We take your recycled material in the form of comingled or source-segregated waste for disposal and treatment, processing it in the most sustainable and environmentally practical way.
It makes real business sense for London-based, Hertfordshire and Home Counties waste management and local authority collectors to use Wylie Environmental. Not only is our recycling facility well-situated, we endeavour to support our clients meet their commercial and environmental targets.
Quality is the expression of our goal to process recyclate to the highest quality to maximise resource recovery and contribute to the circular economy.
We manage our operation to fully comply with all aspects of legislation.
Wylie Environmental’s primary focus is the safety of our employees and partners. We also give high priority to our environmental responsibilities in maximising recycling, contributing to the circular economy and preserving resources.
Adam and Jonathan Wylie have come to share a formidable understanding of the recycling industry and the environmental sector with a combined experience of 20 years. This understanding – and demonstrated proactive competence – has translated into impressive results in their respective careers.
Both previously worked at the resource management company Veolia. Jonathan as Senior Development Manager, and Adam as Business Area Manager. Between them they’ve managed sizable budgets and projects delivering significant profits and growth through turning waste into a resource. Andrew Wylie is the company’s Non-Executive Chairman, he brings a wealth of experience as a former Managing Director of a global logistics company.
As a green product and resource producer, we go beyond the traditional model of waste disposal service. The business world’s current approach to managing resources is becoming unsustainable, with its dependence on large amounts of cheap materials and energy. What is becoming increasingly clear is that there are real advantages to developing more sustainable alternatives.
"The circular economy is a continuous positive development cycle that preserves and enhances natural capital, optimises resource yields, and minimises system risks by managing finite stocks and renewable flows."
At Wylie Environmental, our goal to is to process recyclate to the highest quality to maximise resource recovery and contribute to the circular economy.
This material is received from Public and Commercial sector operators in the form of commingled cardboard, paper, LDPE, HDPE, PET, aluminium and tin. We also accept loose and baled source segregated recycling.
The material is mechanically sorted into resource fractions using a strict quality management process. It is finally baled to meet market specifications – ready for distribution to be linked back into the manufacturing process.
In the final stage of the process, newly baled material is distributed to recycling/ manufacturing markets while the residual waste is disposed at cost for thermal treatment which is diverted from landfill.
We perform a strict quality management process to ensure high quality and recyclability of all waste materials we receive.
In the traditional economy resources are manufactured, consumed and disposed of in a finite process. In the circular economy, products, components and materials are kept in use for as long as possible. When they are no longer useful their raw materials are reclaimed and then remanufactured and reused – as the cycle begins again. This is an economic model that saves resources and money.
Wylie Environmental supports this cyclical process by offering a recycling recovery service that extracts recycling resource that can be linked back into the manufacturing process, as opposed to the use of raw/virgin materials - preserving resources and helping the environment.
The transition away from the linear model of truck and tip to landfill is well under way. We now favour a resource management approach where the industry acts as a provider of raw materials and energy to the rest of the economy.
