So, if you’re interested in a disposal solution for commercial waste produced by your business, get in touch with our team today and make an enquiry regarding our waste management services.

5 Questions To Ask A Waste Management Business

  1. How Can I Get A Quote?
    Every business organises and arranges for quotations in different ways, so whenever you speak to a new waste management business, ensure that you fully understand how much a waste disposal solution will cost. After all, you wouldn’t want to waste time discussing a potential future solution only to learn that it is out of your budget, or to discover hidden costs later in the process.

  2. Are You A Licensed Waste Carrier?
    There are numerous pieces of legislation that govern the removal and disposal of various different forms of waste. This includes The Waste regulations, The Hazardous Waste Regulations, The WEEE regulations and various other pieces of legislation. Failure to comply with relevant legislation can have very serious consequences, including prison sentences and fines.

    However, in addition to the current legislative requirements, you also have to be aware of upcoming changes in legislation to ensure that you maintain compliance when legislative changes take effect. For example, The Environment Bill which was given an automatic first reading will grant more powers to assist in the effective tackling of waste crime. Additionally, this bill also states that recyclable relevant waste must be collected separately from other relevant waste, and it must be collected for recycling or composting.

    As such, in order to comply with existing regulations and prepare for future changes, it is essential that you only dispose of your waste through a licensed waste management business. It’s quick and simple to check if a waste management business is licensed. All you have to do is visit the environment agency’s website and search for the name of the business, after entering their name and searching, it should inform you if the business is licensed or not. For example, when you search for BKP Group, you’ll find that we are registered as a Carrier, Broker, Dealer – Upper Tier.

    As a registered Carrier, Broker, Dealer – Upper Tier, you can have peace of mind that our team of technicians are fully qualified and are regularly trained to meet the latest safety and quality standards.

  3. Can You Manage Multiple Waste Sites?
    This question only applies to those in need of a waste solution that collects waste materials from multiple sites. However, for businesses with multiple sites, the ability to manage waste from multiple sites across the UK is a significant advantage, providing arguably a superior level of convenience as your entire waste management needs are handled by a single waste carrier.

  4. What Types Of Waste Do You Manage?
    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. As such, when considering your waste management needs, it’s essential that you pay close attention to the different types of waste produced by your business. Waste comes in a wide range of different types, classifications, and categories, so it’s important that the waste is managed in a method that is not only cost-effective but also compliant with any and all relevant legislation. For example, if you need to clear waste paint, it’s important to remember that paint is hazardous waste and as such requires specialist attention. After all, paint can contain numerous different chemicals, solvents and metals, some of which can potentially harm the environment or health if they are not disposed of in an appropriate manner.

  5. How Environmentally Friendly Is Your Service?
    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.
