Waste received at our waste transfer station is handled using a strict procedure that involves inspection, validation, reception, segregation and then finally onward transport for final disposal.
The skip is uncovered at the entrance to our site. At this time our operatives inspects the load and issues a tipping ticket. The ticket identifies where the waste originated, the type of waste and the driver and vehicle details.
Assuming that the waste is acceptable for the site and complies with the site licence the waste is accepted onto the site. This system of acceptance of waste ensures that loads are correctly identified and collation of the tipping tickets provides an overview of the days waste receipts.
Loads not in compliance with the Site Waste Management licence are at this stage refused and returned to site.
In order to ensure compliance with this system we employ inspectors to spot check load after acceptance. The inspector will look at the load against the ticket to ensure that the details match.
Following acceptance, the load is escorted to the tipping hall where it is tipped. The hall is divided into various bays. At this point where possible waste is segregated. Skips containing mixed loads are tipped into the largest of our bays. This waste is then mechanically sorted.
Inert waste containing rubbish is cleaned in readiness for transport to the appropriate facility.Recyclable materials are then loaded on to our fleet of bulker lorries for onward transport.
Using this information gathered from the tipping tickets we compile a record of waste received and dispatched and can identify the quantities and types of waste handled.
