The most common materials that we recycle are listed below but we regularly review this list as our clients look for ways to increase their recycling rates. 

Our separate collection service ensures that the recycling we collect from our clients is of a high quality. 

The quality of our material means that it’s highly valued by UK reprocessors. Using UK reprocessors means that Changeworks Recycling and our clients are supporting the local and Circular economy.
