Recycling Solutions


At TipTop Media Management, we’re partnered with a fully licensed waste carrier registered with the Environment Agency to carry out recycling in accordance with WEEE directives. We’re an environmentally conscious company committed to promoting good practice through providing efficient business recycling in London.

What we recycle:

  • Media – All tapes from VHS through to professionally recorded D1, Digi, LTO etc plus 35/16mm film
  • Paper – All paper and confidential documents
  • Hard drives - Complete erasure of contents before recycling

No waste material goes to landfill

All recycling is done to the highest UK environmental standards and any electricity generated from the procedure is used to power the recycling plant, as well as being fed to the national grid. All the metal and plastic is separated and processed ready for re-introduction into UK manufacturing and any un-recyclable waste is used in solid fuels or even road aggregates.

  • Recycling saves energy and helps reduce your impact on the environment
  • Recycling saves trees and in return trees absorb carbon dioxide from the air helping to protect the ozone layer
  • Recycling saves water, oil, energy and so the list goes on...
Recycling FAQs

Confidential Paper Recycling

Disposing of confidential documents is a well-known security risk for any business; it is recommended that sensitive papers are professionally destroyed and recycled, eliminating all possible access to information.

As well as being concerned about their own interests, UK firms are legally obliged to handle with care, and destroy, documents containing personal data about clients.

TipTop Media will shred and recycle your paperwork securely, giving you a certificate of confirmation for your records when the process is complete.

Documents can be recycled at intervals of your choice: daily, weekly or monthly sessions are viable, and there is no limit on the amount of papers we can handle.

Benefits of outsourcing recycling:

  • Client data securely destroyed
  • Regular service to avoid backlogs
  • Certification of disposal, ensuring legal compliance
  • Swift, professional document recycling process.

Private documents

Despite digital filing, running a successful business usually involves handling large quantities of paperwork. Information such as payroll documentation, personnel files, financial information and client records, must be treated with care and disposed of in the same manner.

Tape & Film Recycling

The evolution of media means that data is increasingly being stored digitally; the transition has left many businesses with old tape and film that needs to be irrevocably destroyed.

With the current environmental issues surrounding landfill disposal, unwanted and excess media storage needs to be disposed of in a more earth friendly way; this has become a necessity in almost all industries.

Companies that handle data have a legal duty to protect any information stored about other individuals and their interests when arranging disposal.

TipTop Media will collect your unwanted tape and film material and securely recycle it, ensuring that information cannot be accessed by outside parties.

Advantages of a professional recycling service:

  • Environmentally friendly
  • Abide by data protection laws
  • Peace of mind
  • Fast media disposal
  • Option to have on-site media recycling bin

Face-to-face service

The large quantities of film and tape now accumulated by firms mean that recycling often needs to be picked up directly from premises. Our drivers will come at an allocated time, making sure that items are fully secured and delivered for recycling.

Hard-Drive Recycling

Identity fraud and identity theft is definitely on the rise and with more and more people owning computers and businesses frequently upgrading their computer systems, we are all now being regularly left with old hard drives which need to be disposed of securely.

The more companies evolve, is the more client and business data is transferred to new hard drives but information remains accessible on the discarded hardware and throwing it in the bin is no longer a viable option if security is uppermost in your mind.

UK data protection law states that firms must take reasonable care to make sure all clients personal details are secure, making hard drive disposal a difficult proposition but not impossible.

Benefits of hard drive recycling:

  • Secure shredding
  • Complete erasure
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Compliance with data protection laws
  • Peace of mind


In addition, the environmental awareness expected of firms has added an extra burden, with landfill disposal no longer an acceptable option for old media.

TipTop Media will securely collect, dismantle and recycle your hard drives, making sure that no-one has undue access to the information stored on them by erasing its contents and then physically shredding the drive which is then separated out into its plastic and metal parts ready for re-introduction into UK manufacturing.
