How we sort our waste

Since 1989, we have paved the way for recycling in Devon. Through our recent acquisition of Plymouth-based waste management company Alpha Logic, we have expanded further west into Cornwall. Alongside our range of services, we now have even greater flexibility to divert more waste. Whatever the type of business, we have processes and services to suit your requirements. We recycle everything from glass to hazardous waste, electrical items to confidential papers and plastic to clinical waste.

We use innovative technology and machinery that sorts and converts the waste, with minimal effort required from you.

What bins do I need?

If you are a business or organisation that doesn’t trade in food, you need just one bin for your general waste and recycling together. Using the latest technology, the waste is then processed to extract any recycling that has a sustainable market value. The balance of the waste is then processed into a high calorific fuel for industry used in place of fossil fuels, thus reducing CO2 emissions.

If you are a business trading in food, you need:

1. A general waste bin which will go direct to a waste to energy plant

2. A food waste bin which is processed at Langage Farm in Plymouth to extract gas generating power, with the bi product generated being an excellent fertiliser

3. A recycling bin for tins, card, paper and rigid plastics that we extract for recycling too

Heavy glass usage? Some clients will also need a glass bin service which is processed back into recycled glass in a continuous loop in South Wales.

Everything we collect is a useful resource after becoming waste. We are committed to helping organisations reduce carbon emissions by disposing of their waste with our Zero to Landfill policy, so you can rest assured that your commercial waste will be disposed of in the most environmentally friendly manner possible.

At DCW, we understand that every business produces waste. Whether you own a small or large business, we offer a collection and payment service to businesses that produce waste, helping you to do your bit for the planet as a business.
