Rubbish Fact No. 5

Tuesday 21st May 2019

Next in our 'Rubbish Facts' series we pay tribute to National Beer Day! This year National Beer Day was acknowledged on Sunday 7th April, and while I for one enjoyed a cold one in this milder Spring weather, did you know 5 out of 6 glass bottles are thrown away!? The shocking truth In the UK alone, over 200 tonnes of glass bottles a year end up in landfill. A surprising and concerning truth, when just one recycled glass bottle saves enough energy to power a laptop for up to 30 minutes and the amount of glass recycled in a year provides the energy to launch 10 space shuttle missions! Alert- boring, but interesting part up next... A paper published last year, 'Circular Economy'…

Rubbish Fact No. 4

Saturday 5th January 2019

You get what you pay for! Recently a customer of ours told me that they could get the skip we usually deliver for them at a ridiculously cheap rate from another company and that the other company didn't mind what the mix of waste in the skip was (e.g. plasterboard mixed in with general waste). There was no way we could compete with that price so, needless to say, they went with the other company. Whenever we are offered a really cheap rate from a waste sub-contractor we query it. Waste costs money to handle, sort and dispose of in an environmentally responsible and compliant way. If someone is offering a really cheap deal on waste, you need to ask what is…

Rubbish Fact No. 3

Saturday 1st December 2018

The issues with wrapping paper Wrapping paper is designed for single use only, and although some of us try to re-use it (my mum always had a big bag of used wrapping paper in the cupboard), realistically this can only be done once or twice before it is finally binned. Recycling wrapping paper is problematic in a number of ways. Fibres found in cheaper types of paper are not strong enough to recycle. Wrapping paper is often dyed and laminated and can also contain non-paper additives such as gold and silver colouring, glitter and plastics. And to compound all this, it often has sticky tape still attached to it. Landfill or incineration are all too often the only options. In the UK, we…

Rubbish Fact No. 1

Friday 19th October 2018

The truth about waste Construction, demolition and excavation (the markets we deal with most often) account for around 60% of the generation of total waste in the UK. That is around 100 million tonnes per year or enough to fill Lake Windermere, Britain's deepest, largest lake, in just eight months! How Site Solutions can help That's a lot of waste and we want to be right there organising the environmentally responsible, efficient and compliant disposal of that waste. A lot of people don't understand the benefits of using a broker to procure their waste disposal requirements. Here is a list of reasons why it makes sense... 1. It saves management time - instead of your site team or procurement team ordering…
