Ward SP calls for sustainable demolition recycling
Ward Special Projects (SP), part of Ward, the Derbyshire-based metal and waste recycling specialist, has urged the demolition industry to take a sustainable approach in its waste management and recycling processes.
David Ward Jnr, who heads up Ward SP, said: “In the UK, the construction and demolition sector is the largest single contributor of waste materials annually, responsible for generating an estimated 120 million tonnes of waste every year, that’s approximately one third of the total waste in the UK.”
As a major generator, consumer and producer of waste, the construction and demolition industry is under pressure to find ways of incorporating sustainable waste management into demolition processes to meet environmental targets. That’s why Ward SP provides a full-service waste management partnership with demolition clients large and small.
Ward SP provides a full-service waste management service for demolition clients of all sizes and is currently involved in a project removing around 1,000 tonnes of asbestos per week from the decommissioned cooling towers at Ironbridge Power Station in Shropshire.
Ward added: “We invest millions of pounds annually in new equipment and technology to support the needs of our demolition clients aiming to make the storage, segregation and safe removal of waste as efficient as it can be to maximise recycling capability and safely disposing of or treating any hazardous waste.”
