What is commercial recycling?
Commercial recycling involves collecting waste material from businesses and recovering them to our Harewood Whin waste transfer and recycling centre. Here commercial waste is separated and sorted, before being treated and repurposed into new, usable materials. At Yorwaste, we have the facilities and the expertise to handle all manner of commercial waste, including the following:
Commercial Liquid Waste Recycling
Liquid waste can refer to anything from organic oils and grease, through collated sludge deposits and sewage, to hazardous chemicals and tainted wastewater from industrial processes. We supply tankers with specialist suction equipment to collect your liquid waste, taking it to our own recycling facility for treatment and processing.
Commercial Dry Mixed Recycling
Dry mixed waste covers a whole range of commonly discarded items that are better recycled than sent to landfill. These include plastic bottles, drink cans, tins of food, paper, magazines, card, cardboard, and more. In a work environment, these items soon build up. So long as your team deposits them in the appropriate recycling container, our team will collect, sort them, and send them on for recycling.
Much of our glass recycling materials come from the hospitality industry, including hotels, B&Bs, pubs, clubs, and more. Really, anywhere that routinely disposes of large quantities of glass, be it in the form of empty bottles or broken glassware. We have access to a wide network of commercial glass recycling centres that will see your discarded glass back in action.
Commercial Food Waste Recycling
We collect commercial food waste from retail outlets, eating establishments, and food production premises. This typically comprises unsold food, as well as peelings, off-cuts, and other food waste. These are taken to local anaerobic digestion, where they are converted into biofuel – a valuable source of renewable energy.
Commercial Wood Waste Recycling
Commercial wood waste comes from manufacturing processes, the forestry and arboriculture industry, and the building trade. We collect any waste wood, shredding what we can into wooden chips for recycling and biomass fuel purposes.
Bespoke Commercial Recycling Solutions
Of course, many companies produce more than one type of commercial waste that they need to send for recycling. Here at Yorwaste, our experienced team puts together hand-tailored packages to meet the unique commercial recycling needs of your business. We work with you to create a solution that is both efficient and cost-effective.
Benefits of commercial recycling
There are many benefits to taking out a commercial recycling package with Yorwsate. These are some of the most important ones, based on extensive feedback from our customers.
Of course, the main benefit of commercial recycling is that it lets you do your bit for the environment. At present, a little over half of all waste produced in the UK ends up in landfills, where it is left to rot. Environmentally responsible businesses should do all they reasonably can to get those numbers down.
Removal of waste material
From a practical point of view, your commercial recycling package with Yorwaste also includes a collection of your waste material. Whatever waste you produce, letting it build up on company premises is both a fire risk and a general health and safety hazard. Better by far to have it picked up on a regular schedule by trained professionals.
An all-in-one commercial recycling solution
Whether your company produces one type of commercial waste or several different varieties, we can provide a complete commercial recycling package. Following your initial waste audit, our experts will work out the best solution for you.
