Waste Management

Betts Envirometal recognises the ever-increasing restrictions, rules and bureaucracy governing the production, transportation and treatment of wastes that have increased at an unprecedented and overbearing rate.

The impact of further legislation is costly and time consuming and may have drawn your management away from its primary objectives. Legislation has placed the onus upon the waste producer to ensure their wastes are dealt with correctly. These rules and regulations are bound to only get tougher as time goes by and as the nation becomes more efficient at dealing with the wide variety of waste types.

We hold the most comprehensive and up to date treatment licenses for the processing of “special” and “controlled” wastes and are capable of processing almost any type of special or controlled waste from any industry at competitive prices. We have a strong emphasis on recycling and wherever possible we recycle the waste products we collect.  

As part of the Stephen Betts Group, we have access to state-of-the-art smelting, refining and assaying capabilities, and consequently have particular expertise in the recovery of precious metals from waste streams, although we are able to help with all your waste management needs.

Our British factories, storage facilities, specialist transport fleet, comprehensive licenses, exemplary Health & Safety records and long history of integrity and expertise make us ideally suited to handle your waste management requirements.
