Waste management obviously has health and environmental implications which in turn creates the need for regulations in the disposing of that waste. This page provides you with downloads and lists of some of these regulations and our licensing and certification so please read it carefully if you are interested.
Here at Economic Skips Ltd we strive to ensure that we maintain all environmental standards and always try to find solutions other than landfill when it comes to disposing waste.
There are many important economic and environmental reasons for effectively recycling as much as you can. Also there are some waste types which are governed by legislation meaning that they have to be transported and disposed of in a certain and very specific way.
These laws are put in place to protect the environment from the waste produced and to reduce the risk of it being harmful to people as well.
