Recycling simplified

Recycling can be complex. Determining what is and isn’t recyclable and how to dispose of it properly isn’t always clear. But there is value in your waste. Making sure your waste and recycling is managed properly ensures legal compliance and could qualify your business for rebates and savings that you may be missing out on. Each individual business sector has their specific rules to respect, and unique sustainability commitments. This makes dealing with waste more complex. If you’re facing waste or recycling challenges that are placing additional pressure on your business, Cauda can work with you to develop a custom solution, designed for your business.

Dealing with waste correctly is prudent and profitable

Dealing with waste correctly isn’t just an obligation, it can help your business stand out from the crowd. When you cut through the complexity and compliance, dealing with recycling isn’t a headache – it’s an opportunity to innovate and cost-save.  If you’re a business owner, facilities manager, office manager, or in charge of a new innovative, sustainable business, appropriate and compliant recycling is high on your agenda. Knowing that you are dealing with your waste correctly and compliantly isn’t just important for your success, it’s important for your reputation, your results and your survival. When you work with Cauda, you can pass on your recycling challenges to us with confidence.

Here’s why Cauda really makes a difference


At Cauda we believe that open, two-way communication is at the core of every successful relationship. No matter what sector our client is from, our journey together starts with an open and honest exchange about objectives and goals. We are a team of people, not a faceless company. Our job is to deliver and make your life easier by designing a solution that fits your business and helps you achieve your goals.


When you engage a supplier you have expectations. You expect your recycling company to come when they say they will, do what they promise, and deal with your waste in the way you’ve agreed. At Cauda we commit to every agreement we make, which means that our customers reach the point they don’t even notice that their waste is being dealt with. This means that they get on with their job and we get on with ours.


Everyone at Cauda is committed to delivering above and beyond our customer’s expectations. When we say we will do something – you can consider it done. That is what makes Cauda truly different. We understand that your recycling is an important link in your success chain and we do all we can to make it the hassle-free process you deserve. Whatever your goals, we’ll listen to them and we’ll make them our own.

Recycling – done your way

At Cauda, we don’t just talk the talk; we walk the walk.

Cauda was a recent finalist in the Scottish Environment Business Awards (VIBES-2017) for the work we have undertaken to ensure our collections are as environmentally friendly as possible.

We hold the Bronze FORS (Fleet Operators Recognition) award, which ensures we have the correct logistics systems in place and that we are working at a standard above legislative compliance.

We will always look to move your waste up the Waste Management Hierarchy, eliminating landfill, and searching for reuse and recycling opportunities for all wastes. We can provide zero waste to landfill solutions.

We have strong links with Scottish Prison Service, where we work in partnership to provide employment opportunities on release from prison.

The Cauda Story

In 2013 our General Manager, Graeme Meldrum was tasked with finding a Scotland-wide single supplier of recycling and waste services for a major retail customer with specific requirements. Graeme’s search was exhaustive but in the end fruitless.

Seeing this as an opportunity rather than a failure we decided to create our own company so we could meet the needs of this, and any future customers.

By putting the customer at the centre of our business model, we built the solution around client requirements, future goals and budgetary constraints. We thrive on finding innovative solutions, and solving complex problems, whilst improving customers reporting systems and environmental credentials. And that’s how Cauda was born.
