Rejecting items


Are you aware that when you place some of your recycling out for collection that workers may reject some of it once it gets to the centre? There are a number of errors you could be making whilst packing your rubbish box or bags. They can increase the likelihood of your objects not making it through to reprocessing. Instead, they will just end up in landfill.


The following are some of the simple acts you could be doing that you can easily rectify. All you need is a bit of care and attention.


Too much grease


It’s true that we make pizza boxes using cardboard. However, they will get rejected due to there being an excessive level of grease. This contaminates the material, making it unsuitable for re-use.




You can compromise grass cuttings or garden debris if any stones remain in the pile. This shall make the green waste unusable. They won’t break down like leaves and soil will. Incorporating organic food litter with dry recyclables shall befoul anything that you mix with it too.


Bubble wrap and plastic wrap


Many people hold on to envelopes and boxes because paper and cardboard are highly recyclable. The problem is the materials may have bubble wrap, tape or other plastics on them. This contaminates them and means they cannot be processed. It is better to separate everything.


At Lincs Rubbish Clearance, we take great care to ensure that all of your recyclable items reach our facility. It’s understandable that you may not be certain about the status of particular articles.


In the UK, residents throw away 407kg worth of litter on average every year. If you want to dispose of items more thoughtfully we can help with. We’ll clear up any rubbish for you, showing why we are the best for waste clearance Lincoln can offer. We hope to hear from you soon.
