Compactors Direct Ltd
Who They Are
Established in 1987 Compactors Direct is a family run waste and recycling company; they specialise in helping companies save money by managing their environmental strategies.
What They Do
Dry mixed recycling
Dry mixed recycling (DMR) is a simple and innovative service that enables you to improve your recycling performance and save money whilst ensuring minimal disruption to business. Recycled materials include all paper, cardboard, plastic, tin and aluminium cans.
Segregating glass offers a significant cost reduction, mainly due to the government landfill tax, which is charged by weight. Glass itself is extremely heavy and can make up as much as 90% of the commercial waste stream for bars, nightclubs, cafes, restaurants and coffee shops.
Compactors Direct understands that sometimes companies are just not able to separate all of their materials for recycling. They believe that no waste need go to landfill, this waste is instead sent to be converted to residual derived fuel (RDF) for energy.
All the food waste they collect is taken to a specialist compost facility that turns it into a graded compost within seven days – one of the fastest compost processes in Europe.
They provide a full and confidential shredded recycling collection, with shredding implemented either on or off site. Full certificates are provided.
Waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) recycling is a growing waste stream in the UK, which has gained increased attention and media focus as a result of the WEEE Directive legislation (2007). Businesses and public organisations by law are required to dispose of and recycle WEEE in an ethical and environmentally friendly manner.
