Managing your waste in a sustainable manner

There are several options for managing your waste in a more sustainable manner and the waste hierarchy, outlined in the EU Waste Directive, provides a very useful routemap to encourage better practice:

– prevention;
– preparing for reuse;
– recycling (including composting);
– other recovery (including energy recovery); and
– disposal.

Business waste disposal is usually subject to different rules to household waste and you may not be able to use public amenity sites. Make sure you comply with waste legislation, including correctly handling waste, keeping the right documentation and only using licensed contractors.
