Factory Waste Guide
If you work in, run or own a factory, you’ll have seen for yourself the eye-watering amount of waste the industrial sector can create. From packaging to faulty products, drummed chemical waste to old machinery, you’ll know that waste can mount up from all corners of the factory floor, harming productivity and health and safety in the process.
But it isn’t until you look at the level of industrial waste nationwide that you see the true extent of the issue. For instance, the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) found that annual industrial waste production stood at a staggering 24.2 million tonnes – the equivalent of around 600,000 six-axle lorries or 66 Empire State Buildings – and that only half of all waste is recycled.
Needless to say, industrial waste is a huge issue facing both industry and environment alike. But if you know how to dispose of it responsibly you can achieve optimal levels of productivity, protect the environment and comply with all waste disposal legislation.
Use our interactive guide below to ensure you appropriately dispose of or recycle your industrial waste at all times.
