Amber Services
Why Choose To Recycle...

As you know recycling is an excellent way of saving energy and conserving the environment. This is why Amber Services have been providing businesses with the facilities to recycle for the past 20 years. We are, in fact, responsible for setting up the bottle bank schemes in South Wales back in 1984. Always at the forefront, we are constantly looking for new initiatives in waste minimisation.

If you have a waste, we have the solution.


Making It Easy For You To Help The Environment...

Amber Services provides a comprehensive waste management service that includes collection, treatment, transfer and disposal with a heavy emphasis towards waste minimization and recycling.   Where some waste management companies simply provide a waste disposal service straight to landfill, we extend our services to separating and segregating the waste in order to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill.  We provide total waste management services to companies throughout South Wales, and these companies can be assured that when they employ Amber services to deal with their waste disposal, they are not simply disposing of their waste, but actively contributing to the reduction of waste to landfill.

For customers who cannot for any reason segregate waste on site or at source, we can process their mixed waste, in full compliance with pre treatment regulations


Amber Services is proud to announce it has achieved the new PAS 402 through the Green Compass Scheme.  Green Compass is a scheme that will provide the framework within which waste handling organisations can seek compliance with the new PAS 402 (Publicly Available Specification).  This specification, developed by CEW in cooperation with BSI, requires waste management organisations to demonstrate sound environmental practices which will then assist builders in selecting their contractors. It is expected that the scheme will allow more construction and demolition waste to be recycled and diverted from landfill.

The Process

We operate a state of the art Waste Recycling Facility. This facility can accept a wide range of wastes including hazardous wastes. At this site we utilise a wide range of innovative waste handling equipment. Currently we divert as much as 85% of all waste handled away from landfill via recycling. Every kilo of non hazardous waste we handle goes through the process at our recycling facility.

Amber operates a wheelie bin and REL collection for customers needing to recycle office paper and cardboard, and a mixed recycling scheme. This service is ideal for those businesses which would normally be excluded from a traditional recycling programme due to lack of volume.

For customers producing large volumes of recyclable waste, we can offer larger containers.  We have worked with many companies to help reduce waste to landfill and increase recycling %.

Glass Recycling

Amber Services was the first company to introduce bottle banks into South Wales in the 1980s, and as we expanded our services to become the 4th largest commercial glass recycling company in the UK the company won an award for its commitment and dedication to glass recycling in the UK.  Today, we offer a variety of glass recycling solutions for trade and commercial outlets. Collecting glass separately from general waste can make a significant contribution to recycling targets.

Recycling is an excellent way of saving energy and conserving the environment. Did you know that:

  • 1 recycled tin can would save enough energy to power a television for 3 hours.
  • 1 recycled glass bottle would save enough energy to power a computer for 25 minutes.
  • 1 recycled plastic bottle would save enough energy to power a 60-watt light bulb for 3 hours.
  • 70% less energy is required to recycle paper compared with making it from raw materials.
