Mixed Recycling is all the dry things your business throws away.
That’s around 90% of rubbish for most businesses - but what you might not know is that it’s cheaper to recycle these materials than to dispose of them with general waste. And better for the planet too!
Drop your dry mixed recycling materials in a sack or in a dedicated mixed recycling bin. No need to sort, our high tech Sacktory® facility takes care of it. Yes, it's that simple: put paper, cardboard, plastic or metal in the same sack and we do the sorting.

How our Dry Mixed Recycling service works
Mixed recycling sacks or bins are collected from outside your business.
All mixed recycling materials are then taken to our depot where they are separated at our award-winning sack-sorting facility, the Sacktory®.
Once sorted, the mixed recycling sacks are taken to a local Materials Recovery Facility (MRF).
The MRF opens the sacks and separates the recyclable material, which is baled and sent on to specialist facilities.
Each material is recycled back into new products, such as office paper, plastic bottles, drinks cans and newspapers.
Our Mixed Recycling service is the easiest way for your company to manage its business recycling waste whilst reducing its impact on the environment. And helps you save money too, because recycling services are cheaper than general waste.
