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


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

  • STEP 2


    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


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

  • STEP 4


    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


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