Cleaning uncovers Co-op cash machine skimming device


A skimming device was discovered on the Moffat Co-op cash machine when a member of staff


was cleaning it. Police are now seeking a man who was seen acting suspiciously near the ATM amongst other leads. Dumfries and Galloway Constabulary said that any suspicious activity near a cash machine should be reported to them immediately.


Hull & East Yorkshire NHs retains its trust with mITIE


MITIE, the strategic outsourcing company, has retained a major healthcare cleaning contract in England for a further five years.


The contract, with Hull & East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust, consists of two large acute hospitals and five smaller sites, with approximately 570 MITIE employees involved in a variety of hospital cleaning duties.


The new multi-million pound agreement will continue until 2016 with a possible two year extension after that.

Europe’s largest timber framed, straw bale clad building is home to the administrative offices of York City Council’s Neighbourhood Services.


Designed to show that buildings can be environmentally sustainable without compromising quality, the total lifetime CO₂ saving as compared with a more conventional brick and steel construction is an amazing 2,815.5 tonnes. No surprise then when the contract for the supply of hand towels and toilet tissue was drawn up an early stipulation was that all products had to be manufactured from recycled material.


Which was no problem for Connect because within their Leonardo range is a number of 100% recycled paper products. But there is more to sustainability than recycling, there


is the control of waste which leads to the very important cost in use efficiency figures.


Warren Smith, Operations Manager at the Council was convinced that the VersaTwin toilet tissue dispenser’s ability to eliminate stub roll waste and the roll towel dispenser’s efficient one sheet at time, flat to the user presentation, was a winning combination. All this and the delivery of the highest standards of hand drying hygiene too!


Warren and his team are currently working on a project seeking to evaluate the difference between the running costs of this remarkable building and that of a nearby similar sized building of conventional construction, also owned by the Council. Leonardo will be playing its part!
