Waste in the UK
The Waste Industry is for most ‘Waste Carriers’. “Dealing with waste” is simply getting rid of it all.
Over recent years doing it in a more sustainable way has been added, but to most cost remains the key driver.
There may seem little obvious indications of innovation at first glance – especially given the publicity in the world’s press to reduce plastics and disposables.
Waste Carriers are thriving. Acquisitions are announced on a weekly basis. The Industry is thriving. The cost of waste is rising by around 10% p/annum, 5 times that of current inflation. Technology to weigh bins at the curb enable excess weight charges to be charged and landfill taxes continue to hike rates upwards. Contamination adds to costs. When untrained staff guess what to do with the waste (hidden in thick black bags) it will be no surprise why training is required.
The Waste Services Group add a completely new and fresh dimension to waste as a process and strategy, through training and acumen. We are committed to engaging with clients to achieving very real and tangible differences to larger waste strategies. Working closely with hundreds of shopping centres, property managing agents, hospitals, schools and public buildings, our engagement tackles the normally overlooked issues that add dramatically to the costs and increase the risks of employees through accidents at work.
In every area of business (excluding waste) staff and management training is at the forefront of everything you do. From PR, Health & Safety, Risk Assessment, Financial Training, etc. Oddly, with waste, there has to date been virtually none. This is because the perception of ‘It’s only waste’ seems to do away with the requirement to understand waste in more detail.
