Recycling for a Greater Britain

There is a war on waste and M & J Bowers are very much at the front line to reduce landfill and save natural resources.

Paper and cardboard

We collect and recycle waste paper and cardboard from business premises across the South West of England. All of our services are designed to be flexible to meet your needs and ensure that waste is not accumulated and taking up valuable space.

Paper is one of the most recyclable commodities and makes a real difference to the global impact. 100% of the paper and cardboard we collect is recycled and we guarantee zero to landfill. We take a client-centred approach to collections and ensure that we are there when you need us.

To discuss a tailored service to meet your needs please contact us.

Textile recycling

Having been at the forefront of the recycling industry for many years M & J Bowers understand the importance of extending the life of everyday items including clothing, shoes and other textiles.

We collect between 45 and 50 tonnes of textiles per week that might otherwise end up in landfill; much of this is sent to developing countries.
