About Us

Paper Round was started as a Friends of the Earth project in 1988, specifically to provide high quality environmental services to offices in London. Today we are pioneers and innovators and keep ahead of the curve in waste management processing, collection, reporting and in strategies for client engagement. Paper Round are part of the BPR Group, the umbrella company for Paper Round, Secure Paper and Carbon Smart. Secure Paper is the confidential waste arm of the group, whilst Carbon Smart provide environmental consultancy services. In 2013 we invested £2m in a fully enclosed, operational hub for our new Materials Recycling Facility and state-of-the-art secure shredding depot, allowing us to self-deliver across all of our services. 

We are determined, passionate, skilled and experienced; by choosing Paper Round as your service provider you will achieve an unbeatable standard throughout your waste management scheme.

Our values


Our services are easy to implement and use, meaning you don’t have to spend all your time thinking about waste and recycling; it just works.


Our Customer Service Charter sets out how we strive for excellence, providing you with the best possible quality of service.


We are a recycling company first and foremost, rather than a waste company that collects recycling. From closed-loop recycling solutions, to our charity donations; our ethical stance isn’t just lip service, it’s an integral part of who we are and what we do.


Our Promise
