How to Dispose of Bricks, Soil & Rubble


Gone are the days when bricks, soil and rubble left over from a major building or gardening project could just be dumped into landfill and be done with. Quite apart from all the ethical concerns, since 1996 a landfill tax has been in place, which from April 2021 will increase to £96.70 per tonne. At CSH Environmental, we agree that everything should be done to encourage individuals and businesses to recycle where possible and in any case to dispose of all waste with the utmost regard for the environment. But that does beg the question: what do you do with them…

The History of Recycling


“The transformation of waste is perhaps the oldest preoccupation of man.” Patti Smith Patti Smith might have been being a bit optimistic about recycling’s history when she included this line in her poem/song ‘High on Rebellion’, but she was right in one respect, and that is that recycling in one form or another has a much longer history than we might imagine.

Throwing away what could be used again wasn’t just wasteful, it…

But perhaps the most important thing to find out is what the…

Business waste is any waste that’s produced from a commercial organisation. All waste generated by paid workers will fall into the category of business waste.
