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.

Duty of Care and the Law on Waste

Please be aware of the Law around waste. Anyone who produces, imports, keeps, stores, transports waste must take all reasonable steps to ensure that waste is managed properly. 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.
