Plastic recycling

In 2015 the government introduced new legislation for the collection, transport, recovery, and disposal of waste. This requires all collection authorities to separate recyclates, with the legislation aiming to help the UK achieve a higher level of plastic recycling.


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.
