Nelson are proud to be a recycling company and continually strive for zero to landfill. We have a range of recycled products and materials available for purchase.

Nelson is regularly appointed to remove builders rubble; demolition waste derived from our own and other companies contract activities; naturally occurring waste from construction and development sites; and waste derived from commercial businesses and skip hire clients.

Selective Sorting & Separating of All Materials

Hard waste arising from demolition and construction projects are processed, crushed and graded for specific applications at our fully licensed recycling centre. Selective sorting and separation of all materials along with strict quality control allows us to supply the construction industry with a comprehensive range of recycled materials that would otherwise have dropped out of the supply cycle; this helps to reduce the demand for primary and natural aggregates.

Recycled Materials, Aggregates & Topsoils Available

Nelson is in line with the UK government initiative that 25% of construction aggregate demand should be met from recycled sources. Recycling is not only good for the environment but also means that Nelson is able to offer customers financial savings whilst still supplying good quality materials.

All our recycled aggregates are tested and certified in line with the WRAP protocol for the production of aggregates from inert waste, and all our recycled aggregates comply with the relevant highways agency and European (BS EN) standards.

Collect Direct or Delivered To You

All the materials available are sold directly from our waste transfer stations and can be either collected or delivered. Our large fleet of 8 wheeled tippers means we can deliver any amount of materials quickly and efficiently. Whether you are a small builder looking to collect, or a blue chip organisation looking for a delivery, Nelson can meet your needs.
