Ongoing support for “The Lullaby Trust”

The Pype Hayes Golf Club Birmingham has honoured its pledge to raise even more money for the sudden infant death charity “The Lullaby Trust”.

Following the success of the Kai Memorial Golf Tournament organised by the club back in October 13 organiser Billy Noonan pledged to hold the event annually, which is now scheduled for July.

The club thought it would be a good idea to hold an impromptu competition as an extra boost for the charity, before the main tournament.
Haz Environmental Operations Manager Paul Sullivan was one of 53 players who took part in the hastily set up charity golf competition on May 17th 2014. Each player generously contributed a fee to enter the competition, which raised a donation of £600.

Sullivan says “I would like to thank all the players for their support in entering the competition and considering it was set up so quickly the event turned out to be a great day.

“Paul and friend Billy Noonan continue to support the trust”

The weather was fantastic which obviously helps and of course the big success, is we were able to make the donation to the charity”
The main event “The Kai Memorial Golf Tournament” will be held at The Pype Hayes Golf Club Birmingham in July.

There will be plenty of trophies up for grabs followed by a disco and buffet in the evening.

Disposing of rubbish costs your business time and money and wastes natural resources.

By effectively managing waste you can:

• Save your business money
• Reduce energy consumption
• Enhance environmental performance
• Reduce operating costs
• Comply with your legal obligations
• Improve the image of your business

Managing waste costs money but poor waste management costs even more. While small changes to your waste management system may seem trivial, when they are added up the benefits are worth it. The costs you may be aware of that come with waste management are: skips, landfill charges and air pollution charges. But there are many other costs you may not have taken into consideration, such as: transportation of waste, wasted time, wasted energy, wasted water, and environmental fines.

There are many benefits of reducing, reusing and recycling your waste. For one, it will save you money. The cost of putting your waste in a landfill has dramatically increased, going to £64 per tonne in April 2012 and rising steadily by £8 every year since then. Reducing waste will save your overheads. Reusing waste will reduce the cost of purchases raw materials and recycling waste may reduce disposal costs over time. Another benefit of reducing, reusing and recycling your waste is that it improves and enhances your business image. By reducing your environmental impact, it can impress and improve your reputation with customers and stakeholders alike. A third benefit in reducing, reusing and recycling your waste is that it makes sure you are meeting legal obligation. As a business owner you are responsible for managing the waste of your business in a responsible manner. The main piece of legislation relating to waste is referred to as your “Duty of Care”. Your actions may also improve the impact your business has on the environment and may also improve your workplace.

Before you can put a plan in place to reduce, reuse and recycle your waste, you need to discover and check what type of waste your business is producing. Perhaps your an office who is producing reams upon reams of paper waste. Or perhaps your a chemical business and your producing hazardous waste. Waste management west Midlands doesn’t exclude one type of waste production. You should perform a waste audit to discover what type of waste your business produces. A waste audit should find out how and where waste is produced, find out if any waste is hazardous, find the quantity and type of waste, and find the current disposal cost – this may come as a shock to you.
From your waste audit, you should be able to carefully see what kind of waste your business produces and what you can do about it, whether that’s reduce the waste, reuse the waste or recycle the waste before disposal.

Charity golf tournament success

A charity golf tournament has raised £2235 for sudden infant death charity, The Lullaby Trust, who provides specialist support for bereaved families.

Keen golfer, Haz Operations Manager Paul Sullivan took part in the event on October 19 at the Pype Hayes Golf Club, Birmingham.
The tournament was organised by Sullivan’s close friend Billy Noonan in memory of his five month-old baby grandson whom tragically died of cot death syndrome last year.

Haz Environmental was one of several local businesses who provided sponsorship.

Director Gary Perks said “We are delighted such a substantial amount was raised and commend everyone involved.”
Sullivan says “Over 60 golfer took part and considering the weather forecast was not too good, the attendance was amazing. I’m especially pleased for Billy, who has put so much time and effort into organising the event.”

“Billy presents the tournament winners trophy”

Billy’s efforts do not end here; he aims to raise even more money for charity next year with even bigger events.

Alstom & Haz receive the Green Apple Award 2013

Alstom Transport UK and their waste management partners Haz Environmental and B & M Waste Services have received a UK Green Apple Champion Award for “Environmental Best Practice” through waste management control.

It marks significant and well deserved recognition for Alstom in their on-going commitment to waste management and zero waste to landfill.

Alstom maintains tilting Virgin Pendolinos on the West Coast Main Line through a network of Traincare Centres and this involves managing all the waste produced.

To achieve this Alstom Transport recognised the importance of having support from their waste management contractors.

This is where the experience and extensive industry knowledge of Alstom’s lead buyer Paul Crowley was key in creating a successful partnership with Haz Environmental and B & M Waste Services.

Alstom Transport’s progressive and determined approach to waste control, recycling and waste to energy has ultimately produced an enviable status.

“Paul Crowley, Gary Perks, Sue Hall & Derek Smith receiving the award”

“Paul Crowley, Gary Perks, Sue Hall & Derek Smith receiving the award”
