What Happens to Your Rubbish After Removal?

At Taylors Skip Hire, we are committed to responsible waste management, ensuring that the rubbish we collect from our clients in Surrey and Sussex is handled in an environmentally conscious manner. Once we remove rubbish from your site, it embarks on a journey through sorting, recycling, and, when necessary, landfilling, although our goal is always to minimise landfill use. Here's a closer look at the processes involved after we collect your waste.

  • Journey to Our Recycling Station: The first stop for your rubbish after collection is our dedicated picking and recycling station located in Horley. Here, waste from our skip hire and rubbish removal services is brought in for initial processing. This facility is the heart of our operation where we start the separation and sorting process.
  • Sorting and Separation: Upon arrival at our recycling station, rubbish is meticulously sorted. This process is partly mechanised, with conveyor belts and magnets separating metals, while other materials are sorted manually by our trained staff. We separate recyclables such as plastics, glass, metals, and paper from non-recyclable materials. Effective sorting is crucial as it directly impacts the volume of waste that can be recycled and reduces the amount destined for landfills.
  • Recycling Process: Recyclable materials are then processed according to their types. Metals are sent to smelters, plastics are sent to recycling facilities to be melted down and remoulded, and organic waste, such as garden debris, is processed into compost. Our efforts ensure that each type of material is recycled in the most efficient and environmentally friendly way possible.

Our goal is to minimise the amount of waste that reaches landfill sites. By maximising the amount of waste recycled, we not only conserve natural resources but also reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants caused by landfilling. The residual waste that cannot be recycled and is deemed non-hazardous is compacted and transported to landfill sites where it is managed to mitigate environmental impact.

We believe in continuous improvement and are always looking for innovative ways to increase our recycling rates and reduce waste. We also work to educate our customers on best practices for waste reduction and recycling to help them make informed decisions about waste management.

At Taylors Skip Hire, our commitment to environmental stewardship drives every aspect of our operations. By choosing our services, you are partnering with a company that prioritises the environment and works tirelessly to ensure that the impact of your waste on the planet is minimised.
