Recycling & Waste Management
At Skip It Recycling, we have a responsibility to ensure we recycle and reuse as much of the volume of materials we receive as possible. When waste is collected from a customer, it is taken to our Waste Material Transfer Facility. Here, the waste is separated and sorted into different grades of material types – anything which can be recycled or reused is processed accordingly. The minimum amount of non-recyclable materials are then sent to landfill. While landfill has historically had a role to play in waste management, it is now the last resort in terms of disposing of waste materials as it has such a devastating impact on the environment.
If you are a regular producer of waste material, you may wish to choose specific skips for the collection of different material types. These skips can then be collected and recycled as and when necessary.
