Printwaste launches home collection service

Tom Robins makes a home collection

Cheltenham-based Printwaste has introduced a home collection service to help the local community while recycling centres and tips are closed and council garden waste collections suspended or limited.

Printwaste will be collecting garden waste, confidential documents for shredding and recycling in Cheltenham, Gloucester and Tewkesbury.

And 10 per cent of all sales from the service will be donated to the Cheltenham and Gloucester Hospitals Charity.

Managing director Don Robins, who founded the family business in 1983, said: "We are really pleased to be offering this service to the community at this difficult time."

The company, which employs around 90 people, normally collects from businesses and organisations, but has decided to introduce the offer locally after receiving a number of enquiries.

Mr Robins said: "Because we are key workers and some of our big customers are food manufacturers, councils and the NHS, we are very much open and working.

"Many people are using this time to have clear outs, do more DIY and gardening but with nowhere to put the waste once they've finished.

"We have been looking for a way to support the local community during this period, and this felt like a good way to help."

He continued: "As a company, we are well equipped to deal with the lockdown restrictions. All of our staff are following government guidelines, adhering to social distancing requirements and taking the appropriate precautions at all times, putting the safety of themselves and our customers first.

"We are experts in confidential document shredding and have the top accreditations, equipment and knowledge to destroy data safely and securely."

"When dealing with general waste and recycling, we will always look for solutions that work best for both our customers and for the planet."

Printwaste's new home service will collect:

  • Garden waste
  • Confidential document shredding
  • Old technology, such as computers and hard drives
  • Recyclable items from clear outs

To use the service, call Printwaste on 01242 588600 (press 1) or email info@printwaste.co.uk.  You will be asked for a photo, given a quote, payment is taken prior to collection and a collection time is provided.
