Company History

2007 – Green Beginnings

Pure Planet Recycling was formed by Paul Turbutt and Phil Gibbs to collect and recycle waste electrical equipment. The unique selling point of the business was to handle ALL types of electrical waste. Companies were soon benefiting from the services offered and the business began to grow.

2009 – Business Developments

After 2 years in business, and with steady growth, the company expanded its coverage region. This saw an increase in Local Authority, Educational Facilities and business contracts. WEEE storage containers were being placed on-site for safe and secure storage solutions throughout 7 counties.

2010 – Meet EDD

In order to provide a physical method of destroying a hard drive on-site, Pure Planet Recycling created EDD (Eco Drive Destroyer). EDD destroys a hard drive within seconds by bending and snapping the drive without the need for Electricity. This ensures the hard drive is rendered useless prior to shredding and recovering the materials.

2011 – Green Business Award

Pure Planet Recycling were recognised in the Bedfordshire Business Awards as Green Business of The Year. In a tough category, they were acknowledged for their hard work in ensuring all business practises were optimised to reduce their environmental impact. Customers of the business also receive the benefit of a green recycling solution.

2017 – ISO14001 & CQMS

Pure Planet Recycling achieves certification for the new Environmental Management System Standard ISO 14001:2015 from SIRA. The company also passes a successful H&S assessment and is now a member of the CQMS safety scheme. These accreditations demonstrate a professional approach in both health and safety and environment impact for the company and its customer base.

2017 – 10 Green Years

The business celebrates 10 green years with a big announcement. Pure Planet Recycling has now expanded to offer a national WEEE collection and recycling service. From small, one off collections, through to lorry loads of waste electrical equipment. An environmentally friendly transport route planner is introduced to reduce the Co2 count.
