It is tidy-up time! Although there is often advice on day-to-day household rubbish, it can sometimes be tricky to know what to do with more obscure items.
What can you do with hangers? What about old electrical items?
As well as our own website, Recycle Now is a fantastic resource, which includes a handy 'search' feature, where you can search for an item and discover how best to recycle it!
One of the biggest challenges we face as a business that seeks to sort and extract recyclable materials, is contamination. The more householders and businesses follow these guidelines, the less contamination we have to deal with. Ultimately, this helps achieve a purer end-product and savings that can be passed back to our clients.
Mark Penny, Commercial Manager, said: “Putting the right waste into your recycling is important as doing so leads to less contamination – therefore more materials can be recycled rather than rejected.
“We think that this is a fantastic resource to help people through what can sometimes be a tricky decision of what items goes where, even quite obscure ones!”
J&B Recycling processes over 200,000 tonnes of waste every year from businesses and households across the North East of England. Check out our video below about how materials are processed and sorted at our facility, or visit and subscribe to our YouTube channel for more hits and tips.
