About Us

Recycling refrigeration is a specialist part of the waste and recycling industry

 It is a rapidly growing sub-sector due largely to the implementation of the original WEEE (Waste and Electrical and Electronic Equipment) directive in the UK, with that came the associated requirements for the recovery, reuse, recycling and treatment of WEEE.

At Sustain we partner with our clients to support them in being fully compliant with their cooling equipment recycling and certification.
