Clearaway recognise that for many companies recycling individual wastes can be difficult. We provide a mixed recycling collection service across Worcestershire, West Midlands and Birmingham. This gives our customers the opportunity to recycle paper, card, hard and soft plastics, cans and bottles in relatively small quantities.
In our experience most companies can split their general waste into mixed recycling saving money and the environment. We can provide scheduled collections for containers as small as 360 litres up to 40 Cubic Yards.
If you are a business that generates glass bottles and jars then recycling could be a cost effective option for you. Clearaway Recycling and Waste Management provides dedicated glass recycling services across Worcestershire , the Black Country and Birmingham. We provide easy to manoeuvre 240 litre and 360 litre wheelie bins emptied on a regular collection schedule.
Why recycling glass is good for your business:
- Reduces costs – Glass is significantly heavier than other general wastes and recycling will avoid the significant cost in landfill tax.
- Helps the Environment – the energy saving from recycling a single bottle will power a 100 watt lightbulb for almost an hour or a computer for 25 minutes.
- Reduces CO2 emissions – Every 100 tonnes of glass recycled saves 314 tonnes of CO2.
- Conserves the landscape – Recycling glass saves the extraction of sand from quarries conserving our natural resources.
According to WRAP we throw away more than 7 million tonnes of food and drink every year. It estimates that the UK Hospitality sector (hotels, pubs, restaurants and quick service restaurants) could save £724 million a year by tackling food waste.
Clearaway Recycling and Waste Management provide dedicated food recycling services across Worcestershire, the Black Country, West Midlands and Birmingham. We provide easy to manoeuvre 240l and 360 litre wheelie bins emptied on a regular collection schedule.
Ideally there should be no packaging in the food waste and definitely not in black plastic bags. Food waste from catering outlets in clear non-bio bags is acceptable. The food waste is delivered to an Anaerobic Digestion plant which through natural biological processes breaks down the food waste to generate a gas which is used to generate energy.
Legislation and Guidance requires waste producers to apply the waste hierarchy and recycle as much as possible. When you have recycled all that is feasibly possible there may still be some residual waste from your business which requires waste disposal. We provide a general waste collection service for this and it is either converted into Refuse Derived fuel (RDf) or into landfill.
Clearaway Recycling and Waste Management provide a range of containers from 240 litre wheelie bins through to REL containers and large 35 Cubic Yard bulk containers. Our experienced team can advise on the most suitable options.
