DARLINGTON RECYCLING CENTRE
We care passionately about the environment and are committed to reducing the amount of waste that goes into landfills, we work hard to turn waste into new resources and contribute to a circular economy.
We operate a specialist waste management and recycling centre in Darlington where we bring all the waste collected in our skips. Once it arrives it is weighed then recycled the following waste streams; timber, metals, plasterboard, light plastics, heavy plastics, green waste, cardboard, paper, textiles, carpets, brick rubble, roof tiles, slates, concrete, glass, soils and stone, before sending them on to specialist, approved re-processors to be turned into new products.
We are constantly working to improve our recycling facilities to continuously improve our recycling rates. To achieve this, we invest in staff training, development and management to ensure our staff can react quickly when legislation changes or when the demands of our clients change.
By implementing environmentally friendly waste treatment processes it is not only helping the environment, but also customers to meet their corporate social responsibility and environmental commitments.

WASTE RECYCLING STREAMS
Metals are valuable materials that can be recycled without degrading their properties. All metal that comes into our recycling center is sorted and collected to be recycled.
GARDEN WASTE RECYCLING
Recycling garden waste has many benefits for the environment. All of the garden waste we receive is collected, shredded and recycled into biomass fuel or mulch.
Cardboard is one of the easiest materials to recycle as it can be shredded down, pulped, pressed & dried before being converted into new cardboard.
Only 32% of plastics are currently recycled but nearly all types of plastics can be. All our plastic is shredded and melted into polymer pellets to be reused.
Wood is the ultimate renewable material. We sort and separate all wood to be collected, shredded and reused in chip board production or recycled into power station fuel.
Plasterboard must be separated for recovery and recycling after being banned from landfill sites in 2009. All our plasterboard is collected and recycled into products for agricultural, commercial and industrial markets.
49% of the waste that comes in from our skips is concrete or rubble waste which we sort, crush and screen to recycle it into high-quality Type 1 and 6F5 products. Available to buy in a range of sizes, ideal for capping and building up levels for roadways, driveways and temporary roads.
