Fareham-based waste management firm Hippowaste is celebrating another significant business milestone this month as the 300,000th collection was booked in almost a year to the day after the 200,000th collection in 2007.
Hippowaste recycles an average of over 80per cent of waste collected including the bags themselves, which are broken down and recycled into re-useable items such as traffic cones.
The success comes as the company prepares to celebrate the 2nd anniversary of the opening of its dedicated recycling centre in Hampshire.
James Bennett, chief executive says : “It’s fantastic news to have yet another great achievement under our belts. This shows how our product has become part of people’s everyday solutions to meet their waste disposal and recycling needs.
“Over the last two years our recycling centre has become a welcome addition to the waste management solutions that we can provide, especially amongst local tradesmen. The centre offers trade a legal alternative to the tip at a time when many Civic Amenity sites are clamping down on trade waste. We are very much looking forward to celebrating two years of successful recycling with our customers at the centre in July.”
The Hippowaste innovation is an exceptionally strong polypropylene bag which can hold up to 1.5 tonnes of waste and is available from leading DIY retailers such as B&Q, Homebase, Wickes and online from Tesco Direct.
Once full Hippowaste collects, transports and disposes of the bag and its contents in a responsible way.
