In recent years, recycling has become increasingly common place, which is why Haulaway offers a complete recycling service. In addition to dealing with general waste, organics, paper and cardboard, we're proud to offer commingled recycling for commercial businesses.
What is Commingled Recycling?
Commingled recycling is the easiest way to do your bit for the environment. Most workplaces produce waste on a daily basis, with much of this being recyclable materials such as cardboard, paper, aluminium cans and plastic bottles. Instead of throwing these items in the bin along with organic waste and other unrecyclable items, they can instead be placed into a recycling bin designated to accept commingled waste. These items can then be transported off the premises to be sorted and ultimately recycled.
What Items Constitute Commingled Waste?
There are a number of items made of different materials that can be accepted in commingled recycling bins, including:
- Glass bottles and jars
- Aluminium cans
- Steel cans
- Foil containers
- Plastic bottles with the recycling codes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7
- Plastic containers with the recycling codes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7
- Paper and paper products (magazines, advertisements, flyers and newspapers)
- Cardboard boxes
- Egg cartons
There are also a number of items that you cannot put into commingled recycling bins, including:
- Plastic Bags
- Milk cartons
- Organic and garden waste
- Food waste
It is important to note that all recyclable items should be placed loosely in commingled recycling bins and not put into plastic bags.
