The construction sectors accounts for around 50% of all the waste produced in Scotland. Whilst this is a significant proportion the good news is that construction waste is also generally highly recyclable. A combination of onsite recycling services and access to our award winning materials recycling facility enables our construction customers to divert well over 90% of the waste they produce from landfill. This ensures these valuable resources can be reused and implemented into more sustainable supply chains for the future.
We regularly advise on the development of ‘Site Waste Management Plans’ and work with construction customers to ‘design out waste’. Generating less waste reduces the cost of materials and increases skip and waste collection capacity.
Rapid turnaround times and out of hours servicing ensures our customers always have waste capacity on site and this never becomes a restraining factor on their operations.
We provide a range of construction waste collection services for materials including:
- Insulation & asbestos
- Concrete, bricks, tiles and ceramics
- Wood waste
- Glass and plastic waste
- Soils & contaminated soils
- Paints, varnishes and adhesives
- Onsite personnel and management
