Keeping on top of your waste disposal is a pretty important factor when running your business. Aside from just keeping your premises clean of waste, irresponsibly disposing of your waste can land you in trouble with the law and doesn’t look particularly good for your brand image.
However, knowing how to best deal with your waste can be a confusing process as there’s a variety of options you can choose from to best fit your commercial waste disposal needs. With this in mind, here is a handy guide to the types of waste disposal containers you may need for your business.
Most businesses will be needing some kind of bins to effectively dispose of their waste. However, there are a variety of bins to pick from to best fit your needs. For smaller operations that make a manageable amount of waste, the 240 and 360-litre wheelie bins are great choices, fitting between 4-7 bin bags depending on which size you go for and comfortably fitting on smaller premises.
However, if you’re creating larger volumes of waste, there are other options, from larger 1100 litre wheeled bins with lockable lids to 10 cubic yard FEL (Front End Loader) bins for large-scale industrial waste management.
Hazardous waste disposal
If you’re working with materials that have the potential to cause harm to the environment or human life, it’s important to have the correct storage in place to both keep you safe and keep you on the right side of the law. For hazardous chemicals, such as oil and paint, clip-top waste drums are a perfect solution, safely securing your waste in an efficient way.
Fluorescent lighting which contains heavy metals such as mercury needs to be stored and disposed of in a safe manner. With this in mind, some waste disposal companies can offer plastic tubing to store bulbs until collection.
Whether you’re looking to clear out the office or make some interior design changes to your business, a skip might be a great waste disposal choice. Ranging in size from small personal skips for quick jobs to 40 cubic yard containers for large-scale disposal operations, skip hire is an affordable and easy way to be rid of bulk waste.
