What can go in dry mixed recycling bins?

Dry mixed recycling bins can be used for single waste streams (such as tin, paper, plastic), or as co-mingled DMR bins. The types of waste that we accept in our bins include:

  • Cardboard
  • Office Paper
  • Envelopes
  • Magazines and Journals
  • Junk Mail
  • Clean Food and Drink Cans (steel and aluminium)
  • Plastic Bottles
  • Shredded Paper
  • Clear Plastic Film (LDPE)

All recyclable waste should be loose or placed into clear bin bags. Do not place DMRs into black bin bags used for general waste. View our DMR Waste Specification sheet for further advice on what can and cannot be placed in your DMR waste bin.

How can your business benefit from recycling DMRs?

Active recycling through dedicated bin collections will help your business adhere to its environmental responsibilities.

Businesses have a legal duty of care to manage waste in line with the Environmental Protection Act 1990. The act outlines the responsibility of businesses to ensure the separate collection of dry recyclable materials, along with authorised disposal.

At Countrystyle, we offer a professional service and expert advice to help you manage your trade waste and maintain compliance. Our services are comprehensive and include recycling performance reporting with a full audit trail.

The recycling of reusable materials is vitally important for the environment. It helps to reduce the amount of waste going to landfills and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. The process provides raw material substitutes for manufacturing, helping to save on natural resources. It is also cheaper to dispose of DMRs and reduces the waste disposal costs to your business.

How we process DMR waste.

Materials are collected on our fleet of waste vehicles then delivered to our DMR Materials Recycling Facility in Ridham, Kent.

We receive materials as either segregated single waste streams such as paper and plastic bottles, or as co-mingled Dry Mixed Recyclables. Here, all recyclable waste is mechanically and positively picked into recyclable streams and packed ready for further processing.
