We were delighted to be shortlisted as finalists and receive Highly Commended in the Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire Apprenticeship Awards, for SME Employer of the Year. 

The SME Employer of the Year Award is for businesses of under 249 employees that show an ongoing commitment to providing opportunities to apprentices within the business. 

Apprentices are a big part of our team here at Flame UK and this award celebrates all they bring to our business, so we were delighted to be Highly Commended and to have a lovely night out with the team!

Focus on paint recycling


How to recycle your paint – from sprays to gloss! 

You might have just repainted the office or had a revamp of the kitchen, leaving you with used or nearly empty paint cans and no idea on how to properly dispose of them. Paint can be tricky to dispose of and, if not done carefully, could have damaging effects on you or the environment.

Why should you dispose of paint properly?

Paint is classed as hazardous waste, and even small amounts left over from your DIY project could have environmental consequences. 

What should you do with leftover paint? 

Don’t pour it down the sink! Leftover paint needs to be stored correctly to keep it useable.  Empty cans can be recycled, and paint can be recycled at certain places.  Read our blog to find out more!
