Recycling can be split into two core categories: dry mixed recycling and single stream recycling. Whereas dry mixed recycling is a good option for when it’s not practical to separate recyclables materials, single stream recycling is better when large quantities of recyclable materials are being produced, such as cardboard, paper and plastic.

When it comes to managing your recyclable waste, Zest Recycle will identify the most effective solution tailored to your individual needs.

As commercial and industrial recycling experts, you can trust Zest Recycle to really get to know your business. We’ll analyse your recycling waste streams and waste processes, ensuring that any opportunity to streamline your recyclable waste is capitalised on.

Recycling can be handled in a number of different ways depending on the types and quantity of materials present. Dry mixed recyclables generally consist of paper, carboard, plastic bottles and cans and these can be collected in internal containers, with bags transferred to external containers ready for collection and transfer to a Materials Recycling Facility for sorting and onward processing. Other recyclable materials such as glass, wood and larger quantities of paper, cardboard, plastics and metals can be collected separately and/or bulked up where appropriate to achieve a healthy rebate.

With a supply chain network of over 200 approved partners, we have access to one of the widest ranges of equipment for both your internal and external container requirements, allowing us to provide a complete solution for your waste recycling.

And it doesn’t end there, we work with our clients every step of the way, providing valuable management information and marketing support to ensure your recycling initiative is a total success.

Zest Recycle offers collaborative commercial recycling services to businesses throughout Essex, London and the rest of the UK. Want to hit your recycling targets and put the squeeze on waste? Give us a call.
