Five Reasons To Outsource Waste Management Services At Your Business

Whether you run a construction site, large office building or fast-paced hospitality business, it’s inevitable that you’re going to produce a lot of waste. Running any type of business is a hectic task, so why not take some of the pressure off and outsource certain services to specialised companies?

Waste management is one of the most beneficial specialist services to outsource. Below, we detail five important reasons to use a reputable waste disposal company to support your business.

Adaptable and scalable

As a business grows, there are many different areas which need to expand along with it- waste management is one of these areas. A professional waste disposal company can alter which services they provide to you in order to suit your changing needs. Whether you need to scale up or down, waste management experts are well-equipped to take these changes in their stride.

Reliable hazardous waste management

If you run a business that handles hazardous waste, such as asbestos, batteries or solvents, then relying on a specialist company to collect and dispose of this waste is essential. Hazardous materials must be disposed of safely and efficiently in order to comply with regulations. Furthermore, as a company who produces hazardous waste, you’ll need to complete certain pre-registration documentation- a waste specialist can help to ensure you do this properly.


Most waste management companies endeavour to recycle up to 95% of the waste they collect- their specialist recycling plants are able to efficiently sort waste into the relevant categories to be remade into new products. By using an environmentally-conscious waste disposal company, your own business’ reputation will be elevated whilst reducing your environmental liability at the same time. Essentially, you’re awarded an eco-friendly status without having to do any of the work.


When you outsource your waste disposal services, you’ll cut your running costs. Firstly, you eliminate the need for hiring extra staff in-house, which comes with additional payouts like employee benefits and pensions. Secondly, you’ll have access to scale economies- specialist waste companies manage a wide portfolio of wastes for various industries meaning that you can tap into their cheaper deals.


Finally, when you use a professional waste disposal company, they’ll ensure you’ve got all the correct sized waste receptacles for your requirements; you’ll be paying by weight, rather than having to pay for the collection of large bins which you never fill.

Specialist knowledge

As with any specialist company, when you outsource from a waste company you hugely benefit from their expertise in the industry. If you’re not sure what to do with certain types of waste, rather than playing a dangerous guessing game, all you need to do is contact your chosen company and they’ll guide you in the right direction.

When you hire a waste management company, you can also guarantee that you’re complying to waste standards at all times as they’ll keep up with changing regulations in the industry. Keep your eyes peeled for recognised accreditations- if a company is a member of various relevant governing bodies (e.g. UKAS or SafeContractor), this is a sure sign that they’re a reliable waste disposal business.
