Hear from some of our happy customers

"NRC completed a full site audit and advised us on improvements we could make increasing recycling and reducing costs. 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."

The types of factory waste we handle

We are committed to seamless factory waste management, no matter how much waste you produce.

Mixed Recycling

Setting recycling goals for your factory operations? Achieving them becomes simple with NRC’s mixed recycling solutions. Do a bit of sorting at the factory, and we’ll take care of the rest.

Cardboard Waste


Overwhelmed by the cardboard your factory generates? We’ve got a solution: an on-site baling system, which can reduce your collection fees.

Food Waste

Excess food from factory canteens or staff meals? Leave it to NRC. We’ll turn it into green energy or compost, and by doing so, you can cut down your general waste expenses.

Nationwide factory waste management services

Factories can work across many different industries, and so can produce a range of different waste types:

  • Oil waste – this is taken to an oil recycling facility where it’s drained of waste, cleaned, distilled and refined for reuse.
  • Scrap metal – this is sent to metal recyclers, often being reused as construction materials or drinks cans.
  • Hazardous waste – hazardous waste needs specific treatments, for more information, get in touch with our teams today.
  • Cardboard – cardboard is collected and turned into a pulp, cleaned, dried and then reshaped into new cardboard sheets
  • Plastics – recycled plastics can be transformed into a number of different products, though they are commonly melted down and reused as plastic bags.

Other common factory waste types include:

  • Solvents
  • Gravel and dirt
  • Concrete and masonry
  • Chemical waste

Because we operate nationwide, we are perfectly positioned to handle all your factory waste collection needs. We know it’s no small task and have the infrastructure, knowledge and experience needed to handle everything seamlessly.
