Pentagull welcomes another two customers!

Pentagull are thrilled to announce that South London Waste Partnership’s (SLWP) HWRC booking system and Hertfordshire County council’s commercial waste booking system have both gone live and are already receiving a high volume of bookings.

SLWP’s HWRC booking system allows residents within the boroughs of Kingston, Merton and Sutton to book time slots to visit their local recycling centre to dispose of their household waste. The main benefit of adopting the booking system is managing demand at the sites, as prior to the booking system going live, queues and congestion were a regular occurrence. The booking system allows residents to choose a time slot of their convenience and once a time slot has reached its capacity, it no longer appears as an option.

Hertfordshire County council contacted us regarding a commercial waste booking system allowing local companies in the Hertfordshire area to dispose of their business waste. The commercial waste booking form includes a handy online calculator which gives the customer an estimation of the likely cost for the waste that they are disposing. The council also decided to benefit from our popular blocklist functionality, which restricts disruptive individuals from making bookings.

If you would like to speak to us about one of the systems mentioned above or would like to enquire about another system, please contact us at hello@pentagull.co.uk.

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.
