If you are a business in Leeds then we would like to talk to you about waste management. You may not really consider that the rubbish thrown into the bins of your workplace are that important, but as a company which prides itself on providing state-of-the-art, affordable and environmentally-friendly waste management services, we want to let you know just how important that rubbish really is.

As a nation, we are throwing away less and less into general waste bins, thus reducing the amount of rubbish sent to landfill every year. The national average for waste sent to landfill dropped from around 90% to 50% between 2009 and 2015 and is set to drop to around 10% by 2020. That may seem like a dream target, but at 707 Resource Management we believe that zero waste to landfill is achievable and some companies are already managing it.

Leeds is a fantastic city with wonderful amenities, stunning natural areas and a rich history, so we want to be a part of the future of the city by helping to increase the levels of recycling and reusing of materials which may currently be ending up in general waste bins. The first step is a full waste audit, which we can carry out and involves the sorting and weighing of bins throughout your business. This enables us to identify where rubbish is being disposed of incorrectly and through these findings we can create a personalised waste management plan for you. From bins for all types of waste and recycling through to collection services across Leeds, 707 can offer the solution to any waste problems you may be having, whether you are an office, a restaurant, a sporting venue or a medical company.

Effective waste management is not just about the amount of rubbish sent to landfill – although the impact of that upon the environment is huge – being savvy about your bins and collections can have a very positive effect upon your finances too. Between 4 and 10% of a company’s gross income is estimated to be spent on waste management, so if we can help to reduce the amount that you are throwing away, then your collection costs will go down and therefore more money stays within your company – sounds like a good idea to us!


707 is working with local suppliers in Leeds to become even stronger in the area and we would love to work with you in order to make your waste management systems more affordable, more environmentally-friendly and more sustainable to help ensure your company is up there with us as a pioneer of excellence in the control and management of refuse.

We’re sure that you will find our services beneficial and when you work with 707, you have your own single point of contact for any queries as well as access to a state-of-the-art online tracking system. Whatever your industry, we can help so give us a call today and see what one of our expert team recommends for your company.
