General Waste is anything you can’t recycle easily.

One reason it’s a top 3 hit for our customers is that we collect it in carbon-neutral vehicles.

Another is that it’s incinerated to produce green heat and electricity.

How we recycle your General Waste

  • STEP 1

    Collection

    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 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.
