A top housing provider will shrink its carbon footprint and save money after signing a new recycling deal.

Futures Housing Group is working with Nottingham-based Enva to recycle more materials, send less to landfill and save around £18,000 on disposal costs over the next two years.

The arrangement means Futures will recycle timber for the first time on top of materials they have always recycled such as metal, plasterboard, rubble, uPVC and glass.

Phil Brailsford, Repairs Manager at Futures, said: “This is an excellent deal for Futures Housing Group’s green credentials. It means we are sending less to landfill, recycling more and saving money.

“Providing value for money for our customers is absolutely essential to Futures and contracts like this are a great demonstration of that commitment.”

Paul Clements, Commercial Director at Enva, said: “We’re always keen to work with local companies looking to increase their recycling rates.

“The combination of services we’ve developed together will allow Futures to significantly boost their recycling rates without changing the way they work too much.”

Futures Housing Group is an ambitious, growing housing provider which manages nearly 10,000 homes throughout the East Midlands.
