Clear the Clutter This Winter

How organised is your office? Do you operate a clear desk policy? Or do you have stacks of paper and files piled up everywhere?

Generally, an untidy office is due to the problem of correctly disposing of unwanted items. This could be paper that needs to be shredded or electrical equipment that needs to be recycled.

Fortunately, help is at hand. Let’s take a look at some of the waste collection services we offer that will enable you to clear the clutter from your workplace and increase productivity and efficiency.

Confidential waste collection

A big problem for many businesses is how to get rid of confidential material. The introduction of the GDPR has meant that personal data must be kept secure while criminal activities such as identity fraud have become a widespread problem.

Criminals will target companies of any size to try and access the confidential information they hold. This is why it’s imperative to ensure the secure storage, transportation and destruction all forms of unwanted data and information.

At Phoenix, we offer a full confidential waste collection service that takes responsibility for the disposal of all your sensitive waste. This covers anything from confidential paperwork to staff uniforms.

We provide secure on or off-site destruction to BS15713:2009 standard to give our clients complete peace of mind.

Office recycling

Another reason for clutter to build up in the workplace is the lack of recycling facilities. To address this, we have created a cost-effective commercial recycling solution that covers the disposal and recycling of the following:

  • Plastics
  • Cans
  • Paper and cardboard
  • Toners
  • Wood

We want to help businesses clean up the environment by making recycling office materials easier. Our commercial recycling solutions range from the supply of recycling sacks and colour coded bins through to regular fully managed collections.

Commercial waste collections

As part of our zero waste to landfill management solution, we also provide commercial collections for general waste, dry mixed recyclables, and food and glass.

We understand that each business is different and recycling requirements vary dramatically. That’s why we offer a bespoke, client-focused commercial waste management solution that meets your specific needs. We look for the most cost-effective option for you.

WEEE recycling collections

The recycling of electrical waste can be problematic as businesses must adhere to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE Directive) on waste electrical and electronic equipment.

We handle the full range of WEEE items including the following commercial and industrial equipment:

  • All electrical waste
  • IT equipment
  • Audio/video
  • Batteries
  • Lightbulbs
  • Fluorescent lighting
  • Commercial equipment
  • Industrial equipment

We provide evidence notes for compliance schemes, so you can confirm an Environment Agency approved company is handling your commercial waste.

Hazardous waste collections

Hazardous waste is a highly regulated area and must be managed safely, efficiently and lawfully through hazardous waste collection services.

At Phoenix, we provide comprehensive hazardous waste collection services that meet the most stringent regulations. We also offer advice on the appropriate storage, collection and disposal methods for your specific waste streams including:

  • Chemicals
  • Oils
  • Asbestos
  • Paints and adhesives
  • Batteries
  • Light bulbs
  • Offensive waste like human, animal and medical waste

Why not undertake a waste audit?

Best practice commercial waste management starts with a comprehensive waste audit of all the waste being produced and handled on your site.

We tailor our waste audits to your location and processes. We review all waste being generated, existing segregation techniques, positioning of containers and other information that will help ensure improved recycling.

This audit can then be used to implement the most sustainable and cost-effective waste management service for your organisation as well as providing a baseline for future monitoring of performance.

"We had some initial pricing from Phoenix to carry out regular shredding collections from our 6 offices around the country. Their pricing was significantly cheaper than what we were paying, so we went ahead and procured shredding services through Phoenix. They sorted out cabinet install dates that fell in line with the incumbent companies last collection days, to ensure each location had the correct console on site for when they were needed. We have a pre-determined schedule from Phoenix which lets us know what days they are visiting each office to collect the shredding, so we know when they are coming. At the end of the month, we receive a single invoice that outlines all the collections made. Not only has this made our lives easier, it has also saved money on our shredding service as a whole. We would highly recommend Phoenix."


"The Result: I was absolutely delighted with the service I received from Phoenix. They made their requirements very clear which really helped with my tight deadline. The finished product, which was delivered on time, looks incredible in my new office and I’m proud to show it off when I have clients visit. It has uplifted the professionalism of the office and I’m thoroughly delighted at the impression it gives."


"Our office space was quite outdated and needed a lick of paint and some TLC. Having Phoenix take the pressure from us to compare quotes and liaise with contractors & suppliers made redecorating a large office space a lot easier."


"When I joined my new company, they had 2 Jura coffee machines not working at all and a Billi Water Tap not working properly.  Staff had gotten used to boiling kettles and drinks with room temperature water. The Phoenix guys investigated the issues and I received a full break down of all the issues machine by machine along with the individual parts costs within 2 days. The new coffee machine is now working perfectly, has plumbed mains water and has a new milk fridge. The Billi tap was repaired but unfortunately still wasn’t working correctly, so, a new tap was ordered, delivered, installed and setup within 2 weeks, so we now have very happy staff. The fault finding, quotations and delivery of the service we received were second to none."


"In the short time I have been ordering from Phoenix, I have found the on-line ordering system user-friendly. My contact, Freja, has been involved in managing a manifestation of an office privacy room. Freja has displayed great qualities in her communication skills which are the epitome of any works being carried out."


"We have multiple sites all across the UK so managing the waste is a massive task, but having Phoenix helping us to manage all the contracts, really does make our lives a lot easier! They are always happy to help, the communication is great and we love having Phoenix as a supplier!"


"We are an extremely fast paced company, with high expectations of all our staff and suppliers. Phoenix adapt to our fast pace and also bring in ideas to how we can better manage our office supplies. I'd happily recommend them and am very happy at the service they provide."


"I have worked with Phoenix in my last 2 FM roles. This move was required very quickly as we wanted to sub lease our 5th floor. From first discussion through to move completion it was less than 3 weeks, which is very quick. Everything happened as expected and all my staff were working from their new desk positions on the Monday. I had great communication from the Phoenix staff which included a full debrief the week after the move."


"I have worked with Phoenix for a number of years in different Facilities roles.  They are unique as a supplier; providing detailed cost centre reports, pro-active help when mobilising new offices, pro-active account management to review expenditure and identify cost savings, ability to purchase one-off bespoke items, fast responses and good communication"
