How Good Waste Management Helps Protect Our EnvironmentJune 29, 2022
What is The Secret to an Efficient Removal Service for Your Waste Disposal?November 15, 2022
Spare a thought for the dedicated people in the waste management business that collect your rubbish every week. It’s a job that few would like to do, but those that do it remain cheerful and dedicated to the task come wind, rain, or shine!
Rubbish removal and cleaning up junk is a relentless task the world over unfortunately, and we humans continue to generate waste at a rate of knots. Getting waste management routines in place and keeping them that way is the responsibility of local councils and private waste management service providers.
What makes those so committed to keeping our environment clean? It could be the job, or is it the calling? Let’s call it the fact that there is money in waste: for those that do daily collections, they are employed, while others who are on the receiving end of recyclable waste and could be considered as entrepreneurs looking at opportunities in the waste chain.
As a licensed waste company on the Wirral Peninsula on the west coast of the UK, we are just one of the national waste management professionals picking up and disposing of rubbish in a legal and responsible manner. At Junk Removal Wirral it’s our business, and we love servicing the community to keep our county clean and free of pollution.
There are some important principles we aspire to that guide us when doing the job, providing us with the way forward and keeping us inspired on the battle against waste.
Doing the Job of Waste Collection and Management
Getting the job done often requires a positive spirit, as dealing with rubbish can’t be seen as a glamour job. Rubbish collection and rubbish disposal are all in a day’s work, and in the process, waste management must be done in a correct manner, according to the local regulations.
It is also a job that entails a good deal of interaction with the public, so waste officers need good people skills, often having to speak firmly about issues that are maybe not so legit and need correction. One of those is fly-tipping and protection of the environment, while helping guide the public and business owners on environmental issues and waste reduction techniques.
Management techniques are also required, and because the scope of rubbish collection and disposal is so large, there will be many junk cleaners doing the work. It also requires full attention to the way landfill sites are managed, as well as recycling operations.
All of this means that a deep knowledge of waste management techniques is essential, applying the law strictly.
All this said, you may start to look at our waste service providers with new eyes: they deal with the mess while at the same time are talented in the way they can communicate, organize, and manage their daily work routines.
Not only that, but they are also required to be firm and polite when dealing with tricky customers and are not afraid to be firm where required.
Be Kind to the Health of Waste Disposal Personnel
Junk cleaning personnel that go about their daily task of junk removal are exposed to some risk of ill health due to the nature of rubbish that they need to collect and dispose of. It is a small wonder that they remain so upbeat in the face of this threat. Homeowners and businesspeople can play an important part in reducing this risk.
By giving some thought to how rubbish is presented for collection and ensuring that basic guidelines are followed, rubbish can be made less of a hazard for them. While not as dangerous as hazardous or toxic waste, general waste still decays and overflows out of the bins that it is stored in.
Amongst the many causes are:
- Overflowing bins
When excessive waste is generated, and the bins are too small the result is the bulging top of the waste bin and the contents that overflows down the side of the bin or onto the floor. The obvious answer would be to get larger bins, or to in some way manage the bin in such a way to prevent the overflowing.
- Bacteria and vermin
Waste starts to decompose early in its life cycle which results in the rapid spread of harmful bacteria, arrival of vermin and the infestation of flies. This is harmful to man and nature, and in particular bacteria such as salmonella which can make people very ill. Think about the junk cleaner and help prevent this by isolating waste in such a way as to prevent contact with the person carrying it away.
- Direct contact
Direct contact with most forms of waste, particularly those with poisons and other hazardous substances can present a grave danger to the person who must collect and dispose of it.
- Water pollution
Overflowing waste can be washed away into watercourses and end up in rivers or the ocean. This in turn presents a risk to all animal life that is in water. Also, it could end up polluting our drinking water, posing a health risk to human life.
- Air pollution
Gases like methane from waste reach the atmosphere and are a direct cause of greenhouse gases that result in climate change.
Prevention is paramount and taking a few concerted steps will also benefit the health of those we entrust to removal our waste.
