Paper Recycling

Paper recycling for your business


We provide a national bulk recycling service for paper and all other types of paper waste. Our usual minimum collection quantity is approximately 4 tonnes depending on the area of the country. Collections can be made if the material is boxes, palletised or baled and loaded on to a curtain sider vehicle.

In summary, our service includes:

  • Regional collection service for smaller loads
