As children return to school following the lockdown their waste will once again be increasing and so will J&B’s services.
Deaf Hill Primary School, situated in Trimdon Station, County Durham, teaches approximately 180 pupils from the ages of two to 11-years-old and has been serviced by us for the past nine years after winning a tender for its waste collections..
Providing a weekly collection to Deaf Hill we offer waste management services to manage their waste streams, including general waste and recycling.
Garry Short, who has been the caretaker at Deaf Hill Primary School for 15 years, said: “J&B offers a really efficient service, collections are effective and on time and any queries are quickly dealt with.
“The collections teams also leave our site tidy after they have visited, I would definitely recommend this service to others.”
The school has also used our skip service on occasions for any extra waste and with two general waste bins and one dry mixed recycling bin on site they result in saving costs on their waste management service.
Garry added: “The customer service team were excellent at helping us organise skips for the school. The service was quick and efficient, with the skips being here the next day exactly when they said and working well to accommodate the times that our site was open.”
The school is now back open at full capacity, operating differently but nevertheless teachers and pupils are glad to be back.
Of course, the students at Deaf Hill enjoy learning about the recycling process and helping the environment as part of their curriculum, and the bins get a little bit fuller from time to time whilst the next generation is learning how to recycle correctly.
Up to 75% of all the waste that other schools produce can end up in landfill if they dont recycle. Our aim at J&B Recycling is to help schools send zero waste to landfill, by adopting reduce, recycle and energy recovery instead.
Thank you Deaf Hill Primary School.
