The results are in….
We collected 405 items of waste.
This weekend team Orwak Easi UK Ltd completed a beach clean in support of the Marine Conservation Society and collected 405 items of waste.
Every year Orwak Easi plan to support a different charity and complete events throughout the year to raise money for them
Last year we raised over £2000 for Children with Cancer UK and plan on smashing that target for the Marine Conservation Society this year.
Our organised beach clean took place on Sunday 24th June on Mablethorpe Beach in Lincolnshire. Our 13 volunteers took 3 hours out of their weekend to pick up waste that would usually end up in the ocean.
Whilst the beach was actually pretty clean the surrounding public space was awash with waste which would potentially blow into the sea.
Four full bags of rubbish were collected in total.
That included 152 items of plastic alone. 111 pieces of paper or cardboard and 64 pieces of metal.
All material that could potentially be recycled.
We have taken the recyclable material back to our base in Willenhall, washed it and baled it. Ready to be fully recycled.
Our aim is to sell the baled waste we have collected (along with all the other waste we collect as a company) and donate the proceeds.

So why do we promote plastic free beaches?
Our charity this year is the Marine Conservation Society who are big campaigners in the fight against the plastic tide of waste. So, whilst raising money we are also raising awareness.
It makes sense.
We are also a leading supplier of waste handling equipment. Our job is to provide companies with a way of recycling more of their waste and stop it going to landfill, costing the earth and blowing around in the wind.
We offer companies are FREE, no obligation, waste audit to see if we can help.
