What happens in a materials recycling facility?
Our mixed recycling collection service means you can put paper, cardboard, cans and plastic bottles together in the same container – a convenient and easy way for your business to recycle more.
Mixed recyclables are taken to materials recycling facilities to be sorted, before being baled and sent on to be made into new products.
As well as mixed recyclables, we collect recycling in single streams. This is useful when you produce a large volume of a single type of material – such as paper, cardboard, metal, glass, plastic and wood – and can place it in dedicated containers for that material type.
