Dry Mixed Recycling

What is Dry Mixed Recycling?

Dry mixed recycling (DMR) is the part of the waste that can be recycled by most tipping sites.   Wilrose offers all the bin sizes including 1100L wheelie bins for DMR for commercial sites to recycle.  

It is the most common form of mixed recycling for business.  Nontheless, it can be better for commercial establishments to separate their waste by type to fully maximise the environmental and cost savings available.

Is it cheaper to recycle business waste?

Yes - the same size of DMR bins are cheaper than general waste bins.  So it is cheaper to recycle than put everything in the main bin.  

Wilrose also offers source separation bins - so you can put your glass in a separate bin and your food in a separate bin.  Why?  This saves you money!
