Waste Analysis, Waste Research & Resource Evaluation Services
WasteRES has been formed to provide waste analysis and research to various businesses that produce or process waste with data which is both independent and unbiased from any service provider, machine supplier, external contractor or consultants. The main aim of our business is to provide both physical and chemical waste analysis through waste research. We do this whilst predominately targeting the waste industry; however, we welcome enquiries from other industries.
We take pride in all our research projects which focus on attention to detail. Our priority is Health and Safety and Personnel Hygiene, which are paramount within the workplace.
The objectives of our business are to ultimately redirect waste from landfill.
We now offer a new service, SEND A SAMPLE – SURVEY
Global Services for your Business
Our aim is to help all businesses that > produce > process > collect > commercial and domestic wastes.
- Building / construction site contract waste clearing, tidying, cleaning, recycling and general labouring.
- Packaging production manufacturing by product waste review.
- We provide detailed information for waste produced in the following sectors: industrial, commercial, domestic.
- Recycling research through composition analysis, looking through the waste manually and hand sorting this into pre-determined categories.
- Manual waste screening using different screens to determine fraction size.
- Cross contamination checking to see what is in the waste and if you are using best avoidance practice.
- Improving Recycling efficiency and reducing cost where possible.
- Surveying of waste by looking at what waste is produced in which areas, including collection methods.
- Arrangements can be made for various chemical analysis tests.
- Monitoring material supply and transport.
- Laboratory sampling collections.
- Waste equipment feasibility studies.
- Cost effectiveness studies.
- Waste reduction minimisation review.
- Waste audits - auditing.
- Independent machine equipment testing (manual) technological endorsement / verification services.
All enquires please contact UK 0114 257 0856 INT 0044 114 257 0856.
Other services on request:
- Commercial building clearance, contents disposal and recycling - Shop, Factory, Farm.
- Recycling labouring.
- Solid Waste and Environmental Management.
- Nationwide outdoor events / festivals litter picking and solid waste recovery / recycling.
- Property Clean Ups - abandoned - vacant - deserted - void - repossessed - commercial and domestic properties.
STOP LANDFILL - Please recycle, what is dumped is lost !
We have spent a number of years within the waste and recycling industry starting out in commercial and domestic building clearances which involved the correct disposal of items that could not be sold or recycled.
Our experience also includes logistics and facilities management arranging collections for some 40 plus waste streams across several locations, inclusive of some hazardous waste. Our work also includes storage, compliance, permitting, and European waste codes for each waste stream.
Waste Sampling & Waste Analysis
Our waste analysis and waste research covers the full cycle of both residual and dry recycling.
Waste Research Projects
At WasteRES we would like to hear from companies seeking solutions for improving component material and recycling methods through detailed dedicated waste research projects. These projects look at new innovative ideas, whereby some of the on-site work would be carried out by ourselves in conjunction with using various third party laboratories and educational organisations across the United Kingdom.
We would be interested to hear about your waste research endeavours and what new unique solutions or processes you have developed as a result of this research, for the reuse of waste materials, no matter where you are in the world.
Waste Analysis & Waste Research
Solid waste analysis is where a representative sample of waste is taken and a start weight recorded, this is done to determine the specific percentage content of a particular waste material and provides valuable information to various authorities, waste processors and re-processors.
Further waste analysis is done by manually sorting the waste into different categories with each component weight recorded separately giving a exact fraction weight for each waste type. You can also determine the size of a particular fraction using a detachable screen depending on the required test.
Waste analysis assists in industrial plant performance, machine performance, which also looks at recycling behaviour trends throughout the year. This process also identifies where improvements / changes should be made to improve overall efficiency. As landfill and raw materials are running out it is vital that new techniques and methods are developed especially in packaging reduction and better waste reuse.
The best methods for solid waste management are initially prevention, followed by minimization and then reuse, better recycling efforts and processing, energy recovery and ultimately disposal.
In the United Kingdom the elements of municipal solid waste generally consist of recycling, composting, landfilling, and waste to energy, the unsorted elements are commonly known as rubbish. This waste consists of everyday items that are discarded by the general public and can also refer to food waste, which in some parts of the country is collected separately, this is dependent on what solid waste management systems are in place and can vary depending on each local authority.
Composition of municipal solid waste varies greatly depending how the waste culture has developed. The waste stream greatly consists of un-recyclable packaging materials mainly plastics and other miscellaneous solid wastes from residential, commercial, institutional and industrial sectors. Municipal solid waste does not include agricultural, medical, radioactive and sewerage sludge.
The characterisation of municipal solid waste can change depending on a number of external influencing factors these can be the four seasons, calendar of events festivities, wealth of a particular neighbourhood.
Residual waste is waste that is left over from households containing material that have not yet been separated out at source and sent for processing, waste mainly falls into the following categories which are biodegradable - kitchen and garden, recyclable, inert, small waste electrical and electronic equipment, hazardous, toxic, medical, composite wastes such as Tetra pack and waste plastics such as toys.
This type of Information is also useful to the person responsible for solid waste management and gives vital detailed information to their industry or organisations that produce large amounts of mixed solid waste. This is beneficial to establish the individual composition content and could be useful in establishing best practice, give a indication on recycling performance, increase recycling figures at source and thus could ultimately reduce costs, giving a solid indication of where targeted improvements need to be made and how environmentally friendly your business actually is.
In my opinion it is going to take a massive change from initial raw material to better product design with end use in mind and a change of attitude to the disposable society of which we live, to greatly improve the efficiency of overall solid waste management.
