What Happens To My Collected Mixed Recycling?

Once we’ve collected your mixed recycling, we will take it to a dedicated recycling facility. Here, your waste will go through a streamlined process:

  1. Sorting and separation – Clever technology and manual sorting are used to separate paper, plastics, metal and glass. This segregation ensures your waste can be properly recycled.
  2. Cleaning – The materials are washed to remove any contaminants, like food residue or dirt. This means the recycled materials are of a high quality for the next step.
  3. Processing – Each type of material is processed differently. For example, paper is pulped, metals are melted, and plastics are shredded into small flakes. This transformation prepares them for manufacturing.
  4. Manufacturing new products – These processed materials are then used to create new products. Recycled paper might become newspaper or packaging material, plastic flakes can be transformed into plastic bottles or bags, and metals might be used in automotive parts or construction materials.

We’re deeply committed to environmental protection. That’s why we make sure that 99% of the waste we collect stays out of landfills. Of this, 43% is recycled, while 56% is transformed into renewable energy. When you opt for NRC, you’re choosing a mixed recycling waste management expert who truly values sustainability.
