Combine mixed waste in Harrogate with just one bin for easy and convenient recycling. It provides a cost-effective option compared to using a few different containers that don’t get filled if you only produce a limited amount of one waste type.

DMR bins can hold similar waste to the black recycling boxes and blue bags Harrogate Council provides for domestic waste. Everything must be clean and dry. Harrogate businesses must arrange commercial waste collection of all DMR, and we provide free bins anywhere in the district.

How commercial dry mixed recycling works in Harrogate

Provide information about the number and size of DMR bins you need, how often you want them collected, and where from in Harrogate for a free quote. If you’re happy with the price we’ll book delivery and collection of DMR bins for your organisation. These will be delivered for free at an agreed time and date.

Fill each one with clean and dry paper, cardboard, plastic, and some metals within their weight limits. Place them in the agreed collection point ahead of removal. Our purple truck driven by a licensed waste carrier will collect your DMR bins and drive them to a waste transfer station in North Yorkshire.

All the mixed waste will be checked and sorted into individual materials. These are then sent for recycling with their relevant streams. For example, cardboard will be shredded, mixed with water to create a pulp, filtered, rolled, and dried to form new cardboard products.
