by | Feb 18, 2016 | Recycling

At The Waste Company, we are a recycling led waste management company, we always endeavour to provide the most cost-effective, environmentally sound solution for our customers’ waste disposal needs.

We continuously strive to reduce material waste, generate clean renewable energy and make recycling easier for all of our customers.

We strongly believe that with effective waste recycling on site it can improve the construction efficiency and reduce costs significantly for your company, making it more cost effective for you to meet environmental obligations.

Here are a few simple steps you can take to ensure waste recycling is implemented correctly on site:

  • Make sure the responsibility for waste segregation on site is clearly identified
  • Make onsite recycling a site improvement target from the start of the project
  • Ensure all sub-contractors on site are aware of project aims for waste reduction and segregation
  • Hold toolbox talks on a regular basis to ensure waste segregation is kept on the agenda
  • Ensure all segregated waste containers are clearly marked and accessible
  • Use site personnel such as, forklift drivers, assistant site managers etc. to monitor the operation of waste segregation
  • Publish waste figures on site to use as a motivational tool for site personnel
Together with offering the best solutions to recycle materials such as, plastics, paper, metals etc. we provide effective solutions for you to reduce and reuse materials on site. Here are a few examples:

  • Get your whole supply chain involved!
  • Set up with suppliers a take-back scheme for unused products to reduce the amount of unused materials going to waste skips. Therefore, instantly reducing costs.
  • Reuse as much of the waste material on site as possible e.g. brick/ concrete waste, timber cut offs’ etc.
