What Happens to the Waste?
At Ledbury Skip Hire, we understand that recycling and waste disposal has a direct effect on both our domestic and trade customers. As we manage waste from Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Worcestershire and further afield, we have heavily invested in our waste disposal management services.
Not only does this mean that your domestic, commercial and building waste will be disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner, but will also allow you or your company to manage waste more effectively.
The environmental impacts of recycling wood are astronomical in that it can aid the preservation of natural resources, trees and habitats, as well as help maintain air quality, reduce soil erosion and extend the lifespan of landfills. Refurbishment is another popular use for recycled wood.
Our green waste skips can be used for leaves, weeds, grass, plant and cuttings. Cutting down large trees and branches as well as placing larger and heavier items on top will push the smaller green debris down to help maximise space in the skip. A popular recycling method for this type of waste is composting.
Soils and Inert Waste
We are partnered with licensed facilities that are able to recycle an extensive range of soils and inert waste, which is commonly produced from quarries and mining areas. Recycling potentially contaminated materials such as these will help reduce your company’s carbon footprint and minimise your impact on the environment.
Hardcore & Aggregate Recycling
These materials are mostly a result of construction and demolition waste, consisting mainly of broken down brick, concrete and tiles. Recycling them using the proper methods will help reduce the risk of contamination as well as allow them to be recycled for reuse in the construction industry.
The recycling of metals is very important as they are likely to become more expensive and difficult to obtain in the future. At Speedy Skips we are able to assist with the recycling of all types of metal grades, including iron, steel, stainless steel, aluminium, copper and more.
Mixed Waste Recycling
Mixed waste recycling refers to unsorted domestic or trade waste and can include any combination of plastics, metals and green waste. To be recycled efficiently, mixed waste has to be separated and processed using the necessary methods.
