The Pledge: RECYCLE


Recycling. It’s a no brainer.

Unless you’re an absolute eco-hero minimalist champion, after all your efforts to reduce, reuse and refuse you will inevitably be left with some waste.

As a nation, we’re becoming more aware that when we throw our waste away, it doesn’t magically disappear. We know it’s important to keep materials in the loop… but are you recycling the right items in the right place? Putting the wrong items in the recycling bin can spoil whole batches of waste items that would otherwise be perfect for recycling.

Your actions really do matter. If we all get into the habit of recycling as much of our waste as possible, it will add up and together we will make a positive difference.

Make the pledge to recycle – and we'll send you tips to help you along the way.


We can all make a big impact with small easy actions

WHY recycle?

Fueled by a growing population that continues to consume materials at an alarming rate, the challenges our planet is facing is no secret. And each time a new product is made, we need to extract new resources from the earth. Unless, of course, it's made from recycled materials.

Landfill taxes are on the rise, recycling your waste at home is a simple way to help your council save money for the things that really need it. Running an active recycling programme in your workplace will not only help to reduce your impact on the environment, it can save your business money too.

Infinity Recycling

Recycling is great, but here at Cawleys we are constantly looking for ways to make it even better.

Our Infinity programme does just that. By educating business and individuals about the benefits of segregating their recyclable waste, we can work together to actively increase recycling success rates and make a positive impact on your bottom line and the environment.

By focusing on the circular economy and recognising the value in resources that can be reused and recycled, we can help your business reduce the cost of waste disposal and explore opportunities that arise from the global commodity market.

How it works

Unlike traditional waste collection methods where everything goes in one bag, our Infinity scheme allows you to segregate your waste into separate containers, keeping it cleaner and dryer, making it easier to recycle. From coffee cup consoles and coffee caddies to plastic and paper bins, we offer a wide range of speciality bins as part of our infinity scheme.

Segregating waste in this way can make a real difference to your business’s bottom line.

To take advantage of the Infinity programme, simply estimate the volume of waste you produce, choose which streams you want to segregate and use the correct colour bags for your waste. We will issue you with a special drop-sided bin to store these bags until we collect them.
