Re-purposing waste

We’re committed to the circular economy and a world where waste is reimagined

The circular economy plays a huge role in the Recycling industry, where the life of materials is extended for re-purpose and re-use to be entered back into the lifecycle, thus avoiding the mining of further natural resources and necessity to create new materials when we already have what is needed in circulation.

It’s a prerogative at Recycling Lives to ensure that the quality of our recycled materials is the highest possible for further re-purpose, which means we make every effort to use the most sustainable and efficient processes possible.​  Equally important is the holistic approach we take to streamlining processes, reducing energy consumption, minimising landfill, and using digitisation and innovation to continually improve and increase recovery of usable materials.​

​We do all of this working with the justice system and sister Recycling Lives Charity, to provide work opportunities, prevent offending and re-offending, in turn giving back to local economies and communities, so positive social impact is truly embedded to all the work we do and a strong contributor to our environmental initiatives.​

​As a member of Business in the Community’s Circular Economy Taskforce, we work with other businesses, manufacturers and government bodies to find and implement practical solutions.
