Recycling

We recycle 90% of all the waste that we handle and are continuously developing new ways to recycle more.

 

The list below is just some of the materials that are removed from the mixed waste stream and recycled.

The remaining 10 % of non- recyclable waste gets sent either to a waste to energy plants or a suitably licensed landfill. 

Rubble, Bricks & Concrete

Crushed and graded to produce secondary aggregate

Rigid and film plastics

Graded and repackaged for reuse

Plaster board and other gypsum based products

Soils

Where possible graded and screened for re-use in landscaping and land remediation projects

Cardboard and paper

Wood

Metals
