Waste Express: the Eco-friendly Solution
to Your Waste Removal Needs

Utilize these 5 methods of eco-friendly waste removal

Did you know that every year 111 million tonnes of waste in the UK ends up on one of the country's 4,000 landfill sites? This represents 57% of all waste produced. Not only does waste removal to landfills contribute to climatic changes, but the decomposing matter can leach into the soil and pollute groundwater. Incineration of rubbish causes similar damage to the environment because of the release of CO2, one of the greenhouse gases.

Eco-friendly waste removal includes separating your waste
Many countries now adopt waste separation as one of ways to reduce
common landfills and increase waste recycling, making it more eco-friendly.

Methods of Eco-friendly Waste Removal

If you're concerned about the environmental impact of the way you dispose of waste, what methods of waste removal are more eco-friendly?

Donate Unwanted Possessions

After a spring-clean, don't just bin the things you no longer need if they're still in good condition. Charity shops and jumble sales would welcome any donations, and the added benefit is that you'd be helping a good cause. Many local councils are also prepared to pick up bulkier household items like old furniture or electrical goods to be given to the less privileged.

Reuse Objects

Reusing household waste is far superior to recycling. There's a wealth of possibilities of how you can reuse rubbish from using old containers to do craft projects with children or to store foodstuffs or stationery. Plant pots can be made from the most unlikely waste from old wheelbarrows to lidless teapots. They won't cost you a penny and will make eye-catching additions to your garden.

Recycling

Most local authorities offer kerbside collections of rubbish separated into different materials such as paper, glass, aluminium, etc. Unfortunately, some still ends up on landfills.

If you have recently had a clear-out or have missed your area's collection day, Waste Express is a national waste removal company which operates 7 days a week across the whole of the UK. They have a response time of 2-24 hours and can handle most types of waste, irrespective of size, ranging from domestic to commercial waste including rubbish from construction work or shop-fitting and electrical waste. Unlike the hire of a skip, labour costs are included in their fee so it can be a much more cost-effective solution. You also have an iron-clad guarantee they're environmentally friendly since 90% of waste is diverted from landfill sites.

Making Compost

Garden cuttings and organic foodstuffs can be used to make compost. The resulting mulch is a non-toxic, natural fertiliser for your garden and plant pots. If you don't need it all, you can give it away to family, friends or neighbours or even donate it to a local park.

The Benefits of Anaerobic Digestion Plants

The number of anaerobic digestion plants in the UK has increased by over 500% since 2013, and these plants are said to be the future of eco-friendly waste disposal. Unlike landfills, the gases resulting from decomposition are captured to make biogas, an alternative energy source whilst the remaining solid residue can be made into organic fertilisers.

Most people nowadays would think twice before simply putting rubbish in their dustbins. Waste Express are on hand to help with your eco-friendly waste removal goals – whether you are an individual, a family or a business owner.
