Managing Waste & Disposal

Managing Waste & Disposal

Collins operate in a highly regulated world of compliance, health and safety, legislation and operator training, where disposal of waste comes at a financial cost.

People are becoming much more aware of their waste responsibilities and appreciate that it must be managed correctly. In fact the law insists that if you produce any waste you have a duty of care to ensure that it is disposed of at a licensed facility and obtain documentation to prove it.  

Recycling has become embedded in everyone’s lives now and Collins champions that ethos at its four regional transfer stations. While our Leiston, Bury St Edmunds and Ardleigh sites achieve a primary sort, our main Tattingstone site south of Ipswich provides the final secondary screening, together with the asbestos landfill facility. The waste is sorted into items such as wood, green waste, soils and aggregates to name a few.

All your waste is passed through sorting mechanisms to extract value, reusable parts, and reduce the amount we send to landfill. Collins is very proud of the fact that some 95% of waste is diverted from landfill.

A number of individuals and companies bring their waste to us – particularly asbestos – rather than having skips. We will charge a fee subject to the type of waste and quantity.
