Compact & Bale to sponsor the Garden Retail Awards 2008

Compact & Bale is the latest company to sign up to sponsor the Garden Retail Awards 2008.

The Kent-based company is a market leader in the supply of waste and recycling equipment and services and is to sponsor the best environmental policy award.

Compact & Bale supplies hospitals, shopping centres, government departments and companies including the garden centres Knights, Secretts, Chessington, Coolings and Frosts with compacting, baling, recycling machines and technical support.

Dan Windibank, who works in the sales and marketing department said:

"We want garden centres to reduce their carbon footprints and bring in recycling strategies that will make them more profitable.

"Many companies don't know the regulations about their waste. We're glad to sponsor the awards because it will raise awareness about waste issues and landfill costs and in the garden centre sector raise awareness of our company and attract custom."
