Recycling

Recycling as much as we can

What happens to my waste?

Wherever possible we use the most practical and efficient methods of separation to maximise the recycling potential off all wastes collected, with the ultimate goal of reducing the amount of waste being sent to landfill.

 

Recycling

Recycling reduces the consumption of fresh raw materials, reduces the amount of waste that goes to landfill and reduces air pollution from incineration of waste.

Recycling can also reduce green-house emissions from plastic production and can even help to support the economy by maximising the value of waste products.

Using a skip hire service can give you piece-of-mind when disposing of your waste.  Whether it is garden waste, building materials or general house clearance a reputable skip hire service will sort and recycle all of the waste on your behalf.

recycle-brick

Brick & Concrete

Bricks and concrete are broken down by crushing & transformed into new aggregate materials products. These can then be used by construction companies or other industries which are in constant need of quality building materials.
recycle-paper

Paper

Waste paper and cardboard has water added to it to create a pulp which is screened to remove any contaminants and washed to remove ink and glues. The clean pulp is turned into a new product. Lower grade mixed paper and cardboard are recycled into cardboard packaging. Newspaper and magazines recycled back into newsprint.

Soil

Clean soils including clay and chalk are used in the remediation of large areas of land. These are widely used in the construction or remodelling of golf courses.

Wood

Wood is taken to a recycling facility and sorted into high quality clean wood (Grade A) or a low quality dirty mixed wood (Grade C). Grade A wood is re-used for quality chipboard manufacture. The Grade C wood is re-used to produce lower grade chipboard.

Glass

Glass is taken for washing and then crushed into cullet, which can be used for making recycled aggregates such as "Eco-Sand", used as a paving sand under block paving and concrete slabs. EcoSand offers an effective and sustainable use for waste material and can be infinitely recycled.

Metal

All rubber, wood, plastics are removed and the scrap metal is then shredded, the metal is melted in a blast furnace at extremely high temperatures which burns off any impurities remaining from the sorting stages. The liquid metal is poured into a mold for re-use.

Garden

When garden waste is recycled it is changed into a nutrient-rich soil conditioner which can be used in a range of different applications, such as agriculture, land reclamation and as an ingredient in a lot of multipurpose compost. Most types of garden waste can be recycled, including bark, flowers, grass and hedge cuttings, leaves, plants, small branches, twigs and weeds.

Why Recycle?

Recycling reduces the consumption of fresh raw materials, reduces the amount of waste that goes to landfill and reduces air pollution from incineration of waste.

 

Recycling can also reduce green-house emissions from plastic production and can even help to support the economy by maximising the value of waste products.
