The central ethos of our company is all about recycling. Factors such as legislation, commercial pressures and public perception have forced all producers of waste industrial, commercial and domestic – to rethink their disposal routes and as a result, a new culture of “Reduce – Reuse – Recycle – Refuse” has pervaded throughout the country.
While we are predominantly a paper recycling company, we understand that all of our customers don’t just produce paper for recycling – other waste streams exist such as plastic, metals, wood and despite best attempts, there will always be an element of waste materials that simply cannot be recycled by conventional methods. With this in mind, our trained recycling specialists look to perform comprehensive waste audit services whose aim, is to maximise the volume and types of waste materials generated by your business for recycling.
We carefully examine the various types of waste materials you generate, their volumes, how they are handled internally, how they are contained / packaged, how they are collected and finally, how they are disposed of. Once we consider all of these factors, we will provide you a comprehensive audit report, which will analyse your current process and provide recommendations as to how to improve your entire waste and recycling strategy. Highlander will always recycle any paper and plastics directly through our modern recycling facility in Glasgow and in the case of other waste materials, we will utilise the service of approved partners – in essence, we will provide you with a “one stop shop” solution, while concentrating our efforts on our core business and area of expertise – recovered paper recycling. Other companies try and provide all waste services in house and while this may be effective, we believe that being masters of our trade, rather than jacks of several trades, is in the best interests of our customers in both the short and long term. Highlander have long established relationships with paper mills all over the world who consume a wide range of recovered paper grades, something that conventional waste management companies simply cannot rival.
