2017 // OUR YEAR IN REVIEW

2017 was an incredibly exciting year for us here at Equinox Recycling, so we’re kicking off 2018 by looking back on 2016 and reflecting on the progress our business has made over the last 12 months.

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

Equinox Recycling introduced its own tyre team, taking all tyre repairs and replacements in-house. This has enabled us to provide an efficient and reliable service to our customers and minimised the length of downtime or negative impact on customer collections.

We celebrated our 5th anniversary with a corporate day out at Twickenham for the penultimate weekend of the RBS 6 Nations 2017 tournament which saw England play against Scotland.

Our MD, Andy Gibbons sat and passed the Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) exams in National and International Road Haulage.

Equinox, along with 16 other teams, took part in the National Refuse Championships 2017 at Weston-Super-Mare in June. The event organised by Refuse Vehicle Solutions raised over £12,000 for the Alzheimer’s Society and we placed 7th overall.

Our Accounts Manager, Kayleigh, got married in September at The Gardens in Yalding. On the morning of the wedding, the bridal party descended on Equinox’s head office with hair and makeup teams in tow and were treated to a champagne breakfast by our Managing Director, Andy Gibbons and his partner Jackie (mother of the bride).

A Daf CF65.250 skip lorry was added to the fleet and has enabled us to improve and expand our skip delivery and collection service in West Kent.

Looking ahead

Moving forward into 2018, 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 2017 an exciting year.
