Peter Fitchett, Absolute Rubbish
Peter applied for £2,600 from Fredericks Wiltshire in May 2010 to enable him to purchase a signwritten tipper van for his business which is based in Swindon Wiltshire. After leaving school Peter temporarily worked at a pizza parlour before joining the British Army in 2000. After leaving the Army in 2003 he had a variety of jobs including sales manager, ground worker and manager at a gym.
After being made redundant in 2009, Peter worked on his business plan to set up as a licensed waste carrier for both commercial and domestic waste. He attended the Business Link workshops www.businesslink.gov.uk and worked with the Princes Trust, unfortunately they were unable to provide Peter with the start up capital required and so Peter became Fredericks Wiltshire's first client.
Peters business will initially provide collection for households and commercial waste with plans to expand later into breaking up driveways and removal of domestic appliances which for some items requires a special licence.
Wiltshire Council, Swindon Borough Council and GWE Business West have provided Fredericks with funding to support people like Peter in the Swindon and Wiltshire area.
