What's new

Compactor Waste

Compactor waste is now converted into two separate recycling streams. Elements that can be extracted and recycled are now removed at the Materials Recycling Facility in Northampton. The remainder of the waste is then treated and converted to be used as Refuse Derived Fuel.

Spiral bound notebooks & plastic bound documents

We can now recycle sprial bound notebooks and plastic bound documents, these can be included in the paper recycling.

For large volumes of notebooks and plastic bound documents it is suggested that you use a separate sack/s and place these in your designated waste collection point for the Porters to remove on their weekly collection.
