About Us


The Recycled Candle Company

Our story begins when Richard, our resident recycled candle maker, was a young boy...

While other children were watching television or playing computer games, Richard was in the kitchen with his mother making jam, soap, jellies and...candles.

This was where he first had the idea of melting down old candles that were destined for the family bin, in order to recycle the wax, and make new candles.

It didn’t take long for Richard to realise the potential in this venture, and its positive impact on the environment.

The recycled candle concept

Our concept is a pretty simple one:

With the ever-increasing costs of commercial and non-commercial waste disposal, we offer to collect your scrap candle wax and take it away to be recycled and given new life.

New range of scented candles and christmas candles

After the wax is collected, it is melted down, cleaned, dyed, and scented - all by us, ready to be made into new candles. Browse our current range of scented candles and christmas candles.

Want to recycle your candles?

We work closely with local businesses in London such as pubs and restaurants who are keen to reduce their waste. We are always on the look-out for new partners, so if you think we can help you recycle your unwanted candles, then please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Work with us

If you would like to be a part of the team here at 'The Recycled Candle Company,' then please send us an email telling us who you are, and how you might be able to help.

Together we can reduce the vast amount of discarded wax just sitting in landfill, and make beautiful new candles!

Thank you

Richard
