General Recycling

With more and more packaging around products, it's vital that we all do our bit for the environment. Please wash recyclable items and remember, other people will be handling these items. Squash recyclable items as some items are bulky.

After the items are sorted in our depot they are baled separately at our recycling facility into separate bales of Cardboard and Newspaper and then shipped to another recycling plant.

KWD currently monitors your bin weights for future billing. By following these guidelines YOU will ensure that your bin weights will be reduced.
