Why us

Helping Sunderland businesses recycle

According to data from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA), in the year 2019-2020, the Sunderland City Council collected 156,296 tonnes of household waste, of which 33.5% was recycled, 7.5% was composted, and 58.9% was sent to landfill or used for energy recovery. The recycling rate in Sunderland was slightly lower than the national average of 44.7%, highlighting the need for continued efforts to improve recycling and reduce waste in the city.

With our dependable commercial waste management services, we can simplify the waste disposal process for Sunderland businesses. This implies that you don’t have to worry about ensuring that you’re recycling what you can – we take on that responsibility for you.

They worked with our team to help everyone understand what we are trying to achieve. We have since invested in new equipment and the waste management process is much more efficient – and we now recycle over 90% of our waste. The NRC team are responsive and attend site whenever we need them."
