Waste Management

How we manage our waste and natural resources by taking a circular reduce, reuse and recycling approach rather than the traditional linear route of direct to landfill is always at the forefront of our waste management services and throughout all of Walsh’s work.

Aiming to innovate waste management in construction, we have developed a ‘cradle-to-cradle’ approach where all discarded waste is considered as a valuable resource which can be fed back into the manufacturing and construction industry, rather than dumped as a legacy of our throw-away culture, creating sustainable waste management solutions for projects nationally.

In a recent Waste and Resource Management 2011 report, the Institute of Civil Engineers calls for an ‘evolution’ of waste management in construction and many other sectors across the UK.

Construction and demolition waste

The construction industry plays a major role in the generation of waste materials and could be significantly reduced by better design and planning.

On many construction and demolition sites, the roles of materials handling and logistics are carried out by people without waste training. By passing on skills in reducing waste, we will enable individuals to participate in more sustainable waste management in construction.

At S Walsh we will process all of your construction & demolition (C&D) waste materials. Using our experience in the industry, we understand which materials are generated, the scale of the issue and how it can be tackled. We can provide skips for segregation on-site or, if there is a lack of space, we can segregate the waste at our offsite facilities.

Dedicated to comprehensive waste management services, we will accept all construction and demolition waste, including wood, plasterboard, paper, card, plastics, metals, glass, lights, concrete, miscellaneous hardcore, soil and spoil arisings, and contaminated material, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

We can provide varying scales of waste and recycling containers, skips and roll-on/roll-offs to satisfy your site requirements. The waste material is processed at our facilities and, wherever possible, returned directly to be utilised in the construction or manufacturing sectors.
