Cae Post is a social enterprise based in Powys, providing waste management and recycling services across mid-Wales and north Shropshire.

About Cae Post

Cae Post recycling homepageCae Post is an innovative social enterprise based in Powys, providing trade waste and business recycling services across mid-Wales and north Shropshire.

Cae Post believes that employment and access to work are central to how people see themselves and that people with a range of disabilities, or who are disadvantaged in the labour market, should be given the same opportunity of contributing to their community through work.

The mission of Cae Post is to tackle disadvantage and create opportunity through environmental initiative.

We are a business just like any other but, as a social enterprise, the income we generate helps us fulfil our objectives to give everyone a chance to be part of the working world. We have been involved in this work for over 30 years and by purchasing our services or products, you are helping us to meet our objectives. Cae Post is a member of Social Enterprise UK and Social Firms Wales.

Who we help

Society writes off a vast number of individuals as having nothing to contribute. This includes those with any form of disability; those who have been in trouble and convicted of a crime; those who have been addicted to alcohol or drugs, both illegal and prescribed; those that suffer from mental illness; those 18 to 24 year olds not in education, employment or training, and in fact anyone that society judges not to meet “the norm”.

We believe that by promoting the many individual achievements our beneficiaries make, Cae Post can help to create a more inclusive image for all those who are disadvantaged.

Our people

Cae Post Trustees

Cae Post has a management committee all of whom are volunteers and have an interest in its aims and a commitment to seeing the work succeed. Because of Cae Post’s legal structure – it is both a company and a charity – they are both trustees and directors and have responsibilities under both headings.

Cae Post says don’t recycle – until you have tried Freegle

Cae Post is proud of its 30 year history in developing innovative recycling projects, but with billions of tonnes of material being extracted from the earth each year to make ‘stuff’, we think it’s as important to reuse items as it is to recycle them. (more…)
