Get started with recycling

Biffa recycles over 10 billion plastic items every year and in the last year we have increased capacity to recycle even more. When we recycle material in the UK, it means less new materials are needed to be shipped in to make new products which reduces carbon emissions. 

In order to do this, everyone needs to work together. Businesses of all sizes have a part to play. For example, in order to process recycling, Biffa needs to have the right materials in the right condition. If you and your colleagues are ready to take the next step, to start or grow your business recycling, putting the right materials in the right bin, and ensuring what goes in is free from contamination is a good place to begin. Recycle Week is a great time to get started.    

There are simple things any business can try to avoid wishcycling, reduce contamination and reduce the amount of packaging waste. Our How-To videos provide helpful hints to get you started and to improve your recycling activity. Small steps lead to big change when everyone takes them.
