Gloucester Sea Cadets

The cupboards have been used to kit out our five classrooms and are much appreciated by the staff as well as tidying up our bits and pieces. To be quite honest with this pandemic our finances would not have allowed us to do this. Please pass our many thanks onto your client.

Chair, Gloucester Sea Cadets

The Swan Sanctuary

We would like to thank Collecteco for coordinating and arranging collection of wheelie bins. We use them for feeding all the patients here at various locations at The Swan Sanctuary’s lakes and ponds, as well as inside the actual hospital complex. A very big thank you to everyone involved as we were about to purchase some bins so this has saved the charity rather a lot of money.

Tanat Valley Light Railway

“We are delighted to have the confidential waste bins as they will allow us to recycle waste on site, which up until now all got disposed of in general waste, so our ‘green’ footprint will go from zero to a minimum of 70% thanks to these bins.”

Mark Hignett

Secretary, Tanat Valley Light Railway
