We’re ISO certified!

After many months of hard work we’re proud to announce that in September 2013 we secured our ISO 14001:2004 certification.

ISO 14001:2004 is a global standard that defines criteria for an environmental management system. It sets out an effective, standardised method for companies to measure and improve their impact on the environment.

In order to achieve this certification our systems and procedures have been rigorously audited by independent assessors to ensure that they conform to the relevant ISO standards. This certification demonstrates to our customers and staff that we’re a progressive company who take our environmental responsibilities extremely seriously and have the robust management systems to fulfil those responsibilities.

A year of growth

2013 has been a year of growth for What a Load of Rubbish. We’ve started working with many new customers, which has enabled us to employ several new members of staff and expand our fleet of vehicles.

Following their attendance at the big trade shows this year, our directors, Rob and Saul, had some productive meetings, as a result of which we’ve started working with some of the biggest waste management companies in the UK.

These relationships have come about through focusing on what we know and do best: managing bulky waste in the often challenging environment of central London. Here it’s often impossible to site a skip or even park a vehicle close to the waste to be cleared, so a wait-and-load service is the only viable option. Because we’ve been dealing with this kind of work for so many years we understand how to manage such loads quickly, efficiently, cost-effectively and, of course, with due responsibility to the environment and in compliance with all relevant legislation.

This expertise allows us to assist other waste management companies by dealing with those awkward bulky waste loads on their behalf, thereby enabling them to manage their own waste streams more cost-effectively. The success of the working relationships we’ve already established is leading to greater expansion in our provision of this specialized service to other businesses.

What a Load of Rubbish in the media

We’ve had a flurry of interest in our company from the media this year. In May our directors Saul and Rob were invited to appear on Jo Good’s BBC London radio programme, discussing various aspects of rubbish in London. You can listen again to that interview here on our Soundcloud page.

We were also approached by a couple of TV production companies, one of which led to our participation in a new factual entertainment series produced for Fox TV UK called “Man Up”. The programme hasn’t been broadcast yet but we’ll be sure to let you know when it is!

And last but not least, we were also approached by talented film-maker, Kyle Stevenson, who created a brilliant promotional video for us which we’re unveiling right here to celebrate another successful year in business for What a Load of Rubbish and in particular to mark our achievement of ISO certification.

Our website, social media, and merchandise

We’ve completely redesigned our website this year to make it more useful: it’s now easier to navigate and full of information about managing your waste and how we can help you. We’ve also got a regularly updated blog, reporting the latest news from our company as well as developments in the industry as a whole, and there’s some fun stuff on there too, like our ongoing series highlighting our favourite lunch spots in London.

Coming up in 2014 we’ll be launching a range of merchandise which will be available exclusively via our website.
