Here at Octopus Cabling, we’re committed to reducing our carbon footprint. We have introduced a range of measures to minimise waste across all of our operations.

At our headquarters in Colchester, Essex, we regularly sort and recycle our office rubbish, and we use a certified waste carrier for disposal of all items. 

All of our customer correspondence is carried out over the web wherever possible, and we only print what we absolutely need to. We’ll even send your cable testing results to you electronically so you can store and share them easily. 

When we’re onsite, we carry out our installation and maintenance projects thoughtfully to reduce waste and ensure any redundant materials are suitably recycled. All of our vehicles are regularly serviced and driven efficiently to keep fuel consumption to a minimum. 

Got a question about our environmental policy? Our team would be happy to talk you through our commitment to green issues.

Here's some genuine recent feedback from our customers...

  • We employed Octopus to cable our new office measuring in excess of 8,500 square feet. It was not a straightforward installation, but the job was carried out quickly, efficiently and on budget. We were delighted at the results and would not hesitate to use Octopus again and have no hesitation in recommending them to other companies, large or small.

  • Having had Octopus carry out the work for two separate cabling infrastructure projects at the hospice, I would like to say how efficient and thorough your company was. Errol was always able to answer any questions we had and Octopus could not have been more flexible in responding to the ever changing deadlines on these projects. We have future projects in the pipeline and we will be using Octopus for these.

    IT Manager, St. Helena Hospice
  • We have employed Octopus Cabling many times over the last 15 + years to install Data/Fibre cabling requirements in our buildings around the country. The works have always been completed to our entire satisfaction and have no hesitation in recommending them to anybody who requires their services.
