From Waste to Wonderful Blooms

At Building Futures East we pride ourselves on always looking to recycle and reuse all types of waste material. Recently it was noticed that a delivery of machinery arrived at a neighbourhood factory. The equipment was encased in 1.5m x 1m wooden containers. These boxes were in the process of being broken up and put into skips to go to landfill.

However, following intervention from our Environment Maintenance Manager Dave Bradley, they were saved and are currently being made into floral containers and raised vegetable beds. These will be used in the community by local schools and neighbourhood groups to enhance and create fabulous floral displays in the East End of the city.
