Our Green Credentials

How we Maximise Landfill Diversion

At Waste King, our objective is clear: to separate 100% of the materials we collect. This dedicated effort allows us to channel these materials to specialised recycling facilities, significantly reducing landfill waste and enhancing environmental sustainability.

Our commitment to sustainability extends to our robust Reuse Network. We proudly collaborate with charitable organisations like the British Heart Foundation and the Salvation Army, donating high-quality furniture and electrical items. Furthering our reuse initiatives, we host book and clothing recycling banks at our Hemel Hempstead office and warehouse. This ensures maximum reuse of the items we collect. For more insights, we invite you to explore our Charitable Donation page.

Waste King’s dedication to minimising landfill waste has been recognised with various awards, affirming our commitment to recycling and environmental stewardship.

  • Efficient Material Separation: Our process meticulously sorts recyclable materials such as wood, metal, and WEEE, ensuring they are appropriately handled.
  • Strong Reuse and Recycling Partnerships: Our network includes leading reuse and recycling organisations, enhancing our recycling capabilities.

Top service
My wife booked a van to collect some building/garden rubbish, we got a phone call to let us know when they were 20 minutes away. Tom and Mo were brilliant, even the bits I thought would be to large or heavy were taken before I knew it, nothing was too much trouble and all done with a smile, will definitely use Wast King in the future.
