Bywaters sends zero waste direct to landfill, finding other solutions for non-recyclable waste. We send anything that can’t be productively reused or recycled to Energy from Waste facilities, feeding power back into the National Grid.
Our pledge to send zero waste to landfill is a large part of our commitment to sustainable waste management. That’s why, even with general or non-recycling waste, we find alternative methods of disposal that do not have such an impact on the environment and provide tangible benefits.
All general and non-recycling waste is processed through a Energy from Waste facilities, incinerating the material instead of sending it to take up valuable space at landfill. The energy generated from this process is fed back into the National Grid, meaning your waste will be used to power the UK instead of occupying valuable land.
It’s reused one way or another. Zero waste direct to landfill means just that; our commitment is to provide the most sustainable waste management solutions possible, and wherever we can we salvage any waste for reuse before sending bales to be recycled or incinerated for energy.
Generally anything that cannot be put into a DMR (Dry Mixed Recycling) bin is what is to be placed in the Non-recycling. This however is on sites only capable of segregating into two waste streams. Larger clients and buildings will be able to segregate materials more accurately, for instance with specialised coffee cup bins.
Generally no, unless you’re looking to dispose of items that would be dangerous to handle or incinerate. Examples of these types of waste would be hazardous or radioactive waste, which require segregation before collection due to the difficulties associated with handling them.
Essentially, if you’re not producing hazardous waste or disposing of batteries, then you should be able to put all non-recyclable waste that your business produces into your general waste bins.
