Recycling collections services
Plastic recycling collections
Unless we take radical action through plastics recycling, there will be more plastic than fish in our oceans by 2050
With everyone becoming more aware of plastic pollution, now’s the time to invest in a plastic recycling solution.
As one of the leading reprocessors of domestic plastics in the UK and a founding signatory to the UK Plastics Pact, our plastics recycling facilities are the most sophisticated of their kind in the country.
Food and organics collections
Separating your food and organics recycling can have a huge impact on your cost-efficiency
Food and organic waste can be heavy and bulky, it could be filling up your general waste and recycling. By opting for a separate food and organic waste solution, it could help your business save money.
Our team will be able to advise you on how food and organics recycling can help reduce the size and weight of your general waste bin, driving down costs associated with environmental compliance and landfill tax, and converting your green and food waste into high-quality compost and green energy.
We are proud to be one of the UK’s leading recyclers of glass, investing in the latest glass recycling technologies
Recycling glass doesn’t have to be expensive, time-consuming, or take up lots of space.
Glass is infinitely recyclable without having any reduction in quality, which saves raw materials, reduces energy, cuts CO2 emissions and reduces the amount going to landfill.
By recycling your glass, it will help boost your recycling rates and avoids landfill disposal costs.
Our customer-centric approach will give you the right waste and recycling solution. We will carry out a waste audit on your business and advise you on the best solution for your requirements.

Paper and cardboard collections
Paper and cardboard recycling is an easy, efficient way to cut down your general waste
Paper recycling is growing in popularity, not simply because more paper is being used, but because the way we collect, and grade paper has become much more sophisticated, efficient and effective. This means far less CO2 is generated and less energy used when making new paper from recycled stock.
Viridor has an enviable reputation in the paper recycling industry, and we are the leading recycler of all types of paper and cardboard. We collect from printers, direct mail houses, newsprint factories and offices. 100% of the paper we handle in this way is successfully recycled.
