We value our customers as we understand that they are the backbone to our business, enabling us to grow from our humble beginnings in 1998 to now, one of the UK’s largest water cooler suppliers.
Just as important to us, and an integral part of our business ethos since we began, is our commitment to helping those in need. In this manner AquAid has, to date, donated over £14 million to charity and have helped more than 6 million people.
Another organisation (and valued customer) committed to creating a sustainable environment and better future for all is LKM Recycling.
We recently invited them to take part in a charity initiative: this involved the building of a water well (known as an Elephant Pump) which enables a community in Africa direct access to safe drinking water. This well building program is instituted by an AquAid founded charity – the Africa Trust – which since its inception in 2010, has built more than 8,000 such wells throughout sub-Saharan Africa, providing potable water to over 2 million people.
We were delighted when they agreed to take part in the well building and even more pleased to be able to present them with a photo of their built and named well in June of 2018. We found out a little more about LKM Recycling during the well building period:
“The mission of LKM Recycling is dedication to the highest quality of customer service delivered with a sense of warmth, friendliness, individual pride & company spirit.”
They offer total waste management services across a wide range of sectors including:
- Metal recycling
- Plastic recycling
- Wood recycling
- Paper recycling
- Cardboard recycling
- Scrap Vehicle Recycling
- Skip Hire Services
- Confidential Shredding services
Marketing Manager at LKM Recycling, Simon Baxter, had this to say, “We operate a zero to Landfill policy which means we divert as much waste possible away from landfill and towards recycling.
We have recently opened a waste transfer station in Sittingbourne to handle multiple waste streams to support our growing domestic skip hire business.
We have also recently opened a new confidential shredding facility that can shred and recycle confidential documents from our customers. This means less paper waste ending up in landfill and helps protect businesses from the GDPR laws.”
Here at AquAid, we’d just like to thank all at LKM Recycling for their continued custom, their support with getting an Elephant Pump built as well as their raising awareness about what their support produced.
