Extracting value from ‘waste’ requires an understanding of the materials market at an international level.
To maximise the value of commodities, you need to change the way that recyclables are presented.
Materials need to be uncontaminated and clean. Often it pays to have equipment on site to bale or compact the material to increase payloads.
Axil works with several equipment manufacturers and are available for site visits to recommend the most suitable options.
Segregate to accumulate
Improving segregation on our customer sites allows us to unlock the value in their waste streams.
Materials that can be recycled can attract a rebate value. Separating recyclables from general waste is the first step.
It may then be possible to separate waste streams further to maximise value – copper and aluminium is worth far more than mixed steel.
Axil has good experience of advising on this and can set up segregation schemes with proven track records.
“Axil’s expertise and open book approach to demonstrating value via rebates is one of their great strengths.
It brings greater credence to the concept of “added value”.

Specialist treatment routes
Some specialist streams such as solvents or acidic materials can be recycled, and rebates are often paid.
Specialist advice is needed to ensure compliance and to ensure that materials are stored and transported safely.
Our in-house team of chemist and technical experts can provide advice on how to carry this out for any suitable waste streams.
Driving culture change
As with any new process, to improve waste segregation it is important to get the buy in from the people on site.
Staff training and waste awareness campaigns help drive the right behaviour and ensure employees are on board with the changes.
Axil can develop a range of solutions to support this including toolbox talks, posters, open days and awareness videos.
Our latest case studies show successful waste management in practice. Our unique, value-added, partnership approach delivers results – that’s why we retain 98% of our customers!
