Pre-Treatment

On the 30th October 2007, the Pre-treatment requirements of the Landfill Regulations came into force which meant that waste cannot be disposed of to landfill unless it can be demonstrated to have undergone a treatment process.

In the majority of cases, it is likely that this will mean a reduction in weight and volume by segregating a proportion of the waste for recycling at source. For minimal volumes we also use transfer stations which sort residual waste on-site, prior to final disposal at landfill, reclaiming as much recyclable material as possible.

Fortress offers a variety of recycling services to help you conform to these new regulations, and you can see just how easy this can be done by looking at our recycling section. If you are already recycling with us, you are already conforming.
