Defra consultation

Recently Defra has put out a consultation regarding booking systems for HWRC’s and preventing LA’s from charging for DIY waste.  The LGA has just responded to the consultation and their response can be found here https://www.local.gov.uk/parliament/briefings-and-responses/lga-response-defra-call-evidence-booking-systems-household-waste. We welcome the findings laid out by the LGA and we are pleased to see that concerns regarding fly tipping have been investigated with the result being that no direct links were found.

Here at Pentagull we are keeping an eye on how this progresses as we supply a large number of authorities with booking systems and each and everyone is a bespoke system designed to meet those individual authority's needs. We will continue to work with our existing and new customers to make sure that each system works for them and meets all requirements laid out.

Providing our support for Ukraine

We are horrified by what’s going on in Ukraine, as I'm sure you are. Particularly cutting are the scenes showing young children and families fleeing a war zone or worse. At least 3 million people have fled their homes to escape conflict in Ukraine. Leaving behind jobs, belongings and loved ones, they now face an uncertain future. This morning we made a donation to the Disasters Emergency Committee.
