GD sponsors Newport U11’s Schools Rugby

We’re delighted to announce that we’re sponsoring Newport U11’s Schools Rugby, providing funding for tracksuits, t-shirts and rain jackets for the players.

What happens to your commercial waste? 

Here at GD, we think it’s important to shed some light on what happens to your trade waste after you’ve disposed of it. We implement a mixture of manual and automated facilities to sort, process and recycle varieties of waste products into usable commodities. Generally speaking, there are 3 phases at play when it comes to waste management at GD.

  1. Delivery

Waste is brought to our transfer stations in Newport and Pontypool to be sorted and processed into separate waste streams ready to be recycled. 

  1. Sorting

Any waste that isn’t pre-sorted prior to being deposited at our transfer station will be sorted by one of our team on the automatic picking line. From here it is then placed into its relevant waste stream. Once the various waste products have been sorted, our specialist teams are able to start processing the waste 

  1. Processing

Below is an example of a handful of products that GD processes to be able to be recycled:


We apply crushing, screening, and washing technology to process construction, demolition and road-sweeping waste into usable recyclable aggregates in line with WRAP protocols that meet EU and BS standards.


We have a specialist scrap metal processing plant and trading arm as part of the group

entity. This allows us to collect and process all scrap metal to sell on to metal recycling companies such as Sims Metal and Celsa.


Operating a multi-function wood processing plant we reprocess wood into wood chip, suitable for horticultural, agricultural and urban amenity markets. Any untreated grade A waste wood is suitable to be chipped an used in one of our 5 biomass boilers, which provides space heating for our warehouses across Newport. 

Cardboard & Paper

We deploy a shredding machine to cut all grades and sizes of cardboard into smaller grades which is then sent to various paper mills across Wales to be made into cardboard, newsprints, office paper and labels. 

Contaminated water

Our specialist liquid treatment plant offers a comprehensive process for a range of liquid wastes, including oily contaminated water and sludges. The plant employs a gravity separation process which recovers liquids suitable for recycling.

Other waste

Anything that we can’t process ourselves or transport to other recycling companies is sent for incineration in Bristol and Cardiff. This allows waste to power homes across the Southwest and the ash residue that is left behind is recycled for use in cement manufacture.
