Why DMR is an efficient waste management solution for SMEs



Dry mixed recycling The recycling method aiming to help businesses meet the 204

Businesses across the globe are committing to going plastic free in an attempt to protect the environment and build a better future for our planet.

The latest brand to do so is drinks giant Diageo. It announced it will be removing plastic packaging from several products, including Guinness. The move comes as part of a £16 million sustainability initiative

Direct365, an online provider of workplace products and services, has also revealed it has seen an increase in enquiries for its Dry Mixed Recycling service as businesses bid to go plastic free.

Kathryn Skinner, Managing Director at Direct365, said: “More than 700,000 plastics bottles are littered in the UK every single day and, of all plastic waste just 32% is being recycled.

 “There is great focus on the impact plastic waste is having on our planet and at Direct365 we’re committed to helping businesses recycle more and reduce the amount of plastic packaging used.

“In recent months we’ve seen an increase in demand for waste management and in particular our Dry Mixed Recycling (DMR) service as businesses prepare to meet the prime ministers target of the UK being plastic free by 2042.”

Dry Mixed Recycling is a simple and efficient way of disposing of clean and uncontaminated recyclable materials without businesses having to directly separate waste. This method of recycling is seen as more cost effective for businesses as it is cheaper than sending waste to landfill sites.

Kathryn continued: “We want to be at the forefront of helping our customers with their recycling goals. We’re constantly working with new and existing customers to see how we can best support business needs. I’d encourage any small or medium companies who need support with recycling services to look into DMR and other options that could save them time and money.”

Direct365 works with thousands of businesses across the UK providing a range of services including waste management, workplace safety, washroom hygiene and products and supplies.
