Are you working on Demolition/ Fit Out/ Refurbishment/ New Build projects ?

Demolition – From Pre Demolition, Soft Strip and Full Demotion, RTS provide sustainable waste management solutions.

The environmental target will be zero to landfill as a high percentage of material from Demolition can be reused and recycled. However some projects encounter Hazardous waste (e.g. Plasterboard, Electrical Waste WEEE and Asbestos) and treated accordingly with separate collections.

A Concrete Crusher and Grab Loaders can be hired and various sized containers can be provided depending on accessibility and quantity of waste.

Fit Out or Refurbishment – Long term experience shows RTS Waste that there is considerable variability of the materials that come from Fit Out and Refurbishment sites and there is much potential to recycle these materials.

RTS Waste Management are a licensed Waste Carriers able to collect treat, reuse, recycle and recover your waste. Often Skips, Roll on Roll Offs are used on a bespoke collection services, however RTS Waste have been running a reliable and responsive  Wheeled Bin Compaction service for many years now.

We understand that many sites are constrained by space for large containers to be an unsatisfactory solution, especially when operating in major cities such as London, therefore a Timed Mobile Compaction Service can be offered whereby wheeled bins are emptied.

New BuildA Start to End Waste Collection Service can be provided by RTS Waste Management. From Ground works to Last fix we have long term Construction Waste experience. There are the traditional waste streams that are collected (See below), treated, reused, recycled and data collected for Recycle Reports for SWMPs. There will be use of Skips, Roll On Roll Offs, Grab Loaders, Mobile Compaction Service, Concrete Crushers, Wheeled Bins and to optimise recycling at source we can provide a baler to compress cardboard and plastics from the packaging material that can be bulky using up valuable space.
