Living in a city it’s hard to consider oneself as a particularly fine example of a waste recycler. However when I think about it, the work we are doing at ACQSYS is at least having its own impact on the amount of fresh metal and plastic being manufactured every year.

This reduction in waste happens because we track down and recover lost and misappropriated roll cages and plastic trays, belonging to our clients, thus saving them the cost of buying replacements.  Those replacements would be using valuable raw materials and their manufacture contributes to the carbon footprint.  Our clients are not only saving themselves valuable capital, they are contributing to the protection of our planet.

Our new rental business rollcagerental.co.uk is continuing in the same vein.  When you rent from us we recover cages that you lose and not only reduce your charge for losses, but also keep existing equipment in play, reducing the need to replace it.  In the last six months alone we have helped one of our clients avoid purchasing £750,000 worth of new equipment.

So, the questions are:
How do you measure your performance against environmental targets?
Have you ever considered why you are spending capital every year replacing missing equipment that could be recovered, or even rented?

When you set out to buy new transit equipment this year why not contact us first to see how we can not only save you money but also help you meet some of your softer business objectives?

You may be surprised to find we can even help you to reduce your carbon footprint too.
