"Real Recycling is about maximising the economic, environmental and social benefits
Take the right steps with Real Recycling
of recycling for everyone, from local council tax payers to the national and global reprocessing industries."
The Campaign for Real Recycling is concerned that collection systems that gather a range of different materials in one bag or bin and then compact them could permanently undermine the environmental and economic benefits of recycling. We agree, co-mingled collections, operated by many of our competitors, leads to contamination in the waste stream and this reduces the purity and quality of the traded commodity and thereby the value of the recycling loops. Currently there is very little protection from misleading marketing claims regarding recycling percentages which is a huge problem in the waste industry
The lowest common denominator approach of co-mingled waste is not for us, that is why we encourage all our customers to sort at source and provide a wide range of colour co-ordinated bins which makes real recycling very easy. Join the campaign, let’s redefine recycling together and enjoy the benefits of highly separated collections – the environment and the economy will thank us.
