Waste Recycling in London


Snappy Waste Services are very serious about protecting the environment and always try our best to recycle as much waste as possible.

We all want our world to be around as long as possible right? That’s why we make sure to do our bit when it comes to recycling. There are many items that can be repurposed through recycling and we should all know what can and cannot be recycled.

Below we go through the different types of materials that can be recycled to give you a better understanding with hopes of preventing these recyclable materials from going to a landfill site.

Types of Waste Recycled


We are a ‘green’ waste disposal service and are committed to keeping our planet green. Our company takes care of the environment, by making sure all recyclable waste is processed through an appropriate waste centre.

Recyclable Materials:

  • Glass: A large majority of glass can be recycled and should usually should be separated by colour. It can be repurposed for many things such as glassware, windows, vases, light bulbs and much more.
  • Plastics: Due to plastic being a non-bio gradable material it should always be recycled to prevent it from ending up in waterways and landfill sites. You can recycle plastics made from polystyrene but nylon products and others cannot be recycled.
  • Metals: All types of metals can be recycled including metal furniture, home appliances and building scrap. The best thing is you don’t need to separate the waste.
  • IT Equipment: Most IT equipment and peripherals can be recycled but must be done according to WEEE regulations.
  • Paper & Cardboard: All kinds of paper, cardboard and packaging can be recycled and will actually reduce your council tax bill by simply recycling it.

Nothing goes to waste with Snappy Waste!

Mixed Loads


The time, effort and money it takes to separate the waste once on our trucks makes it virtually impossible to recycle and will end up in landfill. This has a direct impact on the environment so we should all take the time to consider our actions and think responsibility when it comes to waste.

We can all get involved simply by separating our waste even if it is a small amount.
