Ukwslreact offers a 'fast and efficient solution'

Waste and recycling broker UK Waste Solutions Limited (UKWSL) is launching an emergency waste removal and clean-up service available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. 

 

The service, called Ukwslreact, will be split into two main divisions – both of which offer a four-hour response time.

  • • Emergency recycling and waste management services for peak demand waste collection, sewage spill clearance, emergency food waste collection, fly-tipping clearance, construction waste, property clearance, fire and flood waste removal and hazardous waste removal. 
  •  
  • • Emergency cleaning providing rapid intervention and extreme cleaning, flood and fire damage cleaning/drying, sewage site decontamination, graffiti removal, hygienic deep cleaning, biocontainment cleaning, after-builders cleaning and high-level access cleaning. 

Ukwslreact says it offers “a fast and efficient solution for government bodies, businesses and private individuals alike”.

 

Max Kanda, managing director, said: “We believe Ukwslreact offers an unrivalled service not only in terms of speed and efficiency but by adhering to the highest possible health and safety standards.”

 

 The Country and Land Business Association recently estimated the cost of cleaning-up unauthorised dumping of waste at between £100 million and £150 million each year and said local councils issued in the region of 56,000 fixed penalty notices for fly-tipping in 2016 alone. 

 

In November 2017, in its report Waste Crime – Britain’s Dirty Secret, the Environmental Services Association (ESA) – the body representing waste professionals – said waste crime remains a substantial threat to the legitimate waste sector.

 

It added that the resources available to tackle it are “coming under increasing pressure” and contended that cutting enforcement expenditure “seems a false economy”.
