Organising a collection

The way you set about organising the collection of recyclables from your company / organisation will depend on its size and on-site activities.

Large manufacturers, distributors and retailers

It is likely that large manufacturers, distributors and retailers will be able to set up their own independent recycling systems, as it is probable that the quantities of plastics they are able to divert from the waste stream will be large enough to justify this.

Small and medium size enterprises (SMEs)

Small and medium size enterprises are unlikely to produce sufficient quantities of plastics waste to make setting up their own independent recycling systems feasible and will need to link in to a wider network to secure a service. If you are an SME you have three options available, you can:

  • Approach your local council and local waste disposal contractors to see if they can offer a recyclables collection service in your area. 
  • Approach local community groups to see if they offer or would be interested in setting up a recycling collection from businesses. Your local council or a Local Community Recycling Network may be able to advise you of your nearest local groups.
  • Work together with other local businesses to organise collections. This is made easier where a business club is already established in the area and businesses can work together to determine the types and quantities of plastics they have available for recycling in order to optimise the scheme. Your local council or Chamber of Commerce may be able to provide local contacts.
