If you can answer yes, then North West Waste Consultants wants to help solve a problem that we all suffer with; irregular and insufficient bin collections.
Waste management agency Business Waste says 54% of the public, struggling with collection times and space in their normal household bins, would prefer their council taxes to pay for more frequent bin collections.
When our local Council reduced the number of collections for general household waste to two weekly collections it became evident there was a need for a bin bag collection service.
Despite residents’ best efforts to cut back and recycle as much as possible, households are still struggling. Bins are consistently overflowing, or additional bin bags are being placed at the side. This results in vermin such as maggots, flies and potentially rats … this causes some horrific odours that you or your neighbours wouldn’t appreciate, notwithstanding the risk of contamination and disease.
Although we are fully supportive of our local councils who have their hands tied with central government demands, that does not help the situation that virtually every householder finds themselves in.
We are a highly professional and environmentally-friendly company, covering a wide range of different areas, and we’re here to help you dispose of your extra waste at a sensible cost.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, time to put on your Christmas jumpers, fill your face with mince pies and watch the Home Alone movies for only the 50th time. Christmas however is not as wonderful for landfill sites as we include tinsel, wrapping paper, toy packaging and Christmas cards to the long list of items we throw away. Landfill sites across the UK receive the following for Christmas every year:
Whilst the amount of Christmas waste itself is shocking there are simple things every household can do to minimise this waste.
One of the most common mistakes recyclers find in the General Waste Bins during this time of year is gift wrap. However, most Christmas wrapping papers are not recyclable, especially if they are made of foil or metallic materials.
Why not try some recycled brown wrapping paper to make your gifts environmentally friendly? Other ‘green’ wrapping paper substitutes include the Sunday comics or the sports section of your newspaper.
Don’t forget about the box
Online shopping is growing every year and so is the number of boxes we use for these items. Most cardboard boxes are high-value recyclables, but the sheer volume of them means they often overflow the recycling bins and end up in the trash.
If you receive gifts by mail this year, break down the cardboard boxes to save space and make sure they end up in the recycling pile.
Instead of throwing all your potato peelings, and leftover vegetables in the bin, put them to good use and turn them into compost. It’s great for your garden and even better for the environment. Egg boxes, newspapers, tea bags, fruit scraps and veggie peelings can all be composted. Composting can remove 20-50% from your household waste stream, reducing the burden on landfills while replenishing your lawn, trees, houseplants, or garden for free.
Make your own
Get creative and give someone a one of a kind gift. Are you a keen cook? Cakes, jams and chutneys can make useful and thoughtful presents, and cut down on food waste.
Homemade Christmas gifts like goodies, bread or Christmas ornaments and decorations made of materials from around your home make meaningful and resourceful gifts.

Unlike hundreds of years ago, most of our waste increasingly belongs in the biodegradable category. This means simple waste management techniques such as burying and burning aren’t as effective any more. Here’s a few reasons why waste management is very important today…
Waste management can be profitable
Recycling and waste management can lead to bigger profits for companies – especially in the food industry. Simply by planning and portioning ingredients, as well as keeping an efficient supply chain, companies such as restaurants, supermarkets and food factories can boost profits by as much as 10%. This also applies to other industries such as construction – where tightening up stock control can save on waste and increase profits.
Boost company reputation
Efficient waste management and recycling can boost your reputation in your industry. Potential and existing customers will see you as a responsible and sustainable company that cares about the environment, the future and the population.
It preserves the environment
Unfortunately we can’t simply burn all waste we come across. This is because it releases toxins, pollutes the air and can even contribute towards the destruction of the ozone layer. Some waste is hazardous and may cause harm to the environment. This includes plants, animals and habitats. Toxic materials can kill off living things and pollute bodies of water such as lakes and rivers.
Reduces production costs
An incredible benefit of waste management is it can cut overall production costs in the long run. Recycling helps to conserve natural resources such as glass, plastic, paper and oil. Reusing these materials will place less strain on our natural resources and lower the cost of production.
Increases safety in the workplace and community
Waste materials can be harmful to your workers, as well as the surrounding environment. It can save your employees and visitors from illness and accidents at work. This could include anything from putting your rubbish in the bin to sorting out waste into the correct recycling containers.
Adheres to CO2 targets
Carbon Reduction Commitment targets can be set by local authorities, designed to reduce CO2 emissions. The 2008 Climate Change Act in the UK is one of the world’s first legal climate change initiatives. The idea is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 80% between the years 1990 and 2050. Effective waste management can cover this act, so your company will be up to date with all legal requirements regarding waste.
