Marshall Recycling can provide you with a collection and recycling service no matter what your situation.
We supply our clients with a bespoke total Waste and Recycling management system covering all waste streams.
At Marshall Recycling we are dedicated to recycling as much as possible, because it’s a known fact that the world is running out of natural resources as a whole, so it’s vital we do what we can to protect our environment.
Recycling in essence is the process of taking a material such as paper, or product – like a plastic bottle, and processing it into a new product, rather than filling landfills. The process of recycling is also much less damaging to the environment.
Many of the products used in agriculture can actually be recycled.
At Marshall Recycling, we have many long established relationships with farmers, helping to them to reduce their environmental impact.
From spray drums to seed bags, we are able to recycle the material to ensure very little of the agricultural waste produced is wasted.
Cardboard and Paper
Cardboard and paper are probably the most recognisable products that we recycle.
Most types of paper, cardboard, newspapers and magazines can be recycled.
We offer a range of different waste collection services to collect your cardboard and paper, from 40 yd RORO skips to smaller enclosed skips. We also offer a collection service from small bags to materials that you may have already baled.
Your cardboard and paper is then sent to be recycled and re-used through our close relationships with approved, responsible recyclers.
Shrubs, bushes, small trees and branches, garden waste and leaves can all be recycled.
Your waste is taken to create compost and then used in the local agricultural industry.
Vast amounts of energy is used in extracting and processing materials used in the production of ferrous and non ferrous metals.
We recycle your waste metal for re-use, reducing your carbon footprint and preserving reserves of raw materials.
Waste plasterboard and gypsum has been banned from landfill since 2009.
By segregating the gypsum and plaster waste from your skips the material is then used in the composting process.
Whilst the paper fraction can biodegrade as part of the compost, the gypsum will be incorporated into the final compost product. This results in a calcium and sulphur-rich compost.
Where you are able to segregate plasterboard on site, making it easier for us to handle and recycle, we can reduce the price of your skip.
Marshall Recycling recycle a wide range of plastics used in many domestic and commercial applications from agriculture to construction.
Plastic has many uses and has become a predominant material of choice for many uses, from drain pipes to plastic film used to wrap the insulation in your loft. The majority of these materials can be re-used and recycled.
By segregating your waste plastics into the various different grades, from PVC drain pipes to HDPE used to make wheelie bins, we ensure that we recycle as much as we possible can.
WEEE (Waste Electrical & Electronic Equipment)
The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE Directive was introduced in January 2007).
It aims to reduce the amount of electrical and electronic equipment being produced – encouraging everyone to reuse, recycle and recover.
At Marshall Recycling we can accept your waste electrical items and ensure they are recycled responsibly through our approved recycling partners. WEEE items are split into two categories, hazardous (including fridges and TV’s) and non-hazardous, both of which we recycle.
Wood is becoming ever more difficult to recycle.
There is reduced demand across the country as plans to build new biomass power stations were shelved and the UK’s largest manufacturer of chipboard closed its doors this year.
After the load is tipped the materials is graded to determine the correct recycling route whether it be suitable for animal bedding, panel board or biomass. The process removes any metal from the wood which is then recycled.
Thankfully, with our recycling partners we are still able to recycle all of your timber in new and innovative ways – e.g. to produce biomass pellets used in power stations and in the composting process, reducing the controversial use of peat.
The question that we should ask ourselves is why shouldn’t we recycle? The world’s growing population means that natural resources are at their lowest ever. By choosing Bucks Recycling, you can rest assured that your rubbish will be recycled and reused – our target is to achieve zero landfill.
By recycling, we’re also reducing pollution and saving energy at the same time. This is possible because the process of recycling requires much less energy during the initial production, as the raw materials have already been created – for example, oil to plastic. Additionally pollution is reduced because it is the conversion of the fossil fuels that produce gases such as carbon dioxide and sulphur dioxide, which in turn, harm the environment and contribute towards other worldwide problems such as global warming.
