Our advice for farm waste management
- Monitor all aspects of your waste production
Agricultural businesses produce a wide range of waste types, therefore the first part of your farm waste management process should be taking into consideration the different types of waste which will need to be collected and disposed of.
- Have a plan for hazardous waste
Due to the nature of the work, each agricultural business will produce some form of hazardous waste, therefore having a detailed plan and structure in place to handle, process and dispose of this waste should be part of your overarching plan.
- Reduce waste where possible
We advise all our clients to minimise the amount of waste they are producing where possible. This is something all businesses should look to improve, especially hazardous waste and materials which cannot be easily recycled. However, for farming companies, reducing waste can be a difficult task. Looking into investing in new technologies, donating extra products and reducing the materials you are purchasing are simple ways to minimise waste production.
- Work with a reputable farm waste management provider
For companies with large amounts of waste, it is essential to work with a reputable waste management provider. Working with a qualified team means the waste will be handled properly and within the correct legislation. Failing to manage waste properly can result in fines and legal action, therefore it is key to work with a qualified and licensed farm waste management company.
