Waste Management: Reducing your disposal costs

Waste management is the collection, transport, processing, recycling or disposal, and monitoring of waste materials. The term usually relates to materials produced by human activity and is generally undertaken to reduce their effect on health, the environment or aesthetics.

Waste management & reducing your disposal costs

When carrying out a large domestic or commercial project, waste disposal is usually something that is overlooked when trying to cut costs. But the costs can be cut significantly most projects rely on the same skip being used for multiple exchanges, with the principle of the skip being used for mixed waste. 

However, with the correct waste management and a realistic understanding of the waste being produced that will be leaving the site, costs can be cut if the waste is segregated into separate skips.

Why can it work out cheaper?  The main culprit is labour

As an example of the savings that can be achieved, general skips for mixed waste retail at a price of £260, including relevant taxes.  

Let’s say this mixed skip is going to contain the following most common elements of waste; wood, landfill and hardcore. If you had adequate space for three separate skips, you could save potentially £100 plus. 

The cost of a skip for clean hardcore starts from £120, depending on the location. If the waste is separated into individual skips, it cuts down on the cost of labour as we can tip these skips at designated waste areas at our waste transfer site with no need to pick or sort the waste. 

So, it ultimately saves money for you, along with saving money for us, as it saves money on labour and time.
