No waste material goes to landfill

We take our green credentials seriously, ensuring all of our procedures are carried out with the least possible impact on the environment. For example, all metal and plastic are separated and processed ready for re-introduction into UK manufacturing. Any un-recyclable waste is used in solid fuels or even road aggregates and any electricity generated from the recycling procedure is used to power the recycling plant, as well as being fed to the national grid.

Open to all

All of the TipTop Media recycling services are open to businesses as well as individuals, recognising that we all have items that we want destroyed securely and with as little impact on the planet as possible.  

From bank statements to financial documents, digibeta to LTO tapes and from old hard drives to VHS tapes that are taking up space in the loft, we are happy to work with you to ensure that these items are securely recycled.

Confidential Paper Recycling

UK firms are legally obliged to handle with care, and destroy, documents containing personal data about clients. To make sure this is carried out correctly, it’s recommended that sensitive papers are professionally destroyed and recycled, eliminating all possible access to information.  

At TipTop Media we provide a trustworthy confidential paper recycling service. We will shred and recycle your paperwork securely, giving you a certificate of destruction 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. 

Individual service 

You don’t have to be a business or organisation to use our confidential paper recycling service. We are happy to work with individuals, too. From old bank statements to bills and other personal documents, we can dispose of your paperwork in an efficient and environmentally-friendly manner. 

* To ensure the health and safety of our customers and drivers are protected at all times additional charges may also be incurred where extra work or time is incurred in the course of the collection.

Tape & Film Recycling

With technology continuing to evolve, data is increasingly being stored digitally, leaving many businesses and private individuals with piles of old tape and film that they no longer need.   

When it comes to disposing of this old tape and film it’s not as simple as just throwing it in the bin or hiring a skip. As well as having a legal duty to protect any information stored about other individuals and their interests when arranging disposal, companies also need to consider the environmental impact of their actions. 

At TipTop Media we have the solution to environmentally friendly tape and film recycling.

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. 

Everyone is welcome 

Individuals can access our tape and film recycling service, too. Maybe you have piles of VHS tapes or stacks of CDs or floppy disks. We can ensure that these are securely recycled, in an environmentally friendly manner.

* To ensure the health and safety of our customers and drivers are protected at all times additional charges may also be incurred where extra work or time is incurred in the course of the collection.

Hard Drive Recycling

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.  

With the help of TipTop Media this is no longer a concern as you can trust us to securely recycle your hard drive in a way that has as little impact on the environment as possible. 

Our secure hard drive disposal services are available not only to businesses but individuals, too.  

Benefits of hard drive recycling: 

  • Your hard drive will be securely crushed so no one can access your data  
  • Environmentally friendly 
  • Compliance with data protection laws 
  • Peace of mind 


With landfill disposal no longer an acceptable option for old media, our service provides you with a much greener option. 

TipTop Media will securely collect, dismantle and recycle your hard drives, ensuring no-one has undue access to the information stored on them. Once the drive has been crushed it will be separated out into plastic and metal parts ready for re-introduction into UK manufacturing. 

Whether you are a business with a whole host or hard drives you’re looking to securely recycle, or an individual with just the one, we can help. 

* To ensure the health and safety of our customers and drivers are protected at all times additional charges may also be incurred where extra work or time is incurred in the course of the collection.
