Dry Mixed Recycling
Dry recyclables is the modern description of waste that is free from contaminants, such as food or garden waste, leaving clean materials such as paper, cardboard, plastic bottles, drinks cans and glass bottles to be sorted and recycled. All sorted materials will be sent to an approved re-processor known as a Mrf (Materials Recovery Facility) for recycling where it is separated, either by hand or by machine.
The Environment Agency of England & Wales have designated a waste hierarchy to assist businesses with understanding their duties under the law.
The basics are these:
You must consider all other options before you dispose of waste.
Consider these 5 steps in order.
- Prevent – use fewer and less hazardous materials, and use things for longer.
- Recover – anaerobic digestion or incineration for energy recovery.
- Dispose – landfill and incineration without energy recovery.
You may use this waste hierarchy tool to help your business take these steps.
Please remember It is illegal to mix a hazardous waste with either non-hazardous or another hazardous waste.
Dry Mixed Recycling is now very common throughout the UK and collections are available in many sizes of containers. For small collections the entire range of wheelie bins are available from 240Ltr, 360Ltr, 660Ltr to 1100Ltr if storage permits. For medium sized businesses that generate higher volumes of waste on a regular basis 6yrd or 8yrd FEL skips can be used. For industrial volumes compactors tend to be more appropriate allowing for a reduction in haulage costs.
Due to the value and weight of the Dry Mixed Recycling collection, and the ever increasing Landfill Tax, you can expect cost savings to be 20% - 50% lower than that of a respective sized general waste collection.
