Paper Recycling

Collection Charge:

The waste paper collection service is charged at £24.00 per collection

​OR Containers to help you collect waste paper in your offices. Such as:

to photocopiers for £3.60 each.


Cardboard Recycling

For cardboard we charge 1.20p per bundle or £3.60 per 240l wheeled bin. We can only take cardboard along with your paper recycling; we no longer do cardboard only collections. 


We are unable to process plastic.

Any plastic in our skips results in contamination, and incurs extra costs.

If any sacks /bags/ bins  are collected that have plastic in them, we would have to return them to you and charge for our time and collection.


Archive Clear Outs

We are very flexible in meeting your requirements for collecting end-of-life, business archives and similar clear-outs.

The charge will depend on the amount and grade of the material, its accessibility and whether it needs  confidential shredding or just recycling. Please call us on 01274 581775 to arrange a quote.
