What is Dry Mixed Recycling (DMR)?

This describes an all-in-one solution where clean, uncontaminated recyclable materials are put in the same bin and processed later at a dedicated recycling plant.

Once there, we separate these items for reuse, or send them for recycling into other products.

At Fresh Start, that separation takes place at a cutting-edge modern facility, designed to maximise the quantity of DMR that is recycled.

What can go in this type of recycling bin?

Not every type of waste is suitable for this type of recycling.

However, items that we collect as part of this service include:

  • Paper.
  • Cardboard.
  • Cans.
  • Plastic.

To reduce the risk of contamination, items placed inside this type of container should be clean.

While a major advantage of single-stream recycling is saving time because you don’t have to separate rubbish, the process will only work efficiently if you remove leftover food or liquid residues, and dry containers before they go in the bin.

If you are unsure whether a product qualifies as dry waste, then please don’t hesitate to ask.
