The team at Motion Hire Ltd provide grab hire services for inert, non-hazardous waste materials at domestic and commercial properties throughout Beckenham and the nearby areas. We are trained to collect, recycle and redistribute biodegradable materials, such as top soil and aggregates, so they can be reused for a sustainable future. However, there are some dangerous items which skip hire and grab hire companies cannot dispose of, requiring the assistance of specialists that comply with the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE) and Hazardous Waste regulations.
1. Determine if your waste is hazardous
There are many different types of hazardous waste products that can be thrown out during a home renovation or commercial refurbishment, which includes the following:
If in doubt, Beckenham clients can contact our skip hire and grab hire team for advice on the type of waste they need removed, in addition to top soil and aggregates.
2. Separate hazardous and non-hazardous waste
It is important to separate hazardous from non-hazardous waste to maintain UK health and safety codes at your Beckenham property. This will additionally prevent recyclable waste, such as top soil and aggregates, from getting contaminated before they are screened and checked at a local recycling facility. Commercial sites often produce different kinds of waste, so it is important for a Site Waste Management Plan (SWMP) to be set up and monitor it.
3. How to get rid of electrical items properly
Electrical products need to be handled in compliance with WEEE regulations because electrical items contain hazardous materials, such as mercury. If improperly disposed of, these materials can have a detrimental effect on the environment. Our skip hire and grab hire team can discuss with Beckenham clients how to safely remove these from their premises, especially if they are clearing out old household products, moving offices or demolishing former commercial buildings.
4. Understand UK waste disposal regulations
It is very important that all waste handling and grab hire services operate within the current UK laws, especially if your Beckenham property contains hazardous items. When using our skip hire or grab hire company, the team we supply is fully qualified to collect and remove top soil, aggregates and biodegradable waste in accordance with the following:
• Environmental Protection Act (1990)
• Duty of Care Regulations
• Controlled Waste Regulations (2012)
We can advise clients in Beckenham how to arrange to have hazardous waste collected on their behalf, such as contacting their local council authorities.
5. Choose a reputable skip hire and grab hire company
When choosing a company to manage waste removal and site clearances, Beckenham clients can check how reliable their skip hire and grab hire services are by confirming their Waste Carrier credentials on the Environment Protection Agency (EPA) website.
