Illegal waste dumping: How to dispose of waste
Illegal waste dumping, also known as fly dumping or tipping can have serious consequences for both the people living in the surrounding area and the environment.
Dumping any type of waste is an illegal act with consequences in terms of fines and potential custodial sentences if severe enough. At Mantank we specialise in the removal of drainage waste, slit and sludge, environmental waste and hazardous/chemical materials.
If any of these substances are disposed of in areas where damage can be caused, the effects can be detrimental. These materials are often very harmful to the general public, and cause not only significant eyesores but can also be the reason for accidents or illness.
How to dispose of waste
The method in which you should dispose of waste is dependant on the waste that you are dealing with. For those working in industrial environments a build up of slit and sludge can be detrimental to workflow, therefore by contracting the help of a sludge removal team – the waste will be removed and disposed of professionally.
Or, an issue within sewage networks may result in an overflow of waste – something that can have a huge effect on the environment. In this circumstance, removing the waste can be a complex job and something that would be sped up by enlisting the guidance of a qualified waste removal company.
They will have the equipment to ensure that all waste is removed and disposed of in the correct manor.
If you are a site manager or a business owner that requires assistance for waste disposal, Mantank Environmental Services are here to help. We work on a variety of projects and have years of experience in working with clients throughout the UK.
Handling and disposing of hazardous materials
If you have hazardous or chemical materials that need to be disposed of, it is a legal requirement to follow a specific process depending on the waste type. There may also be a requirement for the person handling the materials to have a qualification or accreditation to prove their competence.
With the potential to cause damage to both the people in the surrounding areas and the wider environment, it is essential to follow strict guidelines when working with chemical or hazardous materials.
Under no circumstances would we recommend removing and disposing of this type of waste without the help of a qualified professional.
