Innovation in waste recycling
Floorbrite are working with various recovery/recycling companies to ensure that where possible, waste can avoid landfill by using greener, safer alternatives, such as anaerobic digestion, waste to energy and composting.
As a standard, Floorbrite will provide you with an Environmental report. This will include the percentages of waste that have been recycled /recovered and a breakdown of tonnages of all waste removed from site on your behalf.
Rebateable wastes are materials that can be sold to industry to make other products, which then determines the value of the waste. Certain materials are eligible for these rebates such as cardboard, plastics, wood, metal and large quantities of food. A value will be paid back to you based on the total tonnages collected. These rebates are all subject to market conditions.
Secure shredding will professionally destroy confidential material securely, to ensure you meet your responsibilities under the Data Protection Act and avoid a fine of up to £500,000, as well as avoiding identity theft and as part of good business practice. All shredding is done to BSIA standards and then recycled.
We can offer a regular on-site or off-site confidential shredding service with lockable office consoles. All items placed into the confidential consoles and taken from customers premises are shredded and recycled. Depending on the quality of paper received into our off-site high security shredding plant, it will be either recycled into tissue products, or if the quality is good, recycled into A4 photocopy paper. As part of our commitment to the UK environment, all baled paper is sent to UK mills for recycling. An exception to this is if the paper is being recycled back into A4 photocopy paper which must be done in Europe or China.

• 70% less energy is required to recycle paper compared with making it from raw materials.
• Up to 60% of the rubbish that ends up in the dustbin could be recycled.
• The unreleased energy contained in the average dustbin each year could power a television for 5,000 hours.
