Recycling & Waste
Recycling and waste management are key to our sustainable
From our very first day as a business, we have sought to maximise
our own recycling and to encourage our clients to do the same.
We have always produced our own promotional print materials
on recycled post-consumer waste paper. As an example, “The
Target”, our twice-yearly newsletter is produced on 100%
waste paper using vegetable based inks for a Totally Chlorine
Free production process.
We have always offered discounts to clients who use recycled
paper for their leaflets and brochures. The level of these discounts
has increased substantially over the years.
We provide clients with free recycling of surplus and out of
date literature, and have expanded these services to offer free
pick up of cardboard and plastics in many parts of Scotland
where we can use empty delivery vans returning to base.
We have installed compressed-air operated paper and cardboard
balers at our Loanhead storage and distribution centre in order
to compact waste materials before selling them on to specialist
Our staff are enthusiastic recyclers. As a result of their ideas
and suggestions, we now recycle 100% of all office paper; have
reduced our paper usage by 35%; and recycle 97% of all our waste
by providing separate bins and caddies for staff to recycle
plastic bottles, drink cans, food tins, domestic batteries etc.
We also compost kitchen waste from our staff rooms to support
our Biodiversity Garden.
Recycling makes economic and environmental
sense. At EAE, it is a way of life.
