Our mixed recycling service lets you safely and easily recycle dry mixed materials. We offer flexible collections from fortnightly or weekly, up to twice a week.
We have a range of bin sizes and if you're not sure what size bins to choose we can help you. If space is a problem you can have sacks for recycling.

What happens to your mixed recycling?
Materials are collected and sent to a Materials Recovery Facility (MRF), where they are sorted and sent to different manufacturers for repurpose.
Recycled materials are made into new products that are used here in the UK; for example, all newsprint is now made from 100 per cent recycled paper. The UK also exports recyclable materials to other countries, too.
