Frequently asked questions

Why is recycling and waste management in Brighton so important?

As well as delivering clean premises, a good waste management plan recycles as much material as possible, so it can be given a useful second life in the circular economy. Recycled materials typically have a lower carbon footprint and so it also helps reduce the impact of climate change.

Why do we need a waste management company?

It is a legal requirement to dispose of your waste responsibly. Legislation is often complex and there may be significant fines if you do not handle your waste and recycling properly. A reputable waste disposal company, like Recorra, manages this on your behalf so you can know you’re doing the right thing and can concentrate on your business.

Interesting facts about recycling in Brighton

Brighton has taken the following action to improve its domestic and commercial recycling rates over the years.

Key information

Brighton’s recycling rates

Brighton is known for its focus on sustainability so you might be surprised to know that residential properties in Brighton have one of the lowest recycling rates in the country; 30.1% in the latest figures. You will be reassured to know that businesses recycling with Recorra enjoy significantly higher recycling rates, normally over double the city wide average, with many much higher than this.

How to recycle more

Poor recycling rates are often down to confusion and a lack of knowledge. Many recycling streams can be confusing, knowing what can be put in the bin. Take for example Dry Mixed Recycling. This ubiquitous service causes a lot of confusion with customers’ staff. We call it Paper, Cans and Plastic Containers because this is exactly what can be recycled in it. This reduces ‘wish cycling’ and contamination. We provide all the support you need to make your recycling scheme work efficiently, from posters and staff engagement.

Let’s build a better future for Brighton together.
