Don’t dump your rubbish – Divert it
No more dodgy white van man, go purple
This has been the year of the clear-out, with many people taking the extra time at home to embark on house renovations and garden improvements – but who do you trust to get rid of your rubbish?
But all of these household upgrades have created a surge in waste, and the new, best way to get rid of it is to DIVERT it to a cheaper, more ethical and greener local disposal service.
Members of the team behind BusinessWaste.co.uk the 59th fastest growing company in the UK (Sunday Times fast track 100), Yorkshire-based experts in recycling and waste disposal for businesses of all kinds, have responded to this increasing demand for waste collection and set up Divert.co.uk, a fully-licensed man and van waste rubbish removal service for households and businesses.
Divert company spokesman Mark Hall explains: “There’s huge demand for a competitive, friendly and eco-conscious local waste disposal service in the Yorkshire area that can quickly collect anything, so we’ve launched Divert.co.uk – the reliable way to get rid of your rubbish that won’t cost the earth.
“If you’re looking for a waste service that will collect anything, choose the purple van.”
Ten jobs created for local people
Emerging from the same stable as BusinessWaste.co.uk – one of the UK’s 100 fastest growing companies according to The Sunday Times – Divert.co.uk is a person-with-van waste removal service that’s cheaper, more reliable, with the guarantee that we’ll shift your waste legally and process it with the environment in mind.
Booking a collection is quick and easy, everything is done online, generating instant prices to make customer interaction effortless.
Hall: “We’re committed to providing a friendly service which is convenient and great value for money, all while getting the job done properly.
“Our competitive prices cover everything including labour, so you won’t get stung by any nasty hidden charges.”
Co-founder and managing director Adam Bailey who says Divert will create 10 new jobs within the coming months, and will initially focus operations around the York, Leeds, Bradford, and Harrogate areas.
Bailey: “We’re starting with one van and are aiming to expand to 3-6 in the first year based on the current climate, which will create more jobs in the local area.”
But Divert.co.uk isn’t just focused on boosting the local economy, they want to tackle the rise in fly-tipping across the UK often caused by unlicensed waste carriers.
The Countryside Alliance reported a 300% rise in fly-tipping in some areas of the UK during the first UK lockdown*, so it’s worth taking the time to hire a company like Divert.co.uk that is fully-licensed to legally dispose of your waste.
Hall: “Why take the risk of finding out that the cheap man-with-a-van you paid to get rid of your rubbish has dumped it in a hedge when the council comes round with a fine you’ve got to pay?
“You might as well spend your money wisely and avoid the risk of prosecution, not to mention damage to the local environment.”
The purple van with a green plan
There has been a lot of emphasis on cutting down waste products to reduce the impact of global warming, which is why it is important to Divert.co.uk to be as environmentally friendly as possible.
“We are the waste company that hates waste, which is why we don’t take anything to landfill,” says managing director Adam Bailey. “Instead we make sure that everything is either taken to local charities or recycled.”
Landfills in the UK are often the first port of call for anyone having a declutter, but a huge number of recyclable and reusable items end up discarded, including sofas, duvets and mattresses which take up more than 26.2 million cubic metres of England’s landfill space annually.**
As part of the reduce, reuse and recycling initiative, Divert actively work with local charities to donate items that can be reused, and are always on the lookout for new charity partners.
Company spokesman Mark Hall says, “We want to encourage sustainability in the Yorkshire area, so working with charities to give items a new lease of life is a perfect way to engage with the local community.”
As well as reducing waste, Divert.co.uk aim to limit the amount of waste they generate, with an expert team using the latest technology to put together a waste collection schedule which maps out the most fuel-efficient route every day.
And for every collection Divert pick up, they will plant one tree.
Hall: “We’re making a promise to help regreen Britain, and planting trees is a great way to offset our CO2 emissions.”
