Cardboard recycling

Cardboard, most commonly used as packaging material, is heavy-duty paper, which can be easily recycled due its fibres being previously processed from trees. Cardboard recycling is just one element of good recycling practice. We can collect bales of cardboard from any business in the UK through our own fleet or with our partners. We can also help with smaller volumes of flattened containerised cardboard and provide collections to suit your needs.


Choose your Container Type

We offer waste collection in a variety of different container sizes to suit your needs.


Wheeled Bins

Our wheelie bins for hire are suitable for most office, school, commercial, retail or industrial sites.




Rear-end loaders

Rear-end loader containers are designed to stay at the customer’s premises and services can be scheduled or collected on demand, depending on the waste volumes produced.


Front-end loaders

Ellgia operates a front-end loader service that is the most modern and cost-effective solution for waste collection.




Roll-on-off Containers

Roll-on-off containers offer a service ideally suited to the movement of large volumes of all dry types of waste and bulky material.
