YOUR ASSOCIATION | PPC108 September 2022

Discounted waste service and advice line from Reliance

BPCA member company Reliance Service Solutions is offering fellow members 8% off waste services and a free waste advice service.

Alex Whelan, Operations Manager of Reliance, said: “We recognise the specialist challenges that pest control companies face, so we’ve put together an exclusive package just for BPCA members. “Whether you are a local provider or a national corporation, we have a dedicated advice service for BPCA members.”

BPCA Head of Membership, Dee Ward-Thompson, said: “On assessments and over the phone, we hear from members across the country that are struggling with their pest-related waste. “Reliance is in a unique position as they completely understand our sector. We’re confident they’ll be able to help with your waste queries.” 

Reliance offers an online portal that contains all your job reports and waste management notes. That means you’ll have full visibility of your waste records and can tick a crucial legal requirement with minimal effort. 

All BPCA members can access this benefit.

Discounted training directly from Wade Environmental

BPCA consultant member Wade Environmental is now offering a discount on training courses for other members and their employees. Courses are run by industry expert Alex Wade and cover a variety of pest control-related subjects. 

BPCA members get 10% off courses run directly by Wade Environmental for all employees.

The discount includes bespoke courses that can be designed specifically for your employees’ requirements. 

Alex said: “BPCA is a great force of good in the sector, so we wanted to ensure we support the association wherever we can. “Offering a discount to fellow members is a great way for us to reach companies passionate about CPD and technicians with a thirst for knowledge.”

Courses run on behalf of other organisations are excluded from the discount.
