Rubbish Removal: What to expect from a Waste Management ServiceApril 23, 2023
Many people may not be aware of the key role licensed private waste companies to play in keeping the UK’s waste matters in good order. Fortunately, a well-established and smooth-running waste management system is in place, and this network of efficient junk collection stretches across all towns and cities.
This involves a waste management grid that is able to service the public and businesses and attend to local needs effectively. It also gives the Local Councils the added space to be able to promote recycling initiatives and improvements to waste processing activities.
Supporting this are innovations in technology which are providing the waste management role players with smart solutions which include digitization. This in turn is helping waste processing become more impactful and sustainable.
As a local waste management company operating in the Wirral, Ellesport, and Liverpool areas, Junk Removal Wirral is at the forefront of technological advances. Day-to-day junk removal and rubbish disposal are what we do, while at the same time giving ourselves forward-thinking recycling targets so that we can make a difference.
Being Smart about Waste
Never has the focus on managing waste and reducing the impact of waste been greater. It is a wave of consciousness that, for particularly good reason, is creating awareness of the need to reduce waste and improve our rubbish habits.
In doing so strides are being made to be smarter about waste. The drive is worldwide, with many countries showing the way. One of the ways to optimize waste more effectively appears to be through the use of sensors. These sensors are placed in strategic locations and help junk removal companies become more efficient with rubbish collection by being able to have advanced information about the levels of waste they are collecting.
While this isn’t going to stop the annual levels of waste from reaching some 200 million tons in the next few years, it makes the collection process more cost-effective.
Which Waste are we Talking About?
It should be remembered that more than half of this waste is construction and demolition waste and a small percentage, some 2 % is hazardous waste. This means that household recycling levels also are the target of authorities hoping to reduce the pressure on disposal into the landfill.
But largely household waste only comprises 10% of landfill materials in the UK, indicating that recycling is gaining momentum. Still, an ambitious plan is in place to increase current the levels of household recycling through systems that encourage the separation of garden waste, collection of dry leftovers, and collection of nutrient-rich wastes, specifically.
On a smaller scale, the whole policy system proposes to enhance domestic recycling in different ways. For example, it promotes the door-to-door collection of dry leftovers, the separation of garden wastes, and the weekly gathering of alimentary wastes. Ultimately, these measures are expected to substantially raise the proportion of household recycling, reaching up to 65% before 2035.
The Tracking of Waste
The concerted efforts made to track waste to ensure that it ends up where it should. helps direct waste materials away from landfills. This means that waste can be better directed to benefit the circular economy.
The term circular economy is the new thinking, meaning that the life of a waste product should not come to an end as it does by the so-called linear economy. This includes the concept of waste-to-energy, which is the process by which energy is generated by converting waste products not suited for recycling, into energy.
Tracking doesn’t cover all waste categories, unfortunately, with some categories escaping the radar. These are relatively minor categories like health care waste, asbestos, and rubble, including plasterboard.
In order to participate in the tracking system, companies are encouraged to participate through a duty of care programme which operates electronically. This is a reporting system that helps track the quantity and destination of production rejects.
Other Measures to Control Waste
A lot of the costs incurred in waste management come from the first part of the cycle: rubbish collection. It involves trucks, labour, and fuel, the cost of all of which seems to be rising all the time.
Add sensors to bins.Clearly, waste management companies have realized that by becoming more efficient in the collection of rubbish, money can be saved, and it is a way to curb costs. One way is to put sensors in bins.
Learning from various cities around the world that have taken the initiative to do so, it is apparent that the procedure of placing sensors in bins helps negate the expense involved in picking up a waste bin when the volumes don’t yet qualify for it. It means that only full bins are collected, resulting in savings on operating and collection costs.
Pay only for what You throw Away.The next innovation is a system where the amount you pay for waste removal is in line with what you generate. In other words, it is a kind of reward system encouraging less domestic waste coming from households.
Monetary incentives & deposit return schemes.This is an effective way to take items like glass bottles out of the waste equation and can be extended to car tires and items like cartons. It has been found that with a financial incentive, people are more disposed towards recycling. There has been a lot of success with the collection of single-use plastics this way, which shows that it is an effective way to improve recycling levels.
