Based just outside Templepatrick, Northern Ireland, Coleman’s Garden Centre has been in business for over 50 years. However 2017 has been their most exciting yet!

Last week ISL Waste Management were delighted to be present for the completion of the the first phase of what will be a 55,000 square foot development, marking the next chapter in the future of the impressive business.

Our team, headed by Joe McCrystal, were delighted to have been recommended as a recycling partner to Richard Fry, Co-Director of Colemans, by a very valued and long standing client, Hutchinson Care Homes.

After initial conversations, it became obvious that as Colemans expanded, the existing waste disposal practices would no longer be manageable or controllable and had to be updated.

We liaised closely with Richard and Diane McNaught, the centre’s new catering manager and together we developed a clear plan for how Coleman’s waste can be managed but most importantly, reduced and recycled.

Coleman's Garden Centre, TemplepatrickWe set about preparing a process that would not only cope with the recycling needs of the new centre when it began trading, but also included future planning, for other aspects of the development.

We recognised that large quantities of waste plastic and cardboard would be produced in the lead up to opening. Arrangements were therefore made to supply equipment and to arrange for daily collections to ensure material was always being removed, to allow contractors and suppliers to continue their work unhindered. The changing requirements of the business as it developed were also recognised and built into the program.

Going forward, the recycling program now in place will ensure that everything from cardboard, plastic, food waste, general waste as well as wood waste and organic matter from the nurseries will be controlled and recycled. As a zero waste to landfill accredited company, ISL will work with Colemans to ensure the same accreditation passes to them.

Congratulations to the whole team at Colemans Garden Centre and we wish you the best of luck in these exciting times!
