Recycling

Recycling

Recycling is a very current issue in the world. The Government expect at least 70% of all waste to be recycled. We are pleased to assist the Government with this and have fully trained members of staff to ensure that the Government’s expectations are met. Cheddar & Wells Skips are proud to say that we are recycling between 80% and 90% of all waste. This means that we are helping to keep the carbon footprint within Wells and the surrounding areas to a minimum.

We have all necessary carrier licences and have completed WAMITAB training to ensure they are all at a competent level when dealing with waste, so you can be confident that we will deal with your waste efficiently and appropriately.

 

 

Cheddar & Wells Skips follow the Waste Hierarchy, as set out by the Government:
 

  • REDUCE – This applies to the waste producer, who quite simply should try to reduce the amount of waste they generate.
      
  • RECYCLE – The most widely used and practised purpose, recycling is where waste can be re-used for a different purpose.
     
  • RECOVER – This is when waste is used for other processes, such as wastes to energy plants. DISPOSE – The term nobody likes; it’s not green, it’s not recycling, but disposing of waste when none of the above can be done.
