Waste Management – Solutions for every size event

The team at Flame UK has been in the event waste management industry for over 15 years, providing assistance with event planning, logistics and waste management for every size event. Here’s how we do it:

Litter picking/clean up services

Our litter pickers are dedicated, hard workers who are all employed by the company. Whether it be in a field or a stadium, we provide our litter pickers with the correct tools and equipment to ensure the job is done properly, no matter the weather conditions.

Did you know some sites will impose fines if you leave the event untidy or with litter? By using Flame UK’s litter pickers, we’ll ensure your site is left just as it was before your event.

Waste disposal and storage

We can offer a wide variety of wheelie binsskips and roll on off containers which are available for rental or to purchase. With years of experience in the waste management industry, we put our skills to excellent use, helping you to budget, plan and understand the options available for your event.

Outdoor temporary lighting and power

Flame UK offers a broad range of temporary and portable lighting solutions. Suitable for any works environment or event, whether indoor or outdoor, we have a selection of lights and power solutions for hire that’ll suit your needs.

Temporary fencing and barrier hire

Events often use temporary fencing for hire as a short term and cost-effective perimeter for their venue, we have a range of barrier solutions to ensure your event is secure.

Water storage

We offer a range of services including water tankers, pallets of bottled water and deployment of bowsers and static tanks to any location, ensuring that your event flows as smoothly as possible.

Portable toilets and washrooms

Our portable toilets and washrooms are fully maintained and serviced by us; we’ll empty and service all units on a schedule to fit the requirements of your event.

Our bespoke solutions mean that we can provide a service tailored to your event. We will provide a solution that meets your environmental and operational objectives within a single communication stream, combining the strengths of several individual suppliers under one umbrella.

   

Flame UK Plastic Bottle Top winner annouced

Plastic Bottle Top Collection – Winners Announced

If you follow us on social media, then you may have seen us mention Dove Cottage Day Hospice.

But, who are Dove Cottage Day Hospice?

Dove Cottage Day Hospice is an independent organisation who offer palliative daycare to people living with life-limiting illnesses. With the hospice based in the Vale of Belvoir, they also have a tea room on the Grantham Canal and charity shops in Stathern, Bottesford, Cotgrave and Melton Mowbray.

How has Flame UK helped Dove Cottage?

One of our team members, Helen, spotted the “Save your plastic bottle tops” campaign in the Bottesford charity shop window.  As we are a waste company, we thought it would be a great campaign for us to get involved in because the bottle tops can be recycled in exchange for money, which then goes towards the hospice. We began to collect bottle tops ourselves, and over the last 3 months we got local schools, businesses, family and friends involved.

What was the response?

The response to the campaign was brilliant; everyone who took part did amazingly well. This pile here isn’t even half of the bottle tops everyone collected!

De Montfort Hall

Our litter pickers have recently worked at De Montfort Hall in Leicester.

Spread over two weekends, Saturday 17th – Sunday 18th August and Friday 23rd – Monday 26th August, our team of dedicated individuals worked a total of 52.5 hours. They ensured the area was tidy and safe for the guests who attended the Gigs In The Gardens event. Both before, during and after each day.

 

 

 

 

 

The event had something for everyone, from Kaiser Chiefs, to Groove Armada, to Years & Years, the Bardi Symphony Orchestra and many more. Some of our team members even managed to get a few selfies with the acts while there!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It doesn’t matter what kind of event or function you are hosting, we have got your litter pickers sorted. Here at Flame UK, we don’t use agency workers; the company employs all of our litter pickers.

Watch this space for more updates on what exciting events our litter pickers will be attending.

Did you go to the Gigs In The Gardens event? We’d love to see your photos. Make sure you give us a follow and tag us in your pictures from the event.
