Waste King: recyclers to the stars – and, sometimes, the stars themselves

The waste collections and recycling specialist, Waste King, has helped in the making of a new film – Re-Uniting the Rubins, a comedy drama about a completely dysfunctional Jewish family and starring Timothy Spall, Rhona Mitra, James Callis and Honor Blackman – by clearing up the various shooting locations after each day’s filming.

The film – which is being released in early 2010 – was shot a during the summer in South Africa, Elstree Film Studios and locations in and around London including The Fish Market at Canary Wharf, Radisson Hotel in Canary Wharf, the University of Harrow and Radlett Cricket and Rugby Clubs.

Waste King’s Glenn Currie explained: “Making the film involved a lot of people and they were moving to new locations regularly. When they moved location, it was important to clear the site where they had been completely – otherwise the film company could have been accused of fly tipping.

“The film company couldn’t leave any waste and, in any case, needed to concentrate on making the film,” he added. “So they were happy to call us in to ensure that what they didn’t need any more was recycled in a highly environmentally friendly way.”

“We were delighted with the efficient and reliable service we received from Waste King,” said Jonathan Weissler, owner of Balagan Productions, the Producer of ‘Re-Uniting the Rubins’, which is due for release early next year. “We are anxious to ensure that our operations are as environmentally and ecologically friendly as possible, especially in the light of the huge amount of waste a film set generates daily – and so we’re grateful to Waste King for the help and advice they gave us.”

But Waste King is also used to being in front of the cameras. In the summer, Waste King’s Andy Cattigan featured in a sketch which was televised on Big Brother’s Little Brother (BBLB).

The sketch, now available at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EBKbb1qirCA, was filmed at a Transfer Waste station and re-enacted a scene from that week’s Big Brother programme.

BBLB is a magazine television programme that airs on Channel 4 and E4, running in conjunction with each series of Big Brother. It looks at Big Brother-related activities outside the House and features interviews with celebrities, journalists and friends and family of housemates and, sometimes, recently evicted housemates.
