A team from TG Enviro, part of the Tudor Griffiths Group in Ellesmere, have recycled a skip into a seating area which is now touring the country.

The skip seat is now being displayed around trade and agricultural shows to promote TG Enviro and other Group’s services, and was used at the British Ironwork Centre in Oswestry.

Kevin Gardiner, Divisional Manager at TG Enviro, said: “The design for the seat came from our Waste Manager John Pugh – we had discussed how it would be a great way to promote our skip hire services, and so we came up with a plan of how to convert the skip and we’re delighted with the result.”

The seating area’s creation comes as TG Enviro restructured its business, which caused an increase in demand for its services.

Gardiner said: “The complete restructure of the TG Enviro side of the business gave us an excellent opportunity to review our services and procedures, and our approach to sustainable and renewable energy.

“The increase in demand for our skip hire services is excellent news and is as a direct result of our rejuvenated approach to this part of the business. Thanks to the rise in bookings, we have also purchased an extra skip hire vehicle in order to meet the demands of our existing and new customers, and the business is continuing to grow.”
