How to dispose of waste responsibly?

Waste is a growing concern for us all- regardless of how much we generate! Any waste that we produced is our responsibility, hence why we need to make sure that it’s disposed of carefully.

Waste needs to be handled safely to eliminate potentially dangerous consequences. Here at Skips Preston, we specialise in skip hire Preston, along with various other waste disposal services, so there’s no reason why you cannot get rid of waste responsibly!

Dealing with Controlled Waste.

Controlled waste refers to all kinds of domestic, commercial and industrial waste. Whether you’re looking for a skip for your home or your business, it’s your responsibility to store, transport and dispose of items that you produce without impacting on the environment.

What is the Duty of Care of Waste?

Generating waste is something that we all do, but not all of us are aware of how to dispose of it sustainably. The Duty of Care indicates how you’re to take care of waste, meet legal legislation and promote environmental sustainability.

To meet the Duty of Care, you must:

  1. Separate, store and transport waste to prevent pollution and reduce the risk to human health.
  2. Make sure that waste is transported and handled carefully by businesses that are authorised to do so.
  3. Complete waste transfer notes with a full, accurate description of waste and keep a record of the waste that’s generated and disposed of.

Preventing Waste Crime.

Depending on how you choose to dispose of waste, you may be illegally disposing of your materials! The Duty of Care for Waste is used to eliminate the risk of waste entering the hands of illegal operators who don’t deal with waste in accordance with the law.

Other examples of crime include running a waste site without a permit. When you choose skip hire Preston or any other waste collection services, you need to make sure that you can trust the company to take care of the waste.

The skip hire company that you choose should prevent waste being exported and dumped illegally, meeting and exceeding your project requirements and stringent laws.

Reducing Waste Pollution.

Waste pollution is a serious environmental problem globally. There are several regulations that are implemented to lessen the impact, one of these being separated waste collections. Waste collections have seen a dramatic improvement in the volume of waste that’s sent to landfill, ultimately preventing the volume of hazardous waste that’s combined with ordinary waste.

When waste is taken to the landfill, hazardous waste doesn’t stop here! Materials like asbestos, chemicals, plasterboard and paints can penetrate into the soils where they will eventually reach groundwater and contaminate drinking water resources- posing threat to health.
