Retail

Our fully integrated recycling and waste management service is designed to meet the unique needs facing the modern day retail company.

Recycling Solutions for Retail

We have more than 40 years’ experience driving forward recycling, working with some of the biggest retailers in Europe including Tesco, IKEA and ALDI. Our retail waste solutions allow these brands to focus on their business while meeting their corporate and social responsibilities).

We are part of the DS Smith group which is a leading manufacturer of packaging in Europe. The cardboard we collect is recycled and turned into new cardboard boxes to be used in our packaging division, creating a real closed-loop recycling solution for our customers.

That's why many high profile retail brands chose to work with us.

A greener environmental footprint for retailers

At DS Smith we understand the unique pressures facing retail companies. We know that large retailers need transparent recycling practices to enhance trust among customers.

Unlike other providers we don't invest in landfill as we’re perpetually devoted to recycling 100% of the waste you send us. With your help, we can turn this into something useful once more.

We do this in four simple steps:

1. Benchmarking

We start by assessing your waste management activities through a Materials Recycling Audit. This benchmarks your organisation's performance against best practice in landfill diversion and environmental compliance.

2. Implementing

The audit forms part of our agreed implementation plan. This is used to outline the solution to all your recycling and waste management needs and how your goals can be achieved. Supporting activities such as equipment sourcing, health and safety training, and staff process induction are all part of the service.

3. Servicing

DS Smith will then effectively coordinate all your recycling and waste management activities, including handling the changeover of contractors and any help desk support. Find out how we go above and beyond to help you meet your recycling targets. Please visit our caste studies, to see how we have helped Tesco and Aldi.

4. Performance

Key Performance Indicators are essential for measuring cost savings and environmental performance. What's more, it makes it easier to realise value-added opportunities. With systems designed to allow intuitive access to management information, you can rely on an insight-driven quality service.

Our no obligation Materials Recycling Audit will ensure you get the appropriate collection and the equipment to match.
