Comingled recycling, also known as single-stream recycling. Where paper, card, plastic and metal recycling are collected in a single container rather than separately.
Non-metallic wastes, which includes glass, plastic, rubber, wood, textiles, paper and card.

Metal recycling can be further segmented by type of metal, namely:
Ferrous metals waste and scrap, including waste and scrap of cast iron and alloy steel. Other ferrous waste and scrap comprises tinned iron or steel, as well as turnings, shavings, chips, milling waste, sawdust, filings, trimmings and stampings, largely obtained from the machining of parts
