Our Green Credentials
How we Maximise Landfill Diversion
We aim to separate 100% of the materials we collect so that we can transfer them to dedicated recycling facilities for maximum landfill diversion.
Our Reuse Network
We donate to charity organisations such as the British Heart Foundation and Salvation Army. We donate all types of good quality furniture and electrical items and have book and clothes recycling banks at our office and warehouse in Hemel Hempstead to maximise the re-use of items we collect.

Recognition for Recycling
We have won various awards in recognition of our high standards of landfill diversion.
How do we achieve this?
Efficient material separation process; we separate all types off recyclable materials like wood, metal and WEEE.
We have an excellent network of re-use and recycling organisations working with us.
By using industry leading commercial recycling facilities and transfer stations to recycle the waste we collect wherever possible.
By encouraging and training all staff to recycle and re-use.
Over 90% of our office furniture and equipment is re-used materials like furniture and paper.
To exceed our customers’ expectations and to minimise the environmental impact of our activities, we will:
Reuse and recycle any materials collected whenever it makes economic and environmental sense to do so.
Always aim to find alternative measures to landfill.
Promote and lead in paperless communication wherever possible.
Consider environmental impact in every decision we make.
Minimise vehicle emissions using intelligent routes for collections.
Educate and encourage both our staff and customers about their environmental impact.
Build relationships with local charities that enables us to increase our ratio of reused items.
We strive for excellence in all that we do by planning, controlling and continually improving our business services and processes and safety standards thereby reducing our impact on the environment.
We comply, as a minimum, with all applicable legal and other agreed requirements.
We only operate services we know and can control.
Safety, health and the protection of the environment are integral parts of our operating ethos. We will always adhere to this ethos with regard to our employees, suppliers, contractors and the community at large.
We strive to create and maintain a reasonable balance between economic, social and environmental needs by practising the principles of responsible care and sustainable development.Contact Us
