Targets for Waste Recycling

New recycling targets have been set by the government and the Environmental Agency to be reached by every waste management agency. Norris North-Sheen experts recognize these targets, which are: The English and Welsh environment is protected and improved upon by the Environmental Agency. To better meet these targets and provide other environmental services to areas in need of them, the agency partners with several other organisations and local authorities. 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. There is more! 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. With the telephone number – 08708 506 506, you can contact the Environmental Agency head office in Bristol at Rio House, Waterside Drive, Almondsbury BS32 4UD, or contact their office in your region. Government Targets already have a landfill directive issued to this effect. It reflects the goals of reducing the quantity of waste sent to landfill spots in the country. Taking effect from the most recent year, the targets 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 the amount of waste taken to landfill spots in the UK by 2010 be only 75% of the amount 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: 40% of waste as at 2005 should be recovered, 45% of waste should be recovered by 2010, while as of 2015, 67% of waste should be recovered. The government published the natural recycling targets by the Waste Strategy 2000. The following are the targets: Composting and recycling should be carried out on 33% of household waste as of 2015. 30% of household waste should be composted or recycled by 2010. By the year 2005, 25% of household waste should either be recycled or it should be composted and 30% was set for each local authority in 2005. To assist local authorities in recycling more waste, reducing waste, and for landfill diversion, the government issued a ” Waste Performance and Efficiency Grant”. 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.

Regional pricing – skip hire costs differ by location, it could be higher or lower. You may get a skip for £50 in London and get the same skip for £20 in North-Sheen.

Issues with renting skips in North-Sheen

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 North-Sheen. Some of the issues with renting skips in North-Sheen 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. At the rate at which North-Sheen is growing in population, skip hiring will become more and 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. 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. In order to have the license, the person applying has to show that they are fit to hold it. “Technical competence” is something an applicant for new site ownership needs to show by having the Waste Management Industry Training and Advisory Board (WAMITAB) certificate .

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. It stated that “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. These lands include federal highways and government roads, third party owned lands, and land along streets. 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. 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. 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 that cost £60, £80, and even as much as £100. Any questions you have on pricing can be answered at the local council office. We make it our business at Norris North-Sheen to make skip hiring easy for you. We also provide skip hire permit procurement along with skip delivery to make the whole process stress free.

The quantity of waste taken to landfill sites in the UK by 2013 should be 50% of what was taken in 1995. In 2010, only 75% of the waste collected for filling UK landfill sites in 1995 should be collected. 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.
