Recycling

Currently we divert over 82% of everything we uplift from landfill. Check out how we do it.

Strong partnerships with local charities and other local community-based organisations enable us to redistribute items of potential value, such as clothing and furniture, to people who can benefit.

These can be materials such as

  • Timber
  • Metals
  • Paper
  • And cardboard

What happens to my good junk?

We donate any useable furniture that we collect various charitable organisations. For example, well known organisations such as the British Heart Foundation and Oxfam benefit from donations of books/clothing and bric a brack.

Our useable furniture is donated to the Glasgow and Edinburgh Furniture initiatives that assist low income families furnish their homes.

One of our primary goals is to increase landfill diversion. We do this a number of ways:

  • We only purchase new low emission vehicles
  • We only use transfer stations with particularly high onsite recycling rates
  • We donate as many useable items as we possibly can
  • Our offices are as paper free as possible and have been kitted out by recycled items from our office clearances

We meet on a regular basis with The Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA) to ensure that we are up to date with any changes in legislation and doing everything we possibly can to help the environment.
