We actively encourage recycling of our packaging and storage materials
We request that after your removal or on completion of your storage period you cut the tape on your boxes and fold them flat ready for collection. Please ensure that they are kept dry otherwise we cannot reuse them or recycle them. The blankets protecting your storage items will be washed and re used. If you are moving out of our area we may suggest that you offer your boxes to friends or family that may be moving or call a local Removal company that may be able recycle them. If you find that you have to dispose of them please do so in a responsible manner.
Our packaging and material supplies have been selected not only to offer quality and value and provide maximum protection for your possessions in transit or storage, but also in consideration to the environment. All our products are made from recycled materials or are recyclable themselves.
Company Policy dictates that we recycle;
- Paper and cardboard
- Office Furniture – to charity
- Bubble wrap
- Mobile phones
We have a no under bin desk policy to encourage our staff to recycle as effectively as possible within the company.
Saving you Money and Saving the Environment - making a green commercial investment
From January 2008 a low emission zone or LEZ will be implemented by councils within the M25 area, including London. Any heavy vehicles entering this zone, that do not meet strict new emission levels, will have to pay £200 a day charge.
This green pollution and carbon initiative is likely to spread and roll out to cities and metropolitan areas across the UK. So, from January, if you live in London or within the M25 orbital, most removal companies will be passing on an extra £200 charge onto your removal costs.
By moving with Jamie Briggs Removals and Storage you will not have to contribute to this charge. As part of our commitment to our London clients and green initiatives we are investing in the fitting of sophisticated emission reduction equipment to some of our fleet of vehicles. These vehicles will meet and exceed strict new emission levels for heavy vehicles working within the M25 up to and beyond 2012. We can arrange with local councils for the suspension of parking bays or meters for the removal vehicle. Please note that the various boroughs in London have different time periods and pricing structures for parking, some require a 14 days notice period.
If you have not used us before contact us today. You can be reassured of our competitive prices, high level of service and care*, and green credentials.
