Agricultural businesses to be offered free recycling waste collections

Each year, Agricultural businesses let tonnes of glass go to waste instead of recycling – but an innovative new service is set to change the landscape of recycling in the area.

Recycling provider,, is introducing a free glass waste collection service for Agricultural businesses in the UK, removing both the administrative and financial burdens, which are a barrier for businesses who are reluctant or unable to recycle.

Do you have a business which is struggling to meet its targets for sustainability – or would simply just like to become more environmentally friendly? This service is a simple way to improve your green credentials and can also cut down on costs.

Spaces on the innovative scheme are limited, and anticipates high demand, as there are over 200,000 Agricultural businesses in the UK, collectively producing tonnes of waste each year, which isn’t recycled but should be.

Mark Hall communications director said: “We’ve made is very simple for charities to sign up – to find out if you’re eligible, it’s as simple as filling in a form and a representative will be in touch. For those just wanting a free glass collection rather than a full collection service, it’s first-come, first-served – but businesses will be offered a discounted rate until the free service is available.”

The scheme aims to reduce the amount of glass waste, which makes it to landfill, as the country faces ever-increasing waste removal demands – but it also aims to encourage the local community’s in the UK to think more carefully about their environment.

“We’re removing those barriers to offer businesses in the UK the opportunity to have free recycling collections – a huge boon for businesses with lots of recycling, and a simple way to help a business ‘go green’. We hope that this will push recycling rates in the area up dramatically and make England a shining example of recycling excellence.”

“Not only will this have a cumulative positive impact on the environment – it will also save eligible companies thousands of pounds a year.”
