now offer clients in-house. Strategically, it is an important addition to our portfolio of business services. Our aim is to offer maximum value by providing our clients with the opportunity to reduce their project costs by choosing more than one service from Pickfords Business Solutions”
