What are Dry Mixed Recycling (DMR) Collections?

What can go in your Dry Mixed Recycling?

Dry Mixed Recycling is a broad term used to describe a range of different types of clean recycling waste that can easily be reused or reformed into other goods, products, or broken down into their core materials. Types of recycling, that are included under DMR, include:

Paper recycling - e.g. dry paper waste, newspapers, office paper and magazines
Cardboard – e.g. corrugated cardboard, cereal boxes and card
Metal cans – e.g. clean, empty drinks cans and food tins
Plastic – e.g. packaging films, empty drinks bottles, rinsed out milk bottles, clean salad trays, rinsed out microwaveable meal trays & margarine tubs

What can’t be recycled as part of DMR?

Of course, not all materials are recyclable through Dry Mixed Recycling, and for some there are other specialist services that are used in order to safely dispose of them. Likewise, there are certain materials that can contaminate DMR that should be avoided when sorting your recycling. Those include:

Black bags (because our drivers will not be able to see if in the bag there are recyclable materials)
Waxed paper cups (takeaway/ single-use cups from most high street coffee shop chains)
Crisp packets and sweet wrappers
Liquids, polystyrene, glass, ceramics, wood offcuts, textiles or strapping
Hard and rigid plastics (e.g. pipes, drums, window frames, other bulky/large non-compactable plastic items)
Containers with any residue of food or hazardous material (e.g. paint tins or bleach bottles)

If you are unsure about anything you want to dispose of, and want to know the best form of waste management solution for your situation, you can give us a call today to discuss your needs.
