Effortless Recycling Solutions

Retail Waste
Collection Service

At Waste King, we understand that the approach to disposing of retail waste varies according to the type of waste your establishment generates. It is crucial to segregate different waste streams into designated bins to minimise the risk of cross-contamination and maximise recycling opportunities. As certified waste management specialists, we offer collection services for your segregated waste, ensuring it is transported to suitable facilities for responsible disposal.

Committed to a zero landfill initiative, our goal is to facilitate the recycling or repurposing of as much retail waste as possible. Here are some effective disposal and recycling techniques we employ for various types of retail waste:

  • Food Waste: Instead of contributing to landfill volume, food waste undergoes anaerobic digestion, a process that transforms it into biogas. This biogas is then utilised to produce green energy, underscoring our commitment to renewable resources.
  • Glass Recycling: We process waste glass by sorting, cleaning, pulverising, melting, and finally reshaping it into new glass items, thus completing the recycling loop.
  • Plastic Recycling: The recycling method varies with the plastic type; for instance, PET plastics from drink bottles are shredded, cleansed, melted down, and remolded into plastic pellets, ready to be fashioned into new products.
  • Textile Waste: Unwanted textiles find new life either by being processed into polyester chips or by having their fibers cleaned, separated, and rewoven into yarn, supporting the circular economy.
  • WEEE Waste: Electronic and electrical waste is dismantled to separate components, which are then recycled according to their specific materials, including metals and plastics, ensuring a sustainable approach to managing electronic waste.

By adhering to these practices, Waste King pledges to not only protect the environment but also to support the sustainability goals of the retail industry.

Retail Waste Storage

Waste King understands that the type and size of waste bins utilised in retail environments, such as shops and shopping centres, can vary significantly based on their specific needs, including the volume and variety of waste generated. In large shopping centres, which often handle a substantial number of deliveries, our 1100-liter wheelie bins are a preferred choice. These are the largest bins available in our range, designed to accommodate general waste, cardboard, and dry mixed recycling efficiently.

For establishments like large supermarkets and shopping centres looking to optimise waste management, especially for compressible materials such as cardboard and paper, Waste King recommends the use of compactors or balers. These are ideal solutions for businesses with adequate space, facilitating more efficient waste processing and recycling.

Smaller retail outlets and shops typically opt for our standard two-wheel bins, which offer a versatile and safe method for storing various types of waste. It’s essential for all retail businesses to have access to general waste bins, available in multiple sizes to meet different requirements.

In the dynamic world of retail, various types of waste are generated daily. Understanding these categories is essential for effective waste management and sustainability efforts. Waste King addresses a wide array of retail waste types, including:

  • Packaging Waste: This encompasses materials such as cardboard, plastic wrapping, and packing peanuts, which are used for shipping and handling goods. Packaging waste constitutes a significant portion of retail waste, especially in stores that frequently receive stock.

  • Electronic Waste (WEEE): Retailers dealing in electronics or that use a lot of electronic equipment (e.g., computers, cash registers, scanners) will produce e-waste. This category includes broken or outdated gadgets and appliances.
  • Hazardous Waste: Certain products sold in retail, like batteries, cleaning agents, and some cosmetics, can be classified as hazardous waste when they are no longer usable and need to be disposed of.
  • Textile Waste: Clothing stores and fashion outlets often encounter textile waste, which includes unsold clothes, returned items, and damaged goods.
  • Paper Waste: Receipts, invoices, promotional materials, and other paper products used in the daily operations of retail stores contribute to paper waste.

Each type of waste requires specific handling and disposal methods to minimise environmental impact. Waste King provides tailored solutions to manage these various waste streams efficiently, promoting recycling and sustainability in the retail sector.
