How will the challenges faced by the waste industry last year affect haulage companies? Where some see an obstacle, others see an opportunity worth taking advantage of. It is a downright ideal situation for hauliers who choose to obtain a waste transport permit. Why? We invite you to read the article.
Waste El Dorado in the Islands
The UK is facing a problem of huge amounts of electro-waste. Islanders produce a lot of this waste and the forecasts do not look promising. If the trend continues, the British will take the infamous first place as those who produce the most WEEE waste in the world. Hence the government's idea of better recycling methods and encouragement to reuse old electronics. So that less rubbish ends up in landfill and more is recycled in an environmentally safe way. We have written more on this topic HERE. Where is the place for waste carriers in all this? Such large quantities of such materials obviously need to be transported to a recovery facility, if not in England then outside England. However, it should be remembered that such transport requires a permit. Contact us and we will take care of everything comprehensively.
The plastic revolution
Last November, the European Union decided to ban the export of plastic waste to non-OECD countries. This is all in order not to damage the environment in third countries, where waste often ends up in landfills. The ban will apply unless the countries in question meet strict environmental conditions regarding recycling. This is an excellent opportunity for waste hauliers or companies that are just thinking about transporting waste. Since producers will have to look for a market for their waste in other European countries, there will be an increased demand for transport services. It is therefore advisable to obtain the relevant waste transport permit in advance.
Waste transport permit in German
With the start of the year, our western neighbours introduced a CO2 tax on waste incineration. This is intended to encourage better waste sorting and increased recycling rates. This will undoubtedly have a significant impact on the waste management market, which could lead to increased exports of secondary fuels from Germany and changes in waste streams going to other European countries. In turn, this opens up new opportunities for transport companies. Apply to us if you want to obtain a waste transport permit in Germany or another EU country and start making money.
