The Recycled Candle Company


We help one candle at a time, save them from becoming a waste material that ends up in landfill and instead accept any form of candle wax from pillars and votives to jars and tealights. We call this our #candleamnesty. Instead, we recycle and reuse the wax to bring it ‘new life’ saving 40 tonnes of wax from landfill annually and making approximately 60,000 candles annually. From our shop and studio in Exeter, Devon, UK - we produce handmade candles using 100% recycled wax!

Our history

The Recycled Candle Company chief candle-maker ‘candler’ Richard Hills-Ingyon has been making candles since he was a child. He and Sargon Latchin met in 2014 and the pair together developed the business concept.

They opened their first store in Ottery St Mary, Devon in 2017. Then in 2019, they moved the business to one of Exeter’s oldest charming bustling indie streets called Gandy Street, in Exeter, Devon. They have now moved to an industrial unit to be able to increase the amount of waste wax that they recycle and take their efforts national.
