Our ethics

We are passionate about making new uses of your unwanted items and our aim is to reuse or recycle 80% of our collections.
Where there is no other viable alternative then we will reluctantly ensure that the items are disposed of safely, responsibly and legally.
Fly-tipping is illegal and is bad for the environment, it can also be a health hazard. The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) estimates that clearing fly-tipped rubbish from the streets costs local councils £4 million a month. Bumbles Recycling will never dispose of your rubbish by fly-tipping. If you want to know more about the law or statistics for fly-tipping please click on the links below.
