Tailored solutions just for you

You're in safe hands with us..

The journey of your waste

1

When we arrive, we'll assess your waste and decide whether it is is suitable for upcycling or recycling.

2

This is why you might see them taking photos of some of the waste to ensure we can correctly categorise it.

3

Once we know what type of waste we have on the vehicles, we will select an appropriate Waste Transfer Station, often achieving 100% landfill diversion.

4

Using our extensive database of licensed Waste Transfer Stations we will route the vehicles to the most appropriate disposal location.

5

Our compliance team checks the licenses of all disposal locations meaning you know the waste is being properly handled.

6

Because we don’t subcontract any of our clearances, we can track the waste from when it is collected all the way to the Waste Transfer Station.

Considerations when we select a Transfer Station

Waste stream onboard
We will consider what types of waste we have collected and where they can best be recycled

Traffic and driving time
We assess the overall environmental benefit to ensure maximum landfill diversion with minimal carbon footprint

Next collection location
Our routes are always optimised to keep driving distance to a minimum

Recycling percentage
We will transfer your waste to the optimal location based on recycling rates and driving distance

This allows us to limit our carbon footprint while maximising landfill diversion.

Once the waste has been transferred, it will be further sorted. The first priority will be re-use, which could mean some items going to a local charity shop or re-use partner. After this and depending on the waste stream the waste will go through a picking line or be tromelled. Where possible, most of the waste will be recycled at this point, particularly metals, plastics, woods, paper & card. Items which cannot easily be separated or black bag waste will usually be prepared for RDF. Only a very small amount of waste we remove will be taken to landfill and in many areas the percentage is 0%.
