Recycling your waste across West Yorkshire

We at BWS take great pride in being at the forefront of skip hire and waste recycling services across West Yorkshire. We have a purpose built waste recycling centre in Leeds. For every skip of waste we collect, over 85% of its content will be recycled, including wood, bricks, metals, inerts, cardboards and plastics. All waste is segregated to maximise our recycling figures.

What happens to your waste at our recycling centre?

  • Your skip containing various types of wastes will be collected and transported to our recycling centre and loaded onto the weighbridge. This is so that we know how much waste was in the skip.
  • The skip is then tipped out along with other waste received, and our machines will start segregating the larger pieces of material - already, it is being recycled and moved around the site into the relevant places.
  • The smaller more manageable pieces of waste are all loaded into the hopper where it makes a journey to the trommel, down a long conveyor belt to the manned picking belt. This is a manual picking line where we have pickers removing the various types of waste by hand. Directly below the picking line are collection bins for the various types of waste segregated by hand.

Recycled waste

The following gives you an idea of where your waste, once segregated and recycled, ends up.
  • Timber
    Once segregated, this is bulk loaded to the wood processors for animal bedding or garden mulch.
  • Metal
    Once segregated, this is bulk loaded to the scrap metal merchant for reprocessing.
  • Brick / Concrete
    Once segregated, this is bulk loaded to be crushed and reused as hardcore for back filling, foundations or bases for concrete.
  • Excavation waste
    Once segregated, this is screened and rescreened and reused as graded hardcore or soils.
  • Cardboard / Paper
    Once segregated, this is bulk loaded and delivered to the local recycling plant and reprocessed.
  • Green waste / Plasterboard
    Once segregated, this is bulk loaded for reprocessing and used as soil conditioner.
  • Plastic
    Once segregated, this is bulk loaded, reprocessed and used as new plastic items.
