A PRESTIGIOUS accreditation has been awarded to trade waste collector Lili Waste for its high standards of health and safety.
The firm, which opened a £1m depot in Eastleigh last month, has been given accreditation by Alcumus SafeContractor, which recognises rigorous standards in health and safety management among contractors.
It is used by thousands of organisations in the UK, including SMEs and FTSE 100 companies.
The accreditation is another significant step in the success story of Lili Waste, which is expanding its operations into Hampshire after becoming a major trade waste collector in Yorkshire.
Last month Lili Waste marked its launch in the south with a Take The Waste Test campaign, urging businesses to think about how much of their waste could be ending up in landfill, while also finding out whether they are overpaying for their waste collection services.
The depot is now collecting trade waste from businesses across Portsmouth.
Managing director Matt Miles said: ‘We’re delighted to receive this accreditation, which is in line with our values and ethos of caring about the people who work for us, as well as ensuring health and safety issues are paramount while we work.’
