We were delighted to be one of several good causes to have reaped the benefit of recycling – with funds raised by selling scrap metal being donated to us. In the picture above Stanley Robertson picked up the cheque on our behalf (front row, 3rd from right)
Between August 2004 and March this year BP, on behalf of the Sullom Voe Terminal owners and Cape Environmental Services, has raised money through the sale of scrap via the terminal waste management contract.
BP management agreed that money raised from the sale of skipped scrap metal should be donated to good causes. Bosses said staff across the site should be praised for excellent waste segregation.
Following a request for nominations to Sullom Voe Terminal employees, the following charities were chosen to benefit: Shetland Bereavement Support Service, MS Society Shetland Branch, Macmillan Cancer Support, Disability Shetland, Kiran’s Trust, Parkinson’s, Shetland Sands, Shetland Dogs against Drugs and Mind Your Head.
BP and Cape have a waste policy that promotes elimination, reuse and recycling. Site scrap metal recycling is achieved by good waste segregation. (Thank you to the Shetland Times for the use of the article).
