FirstMile - Go zero waste with RecycleBox

| Global themes | PETnology Staff Writer

UK based company First Mile has launched RecycleBox, a low-cost courier service that can be filled with hard-to-recycle products or items that that are not traditionally recycled through household or commercial waste services.

The company claims to accept a wide range of products such as coffee cups, wipe packaging, single use plastics, drink cartons etc. except liquids, foods and hazardous materials.

According to FirstMile their process follows three steps:

  1. Fill preowned/ordered box with chosen category of products
  2. Book collection online, print out and stick label on top
  3. Content will be recycled with help of specialist processing partners

First Mile founder and CEO, Bruce Bratley: “With the amount of different packaging materials being invented, it’s becoming even more complicated to recycle. We created RecycleBox in response to the increasing appetite among consumers and businesses to become zero-waste, and to be able to recycle everything they possibly can.''

The firm states that during the Covid-19 outbreak their service will run as normal and is currently offering all boxes with a 20% discount.
