General Waste

While we all strive to minimise the amount of general waste we produce by separating reusable, recyclable, or recoverable materials, the reality is that general waste is a constant in the waste industry.

General waste is dry, light, compactable waste originating from your premises. It’s important that this waste is compactable, as you may have noticed the collection vehicles that tip and compact waste for efficient rounds. Failure to provide compactable waste might cause damage to the collection process.

Additionally, general waste should be dry (no food waste). Liquid leakage from containers or vehicles not only violates regulations but is also unsightly and, let’s face it, unpleasant.

While we have been managing general waste for many years and it is regarded as a day-to-day activity we never become complacent about it.  One of our core values is CURIOSITY which drives us to find innovative solutions to manage general waste to improve recycling and reuse rates.  We see general waste as a resource and our mindset is that of continuous learning and exploration – everyday is a “school day” here at Greenzone.
