By its very nature the removal and disposal of an old kitchen creates waste of many different types. Typically every old kitchen will have wood, electrical, paper, glass and even batteries that need to be removed and, whilst this can’t be avoided, we at Nicholas Hythe understand the concern it can cause. That’s why we work only with contractors with sound environmental principles and policies and a positive attitude towards waste management, thereby minimising the amount sent to landfill.
As you’d expect, our contractors have to comply with all existing legislation and regulations but we also want them to comply with the spirit of these too by actively sorting your old kitchen to determine what may be reused or recycled. We also ask that they’re able to confirm a minimum 80% of the total waste they collect is reused or recycled so that you can be assured as much as possible of your old kitchen will be reused or turned into something new too.
Although we won’t change the world on our own, we at Nicholas Hythe are proud of this policy and the link with local providers of goods and services which means that we’re reducing the environmental impact of our business, employees and you, our customers, for much longer than the life of your kitchen.
