Factory Waste
Recycling & Removal

Manufacturing plays a crucial role in bolstering any economy by producing vital goods for diverse needs and generating employment opportunities. Nonetheless, a universal challenge faced by manufacturing facilities is the generation of factory waste. Given the mounting concerns regarding the substantial volumes of waste emanating from factories annually, it is imperative to adopt measures aimed at minimising, recycling, and repurposing this waste.

In the UK alone, the industrial sector is responsible for generating over 40 million tons of waste yearly, a significant portion of which originates from factories. The nature of this waste varies widely across different manufacturing plants, processes, and industries, yet a considerable amount is amenable to recycling or other forms of recovery.

For factory owners, it is a fundamental responsibility to ensure that the waste produced is managed efficiently—this encompasses proper storage, removal, and disposal practices. Explore comprehensive waste management solutions for factories and warehouses throughout the UK with Waste King, your trusted partner in sustainable waste management practices.

Effortless Recycling Solutions

Factory Waste
Collection Service

Effective waste management in factories and warehouses is crucial, and it significantly depends on the specific needs of your operation, including the size of your facility and the types of waste you generate. Implementing a robust waste management strategy is vital for the safe and secure storage of waste materials until they can be properly disposed of or recycled.

Waste King recommends the following best practices for storing various types of factory waste:

  • Oil Waste: Collect waste oil from manufacturing processes in large, secure drums or barrels equipped with tight-fitting lids to prevent leaks and spills.
  • Cardboard Waste: Utilise wheelie bins for cardboard waste storage, available in sizes ranging from 120 to 1100 liters. For larger volumes of cardboard waste, consider a front-end loader or a baler to compact and hold the waste efficiently, provided you have the necessary space.
  • Plastic Waste: Employ colour-coded wheelie bins to segregate recyclable plastic materials from other waste, facilitating recycling efforts and environmental sustainability.
  • Scrap Metal: For metal waste, skips are suitable for varying volumes, while a roll-on roll-off container is a more permanent solution for managing high quantities of scrap metal.
  • Hazardous Waste: It’s imperative to handle hazardous waste with extreme caution. Store and dispose of hazardous materials separately to avoid contamination. Adherence to the recommended disposal methods for each type of hazardous waste is essential, and recycling of hazardous materials should comply with the guidelines set by the 2010 Strategy for Hazardous Waste Management in England.

By adopting these practices, your business can ensure that waste is managed efficiently and sustainably, minimising environmental impact and adhering to regulatory requirements.

Factory Waste FAQ’s

How can our factory reduce its environmental impact through waste management?2024-03-12T15:42:16+00:00

Reducing your factory’s environmental impact starts with implementing sustainable waste management practices. This can be achieved by focusing on waste minimisation techniques such as process optimisation to reduce waste generation, segregating waste at source for effective recycling, and investing in technology that converts waste into energy. Additionally, partnering with a waste management provider that emphasises recycling and recovery can significantly lower the environmental footprint of your operations.

How do you handle hazardous waste produced by factories?2024-03-12T15:42:54+00:00

We also offer specialised containers and labelling for hazardous waste to ensure safety and compliance. Our team is trained in handling dangerous substances and operates in accordance with local and national regulations to mitigate risks to the environment and human health.

How does factory waste affect humans?2024-03-12T15:40:20+00:00

When individuals are exposed to hazardous waste within a manufacturing environment, they face a heightened risk of developing severe health conditions, including cancer, respiratory illnesses, and other diseases. It is imperative that such waste is meticulously stored in designated bags, bins, and containers specifically suited for the type of hazardous material in question. Additionally, the adherence to strict safety protocols, including the proper use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), is essential to further mitigate these risks. At Waste King, we emphasise the importance of rigorous safety standards to protect both the environment and human health.

How does factory waste affect the environment?2024-03-12T15:39:21+00:00

At Waste King, we understand the profound impact that improperly disposed hazardous factory waste, including toxic substances and chemicals, can have on our environment. When such waste is relegated to landfills, it poses a significant risk of leaching into and contaminating nearby soil and water sources. This not only endangers the health of wildlife and humans who rely on these resources but also compromises soil fertility and the safety of crops.

To safeguard our environment and ensure a healthier planet for future generations, it is crucial for your factory to implement proper hazardous waste management practices.
