Business and Commercial Waste



Overview
 

You must:

  Keep waste to a minimum by doing everything you reasonably can to prevent, reuse, recycle or recover waste (in that order).

Sort and store waste safely and securely.

  Complete a waste transfer note for each load of waste that leaves your premises.

  Check if your waste carrier is registered to dispose of waste.

  Not allow the waste carrier to dispose of your waste illegally (and report them to crimestoppers if they do).

You have extra responsibilities if you're dealing with hazardous waste.

Business waste includes any waste that comes from:

  • any commercial activity – including any you run from your home
  • construction
  • demolition
  • industry
  • agriculture

How long your duty of care lasts

Your duty of care lasts from the moment you produce the waste until you give it to a licensed waste business to deal with.

You’re still responsible to check how that business deals with your waste if you suspect it’s not following the duty of care.

You should report if another business mishandles your waste.

Duty of Care
 

You must:

  • classify your waste and know if it’s hazardous or non-hazardous so you can deal with it correctly
  • register your premises if you produce or store hazardous waste
  • usually get a permit to store, treat, transport or dispose of your waste yourself
  • store your waste safely and securely
  • follow the rules for moving waste off your business premises
  • check that any business you use to deal with your waste is licensed, and keep proof of this – eg take a copy of their licence

You have extra responsibilities if you’re dealing with hazardous waste.

Consider alternatives

You must consider all other options before you dispose of waste.

Consider these 5 steps in order. They’re known as the ‘waste hierarchy’.

  1. Prevent – eg use fewer and less hazardous materials, and use things for longer.

  2. Reuse.

  3. Recycle.

  4. Recover – eg anaerobic digestion or incineration for energy recovery.

  5. Dispose – eg landfill and incineration without energy recovery.

Classifying Different Types of Waste
 

You must describe any waste your business produces before you send it for recycling and disposal.

Classifying your waste will help you:

  • decide how to handle it
  • complete the paperwork you must give waste contractors so they can manage your waste - this is part of your ‘duty of care’
You may need to meet additional requirements if you want to dispose of hazardous waste.

What to include in your description


Your description must include:
  • the waste classification code, also referred to as LoW (List of Waste) or EWC (European Waste Catalogue) code - you can find codes in the technical guidance on waste
  • whether it’s hazardous
  • the type of premises or business where the waste was produced
  • the name of the substance or substances
  • the process that produced the waste
  • a chemical and physical analysis
  • any special problems, requirements or knowledge related to the waste
You must consider all the waste your business produces.

Check the technical guidance on waste - it also includes information about waste classification, hazardous waste and waste sampling.

You must not use landfill waste acceptance criteria (WAC) results for waste classification purposes.

How to find out if your waste is hazardous

In most cases you can check the waste code or codes associated with your type of waste - it’ll have an asterisk if it’s hazardous.

Some wastes may have both hazardous and non-hazardous entries, eg where one refers to the containing hazardous substances.

In these cases, you must determine the waste’s composition and assess if it has hazardous properties or components before you can classify it - check the manufacturers’ product safety data sheets for this information.

Many products include orange and black danger symbols or red and white hazard pictograms to indicate they’re hazardous - check the technical guidance on waste for more information.

Some products (eg cosmetics and medicines) aren’t normally labeled with hazard symbols - check the product’s safety data sheet.

Mixing waste

It’s illegal to mix a hazardous waste with either non-hazardous or another hazardous waste.

Check how to mix and store hazardous waste in the technical guidance on waste.

You will usually need more than one code if you store more than one type of non-hazardous waste in your container.

If you need more help

You can seek advice from a specialist waste contractor if you’re not sure whether it’s hazardous or not.

For more information, contact the Environment Agency.

Licenses and Registration
 

Usually you need a permit to store, treat or dispose of waste.

You can check if you need to get an environmental permit or registered exemption in England.

Register as a hazardous waste producer

You must register your business premises in England if you produce or store hazardous waste.

You don’t need to register if you produce less than 500kg of waste in any 12 months

Sorting and Storage
 

You must sort and keep separate:

  • hazardous waste and non-hazardous waste
  • different types of non-hazardous waste
  • different types of hazardous waste
  • different types of waste oil

You need to get an environmental permit to mix waste - read the guidance on mixing waste.

Store your waste

You must store waste safely and securely. To do this:

  • store waste in a secure place
  • use suitable containers that will stop waste escaping
  • label containers clearly with the type of waste they contain
  • use covers to stop waste blowing away
  • use waterproof covers if rain could cause contaminated run-off or prevent the waste from being reused
  • keep liquid hazardous waste in a dedicated area, with a bund or barrier to to stop liquid leaking, eg into a drain

You have extra responsibilities if you’re storing hazardous waste – you must:

  • display written instructions for storing and disposing of it
  • keep records about it and where it’s located
  • carry out a risk assessment, eg to identify what the risks are and how to control them
  • regularly check for leaks, deteriorating containers or other potential risks

You may need an environmental permit to store your own or other people’s waste. The permit will confirm any extra rules for storing waste on your site.

There are extra responsibilities for certain types of waste – read the technical guidance on waste for more advice about separating and mixing hazardous waste during production, storage, transport, recovery and disposal.

Moving Waste
 

There are rules on how to move waste off your business premises.

You must:

  • use a licensed waste business to collect, recycle, recover or dispose of your waste in England
  • get a licence to transport your own waste in England
  • keep to the restrictions if you move waste between countries

You have extra responsibilities depending on whether you’re moving:

  • hazardous waste
  • non-hazardous waste

Waste collectors must set up separate collections of waste for:

  • paper and cardboard
  • plastic
  • metal
  • glass

Move waste between countries

You can usually only import or export waste to recover it. You won’t usually be able to import or export waste for disposal, eg landfill.

Read the guide on waste imports and exports.

Disposal
 

You have different responsibilities depending on whether you’re disposing of:

  • hazardous waste
  • non-hazardous waste

You have extra responsibilities when you’re dealing with electrical waste if you’re a distributor.

Gypsum and plasterboard

You must keep gypsum and plasterboard separate from other wastes when you send it for disposal. It must not go to landfill mixed with biodegradable waste.

You can only send gypsum and plasterboard to a landfill site with a permit to accept it.

You can contact the environment organisation in your region if you have questions about disposal or other types of waste.

Access North elevates technical team with new appointment

Monday 14 August 2017

Rope access specialist Access North Structures has appointed Richard Knight as its new Technical Project Manager, to oversee its growing portfolio of assignments across the UK. Joining the Huddersfield-based team of height professionals with 13 years’ industry experience, Richard brings a wealth of technical and work at height expertise to the newly created role. Having been self-employed as an industrial rope access subcontractor for more than ten years, he will be undertaking more management and client-facing responsibilities in his new position. Qualified at the highest grade for the industry with IRATA Level 3 certification, Richard’s duties will include building client relationships and providing job quotations, alongside project and team management. Prior to scaling tall buildings and leading teams of technicians over the past decade, Richard initially qualified as a mechanic. Transitioning into work at height when he was employed as a tree surgeon in 2004, he moved into industrial rope access and building maintenance two years later. His previous subcontractor role didn’t just see him overseeing health and safety at sites all over the world – he was also tasked with training other technicians in onsite tower crane rescue and telecomms access. With an expanding portfolio of rope access projects across many different sectors, Access North Structures required someone with adaptability and considerable technical experience to take on this challenging management position. And according to Managing Director Berenice Northcott, this is just what Richard brings to the role. She comments: “With such a varied client base, we needed someone to join the team who is versatile, personable and skilled, and not put off by the travelling that this position entails. Richard has worked on a huge array of projects worldwide – from maintaining indoor rollercoasters in Dubai, to steel erecting on the Shard in London – so his technical know-how, vast on-site experience and charisma makes him an excellent fit. “As we set our sights on expanding into more challenging areas, Richard’s past expertise in working on demanding projects – such as oil rigs and petrochemical plants – will be invaluable for our wider project planning and management.” Elaborating on the responsibilities and objectives of his new role, Richard comments: “With my background in rope access and site safety, taking on this more office-based technical management role is a whole new challenge for me. I’m looking forward to learning from the other side of the fence, and helping to progress the business further. “The creativity and forward-thinking nature of Access North is what attracted me to the position, as they’re not afraid to do things differently. I’m excited to be able to play a part in bringing the company even more success, by putting my own expertise into practice.” Access North Structures is based in Armitage Bridge, Huddersfield and provides specialist rope access, ETFE, tensile fabrics and fall protection services to sites across the UK.

Power specialist Smith Brothers sets its sights on solar

Tuesday 25 July 2017

Elland-based high voltage power specialist Smith Brothers has added the energisation of two prominent solar farms to its fast-growing success story. Having been assigned the design and build contract for Wreay Farm in Carlisle by renewables developer Anesco, the team of electrical engineering experts was also enlisted as the independent connections provider by solar giant Ethical Power for Netley Farm, near Southampton. With work on the Wreay Farm energisation beginning in December last year, the engineers were tasked with laying cabling to connect the site to the DNO, as well as building two 33kV substations – one brick structure for Electricity North West Ltd, and one Glass Reinforced Plastic customer enclosure. But what started as a straightforward connection project soon became more complex, as the team had to contend with landowner requests which led to new cabling routes. The original 1.8km dig for six cables to be laid grew to 2.6km, incurring a number of road closures, council negotiations and licensing difficulties. Yet despite these external challenges, the engineers still completed the work on time. “Accommodating landowner requests resulted in the overall project growing by 25%,” comments Dan Wagner, Smith Brothers’ senior project manager for the Wreay Farm assignment. “But even though the job didn’t quite go to plan, the team’s dedication and perseverance meant we still managed to hit the overall programme energisation deadline.” By far the smoother project for the high voltage specialists, the Netley Farm energisation for Ethical Power similarly involved the build of a 33kV distribution network operator substation – this time to be adopted by SSE. As well as the substation building and fit-out at the former landfill site, the engineers were assigned to install a 3-panel Siemens NX Plus switchboard and battery unit, and lay the required 200m of cabling. “Seeing through projects from start to finish, like these ones at the Netley and Wreay farms, is what we specialise in,” says Smith Brothers’ project manager Ryan Smith. “By providing the design, build and commission work in one turnkey package, we completed the job far more efficiently and effectively than if a different team had been brought in at each specific stage.” Now that both sites are fully operational, the solar farms are expected to generate 5 megawatts of power each. Ryan continues: “It’s great to see that solar and other renewables are becoming a real mainstay in our portfolio, at the same time as our operations within other areas such as STOR and battery services are also expanding. This strengthening of our presence across sectors just goes to show the versatility and expertise of our team.” The electrical engineering firm works on an array of high voltage electrical assignments up to 132kV for the commercial, industrial and renewables sectors nationwide, and was recently announced as the design and build partner for the prestigious Hallburn Wind Farm.

Interpretative signage project complete on 26 hectare heritage estate

Friday 07 July 2017

Huddersfield-based Leach Inspire has completed a 3 month project to overhaul the experiential signage around Culzean Castle in Scotland. Brand design specialists StudioLR partnered with the heritage display experts, to deliver the 147-sign installation on time and to budget. Drawing on their collaborative experiences from ‘The Plock’ project in Kyle of Lochalsh, the duo worked to tight schedules for this unique brief. But this was not before an extensive research phase which saw the team walk 17km around the coastal site of Culzean Castle to meticulously plan the job. Overlooking the Firth of Clyde, the Castle – former home to the Marquess of Ailsa – is situated on a prestigious and opulent estate. It was therefore crucial that the signage would enhance the visitor experience from the minute of arrival. But the interpretative element of the graphical displays hasn’t been the only consideration. The beach location – whilst picturesque – means the external signs will be subject to extreme weather conditions during their lifespan. The research therefore presented a number of key manufacturing considerations when it came to the production of the signs themselves. Heavy duty materials were carefully chosen, for instance, 40 of Leach’s renowned Vault signage systems were crafted from hard-wearing external-grade oak that was left outside for three weeks prior to any carpentry, to prevent warping. 200 x 100mm planks were then cut down from 4m long timber and bolted together to complete the oak signage. All joinery, down to the final lacquering, was carried out by Leach’s own team for maximum quality control. Three 6m tall flagpoles were also manufactured and installed, plus 49 powder-coated, marine-grade stainless steel directional signs with two-colour print faces. 55 waymarkers with etched and infilled discs, constructed from 90mm diameter stainless steel, completed the signage suite. Elaborating on the assignment, Leach Inspire’s project manager Andy Cope said: “A signage project elsewhere in Scotland at The Plock was evidence of the quality of work that StudioLR and Leach could produce. But that was a 27-sign project, not 147 like Culzean Castle! “We transported a staggering 8 tonnes of signage to this coastal beauty spot – there aren’t many projects of this size. But careful coordination of the job from start to finish meant that the actual installation was completed in only three weeks – two days ahead of schedule!” Much of the project’s success was down to collaboration, communication and value engineering, believes Andy. “We worked closely together from start to finish, ensuring we left no stone unturned. We all genuinely enthused about the job too – I think we’d finalised the production schedule and product specs before the end of our first train journey home from Culzean! “But, as is the case with every single job we tackle, we remained committed to innovation. We used new print technology, for instance, which meant we could manufacture signs that are even more durable than normal. They’re virtually vandal proof and can last 10 years with ease. This won’t just prolong the quality of the visitor experience – it will protect National Trust for Scotland’s investment too.” Andy Gray, managing director of StudioLR concluded: “The end result looks fantastic, and the professionalism, attention to detail and quality product has already been complemented on.” Culzean Castle, Robert Adam's 18th-century masterpiece - a real 'castle in the air' - is perched on a cliff high above the crashing waves of the Firth of Clyde. The castle has a spectacular Oval Staircase, impressive Armoury and the Circular Saloon, with its panoramic views over the Clyde. Outside, visitors can explore a deer park, swan pond, miles of woodland walks and extensive coastline.

Towngate secures a quartet of industrial lets in Leeds

Tuesday 20 June 2017

Industrial and commercial property specialist Towngate PLC has secured four new leases across three of its Leeds trading estates. With the city’s accessibility making it a popular choice, Towngate has recently seen an upturn in tenancy interest in the region. Starting their occupancies at the company’s Copley Hill Trading Estate are Packaging Services Europe and Nicholls and Clarke. The spacious, newly refurbished Unit A has been occupied by reusable transit pallet and crate provider Packaging Services Europe. They have taken the 26,115 sq ft warehouse and industrial unit on a 5-year lease. Also joining the packaging experts at Copley Hill as the new occupants of neighbouring Unit E5, is the Nicholls & Clarke Group. The building product manufacturer and distributor has taken on the tenancy of the 4,985 sq ft space for 10 years. Elsewhere, distribution and courier service provider Farsley Transport is commencing its 3-year occupation of Unit 4C at the Olympia Trading Estate, located just off Gelderd Road. Adjacent to this 8,055 sq ft warehouse space, Units 4A and B are currently in the final stages of refurbishment and will be available to let individually or as a single 10,814 sq ft unit. Also setting its sights on the city, with a view to growing its northern operations, is electrical specialist TLA Distribution. The firm has taken on Unit C Turnkey Park – a 3,035 sq ft space comprising a warehouse and trade counter. With a loading yard and parking, the estate is ideally located on Royds Lane – just off Gelderd Road and the A58 – and has easy access to the motorway network. Commenting on the flurry of lettings, Towngate’s property manager Tom Lamb said: “These recent signings are another indicator that businesses can see the potential that the North – and particularly Leeds in this instance – has to offer. “The prime positioning of Towngate’s sites – combined with generous loading and parking areas, modernised facilities and optimum security – means we can supply highly functional spaces that fulfil demand.” Towngate PLC is a property specialist and landlord based in Brighouse, and was advised on these latest four deals by Paul Mack, Jonathan Jacob and Dan Walker of Gent Visick, and Jake Pygall of GVA.

Leach Studio help conquer new Vikings exhibition at the Yorkshire Museum

Tuesday 20 June 2017

Huddersfield-based exhibition designers Leach Studio has helped to bring the legendary Viking story to life at the Yorkshire Museum. A touring exhibition – which features some of the most exciting Anglo-Saxon and Viking discoveries ever made in Britain– is now on display at this prestigious museum, thanks to a major partnership with the British Museum and York Museums Trust. Star objects from both world-renowned collections, plus ground-breaking new archaeological research have come together in this new interpretative revelation. Leach’s brief was to help change the way that people perceive the notorious Vikings – an iconic group of seafarers commonly thought of as pillaging thieves. The exhibit therefore shows a more untold side of their tale, illustrating their traits as pioneering explorers and talented craftsmen, with rich religious beliefs and an incredibly discerning fashion sense! After an extensive 6 month project, Leach has created a number of beautiful graphic displays with high-resolution photographs that allow visitors to study the precious discoveries in more detail. Fun interactive features have also been incorporated to contextualise the artefacts shown throughout – there is even the opportunity to experience what it might have been like to row a Viking long boat, with a seascape backdrop plus audio of crashing waves and loud Viking voices. Commenting on the new exhibit, Natalie Buy, Curator of Archaeology at the Yorkshire Museum, said: “We wanted to provide a fresh perspective on how the Vikings shaped every aspect of British life, and, for many people, this will mean we’re challenging perceptions of what it meant to be a Viking. “But this is exactly what these exhibits are designed to do – immerse, enlighten and inspire. We’ve already received some fantastic feedback which is a true testament to the work of Leach in helping us to bring this story to life.” The exhibition will be on display at the Yorkshire Museum in York until 5 November 2017. It will then tour to the University of Nottingham Museum, as well as The Atkinson in Southport, Aberdeen Art Gallery and Norwich Castle Museum. For more information go to: www.yorkshiremuseum.org.uk

Senior appointment prompts formation of innovation team at graphics display specialist Leach

Wednesday 07 June 2017

Graphics display specialist Leach now has its own innovation department, following the appointment of a senior expert in industrial design. Mike Willshaw joins as head of innovation, after an extensive 20-year career designing consumer goods, packaging, FMCG, medical and promotional materials. Bringing a wealth of experience in manufacturing technologies, 3D printing and design consultancy, he now takes the lead of a six-strong innovation team at the Huddersfield based firm. With an annual budget of £250,000, this department will constantly research, develop and engineer new ideas and products for the graphics display marketplace. And it seems that the team already has plenty to talk about, following the unveiling of Leach’s new Product Wall last month. Available in any size up to 15m x 3m, Product Wall is a striking merchandise display system with integrated illuminated graphics. Commenting on Mike’s appointment, managing director Richard Leach said: “We may have celebrated our 125th anniversary last year, but our company is renowned for innovation. We’ve continued to come up with new and unexpected graphic displays that get the industry talking, but Mike’s talents take our design capabilities to even greater levels.” Mike added: “I love being able to think creatively and invent solutions that offer stronger commercial benefits for our clients’ design problems. Brands are constantly pushing boundaries and demanding more, whether their brief is to increase footfall to a retail store or inspire visitors at a heritage site. The landscape is constantly changing, but thanks to close continued dialogue with our customers, I think we’re one step ahead.” Mike’s appointment coincides with the arrival of business development manager Dale Broadhead, who joins Leach following a 20-year sales career. No stranger to six and seven figure contract wins, Dale’s experience will stand the company in good stead to achieve its projected 15% growth this year. Richard elaborated: “Dale’s CV spans sales and marketing expertise from the worlds of retail, branding and signage. He is a strong communicator who passionately collaborates with prospective clients to pose solutions they didn’t think were possible. This approach reflects everything that Leach has become renowned for, so he’s sure to prove a significant asset to the team.” Having appointed 15 new employees in the past 12 months alone, Leach has plans to recruit a further 6 colleagues before the end of 2017. All vacancies currently being advertised can be found here - https://weareleach.com/join-our-team/

The benefits of being a member of Kirklees Business Hub

Friday 26 May 2017

Earlier this year, we returned from the Objective Management Group (OMG) International Conference in Boston, having won two awards, best new partner or "rookie" of the year award and an outstanding performance award. We wrote an article about our achievement on Kirklees Business Hub and included information about how we support businesses with improving their sales. The news article was subsequently shared by the team at Kirklees Business Hub on LinkedIn and Twitter. As a result of the article being shared, we received two new enquiries. One of the new enquiries is a business based in Kirklees and the other prospect is based in South Wales. Our business is already experiencing the benefits of the hub and we would encourage people to share their news. More importantly, attend the excellent events that are organised. The one I attended on Wednesday at the 3M Innovation Centre was excellent. It is a great opportunity to learn and make contacts with like minded local businesses.

Cosmetic Cluster UK (CCUK)

Thursday 25 May 2017

The University of Bradford, Centre for Skin Sciences is hosting the inaugural meeting for a brand new Cosmetics Cluster for the UK’s Personal Care Industry - CCUK. Formed by YCF Limited, the acclaimed non-profit membership organisation for the process industries, this cluster will serve the people, communities, university academics and business development leaders in the industry. Dr Gillian Westgate, Chair of CCUK said, “building upon our previous work in this area, as well as the desire to offer something sector specific to this industry, we feel the time is right now to embark upon such a project”. Clustering as a concept in our industry, has been very successfully introduced in France with Cosmetics ValleyTM. This is a network of networks, in which sponsors and beneficiaries work together with innovation, competitiveness and job creation as its major outputs. Cosmetic Valley receives government backing and the ‘Valley’ is a magnet for industry and academia. See http://www.cosmetic-valley.com. We do not have ambitions to replicate this vast organisation, however, to adopt some of the concepts of a member based network with ready access to local information, people, training, funding and potential development partners. The vision is that CCUK will reach out to the increasing number of organisations in the Yorkshire and Humber region and nationally, whose interests lie in the various aspects of personal care or cosmetic products research, development and manufacture, including those that offer health care routes to anti-ageing and those involved in personal care products testing. The Cluster concept will also facilitate networking into other organisations such as trade bodies, societies, University specialist centres to evolve a ‘network of networks’ as well as working directly with companies and their people. There are over 70 delegates signed up to attend the launch meeting, which will take place on the 8th June at the University of Bradford. Sean McDonagh, from Siemens UK, who is sponsoring the event, said “Siemens have been a long term supporter of YCF & its sector cluster concept. The networking and information share between members is a real tangible benefit to the membership, and the new Cosmetics Cluster is an exciting development. Siemens are at the forefront of digitisation in manufacturing, offering technologies and services to help the cosmetic and personal care sectors sustain and grow their own market share. We look forward to engaging with this new cluster and opening dialogue with new members”. At the event delegates will be able to help form and shape CCUK strategic priorities and inform the group of their needs, wants and challenges to enable the cluster to provide tangible benefits and growth opportunities to personal care and cosmetic companies in the UK. Lisa Buck, Operations Manager said “It really is an exciting time to be a part of such a group, YCF have vast experience in organising sector specific groups, come along and see for yourself what a difference such a group can make, to not only the industry we work in, but to individual companies too. We have several industry experts for you to talk to and we are ready to hear your thoughts on what you would like the group to do, for you”.

A new lease of life for iconic Copperworks site

Friday 28 April 2017

Commercial lettings specialist and landlord Towngate PLC has begun a refurbishment of a historical industrial property in Stourton, Leeds, formerly occupied by the Yorkshire Copper Works. Home to the world-renowned metals manufacturer until 1980, the site was finally closed in 2016. But Towngate is now carrying out extensive renovation works to breathe new life into the 300,000sqft space on Haigh Park Road. The demolition of an entire bay is now complete, which has paved the way for increased loading capacity to the building and yard area. In addition to the existing barrier entry, gatehouse and multiple cranes in the expansive external space, ground-level loading doors will soon be installed to the rear of the property to further boost circulation efficiency. All buildings are also being reroofed, with work expected to be finished by the end of summer. Further renovations will include a full re-clad of the external elevations, and a general overhaul of the internal space to create an open-plan working environment with a clear working height of over 9 metres. Once the refurbishment has been completed, the expansive site will be available to let as a whole to one single occupier or in part to multiple tenants, subject to market requirements. The self-contained space will include industrial warehouse accommodation, high-quality ancillary office buildings and a modern canteen, along with 8.65 acres of expansion land and a 250-space car park. As momentum builds, a rebranding project is also taking place behind the scenes to revitalise the site’s image and celebrate its illustrious industrial history. Commenting on what will be relaunched as “The Copperworks”, Towngate’s property manager Tom Lamb said: “We are delighted to be able to bring this significant property to the market. We’re planning a launch of the site in the autumn when all interested parties will be given the chance to visit and tour what we believe will be a unique industrial letting opportunity." Renovation of The Copperworks is expected to conclude in Q3 of 2017.
