Skills & Works Solutions

We spoke with Eddie Copeland at Skills & Works Solutions to see what he thought about JWS and the service that we have provided over the years.  Here is what he had to say:

I have been with the company for nearly 9 years and JWS were the SkillCentre’s choice of waste management company.  We are the largest training provider in the North West and run a variety of training with 13 different courses from construction trades, engineering to automotive.

Sector: Commercial & Industrial

Services: Skip & Container HireTrade Collections

Why They Chose JWS

As a training provider, the practical aspects produce various waste streams from each of the sectors and it is important to us that where we cannot reuse, we are able to recycle and this is where JWS come in.

JWS have a recycling permit and separate the waste on their site;  we currently are achieving through JWS a 97% diversion rate from landfill.

Previous Issues / Challenges

Due to the variety of waste streams we produced, we were able to utilise JWS’s variety of solutions,  for example when we built a canteen we had a large volume of canteen waste which JWS supplied 3 x 1100 litre waste bins along with a weekly collection and exchange.

Key Benefits

JWS are very competitive on price  (other competitors have quoted but cannot beat JWS on price)  and also very responsive with requests for skip exchanges or additional skips.

They segregate our recyclable waste on their site which saves us having to have different skips on our site  (parking is a problem for us due to the volume of learners and staff.)

It’s also a benefit that the Waste Transfer Notes are sent quickly electronically.

Favourite Aspect

JWS have a great customer service ethic and this shows through the helpfulness of call staff when we need a skip exchanging or additional skips for particular projects we have on site and where we require additional waste stream vestibules such as light tube box for dead fluorescent tubes,  or metal skips etc.

In addition,  their drivers are always careful and helpful when delivering and exchanging skips on site.

“I would recommend JWS as a supplier of choice due to their competitive prices, excellent customer service, flexibility in meeting our requirements and first class service in recycling our waste streams, saving us time and money.
“We have built up a high level of trust and loyalty second to none with JWS and I would recommend them to anyone wishing to use their services.”
