zero waste awards

Binit scored a fantastic 4* in the Zero Waste Awards run by under the category for Waste and Recycling. The awards were assessed by how we carry out the following: Waste Prevention, Reuse, Recycling & Composting and Energy Recovery.

Binit are a next generation tech-led waste and recycling company. We operate on an Uber-model where we own the bins and use the existing vehicle network to reduce vehicle movement in cities. We keep streets tidy from bags of waste with our communal bin stores and have a web-based app where customers can monitor the fullness of their bins.

In collaboration with InExeter, Binit deliver carbon-neutral collections for small WEEE items to businesses in their district. By providing this service we have increased accessibility and awareness for businesses to recycle their used electrical goods and request pick-ups on demand, with as little as 24 hours’ notice for over four years. 600+ businesses are entitled to four free WEEE bag collections per year. Items are collected from businesses and delivered to a WEEE bulking collection point in the city centre, reducing vehicle movement. The collection and deliveries are fulfilled by Binit partner, Co-Delivery, an electric cargo bike delivery service which emits zero emissions.

With one-off clearances, if there are usable furniture, fabric, or other materials, we offer them to our not-for profit customers or organisations first before choosing to recycle. All of the furniture in the Binit office comes from office clearances which we have done in the past.

Binit actively encourage customers to have segregated recycling in order to retain the value of materials to be recycled. In July, Binit’s recycling rate was 49%. We currently offer recycling for food waste, WEEE, card, paper, mixed recycling, glass, plastic and tins and TetraPak. We are also the exclusive South West partners for KeyKeg for KeyKeg recycling.

All of our food waste are sent to anaerobic digesters and any non-recyclable waste goes to energy from waste plants that feed energy back to the grid. We do not send anything to landfill. If you would like to know more, do email us at or give us a ring at 01392 247035.
