Non-Hazardous Waste

Acumen can provide a comprehensive non-hazardous waste service to clients across the UK, offering collections, disposal and sampling.

Nearly every process involves some form of waste and there are many types of non-hazardous waste including food waste, soils and stone (inert waste) and paper.  Acumen will dispose of non-hazardous packaged waste in its many various forms, which include drums of multiple sizes, IBC’s and small packages such as lab waste.

All enquiries conform to a strict auditing process with paperwork trails that provide the customer with the certain knowledge that their waste streams are being dealt with cost effectively and compliantly within current and expanding legislation. A number of disposal outlets are used, including our own facilities at York and Wolverhampton. These outlets have full Waste Management Licenses including Waste Management Exemptions for handling recyclable waste.

Depending on your requirements, we offer collections on a regular basis and can do contracted collections and disposals. Alternatively, if you require a one-off service, our competitive prices allow us to provide a quality service.

If you would like to know more about our non-hazardous waste services, please do not hesitate to contact one of our team today.
