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. They implement efforts to control environmental pollution, and further encourage the conservation of plants, animals, and other natural resources. It doesn’t end there!

Regional pricing – skip hire costs differ by location, it could be higher or lower. A skip that would cost you £50 in London, for instance, may cost you less in Wormwood-Scrubs.

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 Wormwood-Scrubs

The process of hiring a skip is often difficult, especially if you want to get a skip hire permit as well. We know about all of these difficulties at Norris Wormwood-Scrubs. The following concerns may be attached to skip hiring in Wormwood-Scrubs: local council laws, double yellow lines, small gardens, narrow paths, congestion zones, limited front space, red routes, and pedestrian only lanes. We know that the population in Wormwood-Scrubs is increasing on a daily basis, meaning getting a space to place a skip will soon become more difficult. However, you can make use of our rubbish removal services, instead of worrying about renting a skip and hustling for a skip hire permit.

Skip Hire Rules and regulations

For “controlled waste” deposit, recovery and removal regulation, a new waste licensing system replaced the 1974 Control of Pollution Act in 1994. Liquid or solid waste from industrial, commercial, and household processes are called controlled wastes. The license is not needed by those who only dispose of waste from their personal gardens. Anyone applying for the license has to show proof that they can handle 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”.

People who create, bring in, convey, store, treat, or remove controlled waste were given a new duty of care in section 34 of the Act. 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.” The special waste regulations 1996 and the hazardous waste regulations 2005 are in charge of controlling the way waste is disposed.

Skip Hire Permits

To place a skip for a construction project on any public land, you need a skip hire permit. Using land that is not yours to place the skip means you must have a skip hire permit. 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. 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. Depending on your location and the size of the skip involved, £20 should be able to get you a skip hire permit. Some skip hire permits cost higher than £20, possibly £60, £80, and up to £100. Any questions you have on pricing can be answered at the local council office. At Norris Wormwood-Scrubs we feel duty bound to ensuring you hire a skip without stress. We can get you a skip hire permit and deliver the skip you hire to save you stress.

We recognize these recycling targets at Norris Wormwood-Scrubs and here they are: The Environmental Agency is on a mission to make sure the environment in England and Wales is improved and 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 Environmental Agency also endeavors to make sure land, air and water are constantly improved in terms of quality. They implement steps that aim to control pollution in the environment, encouraging efforts towards preserving natural resources as well. It doesn’t stop at that! They also provide enlightenment for people on better waste control methods such as recycling household waste. 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 how much the quantity of waste need to be lowered for the purpose of landfills in certain areas of the UK. Inclusions were made for landfills to only take treated waste from 2007. Starting from the most recent year, these are the targets: In 2015, only 35% of the waste collected for filling UK landfill sites in 1995 should be collected. Only 50% of the waste taken in 1995 should be taken for landfill sites in the UK in 2013. The quantity of waste taken to landfill sites in the UK by 2010 should be 75% of what was taken in 1995. Also, these targets were introduced by Waste Strategy 2000, for the recovery of waste and achieving the landfill directive: y 2015, 67% of the waste has to be recovered, 45% recovered by 2010, 40% by 2005.

Natural recycling targets were published by the government in Waste Strategy 2000 and are:

By 2015, 33% of household waste should be composted or recycled. By 2010, 30% of household waste should be composted or recycled. No less than 25% of household waste should be composted or recycled in 2005, local authorities were set at 30% for 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. Wood, vehicles, composting, clinical waste, building materials, batteries, paper, printer cartridges, plastic, furniture, glass, oil, metal, electricals and electronics, computers, and more are recyclable.
