Waste Recycling Targets

The government and the Environmental Agency have set new targets to be reached by all recycling agencies. Norris Barnsbury experts recognize these targets, which are: The English and Welsh environment is protected and improved upon by 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 also strives to improve the quality of water, land, and air continuously. Animals, plants and other natural resources, as well as environmental pollution, are conserved and controlled respectively by them through effort implementation. There is more! Among other things, the body enlightens the general populace on environmental issues, promotes the recycling of household products to decrease their piling up in large quantities, and educates on raising the standards of waste removal. 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. Government Targets already have a landfill directive issued to this effect. Targets set for lowering the quantity of waste taken to landfill spots in the country is stated in the directive. 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. That waste quantity taken to landfill sites be 75% of the amount taken in 1995 by 2010. The following targets were also introduced by the Waste Strategy of 2000 to recover waste and help in achieving the landfill directive: 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. These targets include: 33% of household waste should be composted or recycled by 2015. 30% of household waste should be composted or recycled by 2010. 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. 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. 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

There a couple of factors that should be taken into consideration when hiring a skip. We understand all of these factors on skip hiring pricing at Norris Barnsbury, and we have taken it upon ourselves to briefly help you understand as well. Regional Pricing – the cost of hiring a skip differs from region to region. If you get a skip for £50 in London, for example, the same size might cost you just £20 in Barnsbury. 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. Remembering as well that skip hire permits have a time frame and expiry dates. Limitations and Restrictions – you can’t always put a huge amount of weight in a skip just because it looks big. 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 Barnsbury

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 Barnsbury. Some of the issues with renting skips in Barnsbury 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. We know that the population in Barnsbury is increasing on a daily basis, meaning getting a space to place a skip will soon become more difficult. You can avoid the stress of hiring skips and getting permits by hiring our waste disposal service instead.

Skip Hire Rules and regulations

The Control of Pollution Act of 1974 was replaced by a new waste licensing system in 1994 to regulate the deposit, recovery, and removal of “controlled waste”. Controlled waste refers to liquid or solid industrial, commercial, and household wastes. The license is not needed by those who only dispose of waste from their personal gardens. In order to have the license, the person applying has to show that they are fit to hold it. If an applicant wishes to own a new site, they have to show how “technically competent” they are by possessing the (WAMITAB) certificate, this is the the Waste Management Industry Training and Advisory Board.

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. 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

To place a skip for a construction project on any 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. 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. 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. For as low as £20 you can get a skip hire permit – depending on the size of the skip and the council that is issuing the permit to you at the time. There are also skip hire permits for a lot more than £20, including £60, £80 and £100. Details on skip hire costs can be requested from the local council office. At Norris Barnsbury, we consider it our responsibility to ease your skip hire process. We can get you a skip hire permit and deliver the skip you hire to save you stress. Our online quotes also include skip hire permit costs, which doesn’t matter if you have your own land or space on which to place the skip.

Recycling Targets/Landfill Policy

Recycling targets were created by the Environmental Agency and government some time ago. These targets are upheld by us at Norris Barnsbury and here they are: The mission of the Environmental Agency is to ensure the improvement and protection of the environment in England and Wales. A lot government organisations and local authorities are in place to make sure they reach their targets, and that areas that need environmental services get the ones they have to offer. The agency aspires to ensure regular improvements in the quality of land, air and water as well. They work towards the control of pollution in the environment and encourage the protection of natural resources like plants and animals. It doesn’t stop at that! They also provide enlightenment for people on better waste control methods such as recycling household waste. The Environmental Agency can be contacted on 08708 506 506 or through their office in your locality, or their head office at Rio House, Waterside Drive, Almondsbury BS32 4UD. A landfill directive was released to address Government Targets. It states how much the quantity of waste need to be lowered for the purpose of landfills in certain areas of the UK. It added as well that landfills from 2007 should only take waste that has been treated. 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. Only 50% of the waste taken in 1995 should be taken for landfill sites in the UK in 2013. 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. 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.

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

33% of household waste must be composted or recycled as of 2015. By 2010, 30% of household waste should be composted or recycled. Household waste that is composted or recycled, in 2015, should be 25%, while the local authorities had a 30% target. 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. The following materials can be recycled: wood, clinical waste, metal, building materials, batteries, paper, printer, cartridges, plastic, electricals and electronics, computers, composting, and various others.
