“We acknowledge the recent difficulties encountered by aspects of Recycling Lives Ltd’s operations, and our sympathies go out to those whose livelihoods have been affected by this situation.
“It’s crucial to distinguish our – Recycling Lives Charity & Social Enterprise’s – independence from the Recycling Lives commercial entities.
“Although we still share certain branding elements with Recycling Lives Ltd, and have working relationships with the metal and waste sectors, we are entirely independent in terms of operations, governance, legal status, and financial matters.
“As such, the recent developments within the business will not affect our capacity to continue supporting people through our rehabilitation and food redistribution programmes.
“We wish to reassure the community, including our participants, partners, suppliers, and supporters, that we remain steadfast and committed to our mission.
“We are committed to helping to any former participants affected by these events, and we will maintain our recycling-focused activities, including processing waste electrical items and diverting surplus food from waste.
“Our dedicated and enthusiastic team remain busy delivering these programmes, working to transform the lives of individuals, families, and communities.”
Jonathan Taylor, Chairman of Trustees for Recycling Lives Charity & Social Enterprise – charity no: 1116562
