Smarter Recycling: Waste Audits

Our area-wide Smarter Recycling scheme provides preferential waste and recycling collection rates, helping local businesses to improve their green credentials and sustainability while at the same time addressing the issue of air quality in the area by reducing the number of waste collection vehicles on the street. Smarter Recycling has two scheme partners – First Mile and Recorra – both offering over 30 different recycling streams, with solutions for even the harder to recycle items and further reducing your business’ impact on the environment.  

Businesses that are signed up to Smarter Recycling can access a free waste audit through either of our partners, to assess the waste your business produces, what is recycled and what is thrown away. You then receive a useful report with details and recommendations on how to cut waste and improve your recycling rates.  

This is just one of the many benefits of being part of the scheme. In addition to being able to recycle a variety of items, businesses are also able to access smart reporting tools through an online portal including compliance documentation, monthly reports and training materials to help increase their recycling rates.  

Visit our Smarter Recycling page for more information on the scheme and how to get in touch with First Mile or Recorra to sign up.

We would love to hear about your recycling and sustainability successes and to share these with fellow businesses so please do get in touch with us here!
