rubbish skips where does all the waste go to

29 Mar 2010

Rubbish skips have come a long way…

Back in the day, most waste was chucked in the skip and sent straight to landfill. Easy…but not environmentally sound. With landfills near to bursting point, there was a need to do something else with the waste. That’s why most waste that now gets thrown in to skips gets recycled. All waste gets separated – metal, glass, rubble, paper and green waste can all be recycled. Some waste, like food waste and certain plastics are sent to landfill – but this accounts for a small percentage of overall waste.

So next time you hire a skip, make sure you book with a company who can boast high recycling wastes – think green!
