WASTE COLLECTION AND RECYCLING
We are fully licensed by the Environment Agency and appreciate our environmental responsibilities and therefore aim to reuse or recycle as much as we possibly can to divert it from landfill sites.
A large proportion of the waste produced by businesses in the UK is cardboard waste; from boxes for storage, to packages for delivery and lunch packaging, it really is everywhere.
Our recycling services turn your waste cardboard into new packaging and products, ensuring the material gets more than one use.
Cookham Waste & Recycling can arrange cardboard collection for your business at a time that’s convenient for you. This is then transported back to our recycling facility where it is bulked and baled. The bales are then sent onwards to one of our trusted partners to be reprocessed, eliminating the need for more cardboard to be unnecessarily manufactured.
Our mission is to divert as much waste as possible away from landfill and recycling plastics is one way to help minimise landfill waste.
Electrical equipment often ends up in landfill, where it can potentially cause damage to the environment. This is because much of it contains chemicals, which leak into the soil and nearby waterways, threatening humans and wildlife alike.
Cookham Waste & Recycling offers a fully compliant service to collect and dispose of electrical and electronic waste (WEEE) that’s simple and reliable.
BUSINESS AND HOUSEHOLD WASTE
Disposing of business and household waste can sometimes be a challenge but we can make this a totally hassle free process.
We collect furniture for disposal from offices, schools, hotels, landlords and the private sector.
Used desks, office chairs, wardrobes and beds are just some of the kinds of the furniture we dispose of on a daily basis. Our team can help with loading or even clear you garage, house or office of unwanted items leaving the place clean and tidy just as you would expect it.
We dispose of furniture with environmental responsibility and where possible, donate to our local charity partners where it is repurposed for those in need.
Whether its a few bags of green waste or an entire garden clearance, a keen gardener, or a professional landscaping company - we can collect and recycle it. For smaller quantites of green waste such as leaves, our bins are a convenient way to collate the waste but we can of course, collect loose bulk green waste too. We'll make sure everything is recycled where possible, with nothing going to landfill.
MIXED STREAM RECYCLING
Our mixed recycling collection service means you can put paper, cardboard, cans and plastic bottles together in the same container – a convenient and easy way for your business to recycle more.
Mixed recyclables are then sorted, before being baled and sent on to be made into new products.
SINGLE STREAM RECYCLING
As well as mixed recyclables, we collect recycling in single streams. This is useful when you produce a large volume of a single type of material – such as paper, cardboard, metal, glass, plastic and wood – and can place it in dedicated containers for that material type.
Collection of household appliances is priced by item for collection only, with the exception of refrigerators. We have to employ an F-Gas registered specialist to de-gas every refrigerator with specialist equipment and expert knowledge. There is a cost to this unfortunately, which is why fridges appear disproportionately expensive to dispose of. View our price list here
Batteries are part of our everyday life; used both at home and at work they are a familiar product, but how much do we know about them? Some batteries contain toxic metals such as cadmium and mercury, lead and lithium, which become hazardous waste and pose threats to health and the environment if improperly disposed. We collect and re-use or recycle your unwanted household batteries.
We offer a mixed glass, bottle and jar collection service to businesses in Cookham and the surrounding areas.
We can collect any coloured bottles or jars on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis. We will provide you with your preferred sized wheelie bin (240litre or 660litre) to suit your needs.
TONERS AND INK CARTRIDGES
As part of our waste management services, we can provide specialised collections for waste printer toner cartridges. This helps keep your business’ printing sustainable, as undamaged toners can be reused, and damaged cartridges being recycled.
