HQ BUILDING THE BUSINESS FAQ's
A. There are different ways of dealing with waste.
If you have a large enough volume of waste, then it’s better to dissect it down to its commodity parts such as glass, recyclable, non-recyclable, food, oil, and Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment recycling (WEEE). Doing so is better for a) the environment and b) your cost.
But you shouldn’t continue to have weekly collections. You might want to move to a fortnightly collection, or a monthly collection, or even a quarterly collection. The wagons on the road are what cost your business money.
The less frequently you’ve got people coming to your site and the less disturbance, admin, and hassle you’re taking on, the more money you’ll save on waste.
A. You always need to research the relevant legislation and take this into account when disposing of waste.
As an example, electrical waste has to be disposed of compliantly. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulations 2013 is the underpinning UK legislation. See this page for more information.
Another key point to bear in mind is that feminine hygiene is clinical waste and needs to be handled differently to regular waste. It is classified as ‘offensive’ under the Safe Management of Healthcare Waste Guidance (Department of Health, Dec 2006).
A. Your supplier’s wagons will contain weighing technology and they’ll specify the amount of waste that should be held within a particular container size.
So if, for example, your waste is wet because you’ve left the lid off your cardboard, and your weight level goes over the threshold, you’ll be penalised.
The drier and more compact your waste is, the more money you’ll save.
A. Not necessarily. A lot of the groundwork can be done over the phone or by E-mail.

A. There are no costs. This a free service to clubs.
