From Excess Stock to Environmental Success: A Sustainable Solution by roberts recycling

In today’s fast-paced world of retail, managing excess stock can be a challenge for businesses. However, our Liverpool team recently embarked on a remarkable endeavour that not only benefited our online retail partner but also contributed to a sustainable solution for excess goods. In this blog post, we will delve into the details of our latest venture, highlighting the positive impact it had on our partner’s operations and the environment.

Rescuing Excess Stock:

Our week got off to a busy start with the purchase and collection of a staggering 140,000 units of excess stock from one of our online retail partners. Rather than letting these goods go to waste or contribute to the ever-growing landfill problem, we saw an opportunity to breathe new life into them.

Brand Protection and Territory Restrictions:

This particular deal came with specific brand protection requirements, necessitating that the exported goods be distributed only in territories where our brand partner is not currently active. By adhering to these guidelines, we ensured that our partner’s brand integrity remained intact while opening up new markets for the surplus products.

Shipping to the Middle East:

With the stock in our possession, our next step was to organize its shipment to the Middle East. This region, untapped by our brand partner, presented a promising market where the excess goods could find new homes. By diversifying the distribution channels, we expanded the reach of our partner’s products and created opportunities for revenue generation.

Sustainable Impact:

Beyond the financial gains for our partner, the most rewarding aspect of this endeavour was the environmental impact. By rescuing the excess stock from the brink of disposal, we prevented it from ending up in landfills, where it would contribute to pollution and waste. Fulfilling the purpose for which they were made, these goods will now be given a chance to be utilized and enjoyed, contributing to a more sustainable future.

Warehouse Space Optimization:

In addition to the environmental benefits, our partner also experienced the advantage of freeing up valuable warehouse space. Excess stock can be a burden, occupying precious storage areas and tying up capital. Through our service, our partner was able to quickly and efficiently clear out their warehouse, making room for new inventory and streamlining their operations.


The story of our Liverpool team’s venture exemplifies the potential for sustainable solutions in the retail industry. By rescuing 140,000 units of excess stock and strategically distributing them in untapped markets, we achieved brand protection, generated revenue, and made a significant contribution to reducing landfill waste. This success story serves as a reminder that innovative thinking and responsible actions can go hand in hand, benefiting both businesses and the environment. We remain committed to our mission of finding creative solutions for excess stock and driving positive change in the retail industry.

Remember, every item born to be worn should be cherished, and by embracing the principles of reuse, reduce, and recycle, we can create a future where sustainability and profitability go hand in hand.
