Our industry experts are on hand to reduce waste, create additional resources from your waste, and help meet sustainability and social value goals.

A strategic approach to high volumes and problematic waste streams

Single-stream recycling enables businesses to focus on a high volume or problematic waste stream and work with us to produce a bespoke solution. Using closed-loop principles to achieve a circular economy approach, we will work with customers to unlock potential value from waste. Or, in some instances, we simply provide a more environmentally friendly recycling or reuse option. Check out WEEE recycling.

Using a strong network of charities and social enterprises, Reconomy can help deliver opportunities that help businesses deliver social value commitments and achieve sustainability goals through an industry-leading approach.

Glass recycling

Glass has infinite recycling capabilities. This means that it's more important than ever to recycle rather than rely on new production. Our supply chain facilities utilise world-leading processes. We use screening, and sorting technology to organise glass recycling. This ensures that over 99 per cent of incoming material is recycled.
