EnviroThaw de-icer - the eco-friendly, non-damaging alternative to rock salt

* enviro-thaw-snow-ice-de-icer.jpg
EnviroThaw is a high performance and eco-friendly granular alternative to rock salt, which can be used on any paving surface without causing the damage that can be caused by rock salt.

Said to be some 90% less corrosive than rock salt, it is non-toxic to vegetation and grass, it minimises rust damage and won't tread into and harm carpets. It is also non-harmful to wildlife.

Cleanzine - the original Cleaning & Hygiene industry e-news

Read by industry professionals in 163 countries worldwide!
 

News just in as Cleanzine was about to broadcast, revealed that London’s Brent Council is to make £54m worth of cuts to services. According to The Times, litter (which of course shouldn’t exist in the first place!) will no longer be cleared from residential streets. The fact that the council’s CCTV cameras are also under threat paints an unpleasant picture of filthy, litter-strewn streets with no chance of finding, fining and re-educating the offenders…

In other, similar news, father-of-four Craig Lavelle is so incensed by his local council – Bury – cutting non-recyclables bin collections to once every three weeks that he’s offering fellow residents a private collection service at £8.50 a time. As he’s already in the waste disposal business, I’m assuming he’s done the figures.

Bury is the first council in England to dare to collect bins so infrequently and it claims that as well as saving £800,000 a year, it will force residents to recycle rather than discard. Of course it may also encourage fly tipping – although those considering this will need to ask themselves how long we can continue producing so much waste – and if they don’t have a social conscience, whether they’re going to be able to afford the fine and face a potential jail term plus the shame of being outed by the local paper!

Reader comments following the Mail Online report, reveal a 50:50-ish split between those who are also incensed and those who could quite easily cope if their bins were emptied monthly or even less frequently. The consensus seemed to be that disposable nappies were the main problem. So what can be done about those, I wonder?

Bury’s recycling scheme is not a patch on the one I enjoy but it could, no doubt, be tweaked to placate its residents. I know I’ve used Cleanzine previously to back the move from weekly collections to fortnightly and have said that a council tax discount might encourage residents to recycle more waste. I think now is the time for councils everywhere to give this option serious thought, considering the money that can be saved by cutting the frequency of collections.

What works for you?

Restora removes challenging adhesives from linen, reducing costs for healthcare laundries

Ecolab has introduced the Restora programme for healthcare laundries. The programme uses a patent-pending formula to remove medical adhesives from linen during the wash process, thus enabling healthcare laundries to reclaim linen that would have previously been discarded due to adhesive stains, helping to extend linen life and reduce replacement costs.

Tests show that the Restora programme can help healthcare laundries reclaim up to 99% of adhesive-stained linen. "Medical adhesive stains are difficult to remove and present one of the costliest challenges for healthcare laundries," notes Michael Johannsen, senior vice president of Global Textile Care at Ecolab.
