Hear from some of our happy customers

"NRC completed a full site audit and advised us on improvements we could make increasing recycling and reducing costs. They worked with our team to help everyone understand what we are trying to achieve. We have since invested in new equipment and the waste management process is much more efficient – and we now recycle over 90% of our waste. The NRC team are responsive and attend site whenever we need them."

The types of event waste we handle

Every event, big or small, produces a wide range of waste streams. At NRC, we have experience in handling them all.

Commercial Waste Disposal

General Waste

Events inevitably generate general waste; we will manage it sustainably and keep you informed on where it ends up, through our user-friendly service portal.


Mixed Recycling

Do you have to hit a recycling target for your event? Make reaching those goals smoother with our mixed recycling services. A little on-site sorting from your side, and we’ll manage the rest.

Cardboard Waste


From promotional materials to packaging, events generate a lot of paper and cardboard. If it’s accumulating, we’re here to help. We can even set up an on-site baling system to reduce collection costs.

Food Waste

Food Waste

Leftovers from the main meal, or scraps from food stalls, give them all to us and we’ll convert them into green electricity, compost or fertiliser. Separating food waste can also cut down your overall waste management costs.

Glass Waste


By managing glass waste separately, events can significantly cut down on waste management expenses. Hand over your glass waste, and we’ll ensure it’s completely recycled.



Events often have confidential waste. The containment, transport and destruction of your confidential waste is compliant with the UK’s data protection regulations.

Commercial Waste Disposal

Commodities (with rebates)

Do your events generate substantial amounts of cardboard or plastic waste? Give it to us, and we’ll pay you a rebate in return.
