Once paper breaks down in landfill sites it gives off methane gas, which is 21% more harmful to the atmosphere than carbon dioxide and is a major contributor to global warming. It’s a priority of ours to collect, grade and recycle as much scrap paper as possible.

All this helps to reduce your carbon footprint, while carefully planned routes mean that our collections are as fuel efficient as possible, minimising ours.

Our friendly and hassle-free recycling service couldn’t be simpler. We’ll conduct an initial assessment of your premises and help train your staff to segregate the correct waste streams. This can bring down your costs and price paid.

We’ll also provide the disposal equipment which best suits your needs from our extensive range of containers. These include basic refuse sacks, wheelie bins and lockable skips. We also have baling and compaction machines for manufacturers and heavier users.

All the waste paper then enters a sustainable ‘closed loop’ recycling system. This converts it into anything from newspapers and toilet roll tubes, to loft insulation and even some types of road surfacing.

We guarantee that none of your waste goes to waste with Fresh Start.

From post-it notes to sensitive materials, we collect, recycle and safely dispose of paper waste directly from businesses in Greater Manchester, Lancashire, Cheshire and Merseyside.
