Learn more about Paper Recycling in London
One of the most important factors in paper recycling is that the paper is free from contaminants before it is reprocessed. Although this is a routine part of recycling at Materials Recovery Facilities throughout the city, it greatly helps local authorities if residents can rinse out food containers before placing them in the recycling bins for collection, as this helps keep the process at paper recycling centres as efficient as possible.
Some local authorities in London have colour coded bin systems in place for residents to place paper and card, however most councils collect it alongside other dry recycling materials like plastic and tin, as not much paper is typically produced by individual households. For businesses requiring paper recycling services, segregated bins are more practical, and at Wayst we work with service providers who can deliver bins specifically for a variety of paper and card types. An estimated 80% of all office waste is made up of paper based products, and segregated waste options can be made available for organisations who produce large amounts of different grades of paper, helping to lower their carbon footprint and speeding up the recycling process.
Wayst partners with paper recycling service providers who meet our standards for commitment to environmental sustainability, and who work with us to find the most effective and environmentally friendly solutions throughout the paper processing journey. We send expert waste management personnel, who have access to the best recycling options for paper waste at processing plants, and who provide comprehensive waste transfer notes (WTNs) overseen by us in compliance with DEFRA and Environment Agency guidelines.
