Waste Management Policy

Introduction

At Pure Klass Cleaning, we are committed to environmental stewardship and sustainable practices. Our Waste Management Policy is designed to minimise waste, promote recycling, and ensure the responsible disposal of waste materials at any of the Student Accommodation sites we are working in.

Policy Statement

We pledge to manage waste generated from our cleaning services at the University campuses in accordance with environmental regulations and best practices. Our goal is to reduce the environmental impact of our operations and support the universities’ sustainability objectives.

Policy Objectives

  • Compliance: Adhere to all legal requirements for waste management, including the Duty of Care under Environmental Protection legislation.

  • Waste Hierarchy: Implement a waste hierarchical approach to reduce, reuse, recycle, and recover waste products, prioritising these over landfill disposal.

  • Minimisation: Strive to minimise waste generation at the source and facilitate repair, reuse, and recycling where cost-effective.

  • Training: Provide comprehensive training for staff on waste management issues and procedures.

  • Awareness: Promote environmental awareness among staff to encourage waste minimisation and recycling.

  • Safe Handling: Ensure the safe handling and storage of waste at all locations.

  • Best Practices: Promote industry waste management best practices and continuous improvement.
