Recycling is one of the key measures to reduce the amount of waste that we consign to landfill, and to help realise the value potential of materials hitherto described as ‘waste.’
In the management of municipal waste, recycling is very much a collaborative effort between:
- The local authorities - commissioning services and facilities for the collection of recyclable materials, and providing education, advice and support.
- The authorities’ contractors - providing the facilities and managing the services to give the public every opportunity to participate.
- The public – in making best use of the facilities and services on offer, to ensure that good quality, clean recyclables can be readily returned into the chain of utility.
Through its composting operations, the management of 17 Household Recycling Centres across the two Counties, and operation of the EnviroSort Materials Reclamation Facility, Severn Waste is at the core of the drive to maximise the resource value of recyclable waste.
