Access for the unit to be removed must be checked in advance by the customer and Eco Catering informed of any restrictions to remove the unit. The dismantling or breaking down of existing equipment is not part of the standard removal service. The Customer must make Ecomax Catering aware of any additional works or requirements to remove the existing unit/s. We will quote accordingly if additional services are required. Failure to inform Ecomax Catering of any restrictions in advance of the installation and removal date may result in the works being aborted and the equipment being left on site.

Intention and Commitment
ecomax-catering.co.uk is committed to reducing its effects on the environment. Where possible the staff and management are working to prevent or eliminate the environmental hazards and impacts that a company’s people, activities, operations and products can create. It is understood by the management that this is a long term commitment and as such will be reviewed and monitored in an effort to seek to continuously improve our environmental performance.
All employees, customers and other stakeholders are asked to respect the environmental goals laid out in this policy and to participate in discussion about environmental issues
- Putting into effect energy saving technologies that will be beneficial for the environment as well as our energy consumption levels. - Reduce pollution, emissions and waste - Considering daily activities and taking responsibility for minimising negative impacts on the environment. Daily routines such as travelling to work is one of the things taken into account and all employees are encouraged to find ways other than driving (we support the cycle to work scheme.) - Waste management is a key area that is taken into consideration, especially our paper. Any discarded paper is reused as scrap before being taken to a recycling bin. - Purchasing office supplies that have been recycled or are recyclable and local, being mindful of the carbon footprint of the product. - Saving building resources as much as possible in accordance to the latest eco guidelines is essential especially when considering things such as energy consumption from lighting to computer systems. - Expect similar environmental standards from all suppliers and contractors - Passing on our knowledge to help educate our clients and potential clients about environmental standards and efficiency within the catering industry is something we take pride in doing. - Staff training and participation
We understand that the changes we make now will have an impact on future resources in regards to the environment. Global warming is such a fundamental issue and without any behavioural change made our environment will suffer and natural supplies will decline at an even quicker rate.
All employees and management staff will be provided with a copy of The Environmental Policy Statement and training will be given to ensure everyone understands the statement and what is expected of them. A copy of this policy statement can be found on the company intranet and on the company website.
