General Waste Removal & Disposal

General Waste Removal & Disposal

General waste includes all waste from households, shops and offices, known as domestic or trade waste, which in the past headed for a municipal landfill. While it is regarded as non-hazardous, it often contains many hazardous substances such as old batteries, paint and solvents.

Waste, if not correctly managed, can be harmful to humans as it sometimes contain faecal matter (human and animal), glass and infected medical wastes, etc., which attracts insects and vermin, scavenging by animals, and leads to increased health risks, especially to workers. 

Waste management involves the following processes:

  • Collection: The waste is collected from residential, industrial or commercial areas.
  • Transportation: Waste is either taken to a landfill or to our recycling facility where it is separated, baled and resold.
  • Disposal: The waste is taken to a licenced landfill site and disposed of in the correct manner.
  • Recycling: This is when recovered waste materials such as plastics, paper, glass, metal and cans are salvaged so that they can be reused or resold.

All volumes and weights of waste collected or recycled are recorded and we provide a monthly report on those findings to our clients.   Annual reports will also be complied and made available. The benefits of having the monitoring service will be as follows:

  • Report to your Waste Officer or any other person appointed to manage the waste management activities;
  • Learn from the overall process;
  • Make effective decisions about how to move forward; and, if necessary,
  • Deal with resistance to the necessary changes within the organisation or project.
