GLASS PLASTIC RECYCLING SERVICES LONDON

Every 1,000 kg of waste glass recycled into new items saves 315 kilograms of carbon dioxide being released into the atmosphere.

It takes 70% less energy to make paper from recycled material than it does to make paper from raw materials.

It is better to squash plastic bottles before recycling so that they occupy less space in the recycling boxes and conveyors.

Nothing should be left behind in the bottles, so that their recycling is not rejected by the recycling facility.

PLASTICS & BOTTLE RECYCLING

What Happens to the Plastic Bottles Recycled?

Producing plastic bottles from raw materials is very resource and energy intensive.  By reusing and recycling plastic bottles as much as we can, we can help to conserve natural resources, such as oil.

Plastic bottles are sorted out according to the type of plastic they are made from (polymer type) and colour.  The Materials Recycling Facility in Smallmead sorts the plastic bottles and bales them, ready to be sent to reprocessors for recycling.

Plastic is then either melted down directly and formed into a new shape, or flaked and then melted down.  A wide range of products can be made from recycled plastic, including new plastic bottles, garden furniture, water butts, compost bins and fleece jackets/jumpers.  In fact it only takes 25 two litre plastic bottles to make an adult sized fleece.

Why Recycle Paper & Cardboard?

The paper and cardboard you recycle is sorted at a Materials Recycling Facility before it is sent to reprocessors.  Paper and cardboard is sorted into different grades (depending on quality) before it is sent on to be recycled.

The Materials Recycling Facility sorts paper into three grades - brown cardboard, mixed paper/cardboard, and newspaper/magazines.  The brown cardboard is baled before it is sent off for reprocessing.  The mixed paper/card and newspaper/magazines are sent to reprocessors in their loose form.

The next step in the recycling process is to add water to create a pulp.  The pulp is screened to remove any contaminants, such as paper clips and staples, and washed to remove glues (for example the glue from envelopes).  Ink is also removed from the paper and cardboard during the washing process.

Once the pulp is clean, it is ready to be turned into a new product.  The newspaper/magazines sent for recycling are turned back into recycled newsprint.  In fact it takes just seven days for a newspaper to be recycled and be turned back into new newsprint, ready to be printed on again.  The lower grade mixed paper and cardboard are recycled into a number of cardboard based packaging products.

Recycling saves energy too - it takes 70% less energy to make paper from recycled material than it does to make paper from raw materials.

Glass & Bottles Recycling

Glass waste is separated by chemical composition, and then, depending on the end use and local processing capabilities, might also have to be separated into different colors.  Many recyclers collect different colors of glass separately since glass retains its color after recycling.  The most common types used for consumer containers are colorless glass, green glass, and brown/amber glass.

Glass makes up a large component of household and industrial waste due to its weight and density.  The glass component in municipal waste is usually made up of bottles, broken glassware, light bulbs and other items.  Adding to this waste is the fact that many manual methods of creating glass objects have a defect rate of around forty percent.  Glass recycling uses less energy than manufacturing glass from sand, lime and soda.

Every metric ton (1,000 kg) of waste glass recycled into new items saves 315 kilograms (690 lb) of carbon dioxide from being released into the atmosphere during the creation of new glass.  Glass that is crushed and ready to be remelted is called cullet.

Footnote:

In the United Kingdom, the waste recycling industry cannot consume all of the recycled container glass that will become available over the coming years, mainly due to the colour imbalance between that which is manufactured and that which is consumed.  The UK imports much more green glass in the form of wine bottles than it uses, leading to a surplus amount for recycling.

The use of recycled glass as aggregate in concrete has become popular, with large scale research being carried out at Columbia University in New York.  This greatly enhances the aesthetic appeal of the concrete.  Recent research findings have shown that concrete made with recycled glass aggregates have shown better long term strength and better thermal insulation.

  • Glass in insulation products
  • Glass in ceramic sanitary ware production
  • Glass as a flux agent in brick manufacture
  • Glass in astroturf and related applications (e.g. top dressing, root zone) material or golf bunker sand
  • Glass in recycled glass countertops
  • Glass as water filtration media
  • Glass as an abrasive
  • Glass as an aggregate

Glass, plastics, cardboard and paper waste are collected from premises as described in our 'Load and Go' collections below.  We always clean up after loading waste for clients as part of the service.

A FREE check on your current waste collection requirements can provide you with a cost saving waste disposal system.  And of course we are very often able to provide 'same day' collections, as our trucks are generally in and around London most days of the week.

We also operate a very popular 'one-off' service - 'Load and Go' collections in London where helpful drivers and crew load a client's rubbish into our truck while you wait.  This is a very popular service in the city of London where parking restrictions are in force most days and skip hire is expensive because you require a permit.

RECYCLING

We are currently recycling all rubbish and waste.  Up to 75% of all the waste we collect is currently being recycled.

All waste materials, whether they are solid, liquid, gaseous or radioactive fall within the remit of waste management.

Recycling Glass & Plastic Bottles!

BENEFITS OF RECYCLING:

Recycling is the process of collecting and processing materials that would otherwise be thrown away as trash and turning them into new products. 

WE ALSO COLLECT METAL WASTE FOR RECYCLING

Metal recycling is very important as it takes less energy(heat) to produce new metal than smelting techniques.

We also collect and buy scrap metal.

Environment Agency

Environment Agency Approved

We are licensed UK waste carriers.

All waste is transported and disposed of legally and safely.  This includes transporting waste whilst travelling from job to job, to a storage place for disposal later or to a waste disposal company or waste site.

PRICES

It is not always possible to give precise prices without discussing a client's needs.  Prices will vary according to location, size of load and the nature of the waste to be collected.  However, please call us and we will endeavor to give a close estimate of the charges that will be incurred and we promise that the best possible prices will be applied.

If you require regular waste collections we can negotiate a cost saving scheme at a reduced tariff.
