Wincanton’s recycling solutions help our customers to reduce their environmental impact, by reusing, recycling and recovering as much waste product as possible. We provide our customers with a range of approved and regulated services for the treatment of a large variety of waste streams. We deliver exceptional service levels, while ensuring that material transportation costs, often the most expensive element of recycling, are kept to a minimum by using the existing supply chain provision.


Recycling waste

Wincanton provides waste management services for many of our customers across all market sectors, minimising the quantity of waste sent to landfill and generally reducing the environmental impact of our storage and distribution services. We actively provide recycling and waste management services for:

  • cardboard
  • expanded polystyrene
  • food waste
  • metal
  • mattresses
  • plastics
  • paper
  • pallets
  • wood waste


Asset recovery

With more goods being manufactured and produced in the Far East, it is becoming increasingly difficult to return products to the manufacturer. As a solution to this problem, Wincanton has formed a joint venture with the US reverse logistics specialists Genco, to offer retailers and manufacturers an asset recovery solution.

Through this partnership, Wincanton is able to sell on unwanted products, such as obsolete stock, unwanted stock, faulty returns, refurbished items and seconds.



We constantly look to improve our environmental performance and drive sustainability in our solutions.
