What Materials Can Be Recycled in a Commercial Setting?

Here are the key materials that can be recycled in a commercial environment

  • Paper and Cardboard: From office paper and printer cartridges to cardboard and newspapers, recycling paper products helps conserve resources and minimize landfill waste. In the UK, approximately 80% of paper is recycled annually.
  • Plastic: Commercial settings often have recyclable plastics like bottles, cups, containers, and plastic wrapping. Proper sorting and recycling of various plastic types contribute to waste reduction and the promotion of a circular economy.
  • Glass: Easily recyclable, glass jars, drink bottles, plates, and cups can be processed to create new glass products. Recycling glass conserves resources and minimizes landfill waste.
  • Metal: Aluminium cans, steel cans, and metal scraps are common recyclable materials found in commercial settings. Recycling metal helps preserve natural resources and reduces environmental pollution.

In addition to these materials, commercial settings can also recycle other waste types, including food waste, garden waste, and general waste. Partnering with a professional waste management company ensures efficient recycling and proper waste disposal, aligning with environmental regulations and best practices.
