Our ISO 14001 accreditation is an important element in how we operate and deliver our services. So we are pleased to announce we have recently been audited for re-certification and passed with flying colours.
The effective date of our continuing certification is 16th October 2015 for a further three year period.
Our original registration date was six years ago and for this entire period we have had six monthly audits by BSI and we have managed to maintain an impressive “non-conformity free” status.
This is down to us applying robust environmental procedures and remaining legally compliant. In addition all our employees recognise the importance of environmental control and our legal and moral responsibilities.
We believe our experience as an ISO 14001 accredited waste management service provider has also enabled us to help our customers gain and maintain their own accreditation to the standard.
We have provided advice on pollution prevention and assisted them to comply with waste and environmental legislation.
The new certificate will be available for download from our website in the next couple of weeks. If you would like a copy in advance please do not hesitate to contact us.

Managing waste costs money but poor waste management costs even more. While small changes to your waste management system may seem trivial, when they are added up the benefits are worth it. The costs you may be aware of that come with waste management are: skips, landfill charges and air pollution charges. But there are many other costs you may not have taken into consideration, such as: transportation of waste, wasted time, wasted energy, wasted water, and environmental fines.
There are many benefits of reducing, reusing and recycling your waste. For one, it will save you money. The cost of putting your waste in a landfill has dramatically increased, going to £64 per tonne in April 2012 and rising steadily by £8 every year since then. Reducing waste will save your overheads. Reusing waste will reduce the cost of purchases raw materials and recycling waste may reduce disposal costs over time. Another benefit of reducing, reusing and recycling your waste is that it improves and enhances your business image. By reducing your environmental impact, it can impress and improve your reputation with customers and stakeholders alike. A third benefit in reducing, reusing and recycling your waste is that it makes sure you are meeting legal obligation. As a business owner you are responsible for managing the waste of your business in a responsible manner. The main piece of legislation relating to waste is referred to as your “Duty of Care”. Your actions may also improve the impact your business has on the environment and may also improve your workplace.
Before you can put a plan in place to reduce, reuse and recycle your waste, you need to discover and check what type of waste your business is producing. Perhaps your an office who is producing reams upon reams of paper waste. Or perhaps your a chemical business and your producing hazardous waste. Waste management west Midlands doesn’t exclude one type of waste production. You should perform a waste audit to discover what type of waste your business produces. A waste audit should find out how and where waste is produced, find out if any waste is hazardous, find the quantity and type of waste, and find the current disposal cost – this may come as a shock to you.
From your waste audit, you should be able to carefully see what kind of waste your business produces and what you can do about it, whether that’s reduce the waste, reuse the waste or recycle the waste before disposal.
