I am writing this letter to thank you for your continuing support with all of our Yorkshire based projects.
As one of our key waste supply chain partners in Yorkshire you consistently
deliver both in our live construction projects and in our social and community investment projects.
As project manager for the delivery of the last Yorkshire Community Challenge, it was instinct to
engage with you from the outset. The refurbishment of ‘The Shed’ now known as St Luke’s Youth
Centre was a great success, with the client being absolutely overwhelmed by what we did and thus
leaving a long lasting legacy in the local community.
Without support from our key supply chain members such as yourselves this would not have been
possible, and C H Middleton were a vital part of this success. Therefore I’d just like to thank you once
more and hope you will continue to be a key partner in our social economic values.
Many thanks for all your help providing skips for our recent pitch and building renovation works. Without your assistance, half of our 21 football teams and the cricket club would not have been able to play and train on the land we lease.
Thanks to your generosity, we managed to clear a substantial amount of rubbish that had been left both by previous occupiers of the cricket club, and a large amount of fly tipped waste which had been dumped onto our football pitches, leaving them in an unsafe condition.
We are a local grassroots club in an area of high economic deprivation, so are constantly fundraising to provide facilities and opportunities for both children and adults in our community. We have big plans for the future and an army of volunteers all determined to improve the area and lives of local people.
Once again, thank you so much for your support. You are more than welcome to come to see our club in action and we may even throw in a bacon butty on match days!
A big thank you to all those involved in the DMBC / One3One Smart Light Project.
Approximately 45 thousand streetlights are being recycled via CH Middleton Ltd’s services through our network of local South Yorkshire suppliers. All stripped metals from this project were sold to local scrap yards and processed in UK foundries; All Plastics and Fibreglass went to Yorkshire suppliers for processing; Electricals such as Light Sensors were sorted and processed in South Yorkshire and ALL residues kept within the UK.
CH Middleton Ltd was asked to deliver a zero cost zero to landfill project. Although initially thought to be none viable, after careful consultation and planning with key suppliers a solution was presented.
The project yielded many results for Doncaster Council and its stakeholders:
The new lights will be more energy efficient and cheaper to run. They are designed to last for 100,000 hours, which is the equivalent to 25 years. In comparison, the existing lights last around six years before they need to be replaced.
The investment will pay for itself in 6 years, after which a benefit from a saving of £1.3m per year compared to the costs of running the current streetlights. This means Doncasters street lighting energy bill will be reduced by 70%.
As well as making savings of £1.3m per year, Doncaster Council will reduce its carbon footprint by 80% or 4,700 tonnes.
Over 90% of the waste was recycled (in the UK).
Such was the success of the project delivery, design and results that the project attracted nominations for (and won) several awards.
C H Middleton Limited, a Doncaster based Waste Disposal company, are celebrating their Golden Anniversary this year (yes, they have survived thus far for 50 years!!).
Despite their success they are not immune from the ‘credit crunch’ and were forced into making a number of staff redundant. Irrespective of this the friendly family atmosphere is being maintained and recently members of the office staff, Carol, Julie and Pam, entered into the spirit of the occasion and came to work dressed ready for ‘bed’ and during the course of the day raised in excess of £100 for the Sheffield Children’s Hospital Charity in response to Real Radios promotion.
On 21 May 2009, the company’s 50th anniversary date, the ‘girls’ ‘undressed’ for the occasion and turned up for work in their ‘birthday suits’. This opportunity was taken to raise funds for the Pulmonary Hypertension Association. Customers made contributions during the day and the fine sum of £336 was raised (this little known charity was selected as the Sister in Law of Julie, Joanne Carr, suffers from this life threatening condition).
A BIG thank you to the ‘girls’ and our customers’, on behalf of the company and from the charities that have benefited.
