These include small independents to larger companies, factories, construction companies and multinational organisations.

Waste disposal regulations
Key environmental legislation has brought additional responsibilities to those producing waste and companies like ours that specialise in waste disposal. The Waste (England and Wales) Regulations 2011, which included consultation with the Environment Agency, encourages sustainable waste management. It places a duty on organisations that produce or handle waste to try to prevent it and apply the waste hierarchy when transferring it.
The Waste Hierarchy consists of five stages, with waste prevention as the best outcome and waste disposal as the least desirable outcome. A step in the right direction would be the use of fewer materials when manufacturing and the preparation to reuse and recycle materials wherever possible. Only after all these options have been considered should waste disposal to landfill, or incineration without energy recovery, be fulfilled.
