Flame UKs highlights of 2019

It’s hard to believe that 2019 is almost over already! As we come up to the last few weeks of the year, we want to share with you some highlights of 2019 for Flame UK.

Meet our people

Flame UK has had a brilliant 2019; it’s been a year of growth both internally and externally. We had a lot of new starters to help manage the workload from our growing number of customers. To help you get to know us, we’ve all put together some fun individual blogs, check them out here.

We’d also like to mention that the image we have used at the top of this blog was actually hand-drawn by Henry, our Operations Officer. He really does have an amazing talent, so be sure to check out his blog!

Our fundraising activities

Dove Cottage – At the beginning of August, we got in touch with Dove Cottage Day Hospice who offer palliative daycare to people living with life-limiting illnesses. We got involved with their plastic bottle top campaign to help raise money for them, as well as taking part in the Santa Fun Run. Check out our blog to see how we did.

Wear It Pink – Here at Flame UK we like to do our bit in raising money for charity, so we decided to have a pink theme day to raise money for Breast Cancer Now on their Wear It Pink event.

Flame UKs 2020 chosen charity announced

Our chosen charity who we will be supporting throughout next year is Headway Nottingham, who is a local charity providing support, guidance and longer-term rehabilitation for people adapting to life after brain injury. Make sure you keep an eye on our social media and sign up to our mailing list to find out how we will be supporting Rhiana Lakin and the team at Headway Nottingham.

Our Team Building Exercises

We’re big fans of team building too, from meals out together to some friendly Go-Karting! We have had lots of fun outside of the work environment throughout 2019, and we already have our first team-building exercise planned for 2020. Make sure you’re following us on social media to see how we do.

How Flame UK has grown this year

SmartTrash – As you probably know by now we pride ourselves in delivering cutting edge solutions to energy and environmental challenges to each and every one of our clients, SmartTrash is an innovative solution that Flame UK have helped pioneer for the UK market. Tried and tested around the world now available here through Flame UK, reducing waste collections, saving money and cutting carbon SmartTrash is going to make a huge difference to UK businesses. We are currently looking for some test sites which will benefit from SmartTrash free of charge.

Pallet Collections – Recycling unwanted pallets has been one of our focuses over the past quarter, where we launched a localised pallet collection round. Centred in Nottingham our man and van have been collecting used and unwanted pallets, collecting and recycling pallets that others either can’t or won’t. Everything from small quantities, odd shapes and even damaged pallets we can collect without cost and put the pallets whole or in part back into the packaging chain in the most sustainable and environmentally efficient way possible.

On-Demand Waste Collections – As of November of 2019, we’re able to offer waste collections from as quick as 2 hours from call out. We can take the headache out of junk clearances. Providing the labour, recycling and disposal we literally take care of everything, all you need to do is call, and we take care of the rest, leaving your site clean and tidy and waste-free!

Finally, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from everyone here at Flame UK!
