Our Philosophy

We are dedicated to making recycling a viable economic business alternative to landfill. At TRP, we strongly believe in this philosophy and are driving up standards within the UK recycling infrastructure.

The principle activity of The Recycling People is to provide a recycling and waste management solution to customers that minimises their costs whilst maximising levels of recycling. See our prices. Each customer is fully assessed to determine the most efficient waste strategy for their individual requirements.

The Recycling People’s fundamental approach to waste management is to minimise customers’ disposal costs by reducing the amount of waste going to landfill. Householders produce almost 30 million tonnes of waste on average each year. Click here to read more.

    - Mr Simmons, Bagshot
  • What our clients say

    Turned up on time, friendly and pleasant. Very good advice on size of load. Got on with the job quickly. Easier than using a skip. They load it up and take it away so it isn’t lying around in the street.

    - Chris L, Reigate
  • What our clients say

    Had recently done refurbishments and the rubbish was piled high outside. I called the company and they came and gave the quote the same day. I accepted the quote and the men started straight away. The rubbish was cleared within 30 minutes and nothing was left. I would highly recommend and definitely use again.

    - Martin, Woking
  • What our clients say

    They arrived the same day. The guys were polite, courteous and meticulous. When finding items of possible value, they asked each time before loading. Swept up and tidied. Fantastic value. Skip companies should be very worried. Much cheaper than any skip, Builders take note!!!! They even told me the waste station they would be using so I could track the load for peace of mind.
