Our mixed recycling service is a greener and cheaper option for your waste.
We offer businesses a fully comprehensive and competitively priced mixed recycling service that can be individually tailored to your business needs. We also advise businesses on the best ways to reduce, reuse and recycle.
The charge for this service is cheaper than current refuse charges. On a like-for-like comparison, recycling containers are up to 30% cheaper than refuse containers.
What can go in your mixed recycling?
All recyclable materials can go in one container. No sorting means it is quick and easy for your staff to recycle.
We can take clean:
✔ Paper including office paper, magazines, newspaper, books, telephone directories and envelopes
✔ Plastics including bottles, yoghurt pots, tubs, trays and plastic bags
✔ Cardboard including cereal boxes, egg boxes and greetings cards
✔ Tins and cans including drinks and food cans, biscuit and sweet tins, empty aerosols
✔ Clean aluminium foil
✔ Cartons and Tetrapak
No thank you!
We do not take:
✗ Food waste
✗ Glass - we offer a separate glass recycling service.
✗ Large, bulky cardboard - we offer a separate bulky cardboard recycling service.
✗ Paint cans
✗ Black bags
✗ Other objects, such as cutlery and pans
Collections are made Monday to Friday, between 5.30am and 1pm. We work together with our customers to agree a collection frequency that is suitable for all parties.
We work on Bank Holidays, so your waste collection day will remain the same, except for any changes over Christmas and New Year.
If you are thinking about which container type to have, consider the following:
how much storage space you have
what access is available for emptying
how much recycling your business produces
what is the most convenient option for your business.
We offer wheeled recycling bins in 360 litres, 770 litres and 1100 litres sizes. These are charged per lift. You can have as many bins as you require for your recycling needs.
Sacks are often the most suitable option for businesses that produce varying quantities of recycling, or have no space to store a container. You can present as many or as few sacks as needed for each collection.
Blue trade waste sacks are 80 litres in size and are sold in quantities of 30. We deliver your sack order to your premises.
Additional emptying of mixed recycling containers
If your business has had a busier than usual week, or you have a planned, upcoming event, we are able to carry out additional emptying of your waste containers outside of your usual collection schedule. Please contact us arrange this.
