Commercial Waste Streams
At the Mick George Group, we recognise the significance of frequent, dependable, waste collections for your business. No matter what volume, we provide waste collection services for all types of businesses and importantly, all waste streams. No matter what it is you need, or what it is you need to get rid of, the Mick George Group are here to help.
Our responsibility is to provide you with the most efficient waste collection service possible, whether you are just needing general waste collecting, or whether you require a specialist disposal service for any given material. We’ll ensure you have the right type and size containers to match your waste volumes and the space you have available.
We tailor our collection service to your needs, always ensuring that whatever the proposed solution, it will remain cost effective, compliant and sustainable, boosting your recycling performance through enhanced material recovery.
See the range of Commercial Waste Materials that we manage below:
General Waste Collection
General waste, or otherwise known as residual waste, consists of materials from businesses that cannot be recycled. It includes materials such as non-recyclable plastics, polythene, some packaging and other materials.
Previously, this waste predominantly disposed of at landfill sites without exception, but technological developments have resulted in several alternative methods for managing general waste streams, subsequently adding value along the way, usually in the form of recoverable energy.
Collaboratively, we’ll work alongside you to make sure that you segregate as much of your waste as possible. Whenever we can, we’ll give it a new life from recycling it to creating new materials or using it to generate green energy. Waste that can’t be recycled is unavoidable, but we will always deal with it in a compliant way that reduces its impact on the environment.Book a FREE Audit Today
Dry Mixed Recycling (DMR) Collection
Our dry mixed recycling service will manage all clean commercial paper and card and dry mixed recycling, including packaging card, newspapers, drinks cans and single use plastic items such as water bottles, plastic bottles and other plastic items.
Managing DMR appropriately will help you to reduce your environmental impact through the diversion of waste from landfill, while simultaneously improving your recycling credentials, both of which will offer financial and CSR benefits.
Separating your waste streams from other materials will minimises the disposal cost of your other containers too.
The plastic, paper and card we collect is turned into valuable new materials.
Not all materials are recyclable through Dry Mixed Recycling due to contamination, for which we provide other specialist services to safely dispose of them. These include:
- Black bags
- Waxed paper cups
- Crisp packets and sweet wrappers
- Liquids, polystyrene, glass, ceramics, wood offcuts, textiles or strapping
- Hard and rigid plastics
- Containers with any residue of food or hazardous material
Glass Waste Collection
Glass is 100% recyclable without compromising quality, yet so much of it is disposed of and sent to landfill where it will never decompose.
It’s estimated that the hospitality sector discard approximately away 600,000 tonnes of glass every year, In the form of bottles, jars and drinkware.
We accept both clear and mixed glass, so there is no need to sort and separate your coloured glass, leaving you the time to focus on running your business.
Once we have collected your glass, it is sorted by colour and washed. It is then crushed and melted before being moulded into new products.
Diverting glass waste from landfill saves your business more than money. Recycling your waste glass also boosts your recycling rates, improves your corporate reputation, and avoids landfill disposal costs.
Wood Waste Collection
There is nothing more recyclable than Wood, so there’s no excuse why only 1.4m tonnes of the estimated 5m tonnes of waste wood, is recycled annually.
To help you separate out your wood waste, we have a range of containers that can be tailored to suit your business requirements, preventing your materials from ending up in landfill alongside non-recyclable waste streams.
Our service converts a waste material back into a valuable new resource that would otherwise have been landfilled.
It is either used as a feedstock for animal bedding, made into chipboard or particle board products. Lower grades of wood can be used as fuel for biomass systems to generate green electricity and low-cost heat for communities.
Segregating your waste wood will reduce the weight of your other containers, saving you money, while simultaneously improving your environmental contributions.Book a FREE Audit Today
Food Waste Collection
Regardless of sector, there’s a high possibility that your business will produce food waste of some description, contributing to the 20 million tonnes that is produced annually.
From offices with canteens to food production and food distribution outlets, we offer food waste and food recycling collections for companies of all sizes.
Once food waste is collected it is distributed to state of the art Anaerobic Digestion facilities which process and convert food waste into renewable energy. Subsequently, this helps us control, and potentially reduce, your waste costs by recycling commercial food waste into usable energy that can go into powering lights, appliances, and other electronic devices.
Alternatively, food waste will be circulated to composting centres for transformation into bio-fertiliser and soil conditioner.
Where possible, none of your food waste will go to landfill, saving you money.Book a FREE Audit Today
