Does Your Paper Waste Represent a Problem or an Opportunity to Your Business?

If your day-to-day activities produce large volumes of commercial paper waste, you'll understand the importance of a recycling partner who will collect quickly, shred securely and offer a competitive rebate.

Ecogen has earned a reputation that is second-to-none among printers, direct mail houses, paper products manufacturers and newsprint factories as a reliable, efficient and proactive provider of commercial paper recycling services.  We'll collect your waste from any location nationwide, and transport it to our specialist paper recovery facility in Hampshire, where we shred and recycle 100% of the paper that we handle.

We have worked hard to gain Grade A status with the largest corrugated board and tissue paper mills in the world.  This, combined with our extensive transport network and efficient operation allows us to offer market-leading rebates for your waste, maximising your recycling revenue.

We Offer Paper Recycling For The Following Paper Grades:

Printers' Waste

Regardless of the volume of paper waste your printer generates, we have a solution to help.

For small to medium printers, dolavs are a popular choice as they can be positioned besides the presses and guillotines and lifted off for collection and disposal once full.

For larger printers, air extraction systems linked to paper compaction or baling equipment is often an idea solution to save space and reduce mess.

Whatever your volumes or operation, we will work with you to maximise your operating space, reduce mess and optimise collection and disposal arrangements. 

Confidential Document Shredding

The data protection obligations conferred by GDPR mean that the secure and confidential destruction of documents and any office paper waste that may contain personal data is more important than ever.

Our GDPR-compliant document destruction service will help you to comply with all current data protection legislation, whilst also offering a convenient, efficient way to rid your office of paper waste.  Our Document Destruction page can tell you more. 

Brochures, Leaflets, Marketing Materials and Magazines

Many large retail companies overprint marketing materials, magazines and catalogues, with those not distributed rendered obsolete once the next issue is produced.

Ecogen will collect, shred and recycle these materials, ensuring that old and potentially inaccurate or out-of-date issues cannot be distributed in error, whilst also reducing your carbon footprint and freeing up warehouse or office space. 

Paper Reels

It's not unusual for ex-stock paper lines (such as out of date wrapping paper) to require disposal and recycling.  We handle all grades of paper reels, including paper with specialist coatings such as ink, silicone and wax.  Whatever your requirement, we have a solution. 


Paperboard is typically used to produce folding cartons, set-up boxes and carded packaging.  We'll collect and recycle all types, including:

  • Container board - used in the production of corrugated fibreboard
  • Folding boxboard - made up of multiple layers of chemical and mechanical pulp
  • Solid bleached board - made from bleached chemical pulp, often with a mineral or synthetic pigment
  • White lined chipboard - usually made from layers of waste paper or recycled fibres, often with 2-3 layers of coating on top and 1 layer on the reverse
  • Binders board - paperboard used in bookbinding for making hardcovers

Fibreboard is also of interest to us, whether its printed, off-cut, redundant stock or over-runs.  Wherever possible, we will find an opportunity to re-use or recycle.
