Rainbow Red has a Waste Carrier Licence

Rainbow Red is delighted to announce that it is now the proud owner of a Waste Carrier Certificate from The UK Environment Agency.


As a Licenced Upper Tier carrier/broker/dealer, it means that we are registered to carry waste (including items for the charity shop, recycling point or tip) from a client site, and to organise for others to do the same. Licences are valid for 3 years.


To check our Waste Carrier Status, find us on the Environment Agency Website:
The Business Link website is a good place to find out more about Waste Carrier Licenses (as the Environment Agency's website is rather confusing): http://www.businesslink.gov.uk/bdotg/action/detail?itemId=1086990573&type=RESOURCES

apdo-uk Conference - 26th March 2012

When she's not busy working with her clients and running her own business, Cherry Rudge of Rainbow Red is also a Member of -- and Marketing Officer for -- The Association of Professional Declutterers & Organisers UK (apdo-uk).

Cherry organised and was a key speaker at the Association's recent conference at the Park Crescent Conference Centre in London, where apdo-uk was delighted to launch its first ever charity partnership - with Anxiety UK.  


A fabulous day was had by all attendees, and the great guys at Media On Demand Streaming captured the essence of the day by creating a superb webcast for us - see some of the edited highlights here (YouTube).

Debbie Conibere, Fundraising Co-ordinator of 1st Weybridge Scout Troop (the oldest scouting group in Surrey) has thanked Rainbow Red's clients who kindly contributed around 20 dustbin bags of textiles, towards their recent HQ Renovation Appeal.


Textile Recycling company Phil The Bag confirmed that 1st Weybridge had broken all records, by collecting an astounding 4 tonnes (1000 bags) of assorted clothing, bags, bed linen, towels, curtains, etc from local Elmbridge residents.  


And still the trollies come!
