Our recycling facilities

We have two state-of-the-art recycling plants, both centrally located in Leicester. The Collections and Processing Facility manages source segregated materials and the Materials Recycling Facility processes dry mixed recyclables.

The combined processing capacity is 300,000 tonnes a year, with a recovery rate of 97.5%. Most will be sold to UK reprocessors ensuring the recycling loop is completed close to home.

Our large pre and post-treatment storage areas provide you with the flexibility to manage fluctuating waste arisings. We also offer a comprehensive range of waste management support services to ensure that you get the recycling and resource recovery solution that works best for you.


Our locations

Our two sites are conveniently located in the Midlands, near to the M1/M69 junction. They are ideally situated to provide municipal, commercial and industrial recycling solutions, recovering maximum resource value without adding unnecessary waste miles.
