Recycling rates in Reading are dropping. With an annual rate of just 33%, it falls below the national average of 44%. The council has proposed several changes that can help increase this recycling rate. But businesses must take the initiative to adopt the reduce, reuse, recycle policies to achieve improvements in the recycling rates.
As the majority of waste is generated by commercial sectors, it is for individual companies to tackle their waste problems. For example, the University of Reading has a current recycling rate of 50%. However, they have developed a Waste Strategy that will help them improve their recycling rates by an additional 10%. Within 5 years of implementing the strategy, the university will have reached their target of 60% which is extremely impressive.
Their strategy includes reducing their total waste production, reusing where practical, recycling as much as possible, reviewing opportunities for effective waste management and annual reporting of their achievements towards waste management and environmental sustainability.
Other businesses and organisations can also achieve similar goals if they adopt effective recycling and waste management strategies.
At Utopia Waste, we work in partnership with businesses in Reading to support them with their waste management requirements. Our dedicated team can help our corporate customers with legal compliance, landfill diversion, recycling, sustainability and cost management.
We pride ourselves on being one of the top waste management companies for businesses throughout Reading and the UK.
General Waste Collections in Reading
We aim to recycle as much of your business waste as possible. But it is quite true that not every material that is disposed of is going to be recyclable.
So to tackle this problem, we provide a full range of general waste containers in which all of your non-recyclable and non-hazardous waste can be collected.
To determine your waste management requirements, we can conduct a comprehensive survey of your site. We can then recommend the number, type and size of general waste containers you will need.
Our wheelie bins range from 240 litres to 1100 litres and they are suitable for most small to medium businesses. However, if your waste management needs are greater, we will be happy to supply you with front end loaders, rear end loaders, skips and roll-on roll-off containers.
Hazardous Waste Disposal
Hazardous waste requires special handling. You need the services of a licensed waste management company to deal with hazardous waste produced as a result of your business activities.
Wastes classed as hazardous can include anything from oils, solvents, paints, chemicals and batteries. At Utopia Waste, we can provide you with appropriate containers for the safe and compliant storage and disposal of your hazardous waste. Even if you need to get rid of clinical or asbestos waste in Reading, you can rely on us for effective waste management.
