Recycling Targets

All waste management agencies now have some recycling targets to meet, which are set by the Environmental Agency and the government. Norris Howe-Green recognizes these targets and they are: The agency charged with protecting and improving the English and Welsh environment is the Environmental Agency. To better meet these targets and provide other environmental services to areas in need of them, the agency partners with several other organisations and local authorities. It is also their mission to raise the quality of water, land, and air constantly. They implement efforts to control environmental pollution, and further encourage the conservation of plants, animals, and other natural resources. There are still other things! The body also enlightens the general populace on issues regarding the environment, improving waste removal standards, encouraging the recycling of household products to reduce the quantity of waste, and lots more. Reach out to the Environmental Agency in your area, or you can call 08708 506 506 to contact their headquarters located in Bristol at Rio House, Waterside Drive, Almondsbury BS32 4UD. Concerning the targets set by the government, they have released a directive. It states the targets for lowering the quantity of waste taken to landfill spots in the United Kingdom. The target is set to take effect from the most recent year and they are: That the amount of waste taken to landfill spots in the UK by 2015 be only 35% of the amount taken in 1995. That waste quantity taken to landfill sites be 50% of the amount taken in 1995 by 2015. The waste taken to landfill spots in the UK should be 75% of the amount taken in 1995 by 2010. The Waste Strategy of 2000 introduced the following targets to aid waste recovery and to make the landfill directive achievable: 67% of waste should be recovered as of 2015, 45% of waste should be recovered as at 2010, 40% of waste should be recovered as of 2005. Contained in the Waste Strategy 2000 are the natural recycling targets published by the government. Here are the targets: The target projects that, as of 2015, 33% of household waste should either be recycled or composted. The target projects that, as of 2010, 30% of household waste should either be recycled or composted. Composting and recycling should be carried out on 25% of household waste as of 2005, while each local authority was 30% in the same year. To assist local authorities in recycling more waste, reducing waste, and for landfill diversion, the government issued a ” Waste Performance and Efficiency Grant”. Here is a list of recyclable materials: computers, printer cartridges, glass, oil, electrical and electronics, furniture, batteries, paper, vehicles, clinical waste, metal, and a variety of others. To be up to date on any new entry in the targets, especially in recent years, visit the Norris Howe-Green office at Howe-Green.

Other Skip Hire Pricing Factors

Some factors are important to look into when hiring a skip. We at Norris Howe-Green understand these skip hire pricing factors, and we have decided to give you a brief explanation of each of them. Regional Pricing – every region has its own skip hire cost. If you get a skip for £50 in London, for example, the same size might cost you just £20 in Howe-Green. Pricing is also influenced by how long you want to keep the skip, the more time you want it, the higher the cost would likely be. Remembering as well that skip hire permits have a time frame and expiry dates. Limitations and Restrictions – different skip sizes also have different weight limits. Make enquiries from your service provider on the limitations they might have. Also, make enquiries about products that shouldn’t be put in it. Obey these restrictions to avoid any sanctions or fines.

Issues with renting skips in Howe-Green

We know at Norris Howe-Green that hiring the right skip can be exhausting- more so if it involves getting a skip hire permit. Narrow paths, local council laws, small gardens, double yellow lines, red routes, pedestrian only lanes, congestion zones, limited space in front, and narrow paths are the issues which usually come up with skip renting in Howe-Green. With the rising population in Howe-Green, skip hiring will soon be a more challenging feat. Our waste management services are readily available if you wish to skip the whole task of skip hiring.

Skip Hire Rules and regulations

The regulation of waste deposits, and the recovery and removal of “controlled waste” is handled by the waste licensing system that was put in place in 1994, replacing the 1974 Control of Pollution Act. Controlled wastes are wastes from industrial, commercial, and household processes in solid or liquid form. The license is not needed by those who only dispose of waste from their personal gardens. Proof of fitness to hold the license determines if it will be granted. “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 .

Those involved in the creation, bringing in, conveyance, storage, treatment or removal of controlled waste have their own duty of care in section 34 of the Act. The following was stated in the Act: “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.” Waste disposal methods are regulated by special waste regulations 1996 and the hazardous waste regulations 2005.

Skip Hire Permits

Do you want to hire a skip for a construction project that will involve placing it on public land? Then you will need a skip hire permit. Skip hire permits have to be obtained when you need to use land that isn’t your property to place your skip. It could be land that belongs to a third party, a federal highway, government road, or along the street. 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. Your skip could be removed and seized, however, if it extends into land that isn’t yours or that of those involved in your project, you even be fined. You can get a skip hire permit for £20, although the skip size and issuing council would also affect the cost. There are also skip hire permits for a lot more than £20, including £60, £80 and £100. You can contact the council office to find out more about the pricing if you wish. At Norris Howe-Green we feel duty bound to ensuring you hire a skip without stress. Why bother then with getting a skip hire permit when we can get it done for you, along with delivering the skip you hire? The cost of getting a skip hire permit is often added to the online quote you request , although this won’t matter if you have space or land for keeping the skip. Our skip hire service can come with skip hire permits that are valid for 14 days. We can be reached today on 020 8698 8000 if you want to know more about skip hire permits and other services we have in place for you.

Tested skips with certificate

For first time skip hires, the worry is often on the safety and effectiveness of the skip during use. At Norris Howe-Green, we not only provide you with skips of different sizes, we also supply tested skips with certificates. So, if the skip you require is a closed or open one, we can be trusted to provide it along with proof of quality and efficiency. Call us today on 020 8698 8000 if you have any concerns, and our experts will answer your questions.

If it is safe enough, we can take those items from you and get them treated. Items such as medical waste, aerosols, electronic appliances, gas canisters, heavy duty batteries, television sets, and fluorescent light bulbs are not allowed in our skips.

Recycling Targets/Landfill Policy

The Environmental Agency and government have been setting recycling targets for some time now. We recognize these recycling targets at Norris Howe-Green and here they are: The Environmental Agency aims to make sure the Englands’ and Wales’ environment can improve and is protected. Some government organisations and local authorities are tasked with the job of meeting their targets and making sure other environmental services available get to needed locations. The aim of the agency is also to make sure the quality of land, air and water gets better constantly. They have efforts in place for environmental pollution control and to encourage the conservation of nature. It doesn’t end there! The body educates the public on environmental matters, like better waste removal standards, by promoting the recycling of household waste to reduce how much waste they have. The agency can be contacted on 08 708 506 506, or by their office in your region. You can also visit their head office at Rio House, Waterside Drive, Almondsbury BS32 4UD. With respect to Government Targets, a landfill directive was released. The amount of waste that requires a reduction for landfilling purposes in the UK is specified. It also added, from 2007, that landfills shouldn’t take waste that hasn’t been treated. Beginning from the most recent year, here are the target: Only 35% of the waste taken in 1995 should be taken for landfill sites in the UK in 2015. Only 50% of the waste taken in 1995 should be taken for landfill sites in the UK in 2013. Only 75% of the waste taken in 1995 should be taken for landfill sites in the UK in 2010. In addition to that, the Waste Strategy 2000 introduced the following targets, to recover waste and meet the landfill directive: 67% of the waste must be recovered by 2015, 45% must be recovered by 2010, and 40% must be recovered by 2005.

Waste Strategy 2000 had published in it, by the government, the natural recycling targets, which are as follows:

By 2015, 33% of household waste should be composted or recycled. No less than 30% of household waste should be composted or recycled in 2010. No less than 25% of household waste should be composted or recycled in 2005, local authorities were set at 30% for the same year. The government issued a ” Waste Performance and Efficiency Grant” to help local authorities recycle more, reduce waste, and for landfill diversions. Here is list of materials that can be recycled: plastic, electricals and electronics, computers, composting, wood, clinical waste, metal, building materials, batteries, paper, printer, cartridges and a lot of others.
