Running a business means looking after everything from the marketing and budgeting, to the commitment to keeping a clean and clear premises. The Environmental Protection Act of 1990 encourages a Duty of Care on all businesses to remove business waste with as little impact on the environment as possible. This is not a service that comes free for businesses, and with landfill tax rising, many are seeking a solution to managing their commercial waste.
What is waste disposal?
There is a lot of legislation in place surrounding the storage and collection of commercial waste. This is something that changes from time to time and it is the responsibility of the business owner to stick to guidelines, for the good of the business, its clients and staff alike.
Waste collection and disposal services ensure that you comply with legislation and all of your waste is sorted into recyclables and general waste and for specialist waste such as clinical to be stored and disposed off in the correct legal way. Commercial waste collection offers you peace of mind and time to go about the elements of your business you excel in, without compromising on a legal obligation or your time. Refuse collection for businesses offers a cost-effective route to managing waste on your premises, whilst adhering to compliance.

As a business owner, it’s important that you are aware of the various different methods of waste disposal in order to ensure you safely and responsibly dispose of any waste your company produces.
Traditional waste disposal involves waste being collected and taken to a landfill. Although this method should now be considered a last resort over other, more environmentally friendly forms of waste management due to the dangers landfills pose to the environment. As rubbish begins to rot, it releases methane gasses which have been known to damage the ozone layer.
In additional to landfills, traditional waste disposal also includes incineration. This reduces solid objects to ash, gas and heat – but can have wider environmental implications.
Recycling products helps to protect the planet as it finds new uses for your waste, thus lessening the impact each product has on the environment. You can recycle paper, cardboard, glass, and metals. You can also drop other products, such as wood, to be recycled at specialist plants.
Composting is another, eco-friendly form of waste disposal. Compost is made from decomposing/decomposed organic matter and has multiple uses. For example, you can use compost to help fertilise any plants that you may be growing.
The purpose of waste disposal is quite simply, to find a way to get rid of waste. Proper waste disposal, or ethical waste disposal, aims to do this in a way that does not negatively impact the environment. This means we are constantly searching for alternatives to traditional waste disposable, where possible.
Recycling and composting are widely considered to BE the best methods of waste disposal. Therefore, it is advised that you separate your waste into recyclables and food/matter that is able to decompose. When possible, try to only purchase products that fall into the above categories – thus minimising your need for traditional waste disposal. For example, switch single-use plastics for materials that can be used again and again.
Safe disposal of waste is a practice, which when implemented, ensures that businesses, companies and individuals are properly and safely disposing of any waste. This process involves:
