National Recycling Week: Your A-Z Guide

National Recycling Week is the one week in the year where various organisations, businesses and ordinary people come together to promote a common goal. According to the organisers WRAP, it’s not just about recycling, but recycling more of the right things and more often. This year, it runs from September 20th to 26th.

Companies like CBS Waste are committed to recycling and we aim to keep landfill to a minimum by recycling at least 80% of the waste that we take away from customers. We’re also fully licensed and provide customers with Waste Transfer Notices.

Ozone Layer Preservation Day

By Ellis Ranger

The importance of the ozone layer is next to none. Its existence is the foundation for all life on earth as without it, life would not be able to flourish as it does.

It’s important to note however, not many people are aware that September 16th is an international day commending the preservation of the worlds aegis.

This year marks the 35th anniversary of the beginning of a complete global effort to protect and preserve our ozone layer, as laid out in the Vienna Convention. This was the first protocol ever to be signed by all countries that were involved.

Is The New ‘Plastic Tax’ Already Ringing Alarm Bells?

By Ellis Ranger

As of April 2022, all companies operating inside of the U.K will have to pay a so-called plastic tax. It applies to plastic either imported into or manufactured in the UK and does not contain at least 30% recycled plastic.

The objective is relatively simple and it is to promote the re-use of plastic packaging and overall recycling efforts. It is hoped that the tax will end up reducing the amount of plastic that would otherwise be burned or put in landfill.

How AI Will Revolutionise Waste Management

By Ellis Ranger

In the past 20 years, the rise of artificial intelligence has been unprecedented with companies such as Apple setting the standard with their Siri system, an AI personal assistant which can be found in all of their modern products.

And Alexa has been created by Amazon as an alternative. What does this have to do with waste management? And can AI actually revolutionise the waste industry?

Why Is Waste Disposal Causing Headaches For Holiday Let Owners?

By Ellis Ranger

Holiday let owners are under fire for not giving holiday-goers enough information about waste disposal. They should have a waste management contract in place and not be breaking the terms of it.

With the rise of AirBnB and a boom in the rental of UK holiday homes, self-catering waste remains a big issue. But why has this been such a problem? And what is being done to stamp it out for good?

WEEE Disposal: The Economy’s Secret Weapon?

The extent of the government’s borrowing has been laid bare, standing at a third of a trillion pounds. But what’s WEEE disposal got to do with the economy? 

The answer is actually quite simple. There is a strong case to say that it won’t just benefit the planet, but it will actually help us financially too. Recently, a UK thinktank suggested that the rescue and repair of household goods could create a range of new highly and lower skilled jobs

Why Fly Tippers Are Still Going Unpunished

In April, we explored the issue of fly tippers following a shocking BBC documentary which asked why so few offenders end up in court. Fly tipping is the illegal deposit of any waste onto land that does not have a licence to accept it.

And perhaps the situation hasn’t really improved since then given the horrifying number of news reports about fly tipping. But are the £50,000 fines and prison sentences strong enough?

Why Assuming With Recycling Is Dangerous

Recycling is one of our best hopes of protecting the planet and reducing damage to it. You might think recycling is simply putting rubbish in a bin or giving something else a new lease of life by re-using it.

But there’s more to it than that and recycling also has to be done correctly. Many things can go in a bin, but there are different coloured bins to consider. And it’s not a one-size-fits-all when it comes to what councils can take. Some local authorities will be able to collect certain items in recycling bins while others won’t.

Our wheelie bins were disgusting, especially the green garden waste and the blue recycle waste. There were flies and maggots everywhere during the recent hot spell, so the smell was rank.Rang and booked CBS guys to clean these two and see how they turned out. They came, they cleaned and they left them sparkling and smelling sweet. Great job done. Now booking a regular monthly clean.😃😃😃😃

Contacted them to clean my wheelie bin. Sent a Facebook message with a quick response with prices, came the next day when my bin was emptied. My general rubbish was in pretty bad shape and they left it sparkling! Really happy with the rapid response and a very clean bin. Will keep the number close when they need doing again! 100% recommend, fantastic service!
