SKIPs Bins mission is to reduce the waste that ends up in landfill through our threefold strategy – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and redirect waste away from landfill to alternate uses. We achieve it by implementing a program of resource reduction and recovery.
Using multiple alternative approaches to reduce, reuse, recycle waste, only a small amount of waste going in landfills. Waste disposal should be the last option.
We partner with businesses and waste disposal facilities that accept various waste types and recycle them through resource recovery processes and value-added production into new products and energy resources, thereby preventing them to end up in landfills.
We collect and sort dry waste material and separate into reusable materials. The process, next, reclaims and recycles materials such as timber, concrete, metals, green waste etc. Products such as recycled crushed concrete have a much lower carbon footprint than equivalent new product extracted from a quarry. Items such as cardboard use up to 90% of recycled cardboard in the manufacture of new products.
Check out how we recycle these into useful products and energy resources.
Scrap metal is shredded and processed to get rid of impurities such as dirt or paint. The clean steel is then recycled into new products such as steel beams, plates and tubing.
Timber and green waste is recycled into garden mulches, soils and energy technologies that generate electricity for industrial use and supply into the electricity grid.
After sorting, concrete is crushed and screened into various products such as drainage gravel, paving bedding etc. Alternatively, it is also used to build roads and motorways.
Batteries are used by companies that recover the plastic and lead. The plastic is recycled into new plastic products and the lead is melted into ingots and used to make building materials such as weatherproof roof flashing.
Cardboard and paper is pulped and processed into new cardboard packaging.
