Arun Recycling is proud to be able to offer more than 30 years of experience to all of our customers throughout the Chichester region. While we provide bespoke services such as skip hire and lorry tippers, we are also heavily involved within the recycling industry. Not only do our methods enable even the toughest of waste removal jobs to be completed in no time at all, but we are also aware that helping the environment can benefit future generations. Let us take a look at how this process works in a bit more detail.


Over 90 per cent of all of the materials that are sent to our site will be recycled. Upon the arrival of each skip, the waste is sorted into various categories. Common recyclable materials include:

  • Plastics
  • Textiles
  • Glass
  • Soil and rubble
  • Paper products
  • Green waste

So, how are each of these materials able to contribute to the Chichester community after they have been recycled?


Plastic materials are first washed to remove any outer residues before being broken down into smaller chips. These chips can then be melted down to make recycled plastic products.


Quality textiles can be used again for numerous purposes; many will be sent to developing regions of the world. Low-quality products are employed as a filler material or as rags within specific industries.


Common glass can be melted and used to make entirely new glass products. Additionally, it may ground down and utilised in projects such as road construction. Plate glass (mirrors and windows) are transported to third-party recycling stations to be milled into glass cullet (glass shards of very small sizes). It may also be used as an aggregate material within other commercial products.

Soil and Rubble

Rubble can be crushed and used within future construction projects. Soil is frequently screened as used within the landscaping sector.


All paper is sent off to a mill where it is cleaned and transformed into a wet material known as pulp. This pulp can then be used to make entirely new paper and paper-based products.

Green Waste

Any green (organic) waste is ground down into appropriate sizes and then used as a form of compost (ideal for both domestic and commercial needs).
