Workplace Recycling Law Wales

Dry Mixed Recycling is changing in Wales in April 2024. Ensure you are ready for the change and can comply with the new legislation.

Workplace recycling regulations – what is it about?

From 6th April 2024, new legislation means that businesses can no longer put materials like cardboard and plastic into the same bin/skip/container.

The result? More bins, more contamination, more collections, higher costs.

Now is the time to segregate and compact waste on site and:

  • Save time, (no more flattening boxes)
  • Save space (avoid separate bins for card, plastic and general waste)
  • Save money (bale and compact on site and even earn revenue for your baled waste stream)

You can read the full details on the legislation here.

Wales Recycling – What waste needs to be separated?

The new recycling legislation simply means that you are required to separate recyclable material and can no longer mix many materials in a typical dry mixed recycling bin or skip.

The following materials must be segregated for collection:

  • Food
  • Paper and card
  • Glass
  • Metal, plastic and cartons
  • Unsold textiles
  • Unsold small waste electrical and electronic equipment (sWEEE)
