A Bit About Us
We may have started small, but we’ve always had very big ideas. We launched in 2000 and we just haven’t stopped; a years’ worth of achievements always seems more like three at AO.
Our customers and now our biggest advocates, and we’ve made millions of them happy. We’ve even launched in new territories throughout Europe. Sometimes we have to pinch ourselves.
But, we’re determined to be the best electrical retailer in Europe, and for that, you need to be driven. We need to be bold enough to try new things, and smart enough to see them through. We need to care about people, and we always like to have a little fun as we do it.
At AO Recycling, we’re committed to extracting as much value as possible from the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) that gets thrown away by UK households every year. Like the rest of the AO Group, we are a very exciting and enthusiastic company that likes to think big. Our new plant in Telford, Shropshire is state of the art and able to process more items, more efficiently than any other site in the UK and this is where the role will be based.
