RecycleLab is a waste management company specialising in the recycling of single-use plastic waste generated by the science & healthcare industries.
Each year 1 university life science department produces approximately 260 tonnes of plastic waste, with 1 scientist generating nearly 1 tonne alone! RecycleLab's mission is to divert this plastic waste from being incinerated or sent to landfill and create a circular economy, dramatically reducing carbon emissions and creating a more sustainable science industry.
The global bioscience industry generates the equivalent of 67 cruise liners full of plastic waste every year. RecycleLab's vision is to enable 100% of this plastic waste to be recycled and for there to be 0 cruise liners full of plastic!
RecycleLab was founded in 2021 by a passionate biochemist who wanted to change the culture of waste within the science industry.
RecycleLab started its very first Pilot Project in August 2022.
We are proud to say we are part of the Kings20 Business Accelerator programme 2022/2023.
RecycleLab is starting a 2nd pilot project to further validate the services provided. To find out more about how you can get involved please send us a message!
