Trade Waste Equipment
Businesses and organisations need to have a dedicated space for waste disposal, particularly if they produce a large amount, as well as the necessary containers to keep the different kinds of rubbish in. The purpose of equipment like waste bins is to keep substantial amounts of paper and card, plastic and other products safe and secure and to prevent things like cross contamination so that sorting is made easier when products get to their final destination.
Trade bins are normally quite large for commercial premises, primarily to cope with the volume of waste that needs to be handled. You can opt for something smaller such as a 120 litre capacity wheelie bin or try something like a 1100 litre capacity trade waste bin. Many companies provide these ‘free’ as part of their contract and they are designed to be loaded and unloaded easily using hydraulic lifts.
For the building trade, the common method of dealing with waste is to hire a skip. These can again vary in size from small to extremely large and are usually delivered by the company to a particular address. Permission from the council is normally required if the skip is put in the road outside a property as there are extra safety concerns to be addressed such as putting up warning signs or night lights. There is an extra cost for the permit of around £20 in these instances.
For businesses that have sensitive paperwork that needs to be disposed of safely, there are a range of mobile and industrial size shredders that can deal with high volumes. Most companies will have a small to medium sized shredder on site and trade waste disposal services will often have an industrial size machine that processes paper ready for taking to recycling. Shredders can also be hired for specific occasions.
One of the common machines used for waste disposal is the baler which can compact and bind materials like paper and card into easier to handle bundles. The bundles are tied automatically with either wire or special baling tape. Larger commercial outfits which deal in a lot of waste will often have a baler on site which helps reduce the amount of space taken up by waste in the first place.
A compactor or press can reduce your waste by up to 90% in some cases and is again a way of quickly cutting down the amount of space taken up by your rubbish. There are machines that can compress bags of waste and others that are designed to handle bigger amounts, often with a hoist that can lift large bins into a central vat.
Roll On Roll Off Containers
Roll on roll off (RORO) containers are for large amounts of waste which can be hauled onto the back of a truck. These are ideal for construction and demolition waste, industrial and commercial waste and large volume but non-compactable waste.
For businesses that produce a lot of food waste there is equipment available such as food driers that take all the moisture out of consumables as well as on site composters that can be used for municipal scale recycling. These can often turn food into compost in just a few weeks which can then be used for agricultural purposes or local use. A recent development has been to combine a machine that first dries food out and then uses this as fuel to power something like biomass power plant or even a simple CHP boiler.
