A Greener Choice For Waste & Recycling
As innovators in recycling, First Mile enables businesses to improve their corporate sustainability by increasing recycling rates and minimising waste. With a zero-to-landfill policy, a fleet of ultra-low emission vehicles and a recycling rate of 60% (the average in London is 30%), we are the smarter, greener choice for businesses.
First Mile offer over 20 different types of recycling services which include paper, confidential shredding, cardboard, plastic, glass, food, coffee, stationery and electrical items. We pride ourselves on sustainable, closed-loop recycling solutions where possible, with anything that can’t be recycled turned into green energy.
For confidential documents, our secure bins are collected by DPS-checked operatives, shredded within 24 hours at our award-winning BS EN15713-accredited secure destruction facility, and turned back into recycled office paper which can be purchased from our shop. Our vehicles are GPS-tracked and CCTV monitored to ensure secure handling and destruction of confidential data to meet GDPR regulations.
First Mile service 25,000 businesses and in 2018 recycled over 60,000 tonnes of materials. Operating 365 days a year, with 24/7 customer service, we provide a hassle-free service that will help save your business money.
