250th milestone for Changing Places campaign

A new Changing Places toilet at Marwell Wildlife in Hampshire has marked the 250th location – and the first zoological park - to install a facility in the United Kingdom. Changing Places toilets have catered for people with profound and multiple learning disabilities and complex health needs, since the Changing Places Consortium launched in 2006.

Changing Places toilets should be provided in addition to standard disabled toilets to meet the needs of the estimated 250,000 people in the UK whose toileting needs are not currently being met. A Changing Places toilet is larger than a standard disabled toilet with enough

room for at least two carers and comes equipped with a centrally placed toilet, an adjustable changing bench and ceiling hoist.

The Changing Places consortium has been successful in securing Changing Places toilets to be included in venues for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The consortium will continue to lobby for the facilities to be installed in all large public places and the government has announced that they will formally consider including Changing Places toilets in the new building regulations due for amendment in 2013.

Innovation in Food Waste Recycling IMC, one of Europe’s leading innovators in food waste management and recycling, is celebrating the honour of scooping two prestigious Rushlight Awards in recognition of its pioneering Compod recycling unit; one of the safest, most cost effective and most eco-friendly methods of managing the 4 million plus tonnes of commercial food waste disposed of in the UK every year.

IMC wins two ‘Green Oscars’ for

The Rushlight Awards – often referred to as the ‘Green Oscars’ - celebrate the technology and innovation achievements of UK organisations in providing new and innovative solutions to address global warming and climate change and represent the pinnacle of industry recognition. This year’s submissions were arguably the strongest in its 20-year history but despite the strong competition IMC not only scooped the Organic Waste Award but also beat off four other Award Winners to take the overall Waste Innovation Award.

Collecting the Award, Dennis Moore, Business Development Manager at IMC, commented: "It is absolutely wonderful to have our food

waste recycling solution acknowledged in this way by such a distinguished panel of leading experts. We are looking forward to assisting commercial catering establishments, from hotels and restaurants to hospitals and universities, to address the increasingly difficult, safe disposal of food waste and its diversion from landfill."

Major account win for Jangro

Jangro has won a major new account, Ocean Contract Cleaning London, through its Central London Member, Janitorial Express.

This account, previously handled by a major national distributor, was won in competitive tender.

Ocean, famous for its ‘best price – maximum service’ philosophy, applied its ‘value for money’ concept when appointing a new janitorial supplies company. However, this was not the only aspect of the Jangro bid that made it so attractive.

Lloyd Andres, Managing Director of Ocean Contract Cleaning London, said: “We gained our reputation and reached £20m turnover by paying great attention to cost in use and value for money, whilst considering sustainability and our carbon footprint. Jangro operates on the same principles so the fit is perfect. It has buying power equal to any national multiple and this is delivered locally with a personal service, with owner managers in every branch. Jangro has helped to maintain delivery of our motto – ‘get it right first time, every time.’

Lloyd continued: “Jangro’s support package - The Jangro Solution - is unparalleled in the market place. With COSHH Risk Assessments on all the Jangro chemicals, product usage guides in a pictogram form showing how to correctly use each product as well as a plethora of Health & Safety support material.”
