We'll Pick Up & Recycle
Restaurant, Hotel and Caterer specialist wine merchant Jascots will be your "milk man". We are proud to offer our London based trade customers complimentary pick up and recycling of empty wine bottles and boxes when we make a delivery.
Jascots offers assistance with in house recycling by collecting and recycling bottles and glass sold by them from their clients. We aim to reduce consumption of natural resources and increase efficiency for our customers. No bottles or cardboard collected by us go to landfill.
At Jascots, we're not sure why other merchants have not offered something similar to their customers. It seems crazy that vehicles return from a delivery empty when the journey could be put to better use taking glass and cardboard for recycling.
The 'milkman' recycling scheme is offered for:
- bottles and boxes that were sold to you by Jascots and where Jascots is your exclusive supplier
- bottles that are empty and placed within a serviceable cardboard box
- London post codes.
In return for your 'empties' you will be issued a Waste Transfer Note with Waste Transfer Codes EWC03/03/08 and EWC16/01/20 by one of our friendly drivers in accordance with The Environment Agency guidelines.
While many businesses recycle glass bottles and cardboard boxes, a large proportion still goes to landfill. The UK currently recycles around 50% of container glass (jars and bottles) so we are far behind other countries such as Switzerland and Finland who recycle more than 90% of their glass. The UK on-trade sector, alone, currently throws away over 600,000 tonnes of glass every year.

As well as the new 'milk man' service, Jascots currently recycles 90% of office waste and has reduced its usage of paper by 25%. For example, the proportion of customers receiving paper invoices has been reduced from 43% to 1% since 2009. Overall Jascots has reduced the volume of its waste going to landfill by 50%.
Jascots was awarded the internationally recognised environmental management system accreditation ISO14001 in October 2011.
Carbon Trust Verified
Every year Jascots calculates its carbon footprint and, uniquely within the wine industry, they have it independently verified by the Carbon Trust. Jascots has gained full Carbon Trust verification in every year since 2011. For 2016, Jascots' carbon footprint was 82.5 tonCO2e. This is a 4% reduction of CO2e per bottle of wine sold. This is on the back of a 15% decrease per bottle reduction in 2015. This is the fifth year in a row Jascots has reduced their carbon footprint.
