General Waste is anything you can’t recycle.

It might be a product made of a material not yet recyclable or from a mix of different materials that can't be separated for recycling - or simply heavily contaminated waste.

One reason why our general waste service is a top 3 hit for our customers is that we collect it in carbon-neutral vehicles.

Another is that whatever can't be recycled it’s safely incinerated to produce green heat and electricity.

In other words, even general waste can help your business leaving a green footprint because nothing ends up in the landfill.

How we recycle your General Waste

  • STEP 1

    Collection

    General waste sacks and bins are collected from outside your business.

  • STEP 2

    Sorted

    All materials are then taken to our depot where they are sorted from other streams at our award-winning sack-sorting facility, the Sacktory®.

  • STEP 3

    Transported

    The general waste sacks are taken to an Energy from Waste facility.

  • STEP 4

    Processed

    Electricity and heat is captured from this process. Electricity is sent to the National Grid and heat is used to provide heating and hot water to over 100,000 UK homes.

  • STEP 5

    Re-used

    The bottom ash by-products from this is reused as aggregate for construction.
