As a waste broker, Site Solutions always have sustainability at the forefront of everything we do. We ask our customers to do the same when working with large amounts of waste. Considering the environment when disposing of waste is key to the negating the impact of incorrectly disposed waste.
We recommend considering the waste hierarchy pyramid when dealing with waste:
- Can you reduce the amount of waste?
- Can the waste be reused?
- Can your waste be repaired?
- Can your waste be recycled?
- Can your waste be recovered?
Using pallets as an example, it is a common material that quickly builds up and often considered as waste. Actually pallets are made from a versatile material that can be reused, repurposed or recycled. Site Solutions has recently entered into National pallet collection and recycling; click here for more info
If it's no to all questions, then disposal should be the final option.
Stay on top of the rules!
There are rules and regulations in place to govern the correct disposal of waste that has a legal requirement to be adhered to. Failure to comply will result in hefty fines and possible prison sentences, depending on the severity.
