Half a million!!

Half a million is the number of tip bookings we have processed since June this year!

Aberdeenshire, Denbighshire, The City of Edinburgh, Fife, Moray and Torbay Councils have between them, clocked up this impressive milestone in just over three months.

Our HWRC booking system provides a simple, cost effective and straightforward way to manage recycling centres. It enables local authorities to keep their staff and residents safe by ensuring the sites are never overwhelmed.

It provides the facility to monitor a site’s busy periods, which in turn allows the authority to deploy more resources on site precisely when it’s required.

It also delivers the functionality to shutdown sites at the touch of a button and when the need arises, all while keeping the residents informed.

It also benefits their residents to; we have all been to the tip and had to sit in a queue to get in, but with our booking system, queues are all but abolished. Now residents can pick a time that suits them and know that they will only be there for as long as they need to be, free to carry on with the rest of their day.

Here’s to the next 500,000!
