Recycling Your Waste; Why Is It Important?
Climate change is quite literally changing the world around us. It is arguably one of the most serious threats to the human species. According to information from NASA since the late 19th century, the planet’s average surface temperature has increased by approximately 1.1 degrees Celsius!
As a professional waste management company, we understand that our actions and our services have the potential to negatively impact the planet and the environment around us. We understand that as a professional waste management company, we have a responsibility to minimise any harmful effects that may occur as a result of our activities. Irresponsible disposal of waste can cause many different environmental problems. It can result in air pollution, land pollution and could also cause numerous different health conditions. For example, when people consider pollution and greenhouse gasses, they often think of carbon dioxide being released into the air. However, with regards to global warming and climate change, methane is a much more powerful heat-trapping gas than carbon dioxide. Methane counts for 20% of all greenhouse gas emissions and the gas is released when food waste rots in landfill, waste which could instead be recycled through a food waste recycling solution.
However, recycling isn’t just important for the planet; it’s also a fantastic way to save money. For example, landfill tax and gate fees can quickly add up to a significant sum, however recycling fees are often significantly lower than landfill fees, in fact recycling could transform your waste into a revenue generator.

What Waste Items Can Be Recycled?
Lots of different items of waste can be recycled, this includes but is not limited to things such as:
- Aerosol Cans
Typically made from either tinplated steel or aluminium (both of which are recyclable), aerosol cans are perfect candidates for recycling services are their non-metal components can be easily extracted in the recycling process, providing they are completely empty before disposal.
- Chemical Wastes
Some times of chemical wastes can be recycled; however as chemical waste have the potential to harm health or the environment they require a specialised hazardous waste disposal solution. For example, with an oily sludge waste, our team can provide a specialist treatment service to recover as much oil and water from the sludge as possible, which both helps to keep environmental and monetary costs as low as possible.
- Electrical Items
If an item of waste is classified as WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electrical Equipment), it requires a specialist disposal service by law. This is because extra steps and special waste recycling and disposal techniques are required in order to effectively recycle the electrical and electronic waste. Additionally, some items of electrical waste can also contain harmful chemicals, so it is very important that these chemicals do not enter the general waste stream, such as arsenic, cadmium, lead and mercury.
Paper is another widely recyclable material; however it is only recyclable when it is clean. An easy way to check is paper is recyclable is to scrunch the paper, if it doesn’t spring back – you can recycle it.
