Encouraged by our rainforest work, we wanted to do more here at Melbec HQ, so the first thing we did was to switch to 100% renewable energy, which comes from the turbines that are situated on the windy hills of Lancashire, just a few miles from our building.
Also, since our collection drivers travel hundreds of miles every week, we wanted to help reduce the amount of carbon this emitted as well, so we have switched all our collection vehicles to 100% electric, all powered by Melbec renewable energy!
In addition to supporting the rainforest we also have a lot of involvement in animal charities. For example, one year we sponsored an endangered animal for all our customers. We also regularly give to our local animal rescue centre.
