When receiving your waste we ensure it goes to the correct place. We have local recycling and reuse centres whom we trust to guarantee everything is either passed on to someone who can find use of your items or sent for recycle to prevent your plastics going to landfills
A Clean earth have permits with Hertfordshire council to allow us to take your waste to the right place. This means we have access to local recycling centres to dispose of all your waste correctly and gives us certainty that all waste we deliver goes to where it should and not added to the overflowing landfills.
A lot of waste that is collected generally consists of unwanted or unused children toys such as bikes, playsets, various types of balls and sports equipment.
Here at A Clean Earth we recognise that not all items are unwanted but just unused. Most, if not all old toys being thrown out are still able to be re used.
As everybody knows the UK government have been cutting school funding, this is resulting in schools not being able to buy new equipment for the younger generations.
To try and help this problem we try to donate every thing we believe can be reused to our local schools.
After finding out how appreciative and glad the receiving school was of our first donation we have pushed people not to just throw toys in the bin and to think of the people who could re use them.
Frooms are a local waste management company who are able to handle and and dispose of Fridges and freezers - Fridge freezers contain harmful CFC gases that, if not correctly disposed of, can drastically damage and impact the environment.
At Frooms, fridges and freezers are shredded in a confined nitrogen environment. Shredding them in a confined nitrogen environment causes them to release the blowing agent gases that were previously trapped in the insulating foam.
The CFCs are then split from the nitrogen by chilling the environment to –160 degrees Celsius, this causes the CFCs to liquefy so that they can then be eliminated by high-temperature burning after being separated from nitrogen.
