Waste Management

In February 2011, the Waste (England and Wales) Regulations introduced a legal requirement for organisations to apply the waste hierarchy when dealing with waste. This means that organisations must take all reasonable steps to prevent and reduce waste, and where waste does arise demonstrate that they have dealt with it in the most environmentally friendly way possible.

Our Waste Management and Recycling Services provide a reliable UK-wide collection service to a variety of organisations including: retailers, wholesalers, distribution centres, manufacturers and local authorities. We operate on a flexible basis allowing you to outsource as much or as little of your waste activities as you wish.

Who is affected?

Your business will be affected by the Duty of Care Regulations if either of the following points apply:

  • The business produces waste

  • The business carries waste

  • The business keeps waste

  • The business disposes of waste

  • The business imports waste
