In keeping with our environmental policy, CES Environmental is committed to reducing waste as a result of our operations by all possible means available in so far as practical. To this end we strive towards a to lead our industry in line with the latest waste management infrastructure regarding waste management systems on-site and towards a paperless environment within our offices in so far as reasonably practicable. All energy and material inputs, subsequent activities and project / operations management activities are carefully analysed to ensure we can reduce waste, recycle and reuse much of that which is produced from our activities.
CES Environmental waste management focuses on the three Rs of Reducing, Re-using and Recycling waste.
We acknowledge the following statutory obligations placed upon us by national and EU legislation / regulations and are firmly committed to achieving a high operational and management standard above that which is legally required where ever possible or practical.
The following is the desired hierarchy of waste management, starting with the most desirable option.
- Prevent waste in the first place by not producing it if possible
- If it cannot be avoided, try to minimise the volume produced
- Re-use waste materials to as great an extent as possible
- Recycle materials where feasible
- Recover energy from waste
- Disposal - the least preferred.
CES Environmental works closely with our suppliers and community stakeholders in trying to achieve the best possible solution to waste elimination. As a result much of our by-product is re-usable or returned to our customers / licensed waste management suppliers.
Only after all other options have been explored is waste produced at CES Environmental sent to landfill.
