With UK and EU-wide recycling targets becoming even tighter, compounded by China’s ban on taking the world’s plastic waste, a number of British councils are ramping up their waste processing, waste management and waste disposal processes. Following the Chinese ban in 2018, UK governments are mulling over options to reduce the mountains of refuse building up and British businesses might end up being charged a fee to cover the costs associated with recycling the plastic packaging they’ve created in a move to reduce rubbish.
For Waste Processing, Waste Management and Waste Disposal companies, this could well equate to increased business. As MRW reports, in December alone, a number of UK councils have issued tenders for waste and recycling contracts to the tune of £10m in total. Devon, Aberdeenshire, Nottingham and West Sussex are all looking for reliable, cost-effective service solutions to help them manage their various waste requirements.
Already supplying a number of Waste Processing, Management and Disposal organisations, as well as providing a full range of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), Gorilla Safety also offers two safety boot styles ideal for the waste industry.
1: The Rock Fall RF15 Shale – This is a particularly rugged S3 safety boot. As well as steel toecap and midsole protection, Shale is oil-resistant, slip-resistant, HI heat-resist and certified and provides CI cold insulation. With FORCE10 durability components, Shale can take a real beating in waste environments.
2: Rock Fall Rhodium RF250 – For hazardous waste locations, Rock Fall’s Rhodium provides the same S3 toecap, midsole and water protection, but as well as being non-metallic, the Rhodium protects the wearer with a chemical-resistant outsole and upper material.
3: Rock Fall Monzonite RF540 – This is a total protection safety boot meaning that workers across the waste management sector, not only enjoy toecap and midsole protection, but metatarsal protection too.
