Get Recycling

July 2015
Save money and the environment with our new recycling scheme.

Stratford Original has partnered with First Mile to bring your business a subsidised Waste&Recycling service. It's simple, cost-efficient and green. Rates start as low as 33p per 5kg bag of Mixed Recycling. For many businesses, this category covers up to 90% of their waste - it includes paper, glass, all plastic, and metal tins and cans.

Collections can be arranged daily. First Mile can also safely recycle and dispose of a whole range of different types of waste, with very competitive rates and special discounts for BID members. Confidential Paper Shredding and Waste Electric and Electronic goods collections are also subsidised by 2/3 under the Stratford Original deal.

The service is flexible and you can call First Mile on 0800 612 9894 or email to discuss your specific requirements. You do not need to enter into any contract, the service is based on a simple pay-as-you-go model.

Sample prices:

  • Mixed recycling: £0.33 per 5kg sack/sticker*
  • Electrical and electronic recycling: £6.70 per 25kg*
  • Confidential shredding: £1.70 per 25kg sack*

*Each business is entitled to a yearly allocation of subsidised services. All prices exclusive of VAT.
