Rubbish removal includes the processing, removing and disposal of waste. It also includes practices, procedures and methods involved in waste generation, transportation and disposal.
Removing waste is a difficult task. Once the waste has been collected, the site should be cleaned. Waste classification is a very critical process as waste is separated in that process. In addition, recyclable waste is sent to recycling sites, and also the remainder is disposed of in landfills as required by the sorting process.
But what to consider before choosing a waste clearance service from a particular company:
Make sure that the company you choose for your household or business waste has a valid waste carrier license. Check it out on the Environment Agency website.
Make sure of the price if it is genuine. Waste companies that neglect their responsibility to dispose of the waste they carry legally will often offer lower prices as they do not have the costs and fees associated with proper waste disposal. Instead, they pocketed all the profits by throwing them free of charge illegally.
Ask where your trash will be dumped and request a transfer note. If you have any electrical items (WEEE) such as televisions, computers or appliances, they will need to be disposed of separately. A waste transfer note will indicate exactly where your waste is being dumped, to ensure that it is sent to the required facility.
Ask about their recycling policy. Waste management companies must give the customer an explanation for this process. Implementing an effective procedure to maximize recycling and limit landfill waste will be a good indicator of methods of disposing of them.
Search the website reviews that leave previous customers to understand how satisfied they have remained with the service received. If 90% of the comments are positive it is easier to trust a certain company. Another option is to get recommendations from friends.
Let’s stop now to an important part of proper waste disposal which is the Duty of Care.
The Waste Duty of Care is a part of the law that makes everyone responsible for their waste. Ensures that human health and the environment are protected. Non-compliance is a violation that is subject to an unlimited penalty if punished.
The moment you arrange the waste disposal, your waste makes its way documented in a stored document called the Waste Transfer Note. If you hire a skip hire or a waste disposal company you will definitely need to complete this document.
Here you will need to provide a description of the waste and the contact details of the waste carrier, as well as your name and address. You also need to sign it. Then get a copy and keep it safe for 2 years.
