What’s Involved in Commercial Waste Recycling

When dealing with commercial waste recycling, it is important for businesses to remain compliant with local London environmental legislation. For this reason it is important to choose a waste disposal company that will ensure you don’t fall foul of the law.

Commercial waste recycling: WEEE

  • The WEEE directive means that all of your IT equipment must be properly recycled.
  • Computers, printers, laptops, and any other electronic devices need to be disposed of in the correct manner.
  • How can you ensure that your company’s commercial waste recycling complies, and what happens to the electronics that are recycled?

London Commercial waste recycling: Electronic equipment

The easiest way to deal with London commercial waste recycling is to hire a company that has experience and the required licenses to deal with your company’s waste in the right way and keeps an audit trail of where you commercial waste ends up.

What happens when a commercial waste recycling company takes your electronic waste? Very little ends up in the landfill. All the electronics are sorted, the hard drives wiped clean, and if the computers themselves can be reused, they are delivered to other companies that take care of redistributing them. This can be needy families who would otherwise not be able to afford a decent computer, for example. Sometimes the components are refurbished, and used in other electronics. Parts that can only be salvaged are broken up, melted down, and made into other things, from metal casings to new electronic parts.

Commercial waste recycling: General commercial waste

Your other commercial waste is processed in much the same way: every item is processed and sorted in order to be recycled or reused. Just about every single thing can be used again in one form or another, it just takes time.  A London company such as London Junk that is experienced in commercial waste recycling can do this most efficiently, as they collect items from many different sources, combine them all together, and then recycle these items in the best way possible.

Commercial waste recycling: Cost

Commercial waste recycling LondonSo how much does it cost to have some one come to your business and remove your commercial waste? It may not be as expensive as you think. It often works out cheaper than using a skip, as you only pay for the waste that is actually taken away. Once you factor in the cost of using your own labour to fill the skip, and the potential for fines and penalties if you don’t comply with regulations properly, using a commercial waste removal company is usually the most cost effective solution for your business.

When researching a commercial waste recycling company, you need to ask questions about what happens to your waste, and always get a receipt, so when officials come and ask where you waste was disposed of, you have proof. You also need to make sure the company you hire is fast and friendly, and does a good job, which you can find out by checking their references closely.
