Dry Mixed Recycling (DMR)

Managing your dry mixed recycling (DMR) into the correct bins can be a hassle for any business. Placing cardboard, plastic, cans, and paper into the right bin requires time and organisation which means taking time away from running your business. This is where we come in.

With Direct365’s mixed recycling service, all you will need to do is place all your recyclable waste into clear bin bags. They have to be clear because when we come to collect your waste, we need to be able to see if it is a recyclable waste.

Our dry mixed recycling service will collect your waste and take it to a recycling centre, where we will dispose of it. We dispose of all waste in full accordance with the current waste regulations. We can tailor our service to suit your needs and come and collect your waste at a time that suits you.

You will also receive the necessary paperwork to prove that you are compliant with the law. Another thing you can be sure that you will get with Direct365 is the best price. This is because we search the market, through qualified disposal companies nationwide, to get you the best deal. All you need to do is give us a call our waste experts or fill in a form.

We also will help you with any changes to your service that you need. If you are a growing business who is looking at rapid growth, we will adapt the service to your changing needs.

To make a change to your service, call us and we will get you the changes you need for your business. It’s like we’re an extra member of your team when it comes to ensuring you have the services you need.

About Dry Mixed Recycling

When it comes to dry mixed recycling, there are four categories of DMR:

  • Paper – Newspapers, office paper, magazines, and any other dry paper
  • Cardboard – Cereal boxes, delivery boxes, corrugated cardboard, card
  • Metal cans – Drinks cans and food tins
  • Plastic – Empty milk bottles,  drinks bottles, packaging film, meal trays, margarine tubs


It can tricky to work out if something is or is not suitable for DMR. Aside from the four categories above, nothing is classed as DMR. Waste that cannot be DMR includes:

  • Paper cups from high street coffee shops
  • Crisp packets
  • Sweet wrapping
  • Food waste
  • Liquids
  • Glass
  • Ceramics
  • Wood
  • Polystyrene
  • Textiles
  • Hazardous materials – e.g. paint tins or bleach bottles
