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 Grahame-Park acknowledge these targets and here they are: The agency charged with protecting and improving the English and Welsh environment is the Environmental Agency. The Environmental Agency does not meet its targets or offer other environmental services to areas that need it all alone, because they partner with several other local authorities and organisations to achieve these goals. The Environmental Agency continuously strives to improve water, land, and air quality. They control environmental pollution, and also encourage the conservation of animals, plants and other natural resources by implementing certain efforts towards these goals. 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. A landfill directive has been released in relation to Government Targets. It reflects the goals of reducing the quantity of waste sent to landfill spots in the country. The targets, as of the most recent year, include: The waste taken to landfill spots in the UK should be 35% of the amount taken in 1995 by 2015. That the amount of waste taken to landfill spots in the UK by 2013 be only 50% of the amount taken in 1995. By 2010, the waste taken to landfill sites around the United Kingdom should be 75% of what was taken in 1995. The following targets were also introduced by the Waste Strategy of 2000 to recover waste and help in achieving the landfill directive: 45% of waste is to be recovered as of 2010, while 67% and 40% of waste should be recovered as of 2015 and 2005 respectively. The Waste Strategy of 2000 contains the natural recycling targets published by the government. Below are the targets: By 2015, 33% of household waste should be composted or recycled. By the year 2010, 30% of household waste should be either recycled or it should be 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. A ” Waste Performance and Efficiency Grant” was issued by the government to assist local authorities in more recycling, reduction of waste, and for landfill diversions. Recyclable materials were listed, which include: wood, vehicles, clinical waste, building materials, composting, printer cartridges, batteries, paper, computers, plastic, glass, furniture, oil, metal, electronic and electricals, and so on.

Other Skip Hire Pricing Factors

When hiring a skip, some factors will be important and need to be thought about and considered properly. All these factors are well understood by us at Norris Grahame-Park, and we are going to briefly help you understand as well. Regional Pricing – the cost of hiring a skip differs from region to region. You might get a skip at £50 in London, for instance, and get the same skip size for £20 in Grahame-Park. The length of time you want the skip for will also affect its pricing; the longer you want it for, the higher the cost. Not also forgetting that skip hire permits have a duration too. Limitations and Restrictions – every skip can only take a certain amount of weight regardless of their size. You have to find out if there are limitations from your skip hire service provider. Ask if there are any items that aren’t allowed in the skip and stick to the restrictions if there are, so you won’t be sanctioned or fined.

Issues with renting skips in Grahame-Park

At Norris Grahame-Park, we understand that getting the perfect skip to hire can be a herculean task – especially with the difficulties that comes with getting a skip hire permit. Some of the issues with renting skips in Grahame-Park are local council laws, pedestrian only lanes, little or no space in front, small gardens, not enough parking space, narrow paths, congestion zones, double yellow lines, and red routes. With the rising population in Grahame-Park, skip hiring will soon be a more challenging feat. You can avoid the stress of hiring skips and getting permits by hiring our waste disposal service instead.

Skip Hire Rules and regulations

A new waste licensing system was put in place in 1994 to replace the Control of Pollution Act of 1974 on the regulation of deposits, recovery, and removal of “controlled waste”. Controlled wastes are wastes from industrial, commercial, and household processes in solid or liquid form. However, people who are just disposing of waste from their personal garden were exempted from the need of the license. To be granted the license, whoever is applying is required to confirm their ability to hold it. Applications for new site ownership need to be accompanied by the Waste Management Training and Advisory Board (WAMITAB) certificate as proof of “technical competence”.

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. According to 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.” How waste is disposed of is controlled by special waste regulations 1996 and the hazardous waste regulations 2005.

Skip Hire Permits

If you’re going to place a skip you hired for a construction project on public land, you need a skip hire permit. Skip hire permits are required when you intend to use a piece of land you don’t own to place the skip. It could be land that belongs to a third party, a federal highway, government road, or along the street. If you have land or property you intend to used, you don’t need a skip hire permit, as long as it won’t intrude on land that isn’t yours. Intruding on another person’s land, privacy or space may get you fined, or the skip may be removed and seized. Depending on your location and the size of the skip involved, £20 should be able to get you a skip hire permit. There are more expensive skip hire permits; for about £60, £80 and £100. Any questions you have on pricing can be answered at the local council office. However, it’s our duty at Norris Grahame-Park to make your skip hire a smooth process. 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. Call us today on 020 8698 8000 and we will provide you with any details you might need on our skip hire permits and waste management services.

Tested skips with certificate

It is not unusual for you to be nervous about how safe and effective it will be to use a skip if you’re hiring for the first time. Along with making various skip sizes available to you, we also give you skips that have been tested and have certificates to show just that at Norris Grahame-Park. 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.

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

There are recycling targets put in place by the Environmental Agency and government. We uphold these set recycling rules at Norris Grahame-Park and you can find them below: The mission of the Environmental Agency is to ensure the improvement and protection of the environment in England and Wales. There are many government organisations and local authorities that have the duty of making sure these targets are achieved and the services they have available get to the environments that need them. This agency also works to regularly improve the quality of water, land and air. They work towards the control of pollution in the environment and encourage the protection of natural resources like plants and animals. That’s not all! 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. 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. As for Government Targets, a landfill directive was released. It states that targets for lowering the quantity of waste taken to landfill spots in the United Kingdom. Inclusions were made for landfills to only take treated waste from 2007. Beginning from the most recent year, here are the target: The quantity of waste taken to landfill sites in the UK by 2015 should be 35% of what was taken in 1995. The quantity of waste allowed to be taken and used for landfills in the UK by 2013 shouldn’t exceed 50% of what was taken in 1995. The quantity of waste allowed to be taken and used for landfills in the UK by 2010 shouldn’t exceed 75% of what was taken in 1995. 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:

33% of household waste must be composted or recycled as of 2015. No less than 30% of household waste should be composted or recycled in 2010. 25% of household waste must be composted or recycled as of 2005, even though local authorities had a 30% target in the same year. To help the local authorities recycle more and reduce waste and for landfill diversions, a “Waste Performance and Efficiency Grant” was released by the government. 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.
