External cladding
Specialist waste management solutions

Safety is the priority

With some forms of cladding having been found to be combustible, it has prompted a building safety crisis affecting many thousands of families all over the UK.

It is critical that unsafe cladding is no longer used, which is why the UK Government has set out a five-point plan to bring reassurance to homeowners and confidence back to the housing market. New measures and schemes are being introduced to further boost the housing market through funding, levies, taxes, and a new safety regime.

At Reconomy, we understand the pressures and specific requirements of working on multi-story residential buildings within major cities and urban areas. We will therefore work with you to develop a waste management programme that delivers whatever it takes to keep your project on time and on budget.
