We are an ethical recycler with a vision to create a circular life cycle for all polymer materials.
We think big by shifting perceptions of waste into resources.
We're leaving a legacy by growing the next generation Circular Economy.
We keep it simplE, focussing on scalability over complexity.
At BIG ATOM, we ensure our recycling services are carried out at the highest of industry standards with all the relevant permits and certifications.
All waste transferred to BIG ATOM is weighed on arrival & processed by us.
Weighbridge Tickets confirm all transfers.
Invoices are raised against Waste Transfer Notes and sent electronically.
No end-of-life tyre transferred to us will re-enter the tyre market for part-worn vehicle use.
Part-worns are unsafe and destabilise the value chain.
BIG ATOM supports the campaign against part-worn recovery.
Our depolymerisation technology will save 2.7 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions for every tonne of rubber and plastics we process compared to conventional methods. This contributes to the Net Zero 2050 target from the UK government.
We encourage low carbon footprint behaviour across our company and team.
BIG ATOM will work to promote the company in the local area through potential community days where local people get involved in the recycling / collection of tyres.
