  • Man who ran illegal waste site at Waterbeach given a suspended sentence

    The site in Waterbeach began as a base for skip hire services. It then became an unlicensed waste disposal site resulting in tonnes of waste been illegally dumped. The man held responsible was ordered to pay £5,600 in costs and given a suspended sentence.

    Magistrates were told that mixed commercial and construction/demolition waste was illegally stored at a site in the village despite advice given. Having ignored warnings from Environment Agency officers, two stop notices were placed on the company but Daniel Lee Crockwell; aged 35 still continued with his actions.

    He agreed to clear the site by February 16, 2017 but failed to do so and eventually the landowners took control of the site and cleared it themselves. Eventually Crockwell was sentenced to four months in prison suspended for two years.

  • Andrew Wiltshire on Recycling

    Andrew Wiltshire, Conservative spokesman for Norwich South recently stated that “Recycling rates have fallen in the city; we believe that not enough is being done to discourage single use plastics and deal with the pollution that is damaging Norwich’s air quality. We will work to better protect our environment and improve air quality.”

    In response to Andrew’s statement AKS would like to say:
    In the last 12 months we have invested over 420k in to newer vehicles with better MPG and lower emissions.

    We have a new 560k recycling system arriving in the next month

    By February 2019 we will have invested a further £1.3m in equipment and trucks.

    Most importantly we now recycle 100% of all waste.

  • Evidence proves it pays to recycle

    Since 2002, AKS Skip Hire has promoted the virtues of responsible recycling as a means of achieving a whole host of objectives, from keeping space in landfills to helping the environment. What is less well known is that recycling can often prove highly profitable for a whole host of reasons. In the UK, households and businesses throw out vast quantities of potentially useful material every year.

    Plastics, cardboard, metals, soils, rubble, wood and other every throwaway objects all contain valuable components that can be reused in numerous applications. However, the recent upsurge in electrical goods in the past 20 years means that vast amounts of materials and precious metals are discarded needlessly every year, as individuals and households throw away old, outdated electrical products and buy the very latest technical items and devices.

    Whilst consumerism has always seen this type of behaviour, the mechanics of items like iPods, iPads, lap tops and smart phones means that each discarded device contains at least some reusable material, and some of this has great value.

    One of the most successful expanding markets for dealing with hardware refuse is in precious metals, as a great degree of copper, palladium and silver, as well as reusable plastics, can often be recovered. However, by far and away the greatest profit is to be made through gold, once a key component of circuit boards in computers and other hardware.

    As these metals become less and less available (i.e. rarer) on the global market, and their value continues to rise, worn out household items like connectors, hard disk drives, mobile phones and even various types of plug are increasingly sought after as a means of recovering vast quantities of hard to find materials. As well as taking the time and effort to recycle properly, proactive households individuals can take these items to various waste management centres.

    As we have recently moved into an expanded and improved Transfer Station, AKS Skip Hire is in a position to recycle waste materials in higher volumes than ever before, and our aims are becoming ever more ambitious in this regard – last year our waste management centre recycled 85% of the material we received, and we aim to do even better in the coming years, helping the environment and recovering resources that are vital for businesses and consumers alike.

  • 100% Recycling Target Met by AKS Skip Hire

    As a responsible specialist in the waste and recycling industries, AKS Skip Hire understands just how important recycling is in preventing a build-up of waste materials in landfill sites not just in Norwich but throughout the UK. We are committed not just to providing great personal service but also to save time, running costs, resources and energy in the process.

    Since 2002, we have striven to improve our recycling services by bringing an affordable and convenient means of waste disposal to communities in Norwich, in addition to protecting the environment and saving landfill space, and we are now proud to announce that 100% of waste recovered in our service is recycled resulting in 0% of waste going to landfill!

    This includes everything from plastics to cardboard, metals, rubble, soils, wood and electrical goods, and we can also handle hazardous substances and building materials.
    85% of all refuse we deal with is recycled and the remaining 15% RDF (refuse derived fuel) are sent to power stations to be burned and used for energy.

    This means that all the waste that is recovered by AKS Skip Hire can be reused through numerous practical applications, saving time, reusing energy and keeping important materials in use.

    One of our most important recent innovations to help us on our way has been our relocation to a new Transfer Station and picking line with a bigger, better equipped site with which to carry out a whole host of refuse recovery and recycling operations. This has enabled us to meet even higher environmental targets whilst helping local homeowners, businesses and industries to improve their waste disposal systems.

    With a longstanding target having finally been met, we anticipate further improvements to our progressive waste disposal service in the future, and AKS Skip Hire eagerly looks forward to working with our customers and the Norfolk community to achieve our goals.
