Community Recycling Consortium supporting letter 1

In nearly five years of business, we have offered work experience and apprenticeships to 91 local people that experience various forms/degrees of mental health.

With support and guidance, 81 of these have moved on to adult education or sustainable employment. That is a remarkable 89% success rate of which we are extremely proud.  Some have embraced the confidence and skills that we have nurtured and gone on to start up their own small businesses – a great achievement for those who would not even speak when first joining us!

Two of our most recent successes are Adam  and Judah.
Adam is one of our drivers and can be seen on the Guardian video.  He  has been with us for nearly three years and speaks openly about his mental health issues and “fitting in” with society.  We are delighted that he has developed the confidence to make himself  known as a budding author and wish him the best with all further writing.                                                                                                                                His novel,   Inherent Strain, by  A M Nixon,  is available as paperback or Kindle edition at                         https://www.amazon.co.uk/Inherent-Strain-Adam-Nixon-ebook/dp/B077CB1WHY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1534676103&sr=8-1&keywords=inherent+strain

Judah also appears in the film and, again, talks about his problems with  depression and how we have helped to develop his confidence.  It is our loss that he will be leaving to take up full time employment elsewhere in October.  We are very sorry to lose him but our whole ethos is to build up confidence and send our recruits into the world of work.

As part of its community focus CRC collects, dismantles and recycles redundant computers, laptops, tablets, ipads, servers (free of charge) and other electronic goods from schools, colleges and businesses across the Midlands.

  • I would like to take the time to thank all the team at CRC – what an amazing service! The booking process was simple and the turnaround was frighteningly quick. When the collection team arrived on site, they were the epitome of professionalism; very thorough, good humoured and worked like Trojans. The after-care was equally superb, with certificates and logs all arriving quickly. They even managed to find a few serial numbers I had missed!    

    They are an outstanding company to work with, and I have no hesitation in giving them my highest personal recommendation.

    Mike Burns, Head of Planning & Operation, Stoke on Trent Sixth form College
  • Our technicians inform me that our schools are happy that they get the logs and certification needed, and also that you donate the equipment or break it down. We will continue to recommend your service as we do installations for new kit etc.

    Lesley Enston, MGL World, Liverpool
  • Thanks again for the very quick pickup of our surplus bits and pieces, it was a pleasure.

  • Thank you.  I’ve been running around the huge open space cleared on the landing.
    Your boys did an excellent job.

    Jane Macdonald, Nowell Mellor Solicitors, Stafford
  • We chose CRC as they are a local company that met all the legal criteria, employ staff who have a mental health issue or disability, recycle all items 100% and the service is free.  It doesn’t get more environmentally friendly and ethical than that!

  • Broxap are proud to be supporting a local Community Recycling Consortium (CRC) volunteer project.

    Broxap recently had their first collection of IT hardware. We are proud to be supporting a great local cause.

  • Fast, efficient and friendly service from CRC, we have used them for a number of years now to dispose of our redundant IT equipment and I can thoroughly recommend them.

    Brian Pearson, System Officer, St Edward’s C of E Academy, Leek.
  • We got to use your company eventually.  I know it’s taken a while for us to sort this. I must say that our Facilities Manager Tony Stubbs was impressed with the 2 men who came to collect from us. They were polite, and very hard working. Please pass on my comments to them.

    Mary Disilvestro, CAPULA, Market Drayton
  • Excellent service! We have been using CRC for some years now and their team do a great job for our schools. Highly recommended.

  • Great, efficient service, always completed with a smile and a bit of banter thrown in, happy to endorse these guys as the service is provided legally and ethically which for us is the main benefit

  • Our school has used CRC on a number of occasions for the disposal of a range of IT equipment. The service has been extremely friendly and efficient, with certification to confirm proof that hard-drives etc have been deleted, which is very reassuring. I would recommend the service to other schools without reservation.

    Stephanie Fairfield Infants School, Derbyshire
  • Excellent and friendly service from CRC. On several occasions they have collected a van load of old equipment from us as arranged, recycled it and sent us all the correct paper work. What more could we ask for?
