Discover Twickenham has partnered with waste management service, First Mile, to provide waste and recycling services to BID businesses, in order to save money whilst helping the environment.

The partnership will allow members of Discover Twickenham to save up to 20% on their waste disposal and recycling costs.

First Mile services help businesses reduce their impact on the environment, through a carbon-neutral fleet, zero-to-landfill policy and sustainable recycling solutions for different material types.

Discover Twickenham says this is part of their plan to make the town centre have a safe and sustainable recovery.

Recently, it has organised the street cleaning and hanging flower baskets down the high street.

Richmond and Twickenham Times:

Natasha Heaphy, Manager of the Discover Twickenham BID, said:

“This is an exciting partnership that will benefit everyone in Twickenham. The businesses in the BID area that are already using First Mile are reaping the benefits from increased discounts on their bag orders for the rest of the year.

“These discounts will also apply to any new business in the BID area that comes on board this year.”

A user of First Mile from Baseri Barber Shop, said:

“Since using First Mile, I have been amazed with their flexible, daily collections. Whenever I need to order bags they are always delivered for the next working day.

“The bags are big, and I only seem to end up (on average) putting out one bag a week. I am also happy to know that I am sending nothing to landfill by using their service.”
