Many plastics cannot be recycled and are always disposed of in general skip bin. However, there is some co-mingled waste that contains recyclable materials such as:
- Plastic bottles and containers
- Glass bottles and jars
- Milk and juice containers
- Coffee cup lids
At the recycling facility, these products are separate out from the mixed waste. They are placed separately according to the type (bottles, jars, containers) and then bulked up. Once enough of them are accumulated, they are sent to manufacturers for reprocessing.
Often it is difficult to separate recyclable and non-recyclable plastic waste. In this case, we help our customers and provide them with separate recycling bins for plastics and dry mixed waste.
Many metal items cannot be recycled. It includes anything from a hole punch machine to utensils. All these items should discard in a general skip bin.
We provide a separate skip bin that is ideally designed to dispose of glass items such as glasses and piece of windows.
Ceramics, including ornaments and crockery, are also classified as general waste.
Wall covers and wallpapers also come under general waste.
All non-hazardous cleaning materials such as cleaning clothes, wet wipes, and papers towels are disposed of in general skip bins.
Many packaging materials are classed as general waste. For example bubble wraps, padded envelopes, jiffy bags, coated wrapping sheets, and polystyrene packaging.
Wafers, chips, and chocolates, sweet, and other snack wrappers are also included in general waste.
Vacuum dust is classed as general waste, and it should not be disposed of in an open environment as it can potentially become a health hazard.
