Paint Disposal in London

Whilst paint is not the most common of waste streams, it is one that throws up a lot of important considerations for whoever is trying to dispose of it. Good Waste Guide

The most important point for clients is that they can work with a reliable and trustworthy partner who aims to recover as much of the paint as possible, making the right and sustainable decision at every opportunity.

Being an environmentally friendly waste company has allowed us to become this for our clients, we have also become known as the UK’s most environmentally friendly choice for disposals. We see waste as an asset and a resource, even for paint, and so we make the process of paint disposal one that is stress and hassle-free with a resourceful outcome.

The key points about Paint Disposal at Enviro Waste:

  • 100% energy recovery
  • 100% reused, contributing to our circular economy model
  • 0% paint to landfill!
  • Paint is recovered for energy in Leeds

Using EfW to help the environment

Enviro Waste opts to use an energy-from-waste process whereby the waste is heated to extreme temperatures (usually around 850℃) in a special oven. The paint will be mixed with other combustible wastes that are not recyclable or reusable. As a result of burning the waste, steam is produced and used to spin a turbine, thereby generating energy or heat for local homes.

Important: We only work with incineration companies who operate strict APC (air pollution control) systems, so that our waste is not contributing to air issues.

I found Enviro Waste with an online search. I do not live in the area so needed a company who would provide a service quickly & efficiently, that is what I got. Helpful & understanding call handling and a team of two men who removed the waste quickly with good manners & appearance. I will highly recommend the company to anyone.
