It’s a new year, which means a fresh start for many businesses. To help you start your year right we have come up with a few top tips for your waste management, helping you to reduce your carbon footprint and save you money!
1. Waste oil re-refined
Most waste oil service providers will process the waste oil they collect into an industrial fuel for burning, producing high levels of CO2. At Slicker Recycling, however, most of the waste oil we collect is sent to our joint venture re-refinery where it is processed back into a product which can then be used in the production of new lubricating oil. By using Slicker as your waste oil provider, you will be contributing to the circular economy and significantly reducing your carbon footprint.
2. Segregate and save!
Not only is waste segregation legally required for businesses to do, and thus saving on potential fines, segregated waste is often cheaper to dispose of. For example, the cost to dispose of a dry mixed recycling bin can be over 50% cheaper to collect than a general waste bin. For more information on how we can help you segregate and save contact our expert team.
3. Save money and hassle by consolidating your waste suppliers.
Why manage multiple suppliers for you waste when all your waste needs can be managed through one service provider? You can save a lot of time, hassle, and money by consolidating all your waste service needs under our comprehensive Slicker service. We offer a wide range of services, covering hazardous and non-hazardous waste. See our Total Waste Management page for more information…
4. When it comes to drains and interceptors, prevention is better than the cure.
By ensuring your on-site drains and interceptors are maintained regularly you could potentially save a lot of money not needing emergency call outs for blockages and flooding, not to mention minimising disruption to your business. We offer scheduled or on-demand drainage and interceptor services so you can rest assured.
