James Gregory, Director of Operations, Trent College

All businesses in England have a ‘Duty of Care’ to deal responsibility with any waste that it produces.

Business waste includes any waste that come from:

  • Any Commercial Activity
  • Construction work
  • Demolition work
  • Industry
  • Agriculture

Your ‘Duty of Care’ lasts from the moment you produce the waste until you give it to a licensed waste business to deal with. Even at the point of handover you still have a responsibility to check how that waste business deals with the disposal of your waste.

We have supported many clients with the procurement of their Waste Management Services.

Our approach is to start by undertaking a review of existing arrangements and benchmarking them to ensure you are getting the optimum service at the right price.

As part of our process we will: 

  • Review your existing practices for the provision of waste management services;
  • Benchmark your current arrangements;
  • Advise on improvements to reduce cost and streamline processes;
  • Assess your impact on the Environment and determine if any further accreditation standards, such as ISO 14001, may be beneficial to your company.

You will then have the assurance that your existing practices and arrangements have been comprehensively reviewed by waste management procurement specialists. You will also receive a Report detailing our findings and recommendations, highlighting areas for improvement and feedback on the robustness of your current arrangements.
