Waste Recycling in York

We love recycling and, if you are keen to become more eco-friendly, then you’ll love working with our team for your York waste collection.

When it comes to York recycling, we are your local experts and we can collect any commercial waste from you and recycle it either traditionally or into fuel.

Our mixed recycling bins suit most York businesses, as they collect a wide variety of recyclables — these bins also makes it simple for staff members to recycle, as they don’t have a huge decision to make about which bin to use.

Aluminium (food tins, drink cans, etc.), plastic bottles, paper, and cardboard can all be placed in our mixed recycling bins in York.

If your premises produce food waste in York, we can provide kitchen caddies and a bin for a food waste collection — with regular bin washes to stop bacteria (and smells) from building up.

You might be interested to know that the food waste we collect in York is either composted and then used to provide nutrients to crops, or converted into renewable energy.

If your business produces glass bottles as waste, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Our hassle-free glass collection in York doesn’t require you to separate your glass into type or colour — you just place it all in your bin and we take it away for glass recycling.

We also offer an innovative paper cup collection to York businesses, saving hundreds of thousands of single-use cups from landfill. We can collect all shapes and sizes.

Once the paper cups leave your premises, they are baled and delivered to a paper mill that separates the paper from the plastic and then both are recycled.

Domestic Waste in York

We work with domestic waste in York as well as commercial waste and so we can collect any waste from your home — electrical waste, bulky waste, furniture, bags of rubbish, DIY waste, garden waste, or any other type.

We can carry out a full house clearance or collect any amount of household waste from your property in York.

Our waste clearance service is prompt and professional; two uniformed members of staff turn up in a boxed waste collection vehicle and do the loading for you.

Even better, you only pay for the amount of waste you are disposing of.

We have been using Forge recycling for a while now and in all dealings with them they have been exemplary. Daniel made the whole process very easy for us in terms of setting the arrangement up and it was all done easily and speedily, with care taken to explain all the options available to us. He also went ‘over and above the call of duty’ and cleared our bin store out himself to ensure that it was ready for the new bin arriving! The service throughout has been great and they increased our collections as soon as we felt there was a need to do so without any fuss. I would have no hesitation in recommending Forge recycling and am pleased to have chosen them as our recycling provider.
