At Simply Waste, we think differently about the waste you produce. Instead of something that has reached its end, we view it as a valuable resource that is just about to begin its second life.
The starting point of ensuring that your business minimises the amount of waste produced, and maximises its recycling potential, begins with understanding the make-up of your waste streams and then matching this with the most appropriate containers.
We service all types of customers and collect all types of waste, so we’re certain to have a solution to meet your needs. If your waste needs are complex, then we’re here to provide advice and guidance but you can also use our interactive service guide below that will give you all the information you’ll need to match the right containers to the types of waste you produce.
If you’re unsure of what waste material goes into what type of bin, please consult our Waste Directory which lists, alphabetically, almost 300 different waste types, how they can be disposed and whether they are recyclable.

Residual Waste is the term we use for materials that are not easily recyclable. These can include things such as hard plastics, sweet and crisp wrappers, polystyrene and soiled food wrapping. Residual waste is prevalent in all businesses, but should, where possible, take second place to a Dry Mixed Recycling collection system.
Even though this waste is not recycled we can still guarantee that none of it will ever go to landfill. The treatment process that we use means your residual waste has a chance at a second life. The energy created from this process powers homes and business in areas local to the treatment facility.
Dry Mixed Recycling (DMR) is made up of four main recyclables; cardboard, paper, plastic bottles and aluminium or steel cans. These various materials in their many forms can be mixed together in one container that will be sorted at a Materials Recycling Facility.
The acceptance criteria for Dry Mixed Recycling has been tightened up considerably recently due to instability in the recycling markets. As such we can only accept the items mentioned above in our DMR containers.
We can offer posters and guides to help you and your employees ensure the purity of your recyclables. Recycling offers benefits to your business in terms of financial savings and the more obvious rewards it affords our environment.
Food Recycling is a great way to lessen the impact that your business activities have on the wider environment. Did you know that for every tonne of food that goes into landfill, four tonnes of Green House Gases are released into the atmosphere as it degrades? The process of recycling food produces power, fuel and compost that is used widely in the agriculture industry. Ideally suited to businesses that produce a lot of waste food, our bins can be used to dispose of plate scrapings, offcuts, meat, fish, primary packaged food, dairy products, fruits and vegetables to name a few things.
Our Glass Recycling service lets you recycle mixed glass bottles and jars, reducing the strain on your residual waste stream. Glass Recycling is usually used in conjunction with our Residual or Dry Mixed Recycling services and compliments the waste management system of any business that produces glass waste. As the waste industry moves toward a greater focus on container weights this service is a real benefit to businesses that produce lots of glass.
Single stream recycling is waste resource management in its purest form. Containers dedicated to taking a one type of recyclable material can attract lower prices as it improves recovery rates from the bins. These single stream containers are ideal for paper, cardboard, plastic and metal. The major benefit for single stream recycling comes in the form of compliance. If you segregate materials at your business then you are protecting your waste resource management system against future legislative changes. Please contact us if you are interested in initiating a single stream recycling solution.
At Simply Waste Solutions we offer holistic waste management through our Trinity Hybrid model of self-delivered services, outsourced ancillary services and specialist reprocessing.
