Trade waste recycling

Why should trade waste be recycled?

Trade waste should where possible be recycled. Please contact one of the private operators below to arrange collection of recyclable items.

Why can't recyclable trade waste be collected with household recycling?

Under the 'Controlled Waste Regulations' trade waste should not be recycled using the domestic recycling facilities such as recycle points or bag and box kerbside collections even though trade waste may be recyclable.
