ENVIRONMENTALLY MINDFUL DEMOLITION AND DISMANTLING COMPANY BASED IN THE NORTH WEST

RECYCLING AND RECLAMATION

The estimating team will identify the materials that are to be reclaimed, recycled, reused, or disposed of off-site. They will calculate approximate tonnages or volumes of these materials and have definite costs and final destinations for the materials. As some reclaimed metals are very valuable, it is imperative that we achieve the best value for these as this is generally credited to the client in some form.

Materials to be recycled

OUR RECYCLING POLICY

We actively promote the maximum recycling potential of our demolition arisings. This helps reduce the mining of aggregates and minimises the burden to landfill.

Demolition and Dismantling (NW) Ltd are aware of their corporate social responsibility and strive to provide sustainable and environmentally conscious service offerings. We are committed to the protection of the environment and are constantly looking at ways to reduce our carbon footprint.

It is company policy that wherever possible, site generated waste materials are recycled, and the use of landfill is minimised to those wastes that cannot be recycled. Where possible, we aim to recycle over 95% of the materials reclaimed. These are collated and segregated into appropriate areas ready to be processed further. Our group offers to use local waste management and metal recycling firms.

GENERALLY, THE FOLLOWING WASTE STREAMS ARE PRODUCED...

PLASTERBOARD

Loaded into roll on/off containers, this is then taken to a plasterboard recycling facility.

TIMBER

Loaded into containers, this is then taken to a timber recycling facility for chipping or reprocessing.

FLUORESCENT LIGHT FITTINGS

Placed in a dedicated container and sent to a specialist processing and recycling facility.

METALS

Non-ferrous is transferred to the metal recycling facility for further processing. This maximises the value for recycling. Ferrous metals are processed on site into various grades and then transported to specialist recycling providers, ensuring maximum returns.

GLASS

Glass is removed but not normally reused. Previous risk assessments have determined that removing glass by demolition plant is safer than removal by hand. The glass is loaded where practicable, into bins specifically for this type of waste.

GENERAL WASTE

General waste is made up of all the items that cannot be salvaged once all the materials have been sorted. It is not in the interest of Demolition and dismantling, or your environmental or financial interest to send bulk volumes to landfill.

ASBESTOS

Asbestos containing materials are packaged and disposed of in compliance with asbestos regulations and HSE requirements.

BRICK AND CONCRETE

Where possible, brick and concrete from demolished buildings is excavated or crushed on site to be used for ground fill.
