Biffa launches ‘consumer’ waste brand

Posted by aclimaadmin | octubre 15, 2019 | Noticias del Sector

UK waste management giant Biffa has launched what it describes as its first ‘direct to consumer’ waste service, dubbed Skoup.

The service is being targeted primarily at small businesses, although will also be available to individual householders, and offers users the ability to book ad-hoc waste collections if it is needed.

Focus of the service is on bulky waste, including furniture and waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) targeting consumers carrying out household clearances, as well as offices.

Through an online app or via telephone, users can order a collection from a man with a van – costing £99, a skip from £130 or a single bag collection for £10. Biffa says the service will be available nationwide.

Declutter

Commenting on the launch of the service, George Pearce, commercial development manager at Biffa said: “The reason we have launched Skoup is simple – we are meeting an increasing demand in the UK for an easy and reliable way to get rid of unwanted ‘stuff’. Lifestyle influencers such as Marie Kondo are driving a growing movement to clear out and declutter our homes and businesses, while the trend of fewer people owning cars means less of us can take our waste to the tip like we used to.

“In addition, having the household name of Biffa behind the brand means people know they can trust Skoup to deal with their rubbish properly.”

According to Biffa name ‘Skoup’ comes from the Greek ‘Skoupídia,’ meaning junk, litter or refuse. It is also linked to the English ‘Scoop,’ meaning to remove or gather something up.
