Our business recycling service caters for all your office waste collection needs and offers the convenience of internal collection (where our staff come into your office to pick up waste). All organisations need to be absolutely certain that their confidential data, both personal and commercial, is securely disposed of. EMERGE Recycling can provide that assurance. We tailor our services to meet your specific requirements, collecting on either a regular or an ad hoc basis.

For the internal collection service, we can provide you with colour-coded bins for use within your workplace. Our team will then attend your premises on an agreed schedule to collect your source-separated materials from the bins. Materials EMERGE collects include: paper (confidential and non-conf), aluminium and steel drinks cans, paper, cardboard, glass, plastic bottles, food waste, and toner cartridges.

You will be allocated a dedicated member of our team, so that you have the assurance of dealing regularly with the same person who is familiar with your premises and security procedures. This bespoke personal service caters to your individual business needs, whether you require a simple paper collection, or need a wide range of materials to be removed from your offices.
