Extra Bins (All Waste Streams)
Want to start reducing your salon's waste and increasing your recycling? Simply select the bins that you require from the dropdown, add to cart, and hey presto - you're ready to start recycling!
We believe that no salon waste should be going to landfill, which is why we have options for every single salon waste stream to be disposed of responsibly, from the 10 different ways that we offer for hair recycling, to our general waste to energy solution for hair salon chemical waste.
Hair: We reuse hair in over 10 different ways. Join us on our mission to keep hair out of landfill and reduce salon waste.
Metal: By recycling your salon metals like foil and colour tubes, you can prevent recyclable materials from going to landfill!
Towels: Are your disposable salon towels compostable? Send them to us and we can make sure they get composted and don't go to landfill. We currently only accept Easy Dry and Scrummi towels.
Nail File and Glass Bins: For our lovely beauty salons, you can pop your nail files and glass bottles into these two smaller bins.
Food: Our partners at Hubba can collect your food waste weekly, just give them a call on 0333 050 0033 to arrange it. Don't forget to mention you're a GSC member to get a discount. This is the bin only and is optional to match your other in salon bins.
General Waste: Get your salon sending ZERO to landfill! Our General Waste service is for things like contaminated salon towels, wax strips, cotton buds, Paper Not Foil, excess colour and bleach and basically anything that can't be recycled! This is for the bin only, to get a year of weekly paper and plastic collections and the bins for £150, click here.

HOW IT WORKS
HOW IT WORKS
...for your FIRST TIME:
BUY STARTER KIT
Choose which waste streams you would like us to dispose of for you and then buy the appropriate starter kit. This will be sent out to you with or without a Return Box, depending on what you can afford. You will be automatically placed on our Member Locator and you can use our many physical and digital marketing material right away. You can now also start charging your customers the Green Fee.
FILL BINS WITH 'WASTE'
We provide you with designated bins to collect all of your chosen waste streams. Bins are lined with bags and when these fill up, simply place them in your Return Box if you have already purchased one. If you have not, you can purchase the Return Box after you have collected enough Green Fees to cover the cost and simply store your full bags wherever you are able.
Once your Return Box is full, you can contact us so we can agree on a date to pick it up for you. Purchase of the Return Box comes with this collection service so you will not need to pay any additional money at this point.
SET OUT RETURN BOX
Every business is different so for your first collection we will make sure we understand exactly where we need to be to pick up your Return Boxes. On the agreed date, simply set out your Return Box and our partner courier service will pick it up!
