Having worked for 15 years in the waste and recycling industry, we have come to learn that there are many misconceptions as to what can and can’t be recycled, as well as the costs associated with waste removal. Below is a helpful recycling guide; however, for more comprehensive information we recommend checking out our waste and recycling do’s and don’ts.
Following the do’s and don’ts of waste removal and recycling is imperative to making your experience at CopperRock run smoothly.
Before arriving at our facility, it’s important to be aware of what can and can’t be recycled as well as items that have associated fees. Contrary to what some people believe, not all waste and recycling can be processed for free.
Before you arrive at the CopperRock centre, there are two important steps we recommend you take to ensure your visit to our centre runs as smoothly as possible. Keep in mind, our team will always be there to assist if you have any questions upon arrival.
Step 1: Sort Your Waste
The number one tip we can give before you load your waste into your car is to sort, sort, sort! Separate the waste you have according to our categories; General Waste, E-Waste and Green Waste. Doing this will make it much easier for us to check your rubbish. The quicker we can do our job, the quicker you can get home. If your waste is not separated, it will be classified a mixed load and you will be charged for it on the whole. You cannot sort your rubbish on site.
Step 2: Know the Costs
Use our pricing list to get an idea as to how much your waste will cost to discard. This will ensure you’re prepared with your payment amount and aren’t surprised by the charges.
