There is a duty of care that applies to every business that produces waste – which is every business whether based at home or in other premises. Waste must be disposed of lawfully and recycled wherever possible. If you use an unregistered waste carrier in a bid to cut costs, you take a risk that they fly-tip your waste – and if that happens, you can be fined or even imprisoned. On the other hand, planning ahead can save you time and money as well as protecting the environment.
Planning Ahead Saves On Skip Hire Costs
A Control Room needed fitting out, and lots of waste material was generated that needed to be disposed of. A specialist waste management company was brought in, and they identified opportunities to midimise waste at the pre-construction phase. They wrote this into the site waste management plan (SWMP). Planning ahead meant that the project surpassed its waste targets, and reduced anticipated waste by 21 times, saving £535. That amounted to 59% of the project’s original waste budget.
What do the figures say?
You may be surprised to hear that:
- 56% of UK companies do not comply with the duty of care
- 90% of those businesses are unaware of the rules
- 94% of non-compliant businesses have fewer than 250 staff
- 1 in 10 feel that cost is a major barrier to compliance
You can save money through smart waste management and planning ahead. Don’t cut costs the risky way by using unlicensed carriers.
