Founded in 2004 by Bruce Bratley, First Mile makes it easy for UK businesses to recycle and improve corporate sustainability. Serving over 25,000 customers, First Mile focuses on aiming to close the loop where possible.
They are at the forefront of the waste industry, investing in technologies and continually innovating to transform how businesses recycle, manage waste and reduce their impact on the environment.
First Mile can recycle over 20 different types of materials, from the usual suspects of paper, cardboard, plastic, glass and food, to the more obscure such as crisp packets, coffee pods, light bulbs and cooking oil.
First Mile recycle 66% of all material collected – the average in London is 30%. With a no landfill policy, anything that can’t be recycled is turned into green energy.
