Ellgia Recycling uses innovative technology to achieve significant growth

Ellgia Recycling, a leading provider of bespoke commercial waste management solutions in the East of England, has seen significant growth in turnover, from 0 – £18 million, in just three years since launch.


At the heart of its success is the development of bespoke solutions that meet the needs of each of its customers, whether they are a very small business or large enterprise with operations in the East of England.  Its customers in and around Cambridge include Cambridge University Press, Babraham Research Campus and CamOuse Financial Services.

With a commitment to recycling and keeping materials away from landfill, Ellgia Recycling enables its customers to manage waste effectively and saves businesses huge sums of money every year. The cost of sending waste to landfill is increasing every year, as are the restrictions on what can be sent. In addition, penalties can be imposed on businesses that don’t handle waste appropriately or if the right paperwork is not complete before materials leave their premises.

Ellgia Recycling makes waste management simple and cost-effective for its customers. It operates an innovative ‘pay-by-weight’ solution, using the latest container weighing and identification technology to ensure that customers only pay for what they dispose of. It accurately records information including: waste type and weight; location details; date and time; container size and type. Customers can then access Ellgia Recycling’s purpose-built innovative web portal at any time of day or night, from anywhere in the world, to help monitor and control their waste. The system can provide detailed reports as required, making compliance with environmental legislation simple and cost-effective.



Sales director at Ellgia Recycling, said: “It’s been an incredible three years for us and our growth reflects the increasing need for smart waste management solutions. Each business has different requirements and we work with everyone from hospitals and major event venues to printers and manufacturers, creating bespoke solutions that are efficient, cost-effective and environmentally friendly. We have a raft of new solutions in development and are looking forward to further improving the environmental credentials of businesses across the East of England and beyond in the coming months and years.”
