The Project

We arrange a site visit to assess all the risks associated with the job and will supply you with our quotation, which will be very competitive.

Following acceptance of the quotation, we will issue with our Risk Assessment and Method Statement (RAMS) for approval. We confirm that the works will not compromise the BMS (Building Management System) or interrupt the running operation of your site.

Your approval of the RAMS will evidence your compliance to meet all the health and safety and legal criteria of the Environment Agency for the disposal of Hazardous Wastes.

Upon our arrival at site, Operatives will sign the RAMS to confirm that they are understood.

Safety aspects such as hazard signs and barriers will be erected to protect all third parties on site.

Our site foreman will oversee the operation, as detailed in your specific Method Statement,  and will work in tandem with your Site Management for the clearance project.

Upon completion of the works all areas will be left clean and tidy.


In accordance with legislative requirements all appropriate documentation will be issued to you for your Company records, including Waste Consignment Transfer Notes and a Certificate of Destruction, by approved waste disposal specialists, following incineration.
