Being a local skip hire company, covering Bournemouth, Poole, Wareham, Swanage, Dorchester and surrounding areas, there is a lot of opportunity for us to make a difference to the local community. As “The Sustainable Future of Skip Hire”, protecting the environment and encouraging recycling is integral to what we do but supporting the people in our local environment is also highly important.
You might have seen one of our lovely blue skips at the annual Wareham Wednesdays bonfire night, held at Wareham Rugby Club. This meant that all of the waste from the event could be taken care of sustainably. We also provided wood for the bonfire lit at the event.
The Waste Group are proud to be sponsoring a barrel at the 30th Dorchester Beerex, a great way to raise money to support local charities. This years event will be held on Friday 2nd and Saturday 3rd February 2018 at the Dorchester Corn Exchange. The main charity benefiting from the proceeds of the Beer Festival is the Dorchester Social Stroke Club.
We are also supporting the 25th Wareham Beerex to be held on Friday 30th and Saturday 31st March 2018 in Wareham Masonic Hall. The main beneficiary of this event will be the Lexi May Trust; a Dorset based charity providing special days our for children with terminal illness or life limiting conditions.
As well as working for a sustainable future, our new years resolution is to increase our community involvement even further, whether this is through donation of time, funds or resources. Sarah Levett, Head of Marketing & Sustainability, is looking for ways to help us to increase the positive impact we have on the community; “All companies have a responsibility to do good and promote good, and increasing our community involvement is a very important part of this, that we are excited to increase over the coming months”.
