Skip Hire Cumbria

Cumbria’s Fully Integrated Recycling Facility

Our purpose-built recycling lines are capable of processing of large volumes of waste material, 300,000 tons every year. The waste undergoes several processes to turn it into various products that can be used again in the building and manufacturing industries, and across many different outlets.

This allows us to be very competitively priced in terms of skip hire and trade waste collection, with income made from the sale of recycled materials.

More importantly however is how our recycling capability enables us to reduce the region’s waste to landfill and Cumbria’s use of fossil fuels. Many competitors with no recycling facilities take waste directly to landfill leaving a higher carbon footprint AND charge more for doing so.

Cardboard and Paper

Cardboard and Paper Recycling at North West Recycling Ltd and Brampton Skip Hire LtdCARDBOARD

Cardboard is manually pulled out of the waste in the picking station and we also collect cardboard from many businesses. It is then bulked up baled into 500kg mill size bales and sold in across the UK and overseas into paper mills to be reborn.


Paper is manually pulled out of the waste in the picking station and is also collected in recycling sacks on our collection rounds. It is then bulked up and baled into 500kg mill size bales and sold in across the UK and abroad.


Plastic waste is tipped at our MRF and we separate 7 different types of plastic.

A mechanical selector grab is used to sort out the larger bulky items such as garden furniture, window frames and sheets of plastic. The remainder is manually taken out on the picking station and bulked up ready to bale. Baled plastics are sold on to re-processors all over the world.



Grade 1 is clean sawn timber such as pallets and joists and skirting boards. This is shredded through our Dropstaad shredder into a 50mm chip to be sold to Egger UK to be processed into new high quality floorboards which are sold in local builders merchants. This means you can use floorboards made from your recycled wood to use again in house building projects.

Grade 2 consists of chipboard and kitchen units that we remove mechanically and manually from the waste stream.
