Recycling

Why Recycling?

What can I do to improve my waste management?

By sorting and recycling your waste material such as paper, cardboard, plastics, and metal, not only will you be able to reduce your general waste costs, it could also be possible to create new revenue streams from the sale of those recovered materials.

 

There are over 20 recycling streams available to the average business in the UK including:-

Paper Metals Aerosols Organics
Cardboard Drink/Food Cans & Cartons Batteries Kitchen Waste
Confidential Waste CD’s and DVD’s Paint Printer Cartridges
Plastic Containers Furniture Bulbs/Tubes Wood
Packaging WEEE Oils Glass

Effective waste management can not only help to reduce your overall waste bill, but having some green credentials will also reflect positively in your Corporate Responsibility profile and could be an influencing factor in winning new business.
