As all paper can be recycled it makes no sense that any paper should end up in the landfill. Tons of cardboard and paper is used in business packaging and daily activities. From an environmental perspective cutting down trees is not sustainable, as it takes three tons of wood to produce a ton of paper. So, separation at source is encouraged and we will haul it away for recycling for you.
Plastic is often referred to as the enemy of the environment as it takes forever to degrade.

There are different types of plastic, and we at Rubbish Removal Carlisle can advise you on identifying and separating these at your business.

Until recently rubber tyres were not recyclable. They used to be dumped into the landfills causing big environmental problems. However new ways to recycle tyres have been found, meaning that the majority of used tyres can be used in the production of fuel products. The cement industry has also found a use for old tyres, which is now used widely in these products. The recycled rubber is also widely used in the production of asphalt. The good news is that the huge stockpiles of tyres that existed have been reduced this way taking a lot of pressure off landfills.
Most electronic items, even old and obsolete, no matter their condition, can be recycled or reconditioned. Frequently it is assumed that they are only scrap and would be of no use to anyone.

Anything electronic can be pulled apart for spares or working parts, and may have value to someone. So, it is advisable to be wise when it comes to disposing of electronics.
