Company information Acumen Waste Services
AWS specialise in handling problematical and hazardous wastes.
Our experienced technical teams can organise the collection and disposal of hazardous and non-hazardous waste in accordance with the ever changing legislative and environmental standards applicable in the UK.
AWS is a leading independent company in this difficult market.
Wastes can be a problem to the producers for a variety of reasons. These can vary from the wastes location, physical properties and handling characteristics to the available methods of treatment, recycling or disposal.
AWS specialise in designing bespoke waste solutions that are both technically advanced and legally compliant and give the customer the peace of mind that their wastes are being handled in a safe and cost effective manner.
Asbestos waste is .Hazardous Waste. when it contains more than 0.1% asbestos and all asbestos waste is subject to Schedule 2 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2006 and most waste is subject to the Carriage of Dangerous Goods (etc) Regulations 2004 (CDG).
AWS are one of the countries leading companies in transporting and disposing of asbestos wastes. Our dedicated fleet of RORO vehicles coupled with our technical expertise and buying power allows us to provide the most cost effective, legally compliant solution to our customers.
We collect waste oil in bulk using our specialist fleet of tankers and then process the oil at our facility in Wolverhampton, where we produce Processed Fuel Oil for sale back into the supply chain. The facility adheres strictly to the PFO Protocol.
We also collect and process other .Garage Wastes. such as used filters, antifreeze and batteries.
Our .AcuBin. service provides a complete package for the safe storage, transport and processing of contaminated absorbents, rags and wipes, PPE, booms and mats. Our 1100 litre or 240 litre wheelie bins are delivered to site and then exchanged when full.
Non-hazardous waste is waste which does NOT feature on the list of hazardous waste in the European Waste Catalogue.
Safe, legal handling of waste can be a difficult subject to understand. Consequently AWS take great care to comply with all relevant legislation and to ensure that by our on line reporting your company is keeping track of its waste and its effect on the environment.
All the waste disposal and recycling sites we use are audited to ensure they are licensed and maintained within strict environmental controls, providing only the highest standards of treatment, recycling and disposal.
AWS can provide all the waste management services you need - trade waste, skip, roll on/off, mobile and on-site static compaction together with waste minimisation and recycling programmes. A sophisticated on line reporting service is provided via a password protected area on our web site and all services are delivered promptly, professionally and cost efficiently, both locally and nationally.
Drums & Packaged Waste
AWS services range from the one-off removal of laboratory materials, providing listing and labelling services to regular consignments of 205 litre drums and 1000 litre intermediate bulk containers.
Our expert chemists can assess your packaged waste, providing testing and analysis services when necessary and then undertaking any repackaging and labelling that may be required to ensure that the waste is removed in the safest most cost effective manner.
Liquid waste can undergo various treatments and processes in order to ensure safe disposal, recovery or recycling. Whatever the required process, AWS can provide solutions designed to give you total peace of mind. Treatments include:
. Physico chemical treatment involving neutralisation, solid elimination and discharge to sewer
. Composting of organic wastes (see below)
. Incineration of highly toxic or non treatable wastes
. Treatment and blending to make substitute fuels
. Biological treatment
