Environmental Waste Controls

Recycling Commodities

We operate a fully licensed Materials Recycling Facility (MRF), located at our Knowsley site, where we recover, reuse or recycle materials generated by our commercial clients .

Our fully trained staff are specialists in identifying materials that can be recycled.

Materials including cardboard, metal, paper and plastics are recovered from mixed loads and separated, by waste stream, for recycling. Once processed, these materials are sold by our specialist marketing team, ensuring we achieve best prices for each commodity and can pass on said value to our clients.


We finally achieved our aim of sending none of the material processed in our MRF to landfill in 2019 and through careful management of our third party disposal sites we will ensure this continues in the future. We offer a Zero to Landfill solution to all our clients, new or existing, and hope to achieve 100% zero to landfill across our client base by 2022.

97% recycling

Because of the hard work and efforts we put in to educate and manage our clients in terms of the Waste Hierarchy, we are able to recycle 97% of all the material that enters our facility because it is mostly segregated at source. Where this isn’t possible we carry out segregation at our Facility to ensure ‘Nothing goes to waste’.


Once your recyclates have been collected, we will bring them back to our Material Recycling Facility to be separated for onward processing.

We handle a variety of materials, recycling and processing the material to be put towards making new, resuable materials. Our aim is to not only reduce your business’s carbon footprint, but also help reduce your waste costs!

Multiple award-winning waste and recycling management company Environmental Waste Controls provide a sophisticated and cost-effective waste recycling management system making the best use of compaction and reduction for all clients in the Private and Public sectors.
