It is our intention and objective to reduce and minimise to the most reasonably practicable extent, the amount of waste and hazardous waste generated and to minimise to the lowest volume reasonably practicable, waste sent to landfill by exploring and utilising all available cost effective properly authorised and certificated waste recycling services.

This policy is implemented through the operation of our BSI ISO 9001:2015 quality management system (certificate FS666939) and through the parallel operation of our environmental management system.

Relevant records, including waster transfer notes, copies of our own and our suppliers’ Environment Agency waste handling certificates, etc. are generated or obtained and held on file indefinitely for reference by appropriate authorities and interested parties.

Where appropriate, in-house or client/principal contractor-originated registers, records, forms, etc. are generated, updated and completed as applicable with relevant items held in our own systems, either electronically or in hard copy format as appropriate.
