Electricians,
Be more green and earn cash at the same time...

We understand that electricians can generate large volumes of scrap cable which make our bins the perfect solution for you to use to store your cable before we come along and collect it.

We collect your cable from you, this is how it works:

1. Sign up and receive a free bin

All of our customers are provided with a 240L bin designed to securely store your waste cable (other options can be arranged if bin does not suit your needs).

2. Save up your scrap cable

Whether you generate large volumes of scrap cable or just a handful a week, we cater for you. Simply collect it in your new and secure bin and we’ll take care of the rest.

3. Let us know when your bin is almost full

When your bin is on the verge, let us know by contacting the number on the underside of the lid and we will schedule your collection ASAP.

4. We’ll come to weigh and collect your scrap cable

If you are busy, that's fine, we can carry out collections whilst you aren’t home. Either way you will receive weight and price confirmation straight through to your Greencable account and the transaction will be made by the next working day. We’ll also drop a waste consignment note through your letterbox.

5. Cable is sorted and processed at our HQ

We source renewable capabilities for all materials processed diverting all elements of the cable away from landfill.

6. All elements of the cable go back into manufacturing processes

Your cable goes through a rigorous sorting process in preparation for stripping and granulation (coming soon). This helps us achieve the best quality copper granules and insulation re-grind.

7. Monitor scrapping history (coming soon)

Our Promise to Electricians

“We bring more to the industry than just a cable scrapping solution. We promise to straighten your mass of messy cables out by bringing you the most value through great prices and an easy to use service with friendly staff”

Power Plus Electrical Services case study

How Syed is earning an extra £400 a year hassle free whilst looking after the environment at the same time.

Syed is the owner of Power Plus Electrical Services based in Birmingham. Syed takes on a variety of different jobs from basic to rewires. Syed use to collect his scrap cable and take it to the scrap yard but soon stopped doing this because he didn't have anything to store the cable in and couldn't be bothered with the hassle of taking it to the scrap yard because it was time out of his day and he didn't find the customer service at the scrap yard very good.So rather than collecting it, Syed started leaving it at the job or putting it in the skip.

“At first, I couldn't be bothered with the hassle of storing it and taking it to the scrapyard. I didn’t get much cable so didn't think it would be worth it”

Things soon changed after Syed discovered Greencable. Since we dropped off one of our 240l bins at Syed’s, he can easily drop in any scrap cable as and when he gets it. When the bin is full, all he has to do is give Greencable a call and we will come and collect it and pay him within 24hours.

“Greencable is such an easy service to use, i let the boys know when the bin is full and they simply come and collect it. The best thing is that they offer the best price so i can get the most out of my waste without having to break a sweat”

Since Syed has been using Greencable, we have managed to put an extra £400 in his pocket over the last 12 months and he is safe in the knowledge that his cable is being disposed of in the most environmentally friendly way.

“Every time Greencable visited to do a collection they came back with something better to make the service even simpler for me to use”

Greencable is a newly established company and we’re constantly improving our services because we listen to their customers just like we listened to Syed. There are so many ways we can add value to our electricians whether it's through our competitive prices,ease of use, trustworthy service and respect for our customers.

“I love using Greencble’s service, I didn't realise how much I could get for my scrap cable. I will never look back”
