"Whilst writing I would like to thank you and your teams for making this daunting task painless. 18.5 tonnes of paper gone within two days ! Your teams worked quickly and efficiently to clear the huge quantities – but also assisted in our recycling by saving folders, archive boxes etc. I cannot thank you all enough. I look forward to working with you again in the near future. "
