B&M Waste’s ‘Refuse Not Refuge’ Campaign is Championed by Crisis

Categories: In The Community

B&M Waste Services continues to demonstrate its commitment to nominated charity, Crisis, by active;y working with them to raise awareness of ‘Refuse Not Refuge’ – a national campaign highlighting the dangers of sleeping in bins.

Crisis has begun promotion of the campaign at its prominent and widely-used Skylight London centre, where ‘Refuse Not Refuge’ literature and posters will be available to its 4000 members. Skylight centres offer classes, workshops and activities for its members, as well as one-to-one attention and support. Following Skylight London, promotion of ‘Refuse Not Refuge’ will be rolled out through centres across the country.

Jayne Kennedy, Marketing Manager for B&M Waste Services, said “Our ‘Refuse Not Refuge’ campaign is an important step in raising awareness of the dangers that can arise from sleeping in bins. As a waste service provider, it’s obviously something that we’re very aware of – but, sadly, many people are not. We want to change that – and, with the help of Crisis, we’re hoping we can.”

As the larger bins – known as FEL containers – are dry and sheltered, homeless people or those under the influence of alcohol or drugs can see them as an appealing option against cold or wet weather. Sadly, however, there have been tragic incidents in recent years where people have taken refuge and been killed when a bin has been emptied. B&M staff undertake a risk assessment before any container is sited. If the customer or staff feel there may be any risk, B&M will prove a lockable container to prevent an incident.
