An Innovative Waste Management Company
Utilising London’s Canal and River network to provide unique, eco-friendly solutions for commercial businesses to improve their impact on the environment
iRecycle are strong supporters of Social Enterprise, working at the heart of positive change; continuously striving to do the right thing and seek environmentally friendly methods to protect our planet.
Founded in 2018 by Elliot Lancaster to solve the Capital’s crisis of over congested roads and pollution by going back to the past to change the future.
Where logistically possible we use our alternative method to transport our clients commercial waste via London’s Canal and River network and thereby divert traffic off London’s roads, reducing air pollution and decreasing our client’s carbon footprint in the Capital.
The waterways offer a huge opportunity for our clients to not only remove waste but to also bring in office supplies & equipment and we are proud to upartner with Powerday; the market-leading waste management and recycling facility, who ensure that all of our clients manage their resources sustainably, maximise recycling and recovery of material, delivering 100% diversion from landfill.
Our aim by the end of December 2021 is to provide logistics to ensure up to 80% of our client waste is being moved by barge and benefitting from our Waste by Water services
Our services are designed to think outside of the conventional box, disrupt the normal methods and above all, provide a bespoke solution enabling companies to rethink their current waste strategy and implement a more sustainable approach.
iRecycle has supported ending homelessness from its inception. Our ideology is to benefit the environment from within the company, as well as outside through the specialist services we provide to our clients.
We are enormously proud to enable homeless candidates back into work, providing employment, stability and support to them as they return to independent living. Check out our interview below with Marion, our first full-time employee and is also one of our R&W Drivers.
