The amount of waste Britain produces continues to increase year on year. Over recent years key environmental legislation has placed the onus of responsibility upon you, the waste producer. Consequently, it is now your responsibility to identify your waste and determine in what way it should be handled and treated or when possible recycled in line with the Waste Hierarchy.
In the past waste recycling has typically been associated with paper, glass and metals. However, with the development in waste recycling techniques over recent years in addition to the increases in landfill tax, it now makes economic sense to recycle waste items as opposed to landfill or incinerate them which would have previously been common practice.
At WasteCare we can collect and recycle almost any type of waste. The main items we collect and recycle are listed below – if your waste isn’t on the list get in touch and see if we can help!
