Recycling - we recycle over 85% of all the waste we collect
That means the amount of waste going to Landfill is thereby reduced by 85% – a far better solution for the environment and for our customers. We are committed to growing our business by adopting a zero waste to landfill approach and maintaining a focus on finding new and improved recycling solutions.
Each year, we divert over 750,000 tonnes of waste material away from landfill to be recycled and re-used in agriculture, industry and for sustainable energy production.
Until recently, the majority of scrap metal was being exported to countries like China and India but we send these metals to the closest licensed scrap metal re-processors.
Separated and baled cardboard is sent for reprocessing. It will be used to make things like boxes and packaging, toilet rolls, stationery and animal bedding.
Plasterboard (or calcium sulphate waste) is sent to a company that shreds and screens the material, which can then be used as a soil improver on agricultural land.
We send separated and baled plastics to specialist re-processors resulting in a plastic granulate. The automotive sector uses this for the production of bumpers and dashboards.
Clean soils are either screened to produce topsoils for re-use or to restore old quarry workings back to agricultural or recreational land.
We segregate this waste before it goes to a licensed compost facility. Here, the material is shredded and placed in Windrows to compost naturally for agricultural and horticultural use
Carpet and underlay waste is sorted by fibre and pile type using infrared spectroscopy. It is shredded, baled and supplied as bulk material for things like horse bedding and horticultural barrier matting.
Our textiles are hand sorted by skilled staff. Once graded, the textiles are weighed and press-packed into bales using some the most advanced equipment available.
Glass is crushed and any contaminants removed. It is sorted by colour and mixed with raw materials. Once melted, it is moulded or blown into new jars and bottles.
WEE material is broken down into its individual components manually and recycled as either metals or plastics.
We send battery boxes housing a variety of batteries to specialists to recover the precious metals they contain such as lead, mercury, cadmium, zinc, manganese and lithium for re-use by industry.
Old tyres are shredded to create a crumb product that is used by the equestrian industry as a versatile ménage floor cover.
We are licensed to dispose of a wide range of controlled substances including paint, paint cans, oil, fuel and other automotive fluids as part of our Hazardous waste services and in accordance with strict industry regulations.
