Our recycling scheme follows the same process as before in many ways, with any changes providing benefits that positively impact the environment.
Step one: Contact your Customer Experience Specialist or order your recycling boxes via our website or your MY-SMI portal. You can still choose to order from the three different options: either two boxes, four or eight using the same product codes as before each box at 120 litres.
Step two: Fill your boxes with any clothing, textiles, PPE, safety helmets, gloves, safety boots, plastic, and non-woven items. The only caveat is these boxes must be kept clean and dry, free from secondary contamination and away from general waste. SMI and Race will do the rest!
Step three: Once your box is ready for collection, please contact SMI and we will arrange for DPD to collect your boxes and delivery them straight to Race recycling centres.
Step four: Race responsibly and securely recycle and repurpose the contents of the boxes.
Step five: The SMI cardboard recycling boxes are baled and sent to Race Recycling's sister company Elsa Recycling Group to be recycled.
Step six: SMI can provide our customers with a certificate of secure destruction at the end of the calendar month. If you would like your certificate, please contact the team at SMI.
Order online, or if you have a MY-SMI account with us you can order your Recycling boxes through your portal.
