Our Waste Management Services Throughout COVID-19

By News

Here at KCM Waste Management, we have been able to remain open throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, including all national lockdowns and local government tiers.

We are, as always, prioritising the health and safety of both our staff and customers.

Due to this, we have adapted all of our services to now be able to provide contactless deliveries and collections.

We have ensured our services remain fully functional for both domestic and commercial customers, things have been disrupted enough this year and we wanted to ensure your waste disposal was not one of them.

As with all businesses, our staff are required to follow strict COVID-19 measures and will not be attending work if they or members of their household are showing any symptoms.

We are continuously following all government protocols as and when they are updated, all customers would be notified if their service were ever to come into disruption.

My Local Council Tip is Closed, Where Can I Dispose of My Waste?

We have seen many local council tips close due to staff shortages, social distancing, and the unprecedented volume of people wanting to dispose of their household waste.

During this time, our own tipping site based on Ginhouse Lane in Rotherham has remained open for the disposing of all household waste items. If you would like a quote for tipping at our site, or to check whether we can accept your items, please give us a call on 01709 361 144.

How We Are Supporting Local Businesses

Our Trade Waste is still very much up and running for all businesses which are able to continue throughout lockdown. If you have unfortunately been forced to close down, just let us know. We can pop your service on hold and even remove your bins so that you don’t have to worry about theft or vandalism.

How We Are Supporting People in the Office

During these new and changing times, we are finding hazardous waste streams such as PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) becoming more and more common within normal business environments, outside of healthcare settings such as hospitals and care homes.

We would recommend providing extra, separate bins for your staff to dispose of all PPE. And anything additional which could also have been contaminated such as disposable cutlery and food packaging. These should be regularly emptied to prevent build up and can be collected by our ‘Man in a Van’ service. This would involve visiting your site independently to collect your hazardous waste and bring it back to our site to be disposed of both safely and legally.

How We Are Supporting People Working from Home

Working from home has become the new normal during 2020 and along with this comes new practices and laws that you need to be aware of.

The most common service currently requested by staff members working from home is confidential waste disposal. Confidential waste is any document that holds any private information about either an individual, supplier, customer, employee, or business.

By law, you are legally required to dispose of this separately from other waste and following the UK General Data Protection Act 2018. This ensures all confidential waste is disposed of by a responsible person or company to the BS EN 15713:2009 standard.

KCM provides a convenient and cost-friendly confidential waste disposal service direct to your door. If you produce any of the below list, you need to have this disposed of via a licensed waste company.

  • Invoices, order forms, statements, and banking details
  • Letters, emails, and memos
  • Employee and payroll information
  • Customer and supplier information
  • Financial data and supplier information
  • Medical information
  • Company information

How We Are Supporting Homeowners

As always, our expert Skip Hire service has been running continuously throughout all COVID-19 regulations and remains to do so.

No matter what your project, we can provide contactless delivery on a wide range of skips to dispose of all waste streams. We provide nationwide skip hire so no matter where your project is, KCM can provide the same reliable skip hire up and down the country.

If you would like a no-obligation quote, call us on 01709 361 144 and we would be happy to help.

What Our Customers Think to Our Service During COVID-19

“KCM were brilliant! We ordered a skip online & chose the delivery date. I was kept updated throughout on my order, delivery, pick up etc. Not to mention, their skip prices are very reasonable. Will deffo be using these in future if we ever need a skip again & will recommend to all my friends! Thank you :)” – Bethany

“Brilliant! I booked online which was simple, quick and easy! It arrived bang on time, we filled it sooner than expected so it was ready for collection before the ordered collection day, so gave them a call and they collected it the same day! So quick and easy! Also liked how I got txt updates to let me know when the driver was on his way! Great service! Would recommend!” – Kerry

“I’ve used KCM twice now and both times they were excellent. Arrived when they said, delivered skips fully socially distanced. And when I called to arrange pick up they came the same day on one occasion and the next day on the other. Great service and very friendly staff.” – Donna

Site Clearance at BizSpace

By News

Today at KCM we have been out doing a site clearance for BizSpace Doncaster.

The bins on this particular site are kept in a bin store, however, as you can see this isn’t always enough to keep your bins safe and tidy!

In order to stop other people tampering with (or adding to!) your waste, we would recommend a variety of precautions, whichever is best suited to you or your business’s needs. The simplest answer to this problem would be to add a roof to your bin safe, meaning only you can access your waste. This could also be achieved by adding a lock on either the door or the roof.

Another solution to this problem would be to have your bins emptied more frequently – you could even opt for smaller bins but more frequent collections!

If you do find yourself in this predicament with disrupted waste, or you just have excess waste which needs disposing of, don’t hesitate to get in touch with the team here at KCM on 01709 361 144.

We offer a wide range of waste solutions and our site clearance team can have this issue sorted for you efficiently and responsibly.

We also offer a one stop shop for all your trade waste needs, including bin hire and collections, you can read all about that service here and can contact our Trade Waste Team on 01709 794 888 or at bins@kcmwaste.com
