Recyclate Processing

Cumbria Waste Group provides a range of recyclate processing services.

We have over 25 years’ experience of advising our customers on the best way to recycle the material they produce as a business.

Primarily, the waste we recycle on behalf of our customers consists of metal cans/tins, plastic bottles, cardboard, paper and glass.

Our state-of-the-art recycling facilities enable us to sort and separate the material we receive. Some customers segregate their waste themselves before it arrives at our sites. This makes it even easier to process because the ‘cleaner’ the material, the more value it has.

We can also provide on-site balers for those who generate large amounts of waste. These balers can help to reduce transport costs because we need to make less vehicle movements to collect waste.

The majority of recyclates we process can be turned directly back into their original product, so a plastic bottle can become a plastic bottle again. This is an excellent example of closed loop recycling.
