Snowdrop Project

2020-02-17T14:16:34+00:00February 17th, 2020|

We’ve donated boulders from Walleys Landfill to be used in a feature on a prominent local roundabout. The council have used them to create an eye-catching Snowdrop Sculpture feature on Northwood Lane roundabout (Clayton), which is now starting to take shape. We think it’s a great idea to put these boulders to good use whilst supporting an imaginative local community project! This project has been created in partnership with Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council, PM Training, Newcastle-under-Lyme BID and Derek Mawby Surfacing. We’re proud to support the communities in which we live and work – this may be through supporting projects [...]

Update from MD on London Marathon Challenge

2017-02-16T10:13:36+00:00May 10th, 2016|

As you are aware, on 24th April I took part in the 36th London Marathon with a goal to complete the course in 3 hours and 15 minutes. I finished the event in 3 hours and 41 minutes which was quite a disappointing time personally however, I went into the Marathon with an injury picked up during training and competed against my doctors orders; so just being able to complete the course was a great achievement! Unfortunately the fact that I went ahead with the challenge has led to further injury therefore I have had to take the decision to [...]

Introduction to new Technical Guidance WM3

2017-06-28T11:33:35+01:00February 9th, 2015|

The Environment Agency technical guidance on how to assess & classify waste (WM2) is set to change. In June 2015 the way we assess and classify waste in the UK will change due to the full affects of the CLP regulations coming into force. As a result the current technical guidance will also need to change to align with the underpinning legislation and the EA have produced the new draft guidance or WM3 which is currently in a consultation period. Anyone who has responsibility for Waste will find the consultation interesting and all are invited to have their say. The Red Industries Operations [...]

Update on Waste Management Regulations

2015-01-14T09:05:54+00:00January 14th, 2015|

From the 1st January 2015 certain provisions contained in the Waste (England & Wales) Regulations 2011 came into force. These regulations are part of an on-going legislative drive to prioritise the recovery, rather than landfilling, of Waste Materials. The regulations specifically require that waste paper, metals, plastics and glasses be collected separately and not comingled with other wastes that make them unrecyclable. By this time all waste collection authorities should have implemented the regulations however full guidance on the provisions can be found at www.gov.uk/waste-legislation-and-regulations
