  3. About Us

Our journey has been exciting, interesting, sometimes a challenge, we have had fun and learnt a lot!

We have been lucky enough to meet and work with some great people; great businesses and our customers have not only helped us to grow but helped us to continually innovate in order to meet their needs. Without them, we would not be who we are and we would like to thank you very much for sharing our journey with us.

We are proud of who we have become, we have got a great team and we do our very best to not only support our industry but to support initiatives that are helping find solutions to recycling problems.

This journey has meant that we are in a sector where greater change is required to help protect our world. We do not take this responsibility lightly. And thus our aim is to make a difference one person, one business at a time and by so doing we will do out bit to help our customers protect our world today and for tomorrow.

Being part of the Resource Revolution

There is no doubt The Resource Revolution is upon us. We must protect every possible resource we have and we need to think very carefully, intelligently and imaginatively about how we use that resource and then how we recycle that resource to maximise its value. All the time we are looking for innovative partners to help us to do this.

Lots of experience

With over 36 years of experience under our belt, we really do understand recycling, confidential shredding, compliance and waste management. Since 1983, we’ve gone from collecting printers’ waste in Gloucester to providing a whole range of recycling and shredding solutions to 1000’s of customers. Our HQ is now in Cheltenham, also the home of our High Security Confidential Shredding Facility.

The Next Generation

We are a family business and the next generation is now within the business. This generation, throughout the world, will be the people that have to solve the problems created by mass consumerism and the throw away society.

Looking forward

So, we look to a positive future at Printwaste, where our intention is to continue to innovate, continue to help change perception, continue to build long term working partnerships with our customers and do what we can to help our planet for the future generations.

Our Values are important to us:

We stand up for what we believe in and do our very best to make a difference
