Waste Management Legislation
All organisations must, by law, responsibly manage the waste they produce. However the ever-changing legislation can seem like a minefield. HSM UK’s people work hard to help customers keep abreast of the regulations and find the right waste management solution for their needs.
There is a public and political push towards a consolidated effort to recycle and reuse surplus materials where possible to reduce the amount of waste directed towards landfill. Fees to dispose of waste at landfill are set to increase yet further in the near future, leading to significantly higher operational costs for companies and organisations. The unequivocal message from central government and Europe is that recycling is the future and it makes sense both commercially and environmentally.
How HSM UK can help:
In order to assess which methods of waste management are most appropriate, HSM can assist customers by carrying out a comprehensive waste audit and outlining current legislation. We then use this information to create a bespoke waste management plan which takes into account a customer’s specific requirements.
By making minor changes to the ways in which organisations dispose of their waste, huge steps can be taken towards a cleaner, greener future. One such simple change could be collecting waste by type and recycling one or more of the separated components. This has the benefits of not only creating a safe environment in which to operate, but of reducing landfill fees, aligning a company with legislative requirements and creating a sustainable and flexible internal operation.
HSM has the knowledge, the connections and the experience to ensure organisations not only meet current guidelines but exceed them, helping them to address the legal requirements whilst becoming more efficient and environmentally aware.
