Securing Confidential Waste LEAFIELD Recycle - 10.10.2012

Compliance with the Data Protection Act has been made a little easier by the introduction of Envirobin lockable, confidential waste bins from Leafield Environmental.
Securing Confidential Waste
Since the1998 Data Protection Act came into force, there has been much debate about the disposal of confidential information. Important bank details and personal contact details have been found carelessly and illegally dumped in ordinary bins. The solution to the proper management and disposal of sensitive confidential details is simple – use a lockable bin and employ a trusted waste management company to destroy this information.

Under the Act, businesses must have a ‘data control policy’ to ensure that secure methods are used to prevent the unlawful disclosure or accidental loss of personal data and Leafield’s Envirobin range of confidential waste bins can play a vital role within this policy.

Leafield’s confidential bins range covers sizes from 55, 82, 100 to 140 litres to accommodate all business environments. The stylish bins are manufactured from tough, resilient MDPE and come with lockable lids to ensure sensitive documents remain confidential.

“In today’s environment of identity theft and fraud, it is crucial for all concerned, that confidential details are treated carefully and disposed of in a responsible manner,” said Phil Maddox, Managing Director at Leafield Environmental. “Our range of confidential bins should be the first step for any business wanting to achieve Data Protection Act compliance.”

Leafield Environmental also works with a number of waste management companies, operating to BS15713:2009, to remove and destroy confidential material securely.

Leafield Environmental at Seeing is Believing LEAFIELD Highway - 10.10.2012

Leafield Environmental will be exhibiting its range of Highway and decorative bollards and signs at Seeing is Believing 2012.

Visitors to stand 69 will see several new bollards exhibited in the UK for the first time, including the new Manchester bollard, reminiscent of the cast iron bollards used for centuries but offering the benefits of modern day manufacturing materials.

Also on display for the first time will be the Sentry Junction bollard developed specifically to mark the precise position of poorly lit rural junctions.

Of special interest will be the recently launched Illuminated Night Owl keep left bollard… a retroreflective, self righting, sign bollard powered by Zeta, that is designed to be highly visible but cause minimal damage to the vehicle or the bollard itself should a collision occur… so reducing bollard replacement costs.

A further ‘first time’ exhibit will be the Linsign 150, an exciting new range of sign bollards that is said to be the perfect solution for designating cycle ways or parking slots, vehicle/pedestrian demarcation or controlling site access.

Out on track area 7, visitors will see both illuminated and non-illuminated Night Owl bollards in action, along with the highly visible Sentry Junction bollard and Heritage Visibol bollards with their highly reflective banding, all in a street scene display.

Soaking Hay Just Got Easier LEAFIELD Agricultural - 10.10.2012

Pull the Plug on Winter Blues with the Paxton Equine Soak-a-Way.

Soaking hay is a proactive approach, claimed to reduce the risk of numerous equine ailments. Paxton Equine has introduced a new Hay Soaker with integrated draining to make this laborious and wet task a little easier.

Cut grass, when dried, has a water content of less than 10% and this increases its sugar, potassium, acidity, and contaminant content. Soaking dry feed with water has been shown to remove sugar and contaminants, for the overall health of the horse. Mould, spores and other allergenic particulate matter can sensitise a horse, causing coughing which can develop into Recurrent Airway Obstruction (heaves).

Soaking hay is reported to be of great help in avoiding such problems and the Paxton Soak-a-Way makes soaking hay a less arduous chore.
Manufactured throughout in heavy-duty, UV stabilised, frost resistant, food grade polyethylene, the Paxton Soak-a-Way Hay Soaker will not rust or corrode, giving many years of useful duty. It is moulded with a strong double skin for enhanced durability and better heat retention. It comes with a substantial lid, has a smooth, easy clean surface and has ‘horse friendly’ rounded corners for safe use.

The 38mm drain in the bottom has with a plug and fixed chain that makes emptying the Hay Soaker an easy proposition. With capacity to take half a bale or the equivalent loose or netted material, the Paxton Soak-a-Way Hay Soaker could keep you drier and make your stable work more pleasurable this winter.

Leafield success at RWM LEAFIELD Recycle - 18.9.2012

Leafield are recently returned from the RWM show and are pleased to say that judging from the flood of visitors to their stand, it seemed busier than ever. The stand got more than its fair share of compliments and the new Meridian Envirobins were really well received, especially the Triple lid for the Meridian which was the first outing for this unique recycling bin.

The Meridian recycling bin was designed in conjunction with the University of Greenwich to produce the ultimate recycling bin. The stylish Meridian is designed for the sustainable journey; the 110 litre bin is available with interchangeable lids which enable a company to change the waste streams as the recycling project progresses with a view to the achieving the ultimate goal of ‘Zero Waste’. The Triple lid adds another level of versatility to collect three waste streams in one compact unit. The inclusive signage and WRAP labelling ensures minimal cross-contamination.

The Smart-e range of bins were also very popular with exhibition visitors, the bold, bright colours were eye catching and the Smart-e process in which 90% recycled material is used to make the bins can be applied to almost any Leafield product, thus emphasising the recycled nature of the bin for any environment. The Smiley Face Smart-e bin in particular was eliciting lots of smiles and attention from exhibition goers!

As well as launching the Meridian Triple and Smart-e bins at the RWM show, Leafield exhibited their wide selection of premium recycling and litter products for indoor and outdoor use. Award winning favourites such as the 170 litre TwinBin and 140 litre Envirobank, and the classic Heritage litter bin gained as much as attention as the new products.

Finally, Leafield would like to say thank you to those that took the time to visit their stand.

The Palladian mansion near Warminster is set in a2650 acre site and attracts thousands of visitors a year. So many visitors to the site means a lot of waste going to landfill. To preserve the environment and National Trust reputation, the manager of Stourhead decided to set in place recycling facilities for the multitude of picnickers.

After careful research, Tamsin Holmes, Environmental Practices Coordinator at Stourhead approached Leafield Environmental due to the quality and aesthetics of their products. Tamsin commented “I selected Leafield above their competitors as they were able to provide the suitable size and look for the bin we required. We chose the Envirobank for its 140 litre capacity and were able to ‘personalise’ it in a Heritage Green colour with our logo to match the National Trust identity. We also strongly believe in using local products and services, Leafield fit the bill in this respect too”.
