Schools, Universities, Hospitals, Care homes, sports facilities….anywhere that provides a valuable service to society get special treatment from Collect and Recycle. And we were delighted when an enquiry was placed on the website from a secondary school in East London requesting a quote for the urgent removal of 200 bin bags containing shredded office paper.
An existing collector had let the school down but Collect and Recycle were able to provide a next day collection for all this paper to be recycled as well as a price that they were more than happy with.
The delivery was intelligently co-ordinated to minimise emissions from transportation where nearby collections on that day were synchronised to lower the carbon footprint of the job.
We are passionate about the environment so like to practice what we preach when we’re giving information to not only our customers but the public. Using a single vehicle to cater for many jobs on the same day reduced the impact of fossil gas usage from fuel as well as reducing the price to the school.
Collect and Recycle believe that demonstrating the importance of recycling to the newest generation will contribute to the growth of knowledge in the future and aid the effort for a zero waste world.
