Roll-on Roll-off containers

With bigger projects comes bigger recycling responsibility. Roll-on, roll-off containers or ROROs are larger capacity skips that are ideal for any mixed materials you no longer need. Flexible hire periods and sizes are available throughout Exeter and Devon with rapid changeover periods when needed.

Who we are
Coastal Recycling Team

Employee-owned business

“Our teams feel invested in the business and have a direct incentive to build a successful organisation that continues to deliver great service to customers. Staff will also share in the Group’s financial success through profit-related bonuses.”

– Emily Delve, Commercial Director

We might not be related but we are still a family. Since 2021, Coastal Recycling have been an employee-owned business, so we care about the business like equals. It gives our work a personal touch because we’re in it together.

For the last 30 years, your community, your neighbour’s homes and your local authorities have been working with us, and we want to do the same for you. We aim to maximise recycling and recovery rates, handle your waste responsibly, reduce your costs and ultimately achieve a more sustainable future.

Each year we grow, but we stay true to our roots, looking after the businesses that make Devon what it is. Connecting with the local community and educating with our sustainability knowledge is a key practice at Coastal and one we strive to achieve year after year.

Skip the rest

Not only are we competitively priced, we genuinely care what happens to your recycling and waste. We will do everything in our power to recycle or recover as much of your waste as possible. We don’t claim to recycle 100% of everything we process as this is just not possible, but honesty and integrity is part of who we are.

Devon Dub Fest

“Devon Dub Fest have used Coastal Recycling since 2014. The service they provide has always been second to none, they understand the importance of delivery and collection dates and times being met and provide us with complete peace of mind throughout.
In addition, the customer service experience from enquiry through to completion has always been exemplary – a proactive and friendly approach, nothing is too much trouble for account managers or drivers.

An absolute pleasure to do business with, I would recommend them to anyone arranging an event or festival who has a need for waste recovery.”
