Waste Pods Hemel Hempstead
If your business regularly generates waste – especially if it’s hazardous waste, or anything else that isn’t legally allowed to be put in a skip, such as waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) and plasterboard – you need to consider using a waste pod to store that waste until it can be removed, safely and legally from your Hemel Hempstead based business.
Legally, skips can’t contain:
Anything that’s hazardous to humans and to the environment. This includes: Asbestos; Oil; Petrol; Diesel; Vehicle tyres; Solvents; Any corrosive liquid; Explosive materials, and/or Gas cylinders (whether full, partially filled or empty)
Anything that could cause a health risk. This includes: Food waste, or Biological waste of any kind – including medical waste and human/ animal faeces; carcases
Anything containing any hazardous material which can cause health problems or injury when they’re processed for recycling. This includes: Florescent lighting tubes; Televisions; Computer monitors; Paints; Paint tins – whether full, partially filled or empty; Batteries; Fridges and/or Freezers
Anything that’s heavy and
Anything that can’t be processed effectively. This includes: large tree trunks and heavy aggregate (big rocks and chunks of concrete)
In addition, there are restrictions on the amount of stones, concrete and plasterboard that can be placed in a skip.
There are no such restrictions placed upon the waste that customers can put in a waste pod from Waste King.
These waste pods fit more or less anywhere. They take up no more space than a car; can often be placed out of sight behind a hedge and, although they’re the same size, they’re cheaper than a skip.
Within these pods, waste can be segregated. So, when you use Waste King to supply your waste pod, a Waste King team of Environment Agency-licensed staff will visit the pod regularly to sort, clear and then dispose of all the items in the container. It’s cleaner as far as the environment is concerned; neater for you - and easier for Waste King to sort, segregate and dispose of the waste. After collecting the waste materials from the waste pod, Waste King takes them to its site. There, the waste is separated by hand or machinery to be recycled on the spot, or sent to the local waste transfer station - which results in a 99.54% recycling rate.
This means that using a waste pod means you can be demonstrably ‘green’ - by maximising the amount of waste materials that are recycled.
