The company as a specialist company having recognised responsibility for environmental matters, place high priority on environmental affairs with regard to company operations and the range of services offered to customers. The company operates a policy of effecting continual improvement and change in accordance with developing knowledge and changing environmental requirements and will comply with the directives from the Environmental Agency.
The company's staffs are aware of the environmental sensitivity of the business sector in which the company operates, and seek to continually develop the company environmental compliance. Due to the need for continual improvement, it can never be possible to detail fully the company environmental activities, but the following specific objectives form the basis of the company policy.
All Company operations must be carried out with due regard to all appropriate and relevant legislation and regulatory considerations.
The company will continue to make available resources to ensure that suppliers and customers are made fully aware of their environmental, legislative responsibilities and related activities.
The company will take whatever measures may be necessary to ensure that the collection, transportation, storage, recycling, reclamation and disposal of waste do not become hazardous to public health or the environment.
Controlled waste (IE general and specific waste) must not be stockpiled or treated (including bonfires) at company sites or premises without the appropriate waste management license from the environmental Agency (Waste Management Regulations Section 33).
The company recognises that the Control of Pollution Act; Duty of Care Regulations gives them the responsibility for all of their waste until its final disposal site. This requires the prevention of uncontrolled releases of materials.
Any special (i.e. hazardous) waste must be disposed of according to the Special Waste Regulations 1996 and the consignment note procedure followed.
Considerate Contractors guidelines will be followed on site as applicable in order to minimise disturbance to local environment.
The company will only use disposal facilities where the level of operational control and environmental compliance is deemed to be of a suitable level, and represents responsible Waste Management. This therefore means that not all appropriate licensed disposal facilities will satisfy standards required by the company.
The company will ensure that all transportation and the disposal of waste is covered by the appropriate documentation to ensure that the duty of care (section 34) of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 is fully complied with, regarding controlled waste transfer notes and waste description. The company will ensure that every effort is made to police the compliance of third parties within the legislation.
The company co-operates with, and assists to the best of its ability, officers of the waste regulatory authorities in the exercise of their duties. The company has a policy of compliance with the codes of practice and guidelines published by the national association of waste disposal contractors in the promotion of high environmental standards for the waste industry.
The company requires its staff to advise senior management of any concerns they may have regarding poor practice by a waste disposal contractor, whether a NAWDC member or a non-member, or about any acts by a NAWDC member which might be detrimental to the environment.
The company constantly updates it's knowledge and ability to satisfy the increasing need to obtain positive benefits from volumes of materials which comes under the company's control, which means that the issue of recycling, waste minimisation, waste to energy and the most environmentally appropriate disposal options are fully assessed and reviewed.
The Environmental policy of company name is one of continual review, and is subject therefore to frequent review and development. Its ever-widening customer base and public judge the company's continued environmental responsibility in general, while being driven enthusiastically by senior management.
