Home » About Us


Acorn Recyclers are a UK-based recycling company that recovers and reprocesses waste plastics and papers. We have been operating for over 50 years and are a second-generation family-run business. We offer customers Total Waste Management solutions, tailored to their individual needs. We have a friendly and personal approach to working with our customers and will always be open and honest to ensure excellent working relations.


Acorn offers tailor-made solutions for each client because we recognise that no business is the same, there is no “one size fits all”. We can advise on the best method for your business, giving you the most time and cost-effective disposal operation. We understand that our business assists your processes to run well. We will allow you to focus on your core business, and allow us to manage your waste!


Acorn’s waste management solutions are flexible to your needs. Acorn will assist in keeping your premises clear, accessible, and compliant with health and safety regulations with our fast collection turnaround.

We offer site consultations, to assess the best way to handle your waste streams. After our visit, we will provide a report to set out any potential operational savings, opportunities to reduce your carbon footprint and steps to take to become a zero-to-landfill business and improve your circularity.

We also can provide high-quality machinery such as balers to assist you in the process either on a purchase or rental basis.

Where there are large amounts of waste, we can leave a trailer or RORO Skip on-site for you. With our fleet of 13-meter trailers, collection and delivery can be made speedily, trailer swaps can be made the next day if required. We can also provide skips, dolavs, metal stillages, bags and sacks dependent on your requirements.
