Durham Mini Skips are proud to be County Durham's local waste management specialists. We offer affordable waste disposal in Durham. By minimising the amount of waste that ends up in landfill, we can transform it into valuable resources. We collect waste from domestic and commercial projects, even local authorities and large organisations.
As experts in the waste disposal industry, we are serious about the well-being of the environment and offering the most efficient solution available. We adhere to the Waste Hierarchy Regulations (2012) throughout our company operations. It outlines the procedures we must follow in the collection, transportation, recovery and disposal of waste.
Reudce Waste: Even though we can't physically control how much waste our customer produce, we can offer expert guidance and advice on how they can reduce waste. This is not only good for the environment, but can also be a cost-effective solution in the long run.
Re-use Waste: This is one of the most efficient waste disposal methods which we implement. Reclamation of any waste materials such as unwanted rubble or brick gives the materials a second chance to be useful instead of taking up space at a landfill site. Our experts will inspect the material and trace back its origins to make sure they're safe to be used.
Recycle Waste: Although a very similar process to reclamation, recycling refers to re-using a material after it's been transformed into another object. It's a sustainable method of putting materials back into the supply chain. At Durham Mini Skips we aim to recycle as much of your waste as possible, helping you reduce your carbon footprint.
Recover Waste: This is an extremely technical process which isn't suitable for all projects. This process includes incineration with energy recovery and gasification to produce energy in the forms such as power, heat and fuel. This process requires a detailed consultation if you want to recover energy from your waste.
Dispose Waste:Unfortunately, not all materials can be recycled. Some are destined for landfill because they are not suitable for any of the above processes. This is usually the last resort for us. A typical example if the disposal of asbestos, because it's a hazardous material which require special chemical treatment.
