Acumen Wins Prestigious Gold Award

Acumen have recently completed a project for Blancomet Ltd

Acumen has helped out fellow waste management company Blancomet on a recent project. Blancomet are a Waste Management company that is based in Leeds, however it only has limited facilities to deal with its waste, and as therefore called upon Acumen’s expertise.

The project involved recycling lead batteries from the company’s site in Dunfermline, Scotland. Some tankers outside the factory had high levels of waste acid and would regularly reach full capacity until they were in immediate need of being disposed.

By outsourcing aspects of their waste management to Acumen, this meant Blancomet Ltd could concentrate on production and other areas of the business.

Acumen limited the amount of disruption to the surrounding local area by completing the job out-of-hours on a Sunday. This meant that the necessary road closure had minimal adverse effects of the local community.

The project was completed effectively and efficiently and left another satisfied customer who was “very pleased and impressed” by Acumen’s services.

Acumen is qualified and experience in handling and disposing a wide range of waste including hazardous waste like chemicals and acid. For more information about how Acumen can help your business, get in touch today on 0800 118 2165.
