Dry Mixed Recycling (DMR)

Dry Mixed Recycling (DMR) Waste Collection and Management Services

Dry Mixed Recycling or DMR is a cost effective way to recycle waste. We offer DRM wheelie bin collection from your premises.

What is Dry Mixed Recycling (DMR) ?

Dry Mixed Recycling is exactly what is says on the tin. By sorting all your clean dry recyclables such as cardboard and paper, plastic, metal and glass into one container, and separating them from wet or sticky waste such as food waste, it allows us to process your waste efficiently and at a low cost. Helping both the environment and your business reduce its waste management costs.

The Benefits of DMR (Dry Mixed Recycling)

Dry mixed recycling involves sorting and separating different materials such as cardboard and paper, plastic, metal and glass. The sorted materials are then sold to manufacturers who use them to create new products. The benefits of dry mixed recycling include:

  • Reducing the amount of waste sent to landfill
  • Saving energy and resources
  • Reducing greenhouse gas emissions

The UK government has recently begun increasing the cost of landfill, and this trend is likely to continue. There has never been a better time to begin recycling and DMR is the simplest way to begin.
