They ensure that their targets are met while also offering other environmental services to areas that need them, by working with several other government organisations and local authorities. The quality of water, air, and land is continuously improved by the Environmental Agency. Animals, plants and other natural resources, as well as environmental pollution, are conserved and controlled respectively by them through effort implementation. There are still other things! The agency also puts effort in ensuring that people are up to date in environmental matters, raises waste removal standards and promotes the recycling of household products to significantly reduce the quantity of waste, among other objectives. You can contact the Environmental Agency office in your region, or visit the head office in Bristol at Rio House, Waterside Drive, Almondsbury BS32 4UD. Telephone: 08708 506 506. Government Targets already have a landfill directive issued to this effect. The directive released contains government targets aimed at reducing the amount of waste taken to landfill spots in the UK.

Other Skip Hire Pricing Factors

A number of factors matter and have to be looked into when you want to hire a skip.

Regional Pricing – every region has its own skip hire cost. You may get a skip for £50 in London and get the same skip for £20 in Downham. How long you want to keep the skip will affect the price of the skip. The longer the period of time you intend to keep it, the more likely you are to pay a higher amount.

Issues with renting skips in Downham

Skip hire is not always easy, you have to get the right one, and there’s more stress if you need a permit- we know all of this at Norris Downham. Renting a skip in Downham may come with issues such as local council laws, pedestrian only lanes, narrow paths, red routes, small parking space, congestion zones, small gardens, and double yellow lines. With the rising population in Downham, skip hiring will soon be a more challenging feat. You don’t have to worry about skip hiring and acquiring a permit, we can provide waste disposal services instead.

Skip Hire Rules and regulations

In 1994, another waste licensing system replaced the 1974 Control of Pollution Act for “controlled waste” regulation – deposit, recovery and removal. Any industrial, commercial, or household waste in solid or liquid form is referred to as controlled waste. Personal garden waste disposal does not require the use of the license. Anyone applying for the license has to show proof that they can handle it. “Technical competence” is something an applicant for new site ownership needs to show by having the Waste Management Industry Training and Advisory Board (WAMITAB) certificate .

Section 34 of the act includes the duty of care for people who are part of creating, bringing in, conveying, storing, treating, and removing controlled waste. It was stated in the Act that “any escape or waste must be avoided, waste can only be moved to an authorized person, the waste being transferred should go with a written description or you will be penalized.” How waste is disposed of is controlled by special waste regulations 1996 and the hazardous waste regulations 2005.

Skip Hire Permits

A skip hire permit is a must have for skips hired for construction projects with the intention of placing them on any public land. In regards to the land or space you would be placing the skip on that isn’t yours, you need a skip hire permit. The land in question may be that of a third party, a street, a government road, or a federal highway. You don’t need a skip hire permit if you have your own land and won’t be intruding on government or third party-owned land. But, if you place a skip in a position that infringes on the privacy of another person not involved in your project, the skip might be removed and seized, or you could even be fined. With £20, you can get a skip hire permit, but charges may differ because of the skip size or council who issue the permit. There are skip hire permits that may cost as much as £60, £80, and up to £100 sometimes. You can contact the council office to find out more about the pricing if you wish.

A lot government organisations and local authorities are in place to make sure they reach their targets, and that areas that need environmental services get the ones they have to offer. The aim of the agency is also to make sure the quality of land, air and water gets better constantly. They work towards the control of pollution in the environment and encourage the protection of natural resources like plants and animals. It doesn’t end there!

A landfill directive was released to address Government Targets. The amount of waste that requires a reduction for landfilling purposes in the UK is specified. Inclusions were made for landfills to only take treated waste from 2007. From the most recent year, the targets are the following: Only 35% of the waste taken in 1995 should be taken for landfill sites in the UK in 2015. In 2013, only 50% of the waste collected for filling UK landfill sites in 1995 should be collected.
