HAE EHA partners with waste specialist

The Hire Association Europe Event Hire Association (HAE EHA) has formed a partnership with UK-based waste management company GAP Group that will give HAE EHA members access to a range of value for money, practical waste management and recycling solutions.

HAE EHA said the partnership with GAP Group will provide its members with simplified invoicing for a wide range of waste management and recycling services, without the need to deal with multiple suppliers.

It added that the the solutions on offer have been specially designed to meet industry specific waste needs, offering the “most appropriate recycling methods which are not always easily accessible using conventional means.”

The association said, “Given the diversity of the hire and events industries, a very broad range of waste management and recycling solutions is needed, from food waste in the events sector to dealing with cable recycling, waste electrical equipment (WEEE) recycling, plastic and metal recycling, and F-gas removal and recycling solutions.”

In addition, it said the lack of access to or availability of specialist recycling services has been a source of frustration for hire and events firms, with GAP Group’s national coverage and services including the management of electrical waste, metals, plastics, residual waste, oils, tyres, chemicals, and batteries will help members to dispose of these substances in a hassle-free and ethical way.

Carl Bartlett, director certification services at HAE EHA, said, “Having researched the opportunities widely for some time, we were convinced that GAP Group could offer the specific services required by our members, based on its forward-thinking approach and expertise in specialist recycling solutions. As well as offering practical solutions, our partnership with GAP Group will also play a role in supporting members with their environmental compliance as well as providing valuable guidance and relevant documentation. Effectively, a complete service from one supplier.”

Nigel Tomlinson, commercial director (electrical waste) at GAP Group, added, “We’re really excited about this new alliance and are really looking forward to supporting the hire industry with all its waste requirements via HAE EHA. We received a multimillion-pound investment in 2021 supporting our ambitious plans to double in size within three years, so GAP Group now offers some of the world’s most advanced recycling technology. This means that customers can be assured that, no matter the substance, their waste will be dealt with in the most environmentally-friendly way.”
