Glenn Currie, Waste King’s managing director, explained: “When it comes to waste storage, using steel hoarding is an excellent choice – from both an environmental and a cost-effective perspective.
“These containers offer excellent security since they’re difficult to break or climb over. They offer excellent privacy since each ‘side’ of the hoarding comprises one solid sheet of metal.
“They meet safety standards since they act as a solid barrier separating the waste from the outside world – and they offer great flexibility, since they can be customised via a range of accessories to meet customers’ particular needs. The panels have also been proved able to withstand wind speeds of up to 50mph,” he added.
Waste King’s steel waste hoarding containers:
Won’t rot or degrade
Are made of high quality steel components and won’t burn
Are portable and, thus, re-usable – which can save customers’ money
Can accommodate changes in direction and elevation
Can incorporate mechanical gate locks with unique entry codes
Can be provided in customers’ corporate colours, to enhance their professional image – and customers’ signage can be added, using special adhesive tape
The most commonly used arrangement of these containers – each panel of which measures two metres square and is 0.5 millimetres thick - is the ‘square system’ which has a footprint of four square metres.
“In addition – or as an alternative to - these steel waste hoarding containers, Waste King provides a steel waste cage,” said Andy Cattigan, Waste King’s operations director.
“Fast, cost effective and easy to erect, these cages offer a similar excellent degree of security since they’re difficult to break or climb over – and, with the addition of trampoline sheeting, they can provide privacy, as well as separate customers’ waste from the outside world.
“Moreover, like the waste hoarding container panels, the cage can be customised. It won’t rot or burn; can be re-used, and deters the graffiti artist and bill stickers.
“Once customers have put waste materials into their cage or container, a Waste King team of Environment Agency-licensed operatives can come along to sort, clear and then dispose of all the items,” Cattigan explained. “It’s cleaner as far as the environment is concerned, neater for the customer and, frankly, easier for Waste King to sort, segregate and dispose of the waste.”
A key claim of Waste King’s is that it guarantees to recycle 85 per cent of all the waste – whatever it is - that it collects. In reality, the figure is now well over 90 per cent - mainly thanks to Waste King’s meticulous waste segregation policy.
“After collecting the waste materials, we bring them to our site and separate it - by hand or machinery,” Currie continued.
“If possible, we recycle the materials there and then but, if we don’t have the necessary facilities to recycle them – for example, in the case of such things as plastic – we put them in a large container which we send to the local waste transfer station. The station staff there have a clean waste stream system which results in a 99.54% recycling rate.
Waste King’s business ethos is to send the minimum amount of whatever it collects to landfill. It aims to reduce long term pollution to a minimum and thus help protect the environment for current and future generations.
