Recycling is an ever increasing issue for individuals and organisations, with the need to minimise waste, reduce costs & increase environmental awareness.

Sonoco Recycling is a secure, reliable, innovative partner. We’re a partner you can trust.

A Century of Recycling

Here at Sonoco Recycling we’ve spent the last 100 years collecting and reprocessing waste paper and cardboard, converting it into useful paperboard products.

From our Halifax based paper mill, we aim to provide a tailored waste management service built around your needs; whether you need small collections using our local wheelie bin collection service, office recycling, larger quantities of loose or baled materials collecting from one site or multiple sites.

We offer recycling services for cardboard, paper and plastics but can also offer Sonoco Sustainability Solutions for total waste management of all your waste. The majority of the cardboard and paper collected and delivered is sourced as raw material for our mills throughout Europe.


Sonoco Recycling can create an individual, integrated recycling solution for your company – from small offices or retail units to large organisations. To find out how we could reduce your costs and increase your recycling rates, or for more information regarding our equipment and services, visit Sonoco UK Recycling or  contact us using the details below.
