About Bedford

Oltco Bedford is proud to offer customers its award-winning Recycle Bound product. Utilising waste plastic that is already in circulation, Recycle Bound is the world’s first sustainable resin bound driveway solution.

Waste plastic, such as plastic straws, drink bottles and food packaging, is mixed with Oltco’s aggregate and stone blend to create a durable yet stunning finish, ideal for both domestic and commercial projects.

Alongside Recycle Bound, Oltco developed Recycle Base, a ground reinforcement system made utilising low-grade waste plastic, including ocean waste plastic.

Recycle Bound and Recycle Base are available to customers across the local area who are looking for a sustainable solution for their outdoor transformation.

The Oltco Process

Our quick and easy process from your enquiry to aftercare where the Oltco team will look after you and your project.



Once you’ve contacted our team at HQ, a member of staff will ask you a series of questions related to your project and they will then qualify you over the phone.


Site Visit

If you are happy with the estimate given by the team, we will send your details to your closest franchise where they will get in touch to arrange a free visit.



After your deposit invoice has been paid, your franchise team will book in your installation. If groundworks are required this will also be booked at the same time.



Once your installation has been completed and the final invoice paid, HQ will send out an aftercare pack with your maintenance instructions and warranty document.

About David Samways and Mehmet Karatas

Friends for over 25 years, David Samways and Mehmet Karatas decided it was a natural step in their friendship to start their own business journey together.

Oltco’s ethos, family values and sustainable product offering struck a chord with both David and Mehmet as they feel this reflects their own passions and views. David also hopes to see his son join their team of resin bound experts and continue to grow their relationship through work.

The pair are passionate about growing Oltco across Bedford and have already produced amazing transformations across the local area.

Two friends, running a business together, with a passion for sustainability – this sounds like a great story. We know first-hand how special it is to run a business with a friend and how it’s the perfect opportunity to get to know each other even after 25 years. So, we love seeing others doing the same and choosing Oltco to begin their journey.
