Recycling

We're passionate about recycling. We're also committed to supporting our construction customers to fulfil their legal obligations, achieve environmental best-practice & maximise the sustainability of their businesses.

In this section

At the heart of this commitment is our industry-leading materials recovery facility (MRF) in Slyfield, near Guildford. Find out more here.

At least 98% of all the waste we handle goes on to be recycled. Unlike many of our competitors, we recycle up to 95% of the contents of our skips, roll-on roll-off containers and Grab Hire collections.

Here are some of the things we recycle and what we do with them:

Plasterboard

Plasterboard needs to be segregated from other construction waste on-site. If you’re carrying out a refurbishment or demolition project that will involve removing plasterboard, we recommend hiring a dedicated container such as one of our one-tonne Dumpy bags. We send all waste plasterboard to be recycled into new plasterboard. Contact us to find out more

Aggregates

We crush broken bricks and concrete and separate out soil from construction waste using our £1.8 million soil washing plant. We sell these materials along with high-quality building sand quarried at our Runfold site.

Wood

We chip unmanufactured timber (eg pallets) and send it to fuel power stations.

We send manufactured wood (chipboard for example) to fuel a specialist power station in the Midlands.

Metals

Our materials recovery facility separates out magnetic metals; other metals are picked out by hand. We then send it to be recycled locally.

Cabling

We separate cabling from building waste by hand and send it to a specialist company to recover the materials for recycling.

Glass

All glass waste is sent to a specialist company for recycling.

Paper & Card

Waste paper and card is transported to a factory in Kent for recycling. Most of the cardboard is exported to China and Indonesia to be remanufactured into cardboard for boxes.  
 
The majority of waste paper goes to the Netherlands where is it recycled back into paper. Dirty paper extracted from mixed waste goes to make the outer covering for new plasterboard.
 
Before sending the paper and card off to be recycled we compact it using a bailer, which ensures it takes up as little space as possible so that we can transport more at one time, reducing the impact on the environment.

Inert waste

Any inert waste is transported to our Runfold site where it is recycled through our washing plant. The resulting secondary washed aggregates are available for sale. Any other non-hazardous waste goes to a local landfill site, which is carefully controlled and monitored.

We can supply a monthly summary of all the materials that have been successfully recycled by your company. These figures will help you demonstrate to your stakeholders that your company cares about the environment. You can also use this information to support an application for ISO 14001 certification.

If you have already segregated your different waste streams, we may be able to offer you a discount.
