Combining mixed waste in one bin provides a convenient way for Leeds businesses of any size and industry to recycle everyday rubbish together. It offers a simple and affordable way to responsibly dispose of many recyclable materials without paying for different individual bins. Dry mixed recycling (DMR) covers four main materials:

Paper – newspapers, magazines, and envelopes

Cardboard – cereal boxes, packaging materials, and greeting cards

Metal – clean and empty drinks cans and food trays

Plastic – drinks bottles, plastic food packaging, and margarine tubs

These are similar to the materials you can throw away in your green recycling bin at home. While Leeds City Council collects domestic recycling bins that contain mixed recyclable rubbish from around 341,500 households, businesses must arrange commercial waste collection. Shops, offices, schools, and other organisations all benefit from using DMR bins.
