We work with Paper Round,  part of the BPR Group, one of London’s leading recycling and waste management businesses. Some of their clients achieve an average recycling rate of 65%, with best cases of 95%. Here at PW we need to move towards a greater percentage of recycling as both the financial and environmental costs continue to rise.

We now have both our green Recycling bins and our Grey/Black general waste collected 3 times a week on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, usually during the morning.

Glass bottle collection Food Waste Only  and Coffee ground bins are collected on demand ,

The food is taken to Biogen where combined with anaerobic digestion is converted into biogas and liquid bio fertiliser producing renewable electricity and helping to grow crops.

Paper Round are far more reliable with their collection times so there is never a need to put bin sacks on the ground in the bin area, please tell your cleaners!

Paper Round’s unique waste management collection service ensures that everything of value is reclaimed. They achieve this by taking the waste to a modern Energy from Waste plant where it is used to generate electricity. This ensures that nothing is sent to landfill, conserves resources and reduces CO2 emissions.

The Environment

Paper Round’s waste service helps us go beyond recycling and reduce our environmental impact further. Landfill is harmful to the environment and an unsustainable waste disposal method. Their general waste service converts your waste into electricity, improves your environmental performance and helps curb climate change.

Maximised diversion from landfill

Diverting non-recyclable materials from landfill is in line with the WRAP’s waste hierarchy and offers environmental and financial benefits by avoiding rising landfill tax costs which you pay on your service charges.
