Hunter Boots

Hunter has partnered up with First Mile to provide a recycling solution for their Wellington Boots. Customers can post back their old boots for free to be recycled. Once collected by First Mile, these old boots are sent to our processing partners, where they are shredded and ground down before being repurposed into playground and horse arena surfacing, kickboxing bags and floor fillers.

Bulldog Skincare

First Mile is the official recycling partner for Bulldog, providing solutions for hard-to-recycle packaging. Skincare packaging products are made from plastics that need specialist treatment. First Mile provide a collection scheme and send plastics to a process called Microwave-assisted pyrolysis, where the plastic is turned back into oil which can then be refined to produce new plastic products

First Mile helps Piccolo recycle their new baby food pouch, which is made from 100% PP. Piccolo customers can use the pouch multi-pack packaging, which doubles up as the returns parcel for the used pouches. Once collected we send them for processing into new PP products. First Mile and Piccolo are also exploring the potential of creating food-grade recycled PP that could be used in new Piccolo food pouches in future.
