Huge amounts of waste are generated every day. Recycling helps us convert this waste into reusable objects and prevents us throwing away potentially useful materials. Recycling also reduces the consumption of raw materials (e.g. glass, paper, metal and plastic), energy usage and air pollution and water pollution.
Businesses of every size and within every sector need to decide how best to dispose of and, preferably, recycle the waste they produce. They need to find a service that uses the right tools – particularly when hazardous material are involved – so that they do not harm our environment in any way.
Water is valuable. It’s required for drinking, industry, irrigation, river flow maintenance and recreation so it’s essential water is returned to the environment free of contaminants after use so it’s ready to use again.
However, if these businesses are going to provide the services we need in order to achieve a sustainable environment, they need to be able to continue to trade and to grow. Safe trading and growth requires high quality, specialist legal support.
