Our Values

At the heart of our mission is the idea that the world is made a better place through the belief that a difference can always be made.

ABOUT US

Our Story...

Dave and Josh both started off as trainers working for an educational training provider. They wanted to develop courses around recycling and climate change.

With entrepreneurial mindsets and an idea stemming from Josh’s Dad, the seed to start granulating electrical cable was planted, but where to get the supply of cable from?

With Josh’s experience in construction, the concept of collaborating with electricians to provide them with better prices for their scrap cable was developed (on a napkin) and Greencable was born.

In 2020 we carried out a nationwide survey and discovered that electricians combined in the UK take nearly 88,000 tonnes worth of cable to the scrap yard each year. We also discovered that many scrap yards dispose of PVC/cable insulation unethically which amounts to a staggering 60,000 tonnes of renewable waste going straight to landfill.

Since working with electricians, we understand that other trades generate renewable waste some of which doesn't always get recycled. We realised that we can add similar value to other sectors by diversifying toward plumbers, mechanics and landscape gardeners.

Our mission, along with providing the trades with more competitive prices for their scrap, is to promote the circular economy by incentivising recycling and creative use whilst drastically decreasing the amount of unnecessary renewable materials going to landfill.
