Environmental Issues

We hold a current Certificate of Registration under the Control of Pollution (Amendment) Act 1989 and our premises have been inspected and approved by the Environment Agency and the local authority planning department.

All green waste is kept segregated from other waste and such waste is transported back to our premises and stored in dedicated storage bunkers. When a sufficient quantity of material has been collected to make it economically viable, a large shredding machine is hired and the green waste is loaded into the shredder typically using an 360º excavator fitted with a grab. The material is then generally transferred to others as raw green waste for them to screen out any large pieces of remaining wood and any contamination before they then use or sell the resulting material on for use as green waste compost. On occasions we will screen the material ourselves and then use the resulting green waste compost on our own landscape projects.

Inert waste (subsoil, brick, concrete etc.) is disposed of at a land fill site. Such material is useful to landfill site operators as subsoil is needed to cap off household waste and brick, concrete etc. is used in the construction of temporary roads. Where we are required to remove smaller quantities of such waste we would generally transport the material back to our premises on our 7.5 tonne tipper lorry. This material would then be held within a dedicated storage bunker until the bunker is full. Such material would then be loaded onto larger tipper lorries and transported to a licensed landfill site for disposal.

Litter is collected in black bags and then taken back to our premises and placed in a covered waste skip before being disposed of at a licensed landfill site.

Larger items of debris (such as furniture etc) are collected and then stored at our premises in a dedicated storage bunker. When the storage bunker is full such items are loaded onto our 7.5 tonne tipper lorry and taken to a licensed landfill site for disposal.

All scrap metals are collected by a scrap merchant for recycling.

Fridge’s, freezers and the like are taken to a licensed recycling centre where they can be drained of environmentally harmful CFC’s in a controlled environment.

Japanese Knotweed is burned on site where possible to avoid the risk of spreading this invasive weed. Where this is not possible it will be transported in covered trailers for disposal at a landfill site that is licensed to accept ‘special waste’. The landfill operator will be made aware of the nature of the material that is being disposed of as such waste generally needs to be disposed of in a designated area of the landfill site.
