B&M Waste cements its commitment to real living wage

B&M Waste Services is now accredited as a Living Wage Employer. Its Living Wage commitment will see everyone working at B&M Waste continuing to receive a minimum hourly wage of £9.50 in the UK or £10.85 in London. Both rates are significantly higher than the government minimum for over 23s, which currently stands at £8.91 per hour.

B&M Waste Services director, Neil Curtis, said: “As a family-run company, we care about our employees, customers and the environments in which we operate. We have grown our business to provide recycling-led, carbon neutral waste services across the UK and our employees are the backbone of our success. They deserve to be recognised for the tremendous hard work they put in and to receive a fair reward for their efforts. Whilst we have already paid a living wage to our employees since its inception in 2016, we wanted to make it official and cement our commitment to fair pay so that we can begin to work alongside our supply chain to actively promote the living wage.”
