Retail & Wholesale

supermarkets, convenience stores, high street multiples, shops, wholesalers, etc.

The challenge for your sector

Several important challenges have to be met in this sector:

The retail and wholesale sector operates under very stringent public health, safety and hygiene regulations.

Businesses selling food must ensure that waste does not create pollutionodour, or attract vermin. Others may be concerned to ensure public safety e.g. electrical retailers etc. All will be looking to maximise the space available to display and sell goods.

This is a challenge given that most businesses will have limited space for storage of dry recyclables (packaging, pallets etc) and residual waste (uncooked and cooked food, etc).

Typical recycling requirements

  • Cardboard packaging
  • Polystyrene packaging
  • Bubble wrap
  • Pallets
  • Food waste
  • Paper – all grades
  • Drinks cans
  • Glass bottles
  • Disposable cups
