Do I need to make sure the recyclables are dry / dried out?

Yes, to enable items to be recycled, there must be no cross contamination with liquids or other waste stream.

What does DMR stand for?

DMR Stands for Dry Mixed Recycling. This is an easier way to refer to items that are recyclable, not contaminated and can be grouped together to make one specific waste type.

If I generate large amounts of cardboard, can I mix this in with my DMR?

You can mix this in, however, if you are generating large amounts, then we could look at options where you can specifically separate this waste stream and it could be aa more cost effective option for you.

Can you collect from multiple sites around the UK?

We can offer ad-hoc on-off collections and arrange ongoing regular waste services throughout the UK.

Do you provide paperwork that meets with current UK legislation?

Yes, we provide Waste Transfer notes and Hazardous Waste Consignment Notes subject to collection type. This information is permanently available for you to view and download on our customer portal.

How easy to access and use is your customer portal?

Extremely simple to use, we have recently carried out a survey (December 2022) on the ease of use and accessibility of our portal amongst over 2000 customers and we didn’t receive a single negative comment. The feedback received was a mix of 4 and 5 stars.

How do I arrange regular and ad-hoc collections?

Regular collections are arranged at the outset of your agreement and are logged on to our customer portal with a start and end date. You will then be able to view the agreed collection dates during the entire service. Ad-hoc collections can be arranged via our customer portal, email or the trusted way of phoning in to our customer services team who will then arrange the service quickly and efficiently.

We had great difficulty contacting our current/previous provider whenever there was an issue and had very long waiting times. We felt that we were not valued customers. How is your customer services rated?

Our fully trained customer services team are trained to handle any issues. We do not have extremely long waiting times and usually answer the phone within a few moments. We take great old-fashioned care in looking after our customers, and therefore we retain them. Try us and see.
