Lydney Skip Hire is dedicated to recycling as much waste as we possibly can. In fact, our target is to send zero waste to landfill.
We have a dedicated waste transfer station on site where all waste is categorised into materials that can and can’t be recycled.
What Materials Do We Recycle?
We recycle as much as possible and recyclable materials include:
- UK government target is for every household to recycle 50 % of all waste by 2020
- UK packaging waste recycling is on the up to 71.4% in 2016 compared to 64.7% in 2015.
- Plastic items can take up to 500 years to decompose
- Aluminium cans can go from the recycling bin to a new can within 60 days
- All steel cans are recyclable
- Using recycled materials to make products often uses less energy than using fresh raw materials
