Ethical rubbish removal is essential to the protection of the environment and to the health of the population. It is a well-known fact that landfill sites across the UK fill up quickly to impact not just local communities, but the environment worldwide. Professional skip hire and rubbish clearance services, such as those provided by our waste removal company in Rainham, play an important role in making sure materials undergo effective management.
Many years ago, humans managed rubbish by digging a hole and burying their waste; a fine technique when populations were small and waste was biodegradable but today, we need different solutions to deal with the waste society produces on a fearfully large scale.
This page takes a closer look into the impact of waste removal services, such as skip hire and wait-and-load rubbish clearances. Our customers and clients in the Rainham area have a series of rubbish removal needs so, whether they need a skip for clearing domestic waste or a commercial service that includes site waste management plans, we’re always here to help.
Why are rubbish clearances so important to our local community?
The phrase “out of sight, out of mind” is all too relevant when it comes to waste. Although there is much more awareness today about recycling, it is often too easy to place rubbish in a bin without thinking about where it ends up. This waste ends up at landfill sites. Recent figures show that recycling rates in the UK have fallen over the last few years to just 43.7%.
Landfill sites have a harmful impact on local communities and can affect areas like Rainham with air and water pollution issues. Responsible waste removal is important for reducing landfill use. Our skip hire and rubbish clearance services play an instrumental role in protecting the planet and preserving it for the benefit of our future generations.
Keep in mind that you don’t need a rubbish removal service to make a difference.
Try to look at skip hire and waste removal as either a last resort or an option for large-scale rubbish clearance projects in Rainham. For everyday waste, separate materials into different categories – such as paper, glass and tin – and place them into the correct recycling bin.
Don’t forget you can also take recycled waste to approved collection facilities in the area.
How does poor waste management impact the global environment?
Without rubbish removal services or using a skip through a site waste management plan, poor recycling practices have a negative impact on local communities and the environment on a worldwide scale. Recent documentaries, including Blue Planet II, show how waste ends up in our oceans to affect wildlife, habitats and ecosystems across the entire planet.
Responsible waste removal and recycling helps to conserve the planet’s natural habitats and landscapes. Up to 90% of the materials derived from the skip hire and rubbish clearance services we provide to customers and clients in the Rainham area undergo full recycling.
Ensure responsible waste management by contacting our skip hire and waste removal company today for competitively-priced services that protect the environment.
