Targets for Waste Recycling

All waste management agencies now have some recycling targets to meet, which are set by the Environmental Agency and the government. We at Norris Pleshey-Castle acknowledge these targets and here they are: The agency charged with protecting and improving the English and Welsh environment is the Environmental Agency. There are several government organisations and local authorities they work with to ensure that their targets are met, and that other environmental services they have to offer get to the areas where they are needed. The Environmental Agency also strives to improve the quality of water, land, and air continuously. The agency strives to control environmental pollution and promote the conservation of animals, land, and natural resources. That’s not all! They also educate people on issues that are related to the environment, promote household product recycling to reduce its quantity, better waste disposal standards, and so on. Call 08708 506 506 to connect to the head office of the Environmental Agency, located in Bristol at Rio House, Waterside Drive, Almondsbury BS32 4UD or just visit their office in your region. A landfill directive has been released in relation to Government Targets. The directive released contains government targets aimed at reducing the amount of waste taken to landfill spots in the UK. Starting from the most recent year, these are the targets: The quantity of waste taken to landfill sites in the UK by 2015 should be 35% of what was taken in 1995. The waste taken to landfill spots in the UK should be 50% of the amount taken in 1995 by 2013. The quantity of waste taken to landfill sites in the UK by 2010 should be 75% of what was taken in 1995. To help make the landfill directive achievable and recover waste, the following targets were also introduced by the Waste Strategy 2000: 45% of all waste should be recovered by the end of 2010, 67% of waste should be recovered by 2015, while 40% of waste be recovered as of 2005. The government published the natural recycling targets by the Waste Strategy 2000. Below are the targets: Composting and recycling should be carried out on 33% of household waste as of 2015. By the year 2010, 30% of household waste should be either recycled or it should be composted. The target projects that, as of 2005, 25% of household waste should either be recycled or composted, and every single local authority was to be 30% in the same year. Local authorities can now be assisted to do more recycling through the government issued “Waste Performance and Efficiency Grant” which will also help reduce waste and landfill diversion. A list of materials that can be recycled include: wood, vehicles, composting, clinical waste, building materials, batteries, paper, printer cartridges, plastic, furniture, glass, oil, metal, electrical and electronics, computers, and various others.

Other Skip Hire Pricing Factors

There a couple of factors that should be taken into consideration when hiring a skip. We at Norris Pleshey-Castle understand these skip hire pricing factors, and we have decided to give you a brief explanation of each of them. Regional Pricing – hiring a skip will cost something different in different regions. If you get a skip for £50 in London, for example, the same size might cost you just £20 in Pleshey-Castle. The length of time you want the skip for will also affect its pricing; the longer you want it for, the higher the cost. Also bearing in mind that skip hire permits only last for a set period of time as well. Limitations and Restrictions – every skip can only take a certain amount of weight regardless of their size. Make enquiries from your service provider on the limitations they might have. You may get fined or sanctioned if you put products in the skip that are not allowed, which is why you need to find out if there are any such products.

Issues with renting skips in Pleshey-Castle

At Norris Pleshey-Castle, we are aware of all the challenges that come with hiring the best skips, especially if you have to get a skip hire permit as well. 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 Pleshey-Castle. We are also aware of the increasing population in Pleshey-Castle, which will mean increased difficulty in skip hiring in the near future. Our waste management services are readily available if you wish to skip the whole task of skip hiring.

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. Controlled wastes are wastes from industrial, commercial, and household processes in solid or liquid form. If you only do personal garden waste removal, however, you do not require the license. To acquire the permit, all applicants need to show they are fit to hold it. Anyone applying to own a new site has to have the Waste Management Industry Training and Advisory Board (WAMITAB) certificate, which proves they are “technically competent”.

In section 34 of the act, the duty of care for all those who make, bring in, move, treat, store or remove controlled waste is available. The Act stated as follows: “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.” The special waste regulations 1996 and the hazardous waste regulations 2005 are in charge of controlling the way waste is disposed.

Skip Hire Permits

You need a skip hire permit if you want to hire a skip for a construction project and will have to place it on public land. Skip hire permits are required when you intend to use a piece of land you don’t own to place the skip. This land could be a federal highway, government road, a street, or could be owned by a third party. You can use your own land or space without a skip hire permit if you have it, only ensuring you don’t cross into land that isn’t yours. If you happen to cross into someone else’s land who isn’t a part of your project, or invade another person’s privacy with the skip, it could be seized or you could 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. Some skip hire permits cost higher than £20, possibly £60, £80, and up to £100. The local council office can provide you with the specifics you need on pricing. At Norris Pleshey-Castle we feel duty bound to ensuring you hire a skip without stress. You don’t need the hassle involved with getting a skip hire permit because we can get it for you as we deliver your choice of skip. Request an online quote and we will include the cost of getting a skip hire permit, which would be excluded, of course, if you have property to use. Our skip hire service can come with skip hire permits that are valid for 14 days. You can reach us now on 020 8698 8000 if you need to know more details on skip hire permits and other waste disposal services.

Tested skips with certificate

If you’re using a skip hire service for the first time, you might be worried about how safe and effective the skip will be during use. At Norris Pleshey-Castle, we make sure you get the skip size you want, and make sure they are tested with certificates. Therefore, if you need a closed or open skip, you can rely on us to make it available to you with proof of efficiency and quality.

Prohibited Items

At Norris Pleshey-Castle, a lot of different waste types are acceptable to be put in our skips. But there are restrictions on certain products, and they are not allowed in our skips. We can just take them and get them treated for you – depending on how safe those materials are. Medical waste, gas canisters, air conditioning units, heavy duty batteries, fluorescent light bulbs, television sets, refrigerators, and aerosols are prohibited from being in our skips.

Recycling Targets/Landfill Policy

The Environmental Agency and government have been setting recycling targets for some time now. We at Norris Pleshey-Castle acknowledge these targets and here they are: The Environmental Agency is on a mission to make sure the environment in England and Wales is improved and protected. Many government organisations and local authorities are in place to ensure recycling targets are met, and that areas needing environmental services receive the services they have available. This agency also works to regularly improve the quality of water, land and air. They set up systems to regulate environmental pollution, and also promote the preservation of plants, animals and other natural resources. They don’t stop there either! The body works to educate the general populace on environmental issues to improve waste handling standards, by encouraging more recycling of waste in the household to cut down on overall waste quantity. 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. To handle Government Targets, a landfill directive was issued. It states that targets for lowering the quantity of waste taken to landfill spots in the United Kingdom. It further stated that, from 2007, landfills were to only take untreated waste. From the most recent year, the targets are the following: No more that 35% of the waste retrieved to use for landfill sites in the UK should be retrieved by 2015. In 2013, only 50% of the waste collected for filling UK landfill sites in 1995 should be collected. No more that 75% of the waste retrieved to use for landfill sites in the UK should be retrieved by 2010 Furthermore, the following targets were introduced by the Waste Strategy 2000, for 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 of 2010, 40% of waste should be recovered as of 2005.

The natural recycling targets were published in the Waste Strategy 2000 by the government. These targets were:

33% of household waste has to be composted or recycled in 2015. 30% of household waste has to be composted or recycled in 2010. By 2005, 25% of household waste should be composted or recycled – while that of each local authority was 30% as of the same year. A ” Waste Performance and Efficiency Grant” was issued by the government to assist local authorities in more recycling, reduction of waste, and landfill diversions.
