Packaging waste recycling made easy
If your business produces a lot of packaging waste such as cardboard, paper and plastic wrap, our Harvest packaging waste management solution makes it easy to divert this waste type from landfill and improve your sustainability rates, by recycling in one bin.
Our one-bin service includes:
Cardboard and paper waste
Recycling your cardboard and paper waste in a separate bin reduces collection frequency of your general waste or recycling service which can save you money while diverting materials from landfill.
Clean, clear LDPE plastic wrap
This service is available in selected locations for specific waste types. When plastic packaging is separated from other plastics and protected from liquids, it makes for a higher grade of recyclable product and is even more valuable for creating new items. These include:
- Plastic film
- Pallet shrink wrap
- Stretch wrap
Polystyrene is difficult to recycle and markets are not always available. Ask your account manager if your service includes Harvest. Ensure the polystyrene is sealed in a clear plastic bag to prevent contamination if the material breaks.
This service does not include:
- Rigid plastic
- Plastic, glass, metal cans, bottles and containers
- Magazines, brochures and newspaper
- Waxed cardboard
- Food scraps and general waste
Harvest packaging waste service in action
Clean and dry cardboard and LDPE plastic sealed in clear plastic bags goes into the bin provided. We will then collect, sort and bale the materials – ready for domestic or export sale.
This service ensures material collected produces a higher quality for recycling, maximising the value for resale. Contamination of this bin may result in a rejected bin or fees to send the spoiled material to landfill.
