Nationwide Solutions for Utilities Waste and Disposal

Recycling Lives’ utilities waste solutions offer much more than bins and compacters for utilities waste disposal. We offer total waste management solutions tailor-made to your business, allowing you to consolidate and manage any and all waste across multiple facilities with just one supplier.

Working with blue-chip utilities companies, we develop utilities waste management plans to improve the efficiency of waste disposal on utilities sites. Our WAMITAB accredited consultants and ITSSAR accredited trainers are utilities waste experts who work together to deliver compliant solutions and manage multiple waste streams in the most efficient ways possible.

We also minimise the environmental impact of your waste by providing closed loop solutions, collecting by-products from your facilities and recycling them so that they can be re-used.
