Recycling Equipment

Our wide range of handling systems and up-to-date equipment will benefit you by:

  • Easing the storage and collection.
  • Reducing the amount of time you spend in preparing the materials for recycling.
  • Ensuring the efficient use of space.
  • Saving you money.

The collection process

All materials collected are returned to our site for onward processing where they are a weighed and a computerised weighbridge ticket produced. Next, the materials are sorted, if required, baled and transported out to paper and/or plastics processors in the UK and overseas.

We have numerous collection methods available and can offer a flexible, tailor made solution to your requirements. Below are just a few examples of the collection methods and equipment available:


Our fleet of specialised vehicles supports our collection service and includes:

  • Arctic lorries and trailers (many with walking floors) for collection of bales/pallets of materials.
  • A fleet of roll-on/roll-off container lorries that are on the road throughout the week exchanging skips.
  • Municipal dustcarts that specialise in the exchange of wheelie bins and the collection of loose materials. Designated collection rounds ensure regular calls and pickups.
  • Lorries (7.5 tonne) for the collection of palletised materials, cages, confidential shredding, office paper, travel brochures, printers waste, magazines/brochures etc.
