Waste Disposal

Waste Disposal is now a highly regulated activity, with an emphasis on minimal environmental impact. We have embraced the complex legislation governing this and strictly monitor the treatment and eventual disposal of each load taken away from sites by our lorries. The producer of the waste is ultimately responsible in ensuring that it is carried by a suitably licensed operator and that it ends up at an appropriate facility, whether it be recycled or tipped at a landfill site. As fully licensed waste carriers we keep a full audit trail for each load, so our customers can be sure that they are fulfilling their duty of care and can verify the journey from site to disposal facility if called upon to do so.

We are committed to minimising our impact on the environment, and it makes sense for us to recycle waste whenever possible. We therefore encourage our customers to separate waste generated on site into: recyclable waste, inert waste,  building waste, green waste, and other categories. Recycled waste does not attract landfill tax and is therefore the most economical category - included in this category are broken concrete, brick rubble, clean topsoil, and tarmac break-out, but it is important not to mix these items in each load, since the load would then not qualify for an appropriate recycling depot. Most waste falls into one of the following categories: hardcore, broken concrete, inert muck (soil & stones), tarmac/road planings, non-hazardous, mixed building rubbish, contaminated.

Material from excavations usually comes under the category of "soil & stones" and would normally be taken to a licensed inert landfill site. Landfill sites are required to closely monitor the composition of incoming material and as waste carriers we are asked to provide soil reports for each site where the waste originates. When undertaking excavations generating exported waste, contractors routinely have to supply a soil report, and the resulting composition can dictate which landfill site is appropriate.

Our experienced team will be happy to provide advice, and where necessary visit your site and give an assessment of any potential issues.
