Build Facilities Management Awards 2016

Build 2016 Facilities Management Awards 46 ver the last five years Pickfords Business Solutions has created new services which have been built around the needs of its clients. The growing tide of environmental awareness and legislation unearthed a real need for companies to manage waste legally and responsibly. Change in the workplace typically creates unwanted furniture and IT equipment, as companies change their space, redesign their ways of work and optimise their environment. Commercial organisations need to ensure they use an authorised waste carrier with the correct permits and licences. Legislation also demands that businesses apply the waste management hierarchy and keep records as evidence of environmentally friendly disposal. Pickfords is an authorised waste carrier and has created a waste manage- ment solution which can be deployed at the time of an office relocation or internal workplace change. Pickfords’ recycling and reuse service helps its clients follow the waste hierarchy, as unwanted furniture or IT assets can be collected and taken to one of Pickfords’ environmental hubs. The items are tagged through the process and can be recycled into their component parts - metal, wood and organic materials. Alternatively, an item of furniture can be placed with a network of charities or business start-ups, or resold to extend its life. All items are tracked through the process and clients are presented with a certificate to evidence their environmental credentials. The real benefit of this service is that it can be integrated into a move plan, at the time of an office relocation. Choosing more than one service from Pickfords can reduce the cost of a change project. There are many benefits to the service offered by Pickfords. Clients can actually gain value from their unwanted assets if the furniture has value and can be sold through Pickfords’ 2nd hand furniture dealer network. Profits can be shared or donated to a charity of the client’s choice; the most popular option for Pickfords’ clients is reuse, as unwanted IT equipment and furniture and can be placed with Pickfords’ network of charities which includes the British Hearth Foundation, Tenovus Cancer Care and Help for Heroes. Pickfords Business Solutions is delighted to be awarded the Facilities Management Award for Best Waste Company UK.
