Whether you’re an eco-conscious individual or a business owner bound to exacting environmental legislation, it’s time to act on landfill waste. Every year, we send millions of tonnes of rubbish to landfill, where it is left to release hazardous toxins and greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. What many people don’t realise is that this problem could be significantly reduced by simply taking a more responsible approach to waste disposal.
At Cherry Hill Waste, we are dedicated to providing effective and affordable solutions to ensure no valuable materials are wasted and no potentially toxic materials are left to break down and pollute the planet through landfill. We offer both domestic and commercial skip hire services, after which we aim to recycle up to 90% of your waste.
How to Reduce Your Rubbish
One of the first ways in which you can limit your contribution to landfill is to simply reduce your rubbish output in the first place. There are many small changes you can make in your everyday life to make this a reality. Here are just a few of the ways in which you can reduce your waste:
- Say no to plastic bags and take a reusable tote bag to the shops instead.
- Avoid using single-use plastic containers, plates or cutlery.
- Rather than buying new electricals at the first sign of a breakage, make do and mend.
- Purchase reusable water bottles for yourself and your workforce.
- Cancel your junk mail – a simple phone call or email could save you the hassle of receiving unsolicited mail and save the planet at the same time.
- Switch your plastic toothbrush for a wooden one.
- Select fruit and vegetables which are not packaged in plastic.
Although these simple tips can help you to minimise your everyday waste, you will inevitably still end up with a certain amount of rubbish to deal with. The best way to approach this is to be sure to recycle it. Many individuals and businesses fall behind when it comes to knowing what can and cannot be recycled and end up throwing away valuable materials or contaminating the recyclable waste with non-recyclable products.
This is where Cherry Hill Waste can be of service. On top of recycling the majority of waste that is disposed of in our skips, we also offer waste collection services so that you can rest easy in the knowledge that your rubbish is being disposed of responsibly.

Many people believe that sending organic materials to landfill is not problematic, as they will naturally break down. In reality, organic materials such as wood or food waste can have an incredibly damaging impact when left to break down in a landfill environment. Due to the lack of oxygen available in these compacted spaces, organic matter is forced to break down in a way that releases the harmful greenhouse gas methane.
By simply separating and composting your green and organic waste, you can effectively combat this phenomenon. Here at Cherry Hill Waste, we focus heavily on the importance of wood and green waste recycling, providing a simple solution for residents of Newcastle-under-Lyme, Stoke and Stafford by converting this waste into biogas energy.
On top of this, we are dedicated to recycling a whole range of other commercial and household waste in order to combat landfills for good. We offer skip hire, waste recycling, recycling machinery hire and recycled aggregates to help you do your part for the environment, both at home and at work.
