What Happens to Domestic Waste?

When you hire a skip for that home improvement and watch the truck disappear with all your waste, do you ever wonder what happens to it? The answer a few decades ago would be, “The landfill”, which was the place for everything unwanted, and we realised a while ago that dumping waste in a landfill pollutes the ground.

Eco-Friendly Waste Management

The skip hire company would be working with several agencies and at least 80% of all domestic waste is recycled, so when you are looking for cheap skips in Wolverhampton, make sure that the operator is eco0friendly.

Recycling Development

Recycling has become a mainstream industry, and the following domestic waste can now be recycled:

  • Metals
  • Batteries
  • Timber
  • Hard core and rubble
  • Green waste – grass cuttings and other gardening waste.
  • Paper and cardboard
  • All forms of plastic

Environmental Protection

Local waste management companies are associated with all the main recycling plants, and they make regular deliveries, sending a large portion of waste collected to be reused. If you have hazardous waste that you need to remove, your local skip hire provider is licensed to remove hazardous waste.

Making the World a Better Place

The global push for environmental awareness has had an amazing effect, with pollution figures falling in most countries, and as far as recycling goes, the UK is a leading European country, recycling as much as possible. Next time you order a skip, you will have the peace of mind of knowing that most of the waste gets recycled, and by energy saving at home, you can reduce your carbon footprint, something we should all strive for.
