Waste Disposal And Saving Money – Is Waste Segregation The Answer?
According to an independently researched report by the Renewable Energy Association (REA) on the collection of food waste and other such biowastes, separate food and biowaste collections could result in cost savings for businesses and local authorities.
Additionally, in most scenarios, it was noted that by improving their management of food waste, businesses can reduce their carbon footprint by reducing the amount of waste sent to landfill, helping the United Kingdom work towards their 2020 recycling target, which is a recycling target of 50% by 2020.
Currently the UK is at a recycling level of 45% and whilst that is indeed close to the target, our recycling rate is falling. As such it is very important that all businesses and individuals do everything that they can in order to improve their waste management practices and recycle as much as they can.
What Are The Monetary Advantages Of Recycling For Businesses?
In addition to the environmental benefits of increasing the amount of waste recycled by your business, there is a potential for significant reductions in costs.
Indeed, by implementing waste segregation practices and collecting food waste separately, you can reduce the weight of general waste produced by your business, which results in a lower cost for general waste disposal. This is due to the lower overall weight which results in a reduction of any excess weight charges on Trade Bin Collections.
However, this is not the only area in which your business will save money through waste segregation practices. In addition to paying lower fees for disposing of your general waste, you will also save money by choosing to recycle your food waste. This is because the gate fees at food waste collection sites such as anaerobic digestion or composting facilities have significantly lower fees in comparison to landfill disposal. At RTS Waste all general trade waste does not go to landfill because we target zero landfill. All trade general waste goes to EWFW Energy from Waste as a Recovery process.

A Waste Solution That Follows The Waste Hierarchy
Whilst recycling is indeed preferable to disposal, the ideal solution is a zero waste solution. That is why we are committed to providing London waste disposal solutions that focus on Reuse, Recycle and Recovery in that order first and foremost.
We understand that the disposal of waste has the potential to damage the environment. For example, when disposed of in a landfill, items of food waste break down and release methane gas into the atmosphere. Methane is a very powerful greenhouse gas, contributing to climate change and global warming.
When many people think of greenhouse gasses, they often imagine fossil fuels releasing gasses such as carbon dioxide into the air. However, did you know that methane, the gas produced by items of food waste in landfills is about 20 times more potent as a greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide? So, whilst strategies such as a cycle to work scheme are fantastic ways to help your business reduce its carbon footprint, you could reduce your bottom line and help the environment at the same time by implementing a waste recycling solution that segregates and recycles food waste.
As a licensed Carrier, Broker, Dealer – Upper Tier, we are committed to providing high quality solutions and services for the disposal of waste in manner that follows the waste hierarchy.
