“Since working with Axil, we have further improved our approach to the disposal of various materials, ensuring the methods adopted are cost effective and efficient. As an ISO 14001 certified company, we put a great deal of emphasis on our efforts towards recycling, and Axil understood this from the start, working together to not only segregate and improve our recycling facilities, but to train staff in the importance of doing so.”
