The Dos And Don’ts Of Waste Removal

When it comes to waste disposal and industrial waste removal there are numerous things to consider. Here are some dos and don’ts regarding the management and disposal of waste!


DO Look Up The Relevant Legislation

There are numerous pieces of legislation that govern the removal and disposal of various different forms of waste. Some of the pieces of legislation that govern waste are: The Waste regulations, The Hazardous Waste Regulations, The WEEE regulations and various other pieces of legislation, including EU Waste Legislation.

It is very important that you follow these pieces of legislation. Failure to do so could potentially result in some serious consequences. If for example, you are disposing of industrial waste, one way that you can make sure that you follow all relevant legislation is to choose to dispose of your industrial waste using a reputable waste management business that offers a professional industrial waste removal service.

DO Consider The Environment

Waste has the potential to negatively impact the environment. As such it is very important that you consider the environment when deciding how you will dispose of your waste.

It could be very helpful to consider the waste hierarchy. This details the preferred method of handling waste from most preferable to least preferable.

  1. Prevention
  2. Preparation for re-use
  3. Recycle
  4. Recovery
  5. Disposal

The waste hierarchy will help you consider how you can prevent waste items from becoming waste, and help you to prioritise methods of industrial waste removal such as recycling, over other less preferable methods such as disposal.

DO Contact A Skilled Professional

The world of waste management can be difficult to understand. There are the numerous pieces of legislation that govern the removal and disposal of waste to understand and there are the numerous different types of waste; each with their own waste services to choose from.

It can be very beneficial to choose to dispose of your waste through a professional waste management business.

DON’T Ignore Hazardous Waste

Hazardous waste requires specialist disposal. This can be done by utilising a specialist hazardous waste disposal service provided by a professional waste management business. If your business produces hazardous waste, you will have to comply by The Hazardous Waste Regulations. Failure to do so could result in serious consequences!

DON’T Be Irresponsible With Your Waste!

Perhaps one of the most important pieces of advice with regards to waste management and industrial waste removal is not to be irresponsible with your methods of waste disposal.

BKP Waste & Recycling is a business that understands the important of health and safety. We understand that waste management and waste disposal services such as industrial waste removal can be very dangerous and as such strict health and safety protocols are very important.

DON’T Fly Tip Your Waste

This is very important. Did you know that in 2016 66 large-scale tipping sites were closed down in Solent and South Downs. According to an article written by ITV, almost 1000 hot-spots for illegal fly-tipping have been identified!

Illegal fly-tipping is a dangerous and illegal method of waste disposal. As written on in May of 2016, local authorities can issue a penalty notice of up to £400 to anyone caught in the act of fly tipping!

Even if you don’t dispose of your waste yourself, it is very important that your waste is not fly tipped. Make sure you ask the business providing you with a waste disposal service how your waste will be disposed of. Additionally it can be beneficial to ask to see their waste carrier certificate. You can visit the Environment Agency’s website and enter the business’s name or their registration number and check if they are registered or not. For example, when you search for BKP Waste & Recycling Ltd, you will notice that we are registered as a Carrier, Broker, Dealer – Upper Tier.
