New business waste regulations are coming shortly …
As from January 2015, new UK Waste Regulations will require businesses to separate materials that can be recycled such as paper, card, plastics, glass and metal from other waste. This EU Waste Framework Directive amendment will mean that you will be required by law to separate your recyclable material.
Will this affect your business and what do you need to do?
In order to be compliant you will need to have your paper, card, plastics, glass and metal collected separately from other waste. If we are already collecting your recycling separately from your other waste in our Mixed Recycling sacks then you do not have to do anything as you are already compliant. You just need to simply continue to put your business waste of paper, card, plastics, glass and metal into our Mixed Recycling Sacks and all of your other non-recyclable items and food waste into General Waste or Food Recycling Sacks.
What to do if you are not currently recycling?
In order to be compliant with the new business Waste Regulations you may need to begin the recycling process and we will get in touch in good time to explain what you need to do and how we can help. You can find out more about the services we offer for recycling on our website but we suggest the easiest way is to set up a Mixed Recycling service alongside your general waste or food recycling service. You will be pleased to know that Mixed Recycling services are lower cost than General Waste so this will also reduce your costs.
If you want to find out more or if you are unsure about any of this information, we would be more than happy to talk through your options or explain it further.
