    Hi guys,
    The foreign company I work for is planning to collect certain waste (such as textiles or waste from mechanical processing) from businesses and recycle it abroad. Now we're looking for such offers but after searching Google for quite a long time we weren't able to find anything we'd be interested in. Does anybody here know a website where we could find offers of waste to collect? All the help will be much appreciated.
    Greetings!

    Have you asked the companies who produce that waste?

    We thought about it and we'll probably have to do so but we were wondering if there exists something like waste exchange - a website like gumtree but with waste offered to collect. Thanks for your help.

    Have not come across that. For our company waste we just contracted with a local organisation to provide a big bin and empty it every 2 weeks.

    You would certainly need a waste transfer license and whole lot more documentation and licenses.

    Why would people want to move waste to be recycled abroad - not very green and lots of companies already offer processing in the UK.

    I agree with @ethical PR , why does it need to go abroad?

    I found a website in the UK that might be of assistance. It is a "waste exchange" site and it is called smeinc.com
