What does Recorra mean?

Social impact

Social value is at the core of our business, both with our customers, internally and across the communities we serve. Beginning life as a Friends of the Earth project to prove the viability of source separated recycling, giving back has always been integral to the way we do business. For example, for every food collection, we donate a meal to a vulnerable person through our charity partner, FareShare. These actions have real impact. To date we have provided more than 225,000 meals and donated a more than £330,000 to our charity partners and continue to develop meaningful partnerships.

With our new name we look forward to this new chapter in the company’s journey. We are one company, with one new name delivering Real Recycling for all our customers.
