Recycling services

With over three decades of experience, we are experts at managing your recycling in a cost-effective and compliant way. We collect recyclable materials from more than 30,000 organisations throughout the country, processing them through our national network of recycling facilities before sending them on to specialist, approved reprocessors to be turned into new products.

Mixed recycling

Our mixed recycling collection service means you can put paper, cardboard, cans and plastic bottles together in the same container – a convenient and easy way for your business to recycle more.

Mixed recyclables are taken to materials recycling facilities to be sorted, before being baled and sent on to be made into new products.

Single stream recycling

As well as mixed recyclables, we collect recycling in single streams. This is useful when you produce a large volume of a single type of material – such as paper, cardboard, metal, glass, plastic and wood – and can place it in dedicated containers for that material type.

Specialist recycling
Some materials aren’t straightforward to recycle, as they’re made of several different types or composite materials. These items require specialist processes and facilities.

Coffee cup recycling

Available nationwide, SUEZ’s coffee cup recycling service is a simple and practical recycling solution turning our customers’ single-use cups into new products.

This service helps our customers implement a closed-loop recycling solution in their businesses and to make our coffee cup recycling service even more sustainable, we pledge that for every cup recycling box sent back to our sorting facility, we’ll plant a tree to restore a habitat in woodlands in the UK.
