In an ideal world, you’d be able to select any waste removal company and entrust them to deal with your waste in a responsible, compliant manner. However, there are some companies that don’t remove your waste properly or provide sustainable recycling solutions, or potentially they mismanage the drop-off and pick-up of your skip.To ensure that your business is working with a company it can trust, there are several questions that you can ask. Here are a few:
“What will you do with my waste?”
Asking this question of your waste removal company should produce an immediate answer. It should also include details of how they plan removal in accordance with government regulations, as well as in a manner that’s environmentally and socially ethical, which in other words, means the waste will not pollute the environment or neighbourhoods nearby.
“How will you sort, separate and process my waste?”
Not all households or businesses will generate the same kinds of waste, and you might even generate more than one type at once. Your waste removal company should provide a distinct collection and recycling process for various waste streams. For example, they should be able to separate recycle goods such as paper, plastics, glass, cans scrap, metal and wood from hard rubbish and waste such as mattresses and broken appliances.
“Do you have the necessary policies in place?”
An established waste removal company will not only have the relevant licencing from a local or national Department of Environmental Regulation, but they should also ensure that their staff is trained and educated in their areas of operation. Finally, they should have an environmental impact and occupational health and safety training policy in place.
There is no doubt dozens of potential questions you can ask a waste removal company, but the above should be able to set you in the right direction. If you’re still looking for one who can answer all these questions above with confidence, then give WM Waste Management Services a call today!
