Protecting the health and safety of their workforce, donating to front line services and continuing to provide essential bin deliveries across the country are just a handful of measures Winsford based UKCM are proudly endeavouring to carry out as the waste industry begins to see light at the end of the tunnel.
As a family business with a team of loyal employees from neighbouring towns, some of whom have been with the business for more than ten years, protecting the health and safety of their workforce has been of the utmost importance.
Sales Director Richard Delooze said, “Ultimately our staff are our first priority so we’ve put extremely high health and safety measures in place, not only to protect them, but to make them feel cared for.
“Although we’ve scaled back, the business has continued to deliver essential jobs to councils and local authorities across the country, so our on-site team have been provided with lots of the correct PPE, with masks and gloves to be worn at all times.
“With the majority of directors and office staff following guidelines to work from home, we have ensured that daily site visits have been made to make sure our workforce don’t feel like they’re going it alone.
“We have received a number of enquiries from customers crying out for bins from NHS waste and ward recycling companies, so we’ve been helping to make sure they’ve got bins to see them through these challenging times.”
