Dry mixed recycling in the construction industry commonly refers to waste which is uncontaminated. Often including paper and card products, it can also include glass; this can be in the form of packaging for building materials or miscellaneous items. These materials are easily recycled to avoid waste entering landfill and puts dry mixed materials back into the manufacturing process.

One of the largest waste components from the construction sector, it’s important that we do everything possible to avoid wood entering landfill. Whether it’s large lumber which can be reused, or scrap wood to be chipped for mulch, fuel or composite products, there are plenty of ways to recycle and reuse wood from the construction industry.

Since metal is an easy material to recycle and we ensure that all construction waste metal collected is recycled and put back into production. Helping to avoid unnecessary raw metal extraction, we take construction metal - including steel - whether it’s in the form of piping, beams or cable.

Bricks, concrete and general hardcore is a vital raw material for the construction industry. In an effort to divert this waste from landfill, we aim to collect either mixed or separated rubble and hardcore, recycling it to then be put back into use. Quality and contaminants need to be considered when assessing these materials for recycling, but we accept all rubble and hardcore for general waste disposal regardless.

Plastic waste on a construction site can range from shrink wrap used to package materials to PVC guttering and window frames. Plastic materials can be recycled by cleaning, separating and chipping down the material, creating new pellets to be used in manufacturing.

PETE, HDPE, PVC and LDPE plastics can all be recycled the majority of the time, while PP, PS and other miscellaneous plastics are not commonly recycled.

Whether it’s asbestos removed from a site, oils and fuels or fluorescent tubes, all hazardous waste needs to be disposed of legally and safely. Providing containment, packaging and documentation of your waste, we help you dispose of hazardous construction waste in the legal and proper manner.

Plasterboard from walls, ceilings and floors can be disposed of as whole boards or broken sections. All unwanted plasterboard waste can be broken down into a reusable material, avoiding the need for it to sit in landfill.

Large quantities of soil are excavated and processed each day at construction sites. Where the material is appropriate for recycling, an inspection is carried out to ensure it is uncontaminated and compliant with the criteria for acceptance. Blended in with fresh compost, the soil can then be put back into use.
