At Cawleys our business is your rubbish. As a full-service waste and resource management organisation, we provide a complete range of reliable and cost-effective solutions.
As well as organising the collection and safe disposal of your waste, we are a driving force for innovation in waste reduction, reuse and recycling.
With facilities in Luton, Wellingborough and Milton Keynes we serve a wide range of businesses across Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire and Northamptonshire, as well as North and East London and regional hubs across the UK.
Whether your business needs to dispose of food waste, plastics, coffee grounds, hazardous materials, lithium batteries or any other type of waste, we can help. From the most straightforward weekly lifts to national multi-site collections, we offer all the equipment you might need including skips, wheeled bins (eurocarts), bulk rollon skips, hazardous drums, baled recyclate and much more.
At Cawleys we don’t just advise our clients on how to improve their green credentials, we live and breathe the values we promote. Our cardboard office is just one example of how we have adopted an environmentally sustainable approach within our own business.
With every desk in our recycled office constructed entirely of recycled cardboard, we are living proof that any business can make better use of reclaimed waste products. The desks are not only environmentally friendly, they are also extremely robust and completely practical to use. They won’t go soggy if you spill your coffee, they have a wipe clean laminate surface, and they’re not weak or wobbly – the table can hold support over 1,700 kg in weight but weighs only 15 kg itself.
Along with our recycled furniture we naturally separate our own office waste using different vessels for different waste streams and recycle our office equipment and products which contribute to the circular economy.
If you wish to follow our lead there are a number of simple steps you can take such as using some of the following in your regular office activity:
- Rechargeable batteries
- Paper made from recycled fibres and pulp
- Pens and pencils made with recycled content
- Cardboard furniture
- Window blinds or curtains made with recycled content
- LED lighting
- Hard wearing carpets made with recycled content
