Introducing Recorra

We have come along way since Paper Round was conceived as a paper recycling project by Friends of the Earth in 1988.

With our recent acquisition of Reef Environmental Solutions we now service more than 5,500 businesses, just like you, in London and along the South Coast.

From November we will become one team with one new name - Recorra.

We go further to deliver Real Recycling

Innovation is in our blood. We now collect more than 35 different types of materials, giving them a useful second life.

Initiatives such as electric vehicle collections, staff engagement programmes and carbon reporting mean that the name Paper Round no longer describes what we actually do.

Positive change

Our new name allows us to innovate faster. In the coming months you will see a series of initiatives designed to improve your recycling outcomes.

Importantly though, our team and the values that drive us will not change. We are proud of our independence; it allows us to focus on Real Recycling.

To eliminate reputational risk we are transparent on where your materials go. All our materials are reprocessed in the UK and northern Europe. Our industry leading reporting also drives the continuous improvement process.

Circular economy solutions

Every part of our business has the circular economy in mind. We even create circular economy products, such as recycled printer paper, so you can buy back your own waste for a true closed loop solution.

Carbon reduction

We've made our own net zero plans and are the perfect partners to help with your own carbon reduction objectives.

Redefining waste management

From November we will officially become Recorra, but before this you will start to see our new name appearing in some materials.
