There are sound environmental and economic reasons for effective recycling and resource management. In addition there are a number of waste types, which are governed by specific legislation. As a result there is a legal requirement to store, transport and treat these wastes in a particular way.
The purpose of these laws is to minimise the environmental impact of the waste we produce, reduce any associated health and safety risk and move resource up the waste hierarchy.
This section outlines some of the more common legislation affecting our customers.
