The Environmental Agency continuously strives to improve water, land, and air quality. The agency strives to control environmental pollution and promote the conservation of animals, land, and natural resources. That’s not all!

Other Skip Hire Pricing Factors

When hiring a skip, some factors will be important and need to be thought about and considered properly. We at Norris Queensbury understand these skip hire pricing factors, and we have decided to give you a brief explanation of each of them. Regional pricing – skip hire costs differ by location, it could be higher or lower. If you get a skip for £50 in London, for example, the same size might cost you just £20 in Queensbury. The longer you need to hold on to a skip, the more expensive the skip will be, because pricing is affected by time as well. Taking into consideration that skip hire permits have a time duration. 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. Some items are prohibited from being put in the skips, find out what they are, and obey the restrictions so you don’t get a fine or sanction.

Issues with renting skips in Queensbury

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 Queensbury. Issues to be considered when hiring a skip in Queensbury are local council laws, red routes, double yellow lines, narrow paths, congestion zones, small front space, pedestrian only lanes and red routes. We know that the growing population in Queensbury will mean a more difficult skip hiring process soon. Our waste management services are readily available if you wish to skip the whole task of skip hiring.

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. People who only do waste disposals from personal gardens were not included in getting the license. To acquire the permit, all applicants need to show they are fit 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”.

The duty of care for people who manage creating, bringing in, movement, storing, treating and removing controlled waste is specified 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.” The special waste regulations 1996 and the hazardous waste regulations 2005 are in charge of controlling the way waste is disposed.

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. 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. A skip hire isn’t necessary when you have land to use and won’t be crossing into another person’s land or government 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. 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 Queensbury we feel duty bound to ensuring you hire a skip without stress. We also provide skip hire permit procurement along with skip delivery to make the whole process stress free. We include the cost of getting ski hire permits in our online quotes when you request them, which can be removed if you already have land or a place on which to put the skip.

Recycling Targets/Landfill Policy

The Environmental Agency and government have been setting recycling targets for some time now. At Norris Queensbury, we acknowledge these set recycling targets and they are as follows: The Environmental Agency is on a mission to make sure the environment in England and Wales is improved and protected. 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. 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! 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. A landfill directive was released because of Government Targets. It states that targets for lowering the quantity of waste taken to landfill spots in the United Kingdom. It stated also that from 2007, landfills should only accept treated waste. From the most recent year, the targets are the following: In 2015, only 35% of the waste collected for filling UK landfill sites in 1995 should be collected. 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. No more that 75% of the waste retrieved to use for landfill sites in the UK should be retrieved by 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.

The government published, in the Waste Strategy 2000, the following natural recycling targets:

By 2015, 33% of household waste should be composted or recycled. By 2010, 30% of household waste should be composted or recycled. 25% of household waste has to be composted or recycled in 2005, although local authority was 30% in that 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. 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, electricals and electronics, computers, and a few others.
