Crest Co-operative offer a range of services to the community, and their company statement is to “Unlock people’s potential through inclusion, innovation and enterprise, for the benefit of the community.”

But what exactly does a company statement like that mean? 

For a start, Crest provides employment opportunities for disabled and disadvantaged people, who feel that they are socially excluded. This involves the opportunity for people to use their employment at Crest to gain life skills, as well as real work experience which could be transferred to a range of scenarios in life, broaden social circles, and much more. Disabled members of the community can also use their time at Crest to do the same, on a permanent basis, in an inclusive and supportive work environment. 

Crest have broadened their horizons in recent years and run multiple facets of the business, which provides a great number of services to the community. Benefitting from lottery funding, Crest Cooperative have started an initiative which collects unwanted clothing, furniture, textiles and electrical goods from households within Conwy County Council, and this initiative in particular has resulted in 400 tonnes of unwanted goods collected, upscaled, and reused in 2014 alone.

Crest are responsible for a total of three dedicated collections on behalf of Conwy County Council.

In the case of electrical goods such as washing machines, tumble driers, dishwashers and other white goods, when they are collected they go to Crest’s dedicated facility where they are taken apart and examined thoroughly by Crest’s team of engineers. These engineers are fully certified, and are ex-workers of the Bodelwyddan Hotpoint Facility, whose high-profile closure in 2009 meant that a lot of workers were forced to take employment in unrelated industries in the local area or relocate beyond North Wales to find employment suited to their education and their skills.

Of note is Crest’s Ultra Clean Mattress scheme – where donated mattresses go through a 6-step cleaning process which entails an initial quality check, a deep clean to remove any and all marks on the exterior, a power vacuum which draws out all unwanted particles, UV light treatment to create a long-lasting clean interior, an intense dry steam blast which heats the mattress to 180 degrees in order to sanitise all areas of the mattress, and then finally a deodorising treatment which enables your mattress to be left completely and totally spick and span – even cleaner than brand new!
