Tips for getting a faster and more accurate quote
Separated waste is worth more than co-mingled waste. Every year, 30% of recyclable materials are sent to landfills because they have been contaminated. For example, paper sorted from collection points is often commingled with other materials such as cans or glass. If it was separated, this could all be recycled.
Paper reprocessors need paper that has been specifically separated and are prepared to pay to get this. The same goes for companies who reprocess glass and cans. If you sort your waste, you can reduce contamination and increase value.
To help you separate your waste, you can buy recycling bags and bins. The Green Pod is a patented recycling bag and it’s great for hotels and offices. Meanwhile, the Rubbermaid Recycling trolley is excellent for the collection and storage of waste in buildings with multiple offices. Home Recycling also has a wide range of recycling bins.
