2016 was an incredibly exciting year for us here at Equinox Recycling, so we’re kicking off 2017 by looking look back on 2016 and reflecting on the progress our business has made over the last year.

Read on to find out about some of our successes and achievements in the past 12 months.

Equinox Recycling was featured in an issue of “Weighty Matters”, the Vehicle Weighing Solutions newsletter, as part of the launch for their VWS PurGo software. As a company, we having been using PurGo to streamline our operations since late 2015 and so were more than happy to share our views and experience of the IT system.


We were appointed as the waste management provider for Grapes Direct Ltd, supplying compactor bins and wheeled bins for dry mixed recyclables and general waste.

Equinox supported the Big Day Out Festival at Mote Park in Maidstone by providing 100 general waste wheeled bins to cover the 2-day event. But it turned out that our bins were needed for far more than just the collection of waste…they were utilised as make-shift shelters as well!

We were appointed by Lenham Storage as the waste management provider for their site at Lenham, Kent.

A new Leyland Daf Dustcart was added to the fleet and we bid a fond farewell to our Scania dustcart, which was the only vehicle to have been with us since our humble beginning in 2012.

Equinox Recycling donated an 1100ltr wheelie bin to Marden Russets Hockey Club for use at the club’s astroturf pitch and clubhouse throughout the 2016/17 season.

As the sole waste provider for Elite Pubs – who have a portfolio of seven pubs across Kent and Sussex – the management team at Equinox enjoyed a complimentary dinner at the newly-opened Potting Shed in Langley.

Moving forward into 2017, we hope to achieve an equal amount of success. As a company, we are constantly growing and striving to provide the best possible service to our customers, so will continue to invest in vehicles, services, training and employees that enable us to achieve and maintain current high standards. 

On a final note, Equinox Recycling would just like to thank our partners, customers and staff members for making 2016 an exciting year.
