Transforming Catering Waste

Types Of
Construction Waste

At Waste King, we believe in minimising the environmental impact of construction projects by championing the recycling of construction waste. This practice not only reduces the volume of material sent to landfills but also circumvents the need for landfill taxes, fostering a more eco-friendly construction environment. Our services include access to a variety of recycling schemes tailored for construction site materials, along with partnerships with manufacturers who offer their own return and recycling programs.

We target a wide range of construction waste materials for recycling, ensuring that almost nothing goes to waste:

  • Wood Waste: Transform leftover and unusable wood into valuable products like landscaping pellets, garden mulch, chipboard, animal bedding, and even fuel.
  • Inert Waste: Repurpose bricks, concrete, soil, and stones into aggregate materials for use in new construction projects, such as concrete and asphalt.
  • Plasterboard: Recycle used plasterboard to manufacture new, high-quality plasterboard materials.
  • Metal Waste: Convert scrap metal into new metal products, significantly reducing the energy required compared to producing metals from raw materials.
  • Cardboard and Paper: These common site materials are easily reconstituted or shredded to create insulation materials and animal bedding.
  • Plastic: Selected packaging and bottles are recycled into new plastic items, contributing to a circular economy.
  • Glass: Crushed glass, or cullet, finds new life as part of aggregate materials, concrete, and insulation, further reducing environmental impact.

Waste King is dedicated to providing sustainable waste management solutions that contribute to a greener planet.

Construction Waste Collection

How To Dispose Of Construction Waste

Efficient management of construction waste, which encompasses a wide range of commercial waste, is crucial for builders. As a licensed waste carrier, Waste King is dedicated to the proper handling of all waste generated by your building endeavours, whether on a construction site for new homes or at a private residence. It is your obligation to ensure the safekeeping, removal, and disposal of construction waste.

Optimal building designs aim to minimise waste generation, promoting the reuse and recycling of materials as the most effective waste management strategy. Waste King is committed to disposing of all construction debris in an environmentally responsible manner, prioritising recycling to avoid landfill contributions.

Home improvement projects, from constructing a garden wall to interior renovations, can generate significant construction waste. The disposal of materials like bricks, rubble, cement, and plasterboard requires more effort than typical household waste.

Local councils often do not provide collection services for construction debris, nor do they accept it in regular waste bins. While some building waste may be accepted at Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs), transportation to these sites is your responsibility. Choosing Waste King for your construction waste collection and disposal needs offers a seamless, cost-effective, and convenient alternative, ensuring proper handling of your building waste.

Waste management in construction

Why waste management
is important for construction?

Effective waste management is essential in the construction sector. At Waste King, we recognise the significance of reducing construction waste to safeguard natural resources and mitigate ecological harm.

Key reasons why robust waste management practices are paramount in construction include:

  • Regulatory Compliance: Under the Waste (England and Wales) Regulations 2011, construction entities are mandated to prioritise waste minimisation through the waste management hierarchy, alongside the obligation to issue a waste transfer note for every waste dispatch from the site.
  • Cost Reduction: Efficient material reuse from past projects can significantly cut down on expenditure by eliminating disposal and landfill taxes. Notably, the landfill tax was adjusted by HM Revenue and Customs to £94.14 per tonne for standard waste and £3 per tonne for inert waste as of April 1, 2020.
  • Health and Safety: Proper waste storage practices reduce the risk of onsite accidents and hazards, promoting a safer work environment.
  • Environmental Stewardship: We hold a moral duty to minimise landfill waste, thereby easing the pressure on natural resources. Adopting reduction, reuse, and recycling strategies underscores our commitment to environmental preservation.
  • Reputation Enhancement: Demonstrating environmental responsibility elevates your company’s image within the community and can be a critical factor in securing government grants. A proactive approach to waste management reflects positively on your company’s values.
  • Culture of Responsibility: Encouraging responsible waste management practices among employees fosters a culture of environmental consciousness that extends beyond the workplace, influencing personal habits and future professional conduct.

Waste King is committed to leading by example, emphasising the importance of responsible waste management in the construction industry to ensure a sustainable future.

Construction Waste FAQ’s

How do you dispose of construction waste?2024-03-08T16:18:00+00:00

When dealing with construction waste that cannot be minimised, repurposed, or recycled, utilising skips and bins for disposal emerges as a viable alternative. It is essential to segregate non-hazardous, hazardous, and recyclable waste into different containers for proper disposal. Once your waste is securely stored, you can coordinate the removal of construction debris with certified waste carriers, like Waste King. We specialise in safely transporting waste to designated disposal facilities.

Adhering to legal guidelines, every shipment of waste from your site must be accompanied by a waste transfer note. This document is crucial and should detail the following:

  • The classification code of the waste.
  • The hazardous nature of the waste, if applicable.
  • The origin of the waste, specifying the type of premises or business.
  • Identification of the waste material(s).
  • The processes that generated the waste.
  • A detailed chemical and physical analysis of the waste, including its components.
  • Any specific challenges, requirements, or essential information pertaining to the waste management.

At Waste King, we ensure the provision of a waste transfer note at no extra charge. It is mandatory for both the construction entity and the waste management firm to retain a signed copy of this document for a minimum of two years, ensuring compliance and accountability in waste management practices.

How much waste does the construction industry produce?2024-03-08T16:21:20+00:00

The construction sector plays a significant role in the UK’s waste generation, accounting for over one-third of the country’s total annual waste. Astonishingly, the industry produces around 100 million tonnes of construction waste every year. On a brighter note, it’s heartening to learn that an estimated 93% of this waste is recovered and repurposed, showcasing the sector’s commitment to sustainable practices.

In the past decade, the construction of 330,000 new homes across the UK has underscored the industry’s substantial demand for materials, consuming 400 million tonnes of natural resources annually. This highlights the construction sector’s pivotal role and its duty to spearhead effective waste management initiatives, serving as a model for other industries to emulate.

Waste King stands at the forefront of these efforts, championing innovative waste management and recycling solutions to ensure a greener future.

What is a construction site waste management plan (SWMP)?2024-03-08T16:16:20+00:00

Developing a Site Waste Management Plan (SWMP) becomes a strategic step following a comprehensive waste site audit. Although it’s not mandated by law to have one, the utility of an SWMP for any construction project is undeniable.

Crafting a meticulous SWMP with Waste King can diminish on-site waste by as much as 15%, bolster operational efficiencies, and lead to significant cost savings over time. Our commitment is to collaborate closely with you to create a bespoke site waste management plan that meets your unique project needs. Key components of your SWMP will include:

  • Identify the contractor tasked with the plan’s implementation on-site.
  • Strategies for minimising waste during the procurement phase.
  • A comprehensive inventory of anticipated waste materials, including their European Waste Catalogue (EWC) codes.
  • Strategies for the reuse or recycling of waste materials throughout the project’s duration.
  • Information regarding the certified waste carrier, including the anticipated volume of waste for removal.
  • Projections of cost savings realised through the effective implementation of the SWMP.

At Waste King, we are dedicated to ensuring your construction project not only meets but exceeds environmental stewardship standards, through the strategic planning and reduction of waste.

What size skips are available for construction waste?2024-03-08T16:20:07+00:00

Waste King offers a diverse selection of skip sizes to accommodate the varied waste disposal needs of any construction or demolition project. It’s crucial to position these skips in locations that are both easily reachable and secure on your premises, complemented by clear signage to ensure safety. Additionally, providing and mandating the use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is essential to minimise hazards associated with skip handling.

Our commonly used skip sizes for construction sites are:

  • Small Builders’ Skip: Measures 6 cubic yards, with dimensions of 10 x 4 x 4 feet, ideal for smaller projects.
  • Large Builders’ Skip: Offers 8 cubic yards of space, sizing up at 12 x 6 x 4 feet, suitable for larger undertakings.
  • Large Maxi Skip: Our most spacious option at 12 cubic yards, this skip is 13 x 6 x 6 feet and is designed for the most extensive projects (please note, it cannot be used for soil and bricks).

These options ensure that Waste King can cater to all scales of construction waste management needs, providing efficient and reliable solutions.

Who is responsible for construction waste disposal?2024-03-08T16:22:40+00:00

Businesses involved in producing, storing, transporting, or disposing of construction waste bear the full responsibility for its management. If you’re outsourcing construction waste removal and disposal, it’s crucial to ensure the third-party service provider adheres to all legal requirements. Partnering with a reputable and certified waste disposal company, like Waste King, guarantees compliance with environmental and legal standards.

It falls upon the construction company to verify that its waste management partner holds the necessary licenses. Any mishandling, such as illegal dumping, could result in legal repercussions, including landfill taxes. Additionally, obtaining a permit is mandatory for using a skip on public property, like streets.

At Waste King, we are dedicated to minimising landfill waste. We assist businesses in implementing effective waste management strategies, aiming to recycle and reuse as much material as possible. Reach out to us for reliable, compliant, and eco-friendly construction waste removal services.

Why do I need to complete a construction waste audit?2024-03-08T16:14:52+00:00

A waste audit is instrumental in identifying the volume of waste your operation produces and strategising on reduction methods. Waste King offers comprehensive site audits conducted by seasoned experts in the industry to facilitate this process for you. Your construction waste audit will encompass the following steps:

  • Categorise the waste materials.
  • Document the volume of waste within each category.
  • Examine the variety and volume of waste produced at various project phases.
  • Summarise and interpret the findings.
