A waste transfer station, also referred to as a material recycling facility, is where waste is taken once it has been collected from residential, commercial and industrial settings. At Batesy Skip Hire we aim to recycle 95% of all the waste we manage on our site, and do our best to be as eco-friendly as possible during waste disposal. Alongside our popular skip hire service, our custom built waste transfer station and recycling centre accepts a range of waste. If you’re searching for a waste recycling service in Belfast that cares for the environment, look no further.
Do you know your 5 waste types? Let us explain in the following blog.
Commonly found in households and industries, this waste type includes organic liquids, dirty water, wash water, waste detergents and rainwater. It is also important to keep in mind that some liquid waste is not environmentally friendly whatsoever. Wastewater, or (point source waste as it is often called), is the terminology used for any manufactured waste that exists in liquid form. On the other hand, non-point source waste is the term used for natural liquid waste.
Solid rubbish can include a large variety of items that are regularly found in households as well as commercial/industrial locations. This waste type can further be broken down into the following categories:
- Plastic Waste
- Paper Rubbish
Whether your needs are commercial, industrial, or domestic, if you require a quick and easy solid waste disposal method, look no further than Batesy Skip Hire.
Organic waste can be found in almost all homes. This waste consists of food, garden waste, and similar organic items. This waste type needs to be appropriately disposed of when generated despite the eco-friendly advantage of it being broken down naturally by microorganisms over time. Alarmingly, organic waste in landfills causes the production of methane, so it must never be accidentally discarded alongside general waste.
As you would imagine, recyclable waste refers to waste that can be converted to reusable products via waste recycling. A large portion of the items classed as construction waste comes within this category, with metal, masonry and furniture all considered recyclable waste. This waste type is important, as recycling reduces the need for extracting, refining and processing raw materials, a process which generates significant air and water pollution.
As the title would suggest, hazardous waste includes all types of rubbish that are potentially dangerous. Flammable, corrosive and toxic waste are all within this category. As well as potentially being of danger to humans, this waste type can be harmful to the environment, and must be disposed of correctly, ideally by a waste disposal company.
