Acumen’s waste transport and transfer services are backed up by our specialist containers offering nationwide coverage for the disposal of hazardous asbestos wastes.

As a member of the Asbestos Removal Contractors Association (ARCA) Acumen Waste Services provide a safe and efficient service to the asbestos abatement industry and we are the preferred waste management partner to the premier operators within this sector.

Asbestos waste is taken directly to landfill using a modern fleet of hook lift vehicles and associated containers ranging from 20 to 35 cubic yards. The disposal of hazardous materials is taken via HM Revenue & Customs approved weighbridges.

Our vehicles are strategically located  throughout the UK and  are equipped with trailers so they can transport two containers per vehicle when needed. This policy also mitigates the risk associated with handling, transferring and bulking of asbestos containing materials (ACMs) at intermediate locations and creates an entirely transparent audit trail for each individual waste collection.

We understand that providing a timely service is essential to the asbestos abatement sector and while buying in services at the most economical rates possible is important, the cost of poor service is immense compared to the small premium on the cost of the waste container. The traceability, ease of auditing and transparency of transactions and movements of hazardous waste – all legal requirements under the duty of care set out in the UK’s Environmental Protection Act – are of significant importance to many of our clients.

We provide detailed online reporting through the password protected client areas on our website. Typically, important information such as site licenses, consignment paperwork, weight tickets and audit reports are uploaded on a daily basis. All our vehicles are tracked using satellite technology so your site managers get logistics information in real time…
