Lunnon Waste provide Skip Hire and Waste Management Services to the following Industrial Sectors :
Inert Waste Recycling (Soil, Hardcore, Rubble)
At Lunnon Waste we segregate inert wastes for re-use and process this material in house.
Mixed waste is processed to remove the various recyclables leaving an inert waste requiring further processing.
The mixed soils and rubble are screened using a trommel (cylindrical) screen to separate the two fractions.
Once separated the soil is exported for re-use, either to be processed further in to a topsoil product or as sub soil for land reinstatement.
The rubble fraction is exported for re-use as roadways, hardstanding’sor to be crushed in to a usable product.
Metal Recycling (Ferrous & Non Ferrous)
At Lunnon Waste we segregate all metals from the waste stream for recycling and re-processing.
- Steel (Various)
- Stainless Steel
- Cast Iron
- Copper Wire
The above metals are re-handled within the transfer station and are exported to metal merchants for re-processing.
Plasterboard & Gypsum Recycling
A total ban on the disposal of plasterboard waste at mixed landfills is in force.
Recycled plasterboard has a high reuse content with up to 97% being suitable for end-users including onward industry use.
Lunnon Waste can supply specific containers for waste plasterboard and request that where possible plasterboard and gypsum based products are kept separate from other waste streams.
All plasterboard and gypsum based products that enter the transfer station either from our Skip Hire and Waste Clearance services or via direct delivery are segregated and exported to specialist gypsum recycling facilities.
PVC – U Recycling
All PVC-U Frames and doors that we collect are segregated within the Transfer Station and exported to Specialist re-processing facilities for recycling.
PVC-U frames and off-cuts are transferred into an industrial shredder where huge rollers break them up ready for sorting.

Clean, contamination-free pellets are returned to manufacturing facilities ready for new window fabrication.
