Sustainability is one of SSE Contracting’s Core Values. As one of the largest street lighting contractors in the country striving to reduce the amount of waste generated in all areas of our business is a top priority. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE) set a target of recycling 80% of all UK lamps containing mercury. SSE Contracting exceeds this target by ensuring 100% of all lamp products are recycled with no element going to landfill.

Almost 10,000 street lights, bollards and illuminated road signs have been replaced over the first five years of the contract, as part of a huge revamp of street lighting by Islington Borough Council to help reduce street crime and road traffic accidents. Participating in the celebrations : Cllr James Kempton the leader of Islington Council, Andy Blincow (SEC) and local school children.
