Dawn pops in to visit Green Recycling.

Dawn visit

Dawn popped into see us here at Green Recycling, having returned from completing her amazing challenge of rowing solo across the Atlantic.

We heard all about her personal challenges and experiences and some fantastic tales of her time at sea.

She was so astonished by the waste plastic she came across throughout her journey, that she remains firmly committed to the cause of raising awareness and trying to get people to make small changes in their use of single use plastics.

Well done Dawn - you are incredible.

Its easy to be green!

Heart radio


If you are a regular listener of Heart radio, you may have already caught our new radio jingle...... it is catchy!


We have embarked on this radio advertising campaign throughout the day and the sponsorship of the local weather, with the intention of raising our brand awareness in the local business community.


The message is that no matter what company you work for, you CAN recycle your business waste, conveniently and cost effectively with Green Recycling.


Listen to the jingle here and see our YouTube video:

Keep going Dawn, it’s all down hill from here!!

Dawns route merge

Here at Green Recycling, we are all tracking Dawn’s progress and fanatically reading her blog which is a wonderful way to record this amazing and brave adventure. In the last week she has triumphantly crossed the halfway point on her solo row across the Atlantic.

She’s had highs, she’s had lows. She’s had 20ft waves, rain, thunder, wind pushing her in the wrong direction and then she’s welcomed some sunshine and helpful turning directional winds.

So admirably positive, Dawn reports on the awesome creatures she’s spotted, from the tropical birds, to the brightly coloured fish, to the delightful company of the dolphins and the turtles swimming along side her. Oh and not forgetting the……SHARK!!

Her determined tone takes a more dispirited edge when she writes about the daily record of plastic pollution that she is now witnessing, first hand in the middle of the ocean.

“Today I saw a blue bottle screw top. I have logged the positions, I am just putting them in my blog to remind me what the items were.

This campaign is aimed at highlighting the problem of plastic pollution in our oceans. I am simply astounded that slap bang in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean there is clear evidence of the sheer scale of the problem. Not one corner of our planet is safe from the damage us humans are doing to it.

Well done Dawn we are incredibly proud of you and delighted to be sponsoring your momentous campaign for this essential cause.

My first Blog!

02 October 2019   

Hi My name is Rob Smith.

I am the MD of Green Recycling.

Driving dustcarts, delivering skips, dealing bins and trading waste - is in my blood. My grandfather was in the rubbish business back in 1947 and he went on to start up our first family firm. From 1947 and a 4 wheel Bedford tipper to 2019 a lot has changed, but a lot is still the same. We collect and dispose of other people's waste.

Setting up Green Recycling in 2001 was a proud and momentous time. My mum and dad came to work with me (as they still do today), but its not just a Smith family run business, I like to think that all of our team from the drivers to the office and management team to the guys and girls on the picking line -  all feel part of our ever growing Green Recycling family.

I wanted to create a service that focused on getting business waste out of the landfill and into the recycling system. Back then, being green was innovative and fairly idealistic. But I knew with my lifelong experience, growing up in the waste management world along with my entrepreneurial itch to run a successful business, that somehow, I could set up to make a profit and be as forward thinking and environmentally conscious as possible.

We were recently interviewed by the Guardian who did a very insightful article on what actually happens to your waste and investigates the complex idiosyncrasies of the recycling trade, the laws, procedures, restrictions and markets. Like any business our first concern is to make enough money to keep going, to pay our staff and suppliers, cover our overheads and maintenance bills and to keep up with safety standards. Our values and concerns for the environment are clearly part of our vision statement and as a result its something we continually strive for and invest in.

I thought that I could help to de mystify the world of waste by starting this blog - and just have a corner of our website to vent my ramblings really, I hope you find it interesting, I'd be happy to get your opinions and comments back.

Here are a few subjects I'll be covering in my blog over the next few months:

Card and paper prices falling hard
Plastic bottles price on the rise
Metal down 35%
Driver safety on third party sites
Planning process for future development..

Friendly family run
business, always here to help
