Testimonial Section

Gratte Brothers, Stevenage

“Using the Paper Planet scheme for our office has made a great difference to our everyday recyclable waste. With flexible collections, we can manage our waste better with the colour coded bins, meaning we don’t co-mingle the recyclables.”

C&C Training, Leighton Buzzard

“A Pearce Paper Planet specialist was recommended to us locally for shredding our confidential documents that we could no longer keep up with by hand. They also provide us with the waste transfer notes on collection & destruction certificates needed for our records. We have a good service & would recommend Pearce Paper Planet to others. ”
