Get Up and Running Fast After Flood Damage

Get Up and Running Fast

Following a flood, there is so much to consider to enable a property owner to be dry and clean. SKIP HIRE  and GRAB HIRE services will help a fast recovery for organisations, communities, businesses and individuals suitable to move back in. 

The recent weather that Storm Angus has bought with it on the South coast of England, especially Somerset;  Taunton, Wellington, Yeovil, Tiverton,  Chard…. through to Exeter. The National Flood Forum is a charity that provides support and advice to communities and individuals about flooding. There site is good about flood prevention and insurance but Wasteology want to offer a practical solution to quick clear up.

Regardless of Insurance

It is the responsibility of the property owner to protect their properties from risk of flooding. BUT if you have suffered water damage then flood restoration for either domestic or commercial buildings requires some form of waste that needs to be treated legally by a waste management company. Wasteology Limited is a fully licensed waste management company that is legally allowed to collect and treat waste. 

Domestic Flood Damage

Wasteology recommended a typical builders 6 yard skip for most domestic properties. For mixed bulky waste then the cost to Taunton would be : £220 + vat ( all in is £264 for 10 days hire with no plasterboard allowed in the mixed waste) for further quotes of different sized skips and different locations please follow this LINK for an instant quote.

Commercial and Industrial Flood Damage Restoration

One of the most popular options in most cases is a typical builders 6 yard skip, for mixed bulky waste. As an exam plea 6 yard to Taunton will cost  £220 + vat ( all in is £264 for 10 days hire with no plasterboard allowed in the mixed waste) for further quotes of different sized skips and different locations please follow this LINK for an instant quote.

However, for commercial and industrial property owners/landlords there can be many other choices of containers. Our team will advise the best solution. Here are some of the services which are on offer to clear Industrial and commercial sites:

  1. Small and large size skips: SKIP HIRE INFORMATION
  2. Larger Skips are called Roll On Roll Offs here is some more information on this option: RORO INFORMATION
  3. If access is difficult for a vehicle to drop off or collect a skip is not possible then GRAB HIRE is available to remove waste of various loads. Not just large quantities, part loads are acceptable: GRAB HIRE INFORMATION
  4. Small waste collections can be resolved with having a tough bag that carries a tonne of waste. These are sometimes known as Dumpy bags/ Bulk bags, tonne bag or jumbo bag. These bags are £5 each with a charge for collection based on haulage and weight.

Tipping For All Size Vehicles

Who Can Tip at Recycling Sites in Somerset?

Somerset County has recently announced changes to the permits at Recycling Sites. This is a popular change that many councils in England are introducing. Somerset Waste Partnership are introducing this change on the 3rd October 2016  as a response to residents demands to improve waste services . The desired result will be less congestion of large vehicles such as vans over 3.5 tonners and some cost savings to Somerset. 

The Somerset Recycling sites do a fantastic job and certainly supply the increasing  population with a vital service and encourage REUSE and RECYCLE before disposal. Wasteology are fully behind the waste hierarchy and says a  company "We Won't Waste Your Waste" . However, with improved social behaviour we all want to treat waste as a resource and not encourage fly tipping, therefore Wasteology Limited would like to offer their Licensed Waste Transfer Station to those businesses or individuals that are affected by this change.

Wasteology is a family run business operating in Greenham Quarry, Wellington Where To Find Us. 

Undercover Tipping

We have recently built a new shed that enables all our tipping customers to do so undercover. There is a weigh bridge and all waste is paid for by weight and type of waste coming in. IF you are unsure of how it works or would like professional advice then please give our team a call on 01823 672 900.

The hours of operation for tipping:

Monday – Friday 08:00am – 17:00pm and Saturday 08:00am – 12:00pm

This Duty of Care is imposed under section 34 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990. Also householders must ensure that household waste is properly disposed of. The general Duty of Care by law states that if you collect waste from others you must be authorized under law to do so with a Waste Carriers License and have a written description of the waste you have collected and a copy of a waste transfer note will be supplied by Wasteology after we have taken control of the waste.

There are so many cases when a Grab Hire service is the right solution. Whenever access is difficult for skips or manual work then you should consider the hire of a Grab Loader. Wasteology have fully trained staff to clear the waste or assist with deliveries that need to reach over obstacles or even when a delivery has various points of dispersion. For example a Motorway maintenance contract needs aggregate delivered in smaller quantities at various positions over a large site. A Grab Hire lorry will enable this to take place minimising your costs with  time effectiveness on the construction project.

Other areas that we have helped with are; site clearance, fly tipping, assisting councils for a rapid response to clear waste, private estates might have unwanted waste left on their land and Wasteology will clear that waste quickly and effectively. Landlords may also suffer from unwanted rubbish left at their properties and access over garden walls or fences is difficult unless you hire a grab Loader and use the long extendable arm that a Grab Lorry has. 

So if you are not sure, just pick up the telephone and give our friendly team a call and ask for advice if you are not sure. Wasteology will provide a recommendation of which waste service is most suitable for you. Call 01823 672 900 NOW.
