Recycling and waste management for the 21st century
Established over 25 years ago, EMS stand at the forefront of the recycling industry. We have been providing a high-quality recycling service for both domestic and commercial needs that has constantly used the latest technology in an ever improving sector. Keeping up-to-date with all advances in waste management and recycling, we are determined to remain a trusted and reliable company, renowned for our cutting edge techniques.
Our facility reflects that ideology, with ultra-modern facilities to improve every aspect of the recycling process. We use advanced screening processes to ensure we recover and recycle the maximum amount possible from the waste we collect. Currently, we are pushing incredible targets, with over 90% of both commercial and domestic waste being recycled to ultimately turn into high-value products – consequently, less than one tenth of all waste which passes through our hands ends up in landfill and we are constantly working on improving that figure.
Utilising high-powered magnets, size sorting and other advanced procedures, our state of the art machinery can separate and sort waste by both material and physical dimensions in order to maximise recycling potential.
Collect, Sort and Recycle!
At EMS, we like to work closely with our clients and customers to ensure that waste is cleanly and carefully separated into recyclable materials and non-recyclables at the source, improving the process to maintain quality and avoid any contamination that detracts from the value of the recycled resources. This preparatory step is key in ensuring that we produce the finest materials by the end of the process.
The environment is, of course, a key concern for all of us and is something we focus on in the recycling industry. We are committed to maximising recycling rates for our customers and, by doing so, keep the impact on the environment to a minimum. Our waste management programme is designed to be the most environmentally friendly and efficient process it can be.
Our enthusiastic and modern approach offers a complete service recycling programme that will ensure your company meets every environmental and ecological standard required by regulations.
We can provide the tools to deal with your waste requirements no matter the size – from a small domestic house clearance to regularly produced high-volume commercial waste.
