Recycling in Rotherham and Sheffield
In the UK, the recycling landscape has changed irrevocably over the past decade. Today we, as a company, adhere to some of the strictest recycling guidelines in the world and it is through these that Government targets for a better environment are achieved.
Always environmentally aware
At Dixons we understand the importance of the environment and the ways in which we, as a waste disposal company, can reduce our impact upon the planet. This is not only a legal requirement as a licensed waste carrier, but an ethical responsibility. This is why all of our processes focus on minimising our environmental impact and helping reduce the amount of waste that eventually ends up in landfill.
Our robust management of your waste
If you find that you have a large amount of waste that is recyclable then our skips can take this away for you and ensure that it is properly processed. These services are usually available for same day collection so as to provide convenient waste removal in the shortest possible time.
Our recycling processes
Many of our customers ask about what exactly happens with their waste once their skip is collected. To provide a little background on this, following collection our waste disposal team sift out the recyclables, with these primarily being Wood, Rigid Plastics, Plastic Film, Steel, Metals, Glass, uPVC Windows, Cardboard and Paper, Bricks, Rubble and Plasterboard.
These recyclables are then sent to various destinations ready to be re-processed into new items or different uses. Any waste that is left over is then sent to the landfill.
Providing peace of mind to each and every one of our clients
As an industry leading green company you can be rest assured that we understand our responsibilities and appreciate the processes that are both legally and ethically expected to be undertaken when disposing of your waste safely and legally. This provides peace of mind to both our domestic customers and commercial clients alike.
Hiring a skip: What to expect
After you’ve booked your skip, we’ll deliver it at a time and date that is suitable to you.
Where to put your skip
Most of our domestic clients place their skip on their driveway; if the skip does need to be placed on the road then you will need to pay for a permit from the Local Authority.
What you can put into your skip
Whilst we recycle all that we can from your skip, there may be items that are, as of yet, not recyclable. You can therefore place the following items into your skip: most waste from a building/office/house/factory etc., including wood, carpet, fixtures, and fittings and concrete.
You should however bear in mind that you should not place anything in the skip that is known to cause harm to the environment (specifically to humans, animals or fish).
When will your skip be collected?
Normally we will do this after 7 days but if you let us know beforehand we can collect it as and when you’re ready. If you need it picked up either earlier or later then just give us a call and we’ll do the rest, whenever possible.
