Handling more than just WEEE waste removals

Here at NRC, we have the skills and experience needed to carry out WEEE waste collections. Need help with a WEEE business waste removal? Get in touch with our teams today, and take a look below to find out how else we can help you.

Commercial Waste Disposal

General Waste

We’ll collect your non-recyclable items and aim to treat them in the most eco-responsible way. In the interests of transparency, you can always see how we disposed of your general waste with your service report.


Mixed Recycling

Our mixed paper, card, plastics, and metal collection services allow you to commit to your recycling goals with the minimum amount of hassle and fuss. With only a small amount of on-site sorting required by you, we’ll do all the major heavy lifting.

Cardboard Waste


If your business produces a lot of paper and cardboard waste then let us take care of collecting and recycling it for you. We can even help you to install on-site baling equipment to deliver even more cost savings for your business.

Food Waste

Food Waste

We take the food waste that your business produces and use bacteria to break it down. It’s then transformed into green electricity, fertiliser and compost. You can reduce your general waste costs by removing them from the general waste stream.

Glass Waste


Glass waste is heavy, so it can increase your general waste removal costs significantly. But by segregating it into its own bins, not only can you reduce your overall waste management costs, but it enables us to turn the glass into cullet and fully recycle it.


Commodities (with rebates)

If you produce large quantities of cardboard, plastic or metal we can pay you a rebate for that material. We can also advise on providing equipment to maximise your returns.
