Restaurants, Bar and Cafes Recycling
We take glass from bars, oil from restaurants and coffee cups & grounds from cafes - alongside everything else that needs recycling.
Use our low-cost, pay as you go and easy recycling services in pubs, restaurants, cafes and eateries to recycle up to 90% of your waste. We will even recycle your coffee grounds and coffee cups if you offer this service to customers.
Our shiny trucks serve thousands of social hubs every day and we can help your restaurant or bar too.
Focus on your customers, and leave the rest to us.
