I've not encountered mardy as a noun before, i.e. "being in a mardy", but do use it as an adjective, i.e. "a mardy person" or "he got a bit mardy".
Back on topic (!), our local council collect our recycling (papers, card, plastic bottles, drinks cans) once a fortnight (I think - certainly, it is fortnightly for residential collections) and then they sort it out. We have separate bins in every room, and the cleaners empty them when doing the rubbish bins. It did take a bit of encouragement before they stopped emptying them both into the same bag, but once they were used to the system, it worked fine.

To elaborate on earlier answer:
Of my three schools, one is an eco-school, I think we achieved the level where you get to keep the award permanently. Every room has two bins, a rubbish bin and a paper bin. The kids from eco-club come round every night and collect the paper and put it in a room near the skips, when a lot has built up the caretaker moves it all to the paper recycling skip, which the council collect every week (I think).
Yep we have a bin for just about anything. Alu, plastic, glass, print cartridges...etc

We have a lot of trees on site, recently a few had to be cut down, we chipped them and put them into the nature reserve.
Nothing is wasted
