Where It All Goes

EMERGE Recycling has selected all the reprocessors we send materials to on the grounds that they practice authentic recycling and reuse. We audit them to check their licences and accreditations annually, in line with our ISO9001 accreditation standards.

Having consistently innovated for nearly 25 years, in pursuit of the highest standards in material recycling, with the aim of reducing our own and our customers environmental impact, we are always on the look out for new partners. Contact Gareth on 0161 223 8200 for more info.
