There are lots of waste disposal businesses to choose from in the United Kingdom, so what things should you look out for when choosing a Waste Management business to clear your waste?
4 Things To Look Out For When Choosing A Waste Management Company
1. Make Sure They Provide The Services You Need
When searching for a waste carrier to dispose of your waste, it’s important that you don’t waste time, so before talking to a waste business, make sure that they provide the services that you need. For example, if you’re disposing of general waste and need a skip, but you’re going to place the skip on a public highway, make sure that the business can help you acquire a skip permit. On the other hand, if you need to dispose of harmful or hazardous materials such as asbestos or waste electrical and electronic equipment, make sure that the business can provide the appropriate hazardous waste management services.
The talented team of waste professionals can offer disposal and management solutions for a diverse range of wastes. These includes commercial services such as, wheeled bin and van collections, construction services such as, plasterboard compaction and grab loader services, and a range of skip hire services throughout areas such as London, Kent, Maidstone, Bromley, Dartford, and Gravesend.
2. Check Their Experience
Before contacting a business, it’s important that you make sure they have the appropriate experience within your industry. There are numerous waste disposal businesses who operate solely within specific industries, such as healthcare waste disposal companies, however many businesses operate in a diverse range of industries. So if you’re choosing a business with a wide range of experience, make sure that they have experience working within your industry and have a portfolio of happy clients.
Our list of previous clients includes builders, construction and demolition businesses, facility management companies, fit out businesses, retailers, schools, and more. We have worked alongside companies such as Invisible Group, Lawmens Limited, and New Star Environmental. You can learn more about our previous projects by reading our testimonials and case studies.
3. Ask About Their Environmental Policies
Waste can be very harmful to the environment, even if it is not classified as hazardous waste, it can still pose a significant environmental threat. The importance of fighting climate change and doing our part isn’t restricted to issues in other countries or migrating animals in arctic environments. Climate change has the potential to unleash serious negative impacts on the United Kingdom, with the potential for catastrophic damage. For example, one potential outcome of climate change in an increased risk of flooding in both inland and coastal areas. As such, it is essential that you only choose an environmentally committed company to dispose of your waste. After all, you wouldn’t want your recyclable waste being sent to landfill?
Environmentally friendly waste management practices aren’t just ideal for the environment; they’re also a great way to save money. Our hands-on and integrated approach to waste management will work hard to find ways to turn your waste into revenue generators. For example, one of our clients reported a cost saving of £50k.

4. Make Sure They’re Registered
You have a legal responsibility to ensure that your waste is disposed of responsibly. Last year the Environment Secretary Michael Gove launched a review into organised waste crime. This highlighted the importance of checking the credentials of any waste firms your business works with. So in order to make sure that your business disposes of your waste in a responsible and legally compliant manner; you need to check if a waste management business is registered, which can be done using the Environment Agency website. For example, if you search for RTS Waste Management, you will be able to verify that we are a registered Carrier, Broker, Dealer – Upper Tier.
Additionally, as there are numerous different pieces of legislation that govern the disposal of waste, some of which originate from European Law (and could change depending on the Brexit outcome), it’s essential that your business consults with experienced professionals for waste disposal.
