Get ready for SME recycling growth

Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) will recycle more even without the pre-treatment legislation in place, according to a Manchester-based waste management company.

With more and more SMEs having to follow a multitude of legislation to reduce the amount of waste they produce the pressure is on for them to comply or face hefty fines.

Waste Management Limited director Richard Weir said: A lot of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) look to organise a source segregation system within their organisation. You do find a lot of people within these organisations do want to recycle but sometimes they cannot find recycling services to help them out.

SMEs will recycle regardless of the pre-treatment legislation because people have got into the habit of recycling at home and are bringing it to the workplace.

Waste Management specialise in commercial and waste recycling and help business source segregate their waste. It collects cardboard, paper, plastics, waste electrical and electronic equipment, metal and generally all recyclable materials. Weir added: We can assist businesses with segregation systems and our vehicles are flexible to collect all different types of waste.

More and more people want to recycle and it is becoming the norm in industry. Businesses realise that their customers are becoming more environmentally aware and theyve realise that recycling is not just to do with legislation but that it is a market driver.
