Sparkles Can help you with supplying the bins and the bin bags that you will need to meet the new regulations.

Hey! so did you know, that as of the 6th April new Waste Legislation changes are coming into force? Workplaces will need to separate the materials listed below for recycling. Workplaces will also need to arrange for the waste to be collected separately from other waste.

  • paper and card
  • glass
  • metal, plastic, and cartons and other similar packaging (for example coffee cups)
  • food – only for premises that produce more than 5kg of food waste a week
  • unsold small waste electrical and electronic equipment (sWEEE)
  • unsold textiles

Putting all your waste into a single bin will not be allowed if any of these materials are in there.

Each group of materials must be kept separate from each other. For example, glass must be collected on its own, but workplaces can collect metal, plastic and cartons together in the same container.

Before putting items in the recycling bins think about whether you can reuse them for something else.

For more information please see our powerpoint on the left or the links below.
