Collecting Domestic AHP Waste
While Knowaste is a waste treatment company, our team has over half a century of collective experience in waste hauling and is able to bring its experience to bear in helping you to address your collection and infrastructure questions,while also developing good practice through trials and roll-out of kerbside services. We work in collaboration with all public sector waste partners to help develop cost effective and sustainable solutions.
One such sustainable solution could be the ‘survival bag’. It is made from a heavier gauge material than that used in the commercial sector (where it is commonly known as a ‘tiger bag’ thanks to its yellow body and black stripes). It can be used discreetly by residents for sorting their AHP waste within existing residual or recycling collections, making it a cost-effective option
The Department of Communities and Local Government recently announced a new fund of up to £250million to be made available to support English councils to deliver enhanced household waste and recycling services that improve the environment.
This Weekly Collections Support Scheme will both support weekly collections and enable councils to invest in schemes and projects that encourage recycling. If you have made a bid to introduce or trial nappy/diaper and other absorbent hygiene products recycling please contact the Business Development department should you require assistance.
