Bross Bagels

Earlier this year, Leith was voted one of the most desirable neighbourhoods to live in the UK. It’s unsurprising then that Bross Bagels, which started in Portobello, decided to open its second shop on Leith Walk earlier this year. Larah Bross, owner and manager, takes pride in being part of the Leith community aiming to bring positive changes to the area. Since opening, Bross Bagels has been extremely popular and the company is now expanding its premises on Leith Walk to make more use of the space. Given its popularity, Larah needed to find a regular and reliable waste collection and recycling partner. Speaking of her need, Larah said:

“The environment is super important to everyone at Bross Bagels. We try to use as little plastic as possible, encourage the use of reusable cups, and we recycle everything. “Therefore, I needed to find a waste management provider who could cater to our requirements and ensure the waste we produce as a business is having the least possible impact on the planet.”

After starting her search for a regular and reliable waste management provider, Larah met with Changeworks Recycling’s business development manager for Edinburgh North, Ailsa. Ailsa visited the shop to audit Bross Bagels’ recycling process and provided recommendations as to how to ensure a smooth service for such a busy shop. Larah continued:

“We use local suppliers wherever possible including everything from pickles to meat so as a local waste management provider, Changeworks Recycling was the perfect choice.” “Working with Changeworks Recycling is great. Thy are so reliable and I have had no problems whatsoever with the service. The drivers are always on time and everyone at the company is so friendly and helpful. This makes a big change from having to spend ages on the phone chasing to get our waste collected. “The team is also always willing to provide us with additional information and helpful resources to ensure our recycling processes are as good as they can be. “Everyone at Bross Bagels feels rest assured knowing that any waste we produce is going to the best possible place and therefore having the least possible impact on the planet. Our staff feel positive and motivated about being part of this environmental movement and Changeworks Recycling is a big part of that.”
