Who is Recycle Drive

PAVING THE ROAD TO ZERO WASTE

Searching for balance in her life after her children were born, in 2008 Colette Erwee applied to work part time at a company that recycled Printer cartridges. With a background in Facility Management Colette was well aware of how big business worked – and she was stunned how few of them actually had a plan to recycle their waste

‘I realised 2 things’ said Colette ‘1, that I had found my real passion and the 2nd being that I could add a lot of value by offering recycling solutions to corporates’

With the help of her supportive husband Chris, they compiled a basic business plan, bought a truck and set to work.

“The future belongs to those who understand that doing more with less is compassionate, prosperous, and enduring, and thus more intelligent, even competitive.” – Paul Hawken

‘All recycling really costs is a mindset change’ says Colette ‘Recycle Drive allows companies 2 services. We recycle as much of their waste as possible and we reduce and reuse as much as possible’

With Chris now in the Business full time and with over 80 Employees, Recycle Drive offers tailor made recycling solutions that coupled with excellent customer service is literally Cleaning up the industry.

Recycle Drive is an innovative waste management company able to recycle and remove a wide range of recyclable products as well as general waste.

Recycle Drive offers a complete solution to the problem of commercial waste generation. We have the capacity to collect, paper, newspapers and magazines, glass, plastic, tin, empty toner cartridges, as well as offering a confidential paper shredding service. We provide an efficient, reliable and consistent service which enables companies to recycle with minimal input whilst at the same time making a positive contribution to saving the environment.

We will recycle all the waste collected. Upon collection from the recycling holding area, the waste will be weighed and the breakdown of the waste by (kg) weight will be recorded and presented at the end of each month in a consolidated report.
