You will need a waste removal company’s assistance to help manage your business and commercial waste. Mind you, the city has stringent laws that guide businesses and commercial premises on waste disposal.

Below is a detailed guide on how to deal with business and commercial waste in London;

Points to consider during disposal of commercial waste in London:

  • An agreement with an authorized London waste carrier
  • Do you possess a waste transfer card or note for the financial year at hand?
  • After waste collection, are the containers cleared from those footways ASAP?
  • Is your waste in designated collection containers?

In case your answers are NO to these questions or even one of these, then you risk infringing the law!  You’ll be held liable by the authorities and get fined, jailed, or both. So what do you do?

Adhere to the laws and regulations of Duty of Care

The entire law of ‘Duty of Care’ emanates from the 1990 Environmental Protection Act; it states that every organization should in their right power handle all commercial waste disposals appropriately. This means you must:

  • Ensure your waste is safe and sound

Business and Commercial WasteYes! It might seem like a junk of useless trash but you need to watch over your waste keenly. You’ll need to ascertain that the waste disposed is not toxic or hazardous to the environment.

Needless to say, your waste has to be properly packaged to avoi

d littering. Suitable containers are required to ensure that the waste doesn’t fall out.

You should not litter your business premises or the streets below during the collection and transportation of your commercial waste.

Dropping waste on the highway during transportation amounts to fly-tipping and this can lead to hefty fines and jail terms.

Consignment Note

This is an official document or note which contains written descriptions of your business waste. The consignment is also known as ‘waste transfer note’.

By UK law, you are obliged to produce a copy of the waste removal company that you are using.  Besides that, a copy should be kept in your records for about a year.

What about the perilous waste?

Deal With Commercial Business Waste

Some commercial wastes types are considered as hazardous or perilous, implying that they pose serious dangers to the environment as well as human health. If by chance you are not sure whether the waste you produce is toxic, you can inquire from Environmental Agency personnel from the council.

Health Hazards Caused by Improper Disposal of Pesticides https://www.expresswasteremovals.co.uk/blog/health-hazards-improper-disposal/ https://www.expresswasteremovals.co.uk/blog/health-hazards-improper-disposal/#respond Mon, 14 Oct 2019 16:57:21 +0000 https://www.expresswasteremovals.co.uk/?p=4539 The use of pesticides by the UK population is on the rise with the latest reports showing an increase in among the farmers. While the use of pesticides has enabled considerable ease in pest management and ensured better yields, pesticides have adverse effects on humans, wildlife, and the environment.

To help curb the runaway effects, the Environment Agency has put in place rules and regulations on transportation and disposal of pesticide wastes.

How are people exposed to pesticides?

While pesticides are used on farms and gardens to improve crop production, the continued use seems to introduce a health risk to humans. Pesticides have artificial compounds that can remain in the environment for a long time. Some pesticides like organochlorine can stay on the surface 30 years after use, yet they had been banned. The remains in the environment expose humans and other living organisms to their effects. That explains why more people use pesticides, the higher the cases of effects.

Improper Disposal

There have been reports of the presence of pesticide residues in foods like grains, vegetables, fish, and milk. This means that foods are the other way humans get exposed to pesticides.

Pesticides can also present in water bodies. Most pesticides have polarity and solubility with water such that once they are applied in the fields; they can mix with runoff water and enter into the water bodies. The nearby agricultural activities determine the amounts of these chemicals in the aquatic systems.

Another way humans get exposed to pesticides is due to accidental release into the environment due to waste dumps, leaking pipes, spills, groundwater, and underground storage tanks. These accidents tend to release large amounts of pesticides in the environment that remain present for a long time.

An occupation where people are directly exposed to pesticides is dangerous to the workers.

Health Effects

At the moment, it is not a debate of if pesticides have health effects on humans anymore; instead, it is all about the extent. The results of the pesticides on humans and the environment have been recorded since 1962 in the environmental book Silent Spring. The acute decline of wildlife, wild bees, birds, and other aquatic life has been contributed to the continued prevalence of pesticides on the environment.

Pesticides also kill wildlife and birds by killing them indirectly. The presence of chemicals in the environment kills other insects that birds feed on — the same way the herbicides for controlling weeds kill other plants species used for food and shelter. In the end, the use of pesticides affects the whole ecosystem.

Apart from the animals, the effects of pesticides have been manifested in humans as well. There are two ways in which humans experience health effects;

  • Acute toxicity

This is a point where the harmful effects of pesticide exposure manifest within a short time. Generally around 48 hours.

Some of the conditions one can experience include; allergic sensitization, loss of consciousness, respiratory tract irritation, sore throat and cough, eye and skin irritation, and extreme weakness and seizures, and in some extreme conditions death.

More than 3 million cases of acute poisoning from pesticide exposure are reported annually, causing around 250 – 370,000 deaths every year.

  • Chronic toxicity

Long term toxicity is when it takes an extended period before the effects of the exposure to pesticides are realized. This is mostly due to the low level or gradual exposure.

Some of the conditions linked with chronic toxicity include hyperactivity disorder, attention deficit, and cancer, like non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, leukemia, and other types of solid tumor.

How to protect against the hazards

After confirming that improper disposal of pesticides can be hazardous to health, it is essential to raise a question. How do you protect from the probable health hazard?

Handling and disposing of pesticide wastes through the right channels. Simple, right?

Well, from how often the people in the UK keep getting exposed to the pesticide toxins, you might be forced to rethink if it is as simple. The truth is most people don’t have information on how to properly dispose of pesticide wastes. Most do not understand that they are hazardous chemicals that need special handling, unlike the regular wastes. Even pest elimination in London is well managed by professionals who avoid the usage of hazardous pesticides for pest control.

The best way to handle pesticide wastes by commercial and industrial scales users is to hire authorized waste disposal experts to help remove and clear the waste. For small scale users, they can easily access the several authorized hazard waste sites to either recycle or dispose of wastes.

Using an expert in disposing of is time-saving, cost-effective and reduces the probable health hazards caused by improper disposal of pesticides.

Improper disposing of pesticides has seen a rising case of health defects. While there is no way the use of pesticides can be eliminated from everyday life, those who handle them must be ready to follow the regulations and laws put in place for handling and disposition. This is the only way to keep humans, animals, and the environment from hazardous health effects.

What is Waste Management and Methods of Waste Disposal https://www.expresswasteremovals.co.uk/blog/waste-management-and-disposal/ https://www.expresswasteremovals.co.uk/blog/waste-management-and-disposal/#respond Tue, 25 Jun 2019 13:50:34 +0000 https://www.expresswasteremovals.co.uk/?p=4220 When it comes to Waste Management, most think it is a complex process. It is good to understand what Waste Management is, the importance of proper waste management and what are some methods of waste disposal.

What is Waste Management?

Waste management is the collection, transportation and the disposal of all forms of waste such as garbage and other waste products including sewage. It is composed of all processes involved in collection of waste, proper transportation of waste and the best method of disposal for each category of waste. It factors in use of proper materials and methods of handling waste as well as compliance with health codes while considering environmental regulations.

The importance of waste management cannot be under estimated and every home owner, business owner and individual needs to be aware of what waste they have to be able to dispose of it in the best way. Improper waste disposal leads to air, water and soil pollution, doing great harm to our environment. By properly disposing waste we can conserves our environment and get rid of harmful materials properly while encouraging recycling and reuse of materials.

What are the methods of Waste Disposal in Waste Management?

Unlike in the olden days, people used to bury waste in a small hole in the outskirts of their homesteads or if need be, burnt it. These days, with all the complex materials we use in our day to day lives, this may not suffice to sufficiently dispose of all categories of waste.

Here are some of the main methods of waste disposal;

  1. Landfills

A landfill is a site allocated for the main purpose of disposing garbage. It is a big hole dug in the ground with the aim of dumping rubbish. Once full, the landfill is then covered. Currently, landfills are quickly reaching maximum capacity and this is why there is need for us to reduce our waste and start reusing and recycling waste as part of our daily routine. The challenge of landfills is that once some materials breakdown, harmful substances and chemicals are released into the soil and can harm the surrounding soil and environment for many years down the line. This is why most items selected for dumping in landfills is now restricted.

  1. Recovery and Recycling

Recovery of waste is where discarded items are converted into energy in the form of heat, fuel or electricity. Recycling is the process where waste materials are turned into new products to save on the energy and process of having to dispose of them. The advantage of recycling is mainly to reduce the size of landfills by making use of waste, save on energy that would have been used to dispose it to minimize the effect of greenhouse gases, land and water pollution

  1. Incineration

This is also known as combustion and it is a method disposal technique that involves burning of waste at very high temperatures. The advantage of incinerating waste is that it reduces waste by at least 30% which reduces greatly the volume of waste unlike landfills. This is an ideal method of disposing solid waste in some countries and through this, the waste can be converted into gas, steam and heat.

  1. Composting

Composting is the process of taking garden, kitchen and plant remains and turning it into a nutrient rich material for compost. This waste is left to sit in one place for months and microbes turn it into compost which can be used for providing plants with vital nutrients.

  1. Plasma Gasification

This is a relatively new types of waste disposal where organic matter is turned into a synthetic gas by use of a plasma torch. It is still in the early stages of development and one main advantage of this method is that there is almost no waste product left behind.

  1. Energy Recovery

This is the process of turning waste that cannot be recycled into electricity, fuel or heat, turning it into a renewable energy source.

  1. Reducing

This process is where we all work to reduce the amount of waste we create. This combined effort will help eliminate the need for waste disposal and lead to a better, cleaner environment.

 

Summary

Waste management is important for the preservation of our environment

  • Work within your timing – We have busy schedules and there’s nothing more irritating than having to cancel one appointment because the rubbish removal company arrived late and they are taking their sweet time doing the task at hand. A good rubbish removal company will discuss what the best time is for you and they will make a point of making it to your premise in good time. Upon arrival, if they estimate the removal process might take longer than anticipated, they will advice you on this and you can decide how to handle this in good time without any inconvenience.
  • Trust worthy – When it comes to our personal or working space, we all hope that anyone who comes into this space will treat it well. Look out for a company that has a record of being professional, careful handling items and can also be trusted in your home or business premise. You also want to be assured that nothing will go missing when you ask the company to come collect rubbish, so look for a company that is known for their professionalism and can be trusted.
  • Great reviews and track record – Any company dedicated to doing a good job will have great referrals and reviews. Whether on their website or on social media, you can be sure to see loads of happy and satisfied customers sharing their testimonials. You can also ask family and friends for referrals because they already have first hand experience of dealing with different companies and they can recommend the one that worked best for them. Find out about their customer service, their efficiency, pricing and more before making a choice.
  • Environment friendly – Choose a company that is keen on preserving the environment. Look out for one that has eco friendly practices and uses proper disposal methods.

Summary

With these tips, you’re well on your way to choosing the ideal rubbish removal firm best suited for you.

How To Do Professional Office Waste Clearance In London? https://www.expresswasteremovals.co.uk/blog/professional-office-waste-clearance/ https://www.expresswasteremovals.co.uk/blog/professional-office-waste-clearance/#respond Mon, 06 May 2019 10:30:15 +0000 https://www.expresswasteremovals.co.uk/?p=3711 Are you an office owner or manager in London? Or do you work in an office within London? Well, I got news for you! Each year, over 80.6 milliones tonnes of office waste is generated annually across the UK. This comprises of about 24% of the entire waste we generate as a country. The interesting thing is this; despite 70% of office waste being recyclable, only a small portion of this waste ends up in recycling plants. The rest is carelessly thrown in bins and dumped in landfills. Here at Express Waste Removals, we always emphasis on the importance of combining office waste clearance with eco friendly practices.

It’s not enough that a rubbish removal company has cleared your office of all waste and rubbish. Where is the waste taken from there? Office owners and workers ought to ensure that all their office waste is removed and disposed of in an eco friendly manner.

Check out this guide on how to do proper office waste clearance in London;

  1. First and foremost, sensitize those working in the offices on the importance of embracing eco friendly practices. Office workers are the first line of defense when it comes to effective waste management. Educate them on the need for generating less waste and putting recyclable waste in a different bin. Polythene bags, plastic bottles; these can be minimized by the office employees carrying their own water, food, and bags. Generating less waste makes the office tidier and lowers your waste collection bills.
  2. Sorting office waste; 45% of the papers printed in offices end up in the trash bins by the end of the day. Offices are gradually migrating to paperless transactions, thanks to the advent of computers. But even as such, papers and printing materials are all recyclable. In order to avoid such ending up in landfills, office workers ought to sort their waste before throwing it at the nearest bin. By working with professional rubbish removal company, offices can have different bins located strategically. Recyclable waste can be thrown into one bin, while other unrecyclable rubbish is put in another. This makes things easier for the Removal Company and increases the likelihood that whatever can be recycled will end up in recycling plants.
  3. Regular waste clearance; an average adult person spends more time at work, than at home. It has been proven again and again that a clean, tidy working space helps increase productivity. Make arrangements with your rubbish removal company to have your rubbish bins emptied as frequently as needed. The waste may be removed daily, bi weekly, or weekly depending on how much is being generated. The last thing you want is customers and clients being met by the subtle stench of office waste. Even where there’s no stench, the sight of an overflowing office bin is quite a turn off.
  4. Cleaning up; a responsible rubbish removal company ensures that they clean up before taking the waste away for disposal. Bins have to be cleaned and disinfected or better still, replaced with fresh ones during every clearance. The floor, corridors and driveway should also be cleaned up to ensure no traces of waste and rubbish are left behind.

Proper Disposal of Wastes from Garden https://www.expresswasteremovals.co.uk/blog/disposal-of-wastes-from-garden/ https://www.expresswasteremovals.co.uk/blog/disposal-of-wastes-from-garden/#respond Wed, 01 May 2019 09:43:47 +0000 https://www.expresswasteremovals.co.uk/?p=3683 Finding the perfect garden garbage collectors here in London can be tiresome. Garden waste collection needs to be handled by a company that has many years of experience. Garden waste, being one of the unique wastes, needs to be handled with expertise since it can cause both positive and negative effects on the environment. Recycling Garden wastes to form mulch or compost used as soil conditioners, building humus and adding valuable nutrients to the soil, would be of great importance both to the garden owner and the environment.

The risks involved in illegal dumping of Garden waste are profoundly big;

Proper Disposal of Wastes from Garden

  • The waste might contain plant parts and seeds that may grow; invasion of exotic plant that may grow to cause a threat to the biodiversity. Native plants and animals may pose a threat of vulnerability to lack of food, disruption of the animal-plant relationship and also a replacement of other species to contain all the native species.
  • Increase fire fuel loads; Garden waste eventually gets dry and adds fuel to the already fallen debris making it easy for an accidental fire to thrive and spread fast. This might have regrettable consequences if an accidental fire occurs.
  • Accrued economic cost; illegal dumping of garden waste might cause weed spread that could be costly for those trying to eliminate it. Fire outbreaks results in loss of vegetation, loss of both animal and human lives that will be costly to rejuvenate.
  • Waterway quality; dumping of green garden waste can block water drainage system which affects water quality and affects the aquatic life. Dumping may block waterways that may result in drainage blockage, resulting in flooding.

There are better and efficient ways a company that collects garden waste should present itself. Here is what you need to know;

  1. Availability and on time; a good garden waste removal company should be able to offer prompt services. Determine if the company you are hiring can cater for your junk collection in a manner that you will be satisfied with. Here at Express Waste Removal, we offer emergency waste removal services, our crews can be dispatched to your garden in an hour or two.
  2. Well equipped; a rubbish collecting company that is well equipped guarantees you best service that you really want. Garden waste collection requires manpower with skills of handling the waste in a positive manner to the environment.
  3. Recycling the waste; consider hiring a company that will properly use the garden wastes into the productivity of the environment to make humus. An environmentally friendly company should compost the plant materials to form mulch for soil aeration and fertility.
  4. Cost; cost is a major factor to consider while choosing a company that fits and is flexible to your budget. Ensure the company you hire offers the services you really want and they are flexible to your demands.

Garden Waste Collection and Disposal
Finally, consider choosing a company that is pocket-friendly before making the final call for hire. Give priority to a company that fully understands the importance of eco-friendly handling of garden waste.  At Express Waste Removal, we are reliable and almost 95% of all your garden waste will end up being recycled. The branches and bushes we trim can be used for mulching in summer; it can be split into chips you can use to light bonfires. Very little really goes to waste. Feel free to give us a call today for a free no obligation quote. Like aforementioned, our garden waste removal crews are professional and will observe the utmost care so as not to harm your plants.

The Importance of Regular Rubbish Removal https://www.expresswasteremovals.co.uk/blog/importance-of-rubbish-removal/ https://www.expresswasteremovals.co.uk/blog/importance-of-rubbish-removal/#respond Sat, 27 Apr 2019 17:33:14 +0000 https://www.expresswasteremovals.co.uk/?p=3662 There are a thousand and one reasons why you should have your rubbish removed regularly. It doesn’t matter whether the waste comprises of domestic waste, office waste, commercial waste, or whatever. All waste poses a clear and present health hazard to those living around.

  • According to a recent bulletin released by RSPCA, around 5,000 calls are made each year all relating to littering and fly tipping. Unfortunately, the greatest victims of littering are our very own pets, and wildlife.

  • The British Medical Bulletin has found time and again that people living near landfills are more likely to suffer some health problems like low birth weight. E-waste, polythene bags, paint containers and asbestos; these should never be dumped in landfills or worse, incinerated. The fumes they emit are harmful; some studies have found that they emit cancer causing smoke.
  • Some of the most common benefits of regular rubbish removal include good health, living in a clean, tidy environment, increased productivity, and peace of mind.
  • A dirty, cluttered space is a turn off, no one really looks forward to going to a home or office with overflowing bins. A rubbish removal company will ensure that such bins are emptied on time.
  • It’s not enough to empty the bins inside your home and dump all the waste in a larger bin outside the house; this only serves to attract flies, rodents, scavengers, and the likes.

What Is The Importance Of Waste Management? https://www.expresswasteremovals.co.uk/blog/importance-of-waste-management/ https://www.expresswasteremovals.co.uk/blog/importance-of-waste-management/#respond Mon, 15 Oct 2018 10:07:06 +0000 https://www.expresswasteremovals.co.uk/?p=3435 Waste management is a crucial exercise that revolves around the quick, safe, and effective removal and disposal of waste.  There are a thousand and one reasons why we should manage waste effectively.

  • For the sake of clarity, the best waste management practices involve more than just dumping waste into your bin, awaiting its collection.
  • Instead, it’s looking at the larger picture of the impact of waste on the environment, and then initiating measures to ensure its proper removal.
  • Once you look at it that way, all the benefits of waste management will trickle down and you’ll be the greatest beneficiary! From office waste to household waste, to electrical waste or building and construction waste; there are numerous reasons for ensuring their safe disposal.

Importance Of Waste Management

    1. Good health; accumulated waste stinks; it attracts pests and rodents as well as other disease-causing microorganisms. The best way to keep your family or employees safe is to ensure that they live and work in a clean environment. Effective waste management practices help ensure that everyone enjoys good health.
    2. Good mood; who enjoys living in a dirty, badly cluttered house where cans and food leftovers litter tables and the entire floor? Which employee likes working with an overflowing waste bin behind their seat? A clean and neat environment yields positive and lively moods in us; on the contrary, an untidy and messy environment makes you stone-faced, cranky, and dull for no apparent reason.
    3. Less injuries; the waste and debris left behind after a home renovation or during building and construction can easily cause injuries. It gets even more worrisome when there are young children playing and jumping around. The rusty nails, wires and electric cables, iron sheets, glass, toxic paints and asbestos; these must be safely and quickly removed from building and construction sites in order to minimize instances of injuries.

 

  1. Healthy environment; industrial waste and eWaste are examples of harmful waste that needs to be carefully disposed of. Otherwise, they pose a huge risk to the environment if simply dumped into a landfill. There are laid down mechanisms on how exactly such waste ought to be disposed of and failure to adhere doesn’t just mess up their environment; it places you on a collision course with the law.
  2. How to do proper waste managementMore productivity; offices and businesses that have put in place sound waste removal mechanisms tend to enjoy more productivity from their employees. The staff and employees enjoy working in a clean, freshened up the environment; they are able to concentrate more on their jobs and assignments. The tidiness boosts their morale and attitude; they’ll serve customers with a smile and positivity you’d not find in a dirty workplace.
  3. The law is clear; here in the UK, the law is very clear on your obligations as a homeowner or business owner, on how you should dispose of your waste. Thus, you can’t simply leave your waste outside your gate or dump it on the highway at night; the law will punish you. By effectively managing your waste, you also stay safe from decrees and bylaws that govern the handling and disposal of waste.

In summary;

Effective waste management is a duty and obligation we all have, as long as we’re generating trash, then we have an obligation to ensure its safe disposal. It benefits us directly, it benefits those around us including our employees, plus the environment is also protected from pollution. Hiring a professional waste removal company is a worthy investment. You get the peace of mind knowing that everything is taken care of and that all your waste is ethically disposed of.
