Dry Mixed Recycling

Is your company seeking a simple recycling solution? Would you like to skip the hassle of having to separate recyclable materials, avoid confusing your employees, and save time?

Fresh Start’s dry mixed recycling collection service achieves exactly that; a straightforward process tailored to your requirements.

What is Dry Mixed Recycling (DMR)?

Dry mixed recycling describes an all-in-one solution where clean, uncontaminated recyclable materials are put in the same bin and processed later at a dedicated recycling plant.

Once there, we separate these items for reuse, or send them for recycling into other products.

At Fresh Start, that separation takes place at a cutting-edge modern facility, designed to maximise the quantity of DMR that is recycled.

What can go in a dry mixed recycling bin?

Not every type of waste is suitable for dry mixed recycling.

However, items that we collect as part of this service include:

  • Paper
  • Cardboard
  • Cans
  • Plastic

To reduce the risk of contamination, items placed inside a dry mixed recycling container should be clean.

While a major advantage of single-stream recycling is saving time because you don’t have to separate rubbish, the process will only work efficiently if you remove leftover food or liquid residues, and dry containers before they go in the bin.

What should not go in a dry mixed recycling container?

Examples of items your DMR bins should not contain include:

  • Food waste
  • Liquids
  • Hazardous waste (such as bleach bottles, paint tins or used batteries)
  • Glass
  • Crisp packets

If you are unsure whether a product qualifies as dry waste, then please don’t hesitate to ask.
