Panda are passionate about recycling your waste
Our commitment to recycling waste sustainably goes across everything we do:
Zero landfill:When waste sits in landfills it leaks methane and other gases which are harmful to the environment. We don’t believe that it’s ethical to damage the environment in this way and for that reason we have a zero landfill policy.
Repak Recycling Company of the year:
Panda Recycling were recognised as Repak Recycling Company of the year 2014. At Panda we take great pride in being industry leader in recycling your waste.
Waste to electricity:
Your non-recyclable waste material is used as a fuel source for the generation of electricity. This is the most sustainable way to dispose of general waste that cannot be recyled.
Your green bins helped Panda to recycle over 220,000 tonnes of paper in 2018. This equates to over 3.5 million trees saved from deforestation.
Compost for farmyard fertiliser:
Your brown bin compost is treated, conditioned and shredded to be used as fertiliser for farms all over Ireland.
Recycling plastics and aluminium:
Your green bin plastic and aluminium recycling is reprocessed into useful products, sometimes completely different from their original state. For instance this could mean recycling a soft drink bottle into a plastic chair.
Global leader in recycling:
Ireland is amongst the top performing EU countries for packaging recycling and Panda has played a big part in achieving this level of excellence in recycling. Panda’s waste recycling practices are so advanced and environmentally friendly that the group is sharing this knowledge to the Governments of other countries such as China.
