What are the main types of waste streams?
General waste streams
The everyday items you throw away hold a wealth of resources. After your general waste is collected, it is processed to recover as much of these resources as possible for reuse in new products.
Specialised waste streams
Some waste streams can pose risks to human and environmental health and safety. Specific regulatory requirements and procedures cover how these specialised waste streams are collected and processed.
Everyone can contribute to the circular economy
It’s not difficult to separate your waste into different streams for recycling, but it can make a huge impact. Effective recycling increases the volume of waste diverted from landfill for reuse in new products while protecting our untouched natural resources.
