If you were to ask this question a few decades ago, the answer would have been the local landfill, where everything was simply buried on a vacant plot of land, yet today sees a very different scenario. Some waste management companies recycle as much as 90% of all the waste collected, an impressive figure by anyone’s standards, and they recycle the following:
- All forms of paper & cardboard
- All types of plastic, foam and polystyrene
- Ferrous and non-ferrous metals
- Green garden waste
The waste is sorted when it first arrives at the yard, then the waste is sent to a relevant recycling plant. The very small amount of waste that cannot be recycled is responsibly disposed of in a landfill.
Affordable and Environmentally Responsible
Hiring affordable skips in York is the eco-friendly way to handle any waste you generate, and if we all adopt these practices, perhaps we will see an improvement in our planet’s health. We have only really made an effort to reduce our negative impact on the environment for a few decades, and with a vast majority of domestic and commercial waste now recycled, things are looking better.
If you should need a skip for any reason, a Google search is the best way to find a local provider, and make sure the skip hire firm adopts eco-friendly practices, and you can rest assured that your old furniture, broken appliances and even garden waste, will all be recycled. The skip hire company will even help you if you need a local council permit to temporarily site the skip near your property, and with a prompt and efficient service, your waste will be reused by someone somewhere, which is a nice thought.
