How To Deal With Waste In An Emergency

Are you experiencing a sudden surge in unplanned waste? Maybe you’re having emergency waste disposal problems?

Whether you’re trying to cope with fire damage, or you desperately need fly tipping removal, find out more about how to deal with waste in an emergency with our waste disposal solutions.

Fire Damage

Fires, especially large-scale fires, can leave behind a significant amount of waste. The after-effects can take a long time to wear off, particularly if walls are smoke-damaged, ceilings have fallen in, or products in a commercial building have been spoiled beyond repair.

Biffa can help your fire damage clean-up. Using the most up-to-date equipment, our team will clear your site of fire damage waste. They will also remove any items that cannot be repaired, and any hazardous waste that is generated from the incident.

Don’t forget – our site clearance and removal service includes a nationwide recycling service for any materials that can be repurposed.

Fly Tipping Removal

There are safer and smarter ways of disposing waste than fly tipping.

If your commercial or personal land has ever been used as a dump for fly tipping, you’ll know how much damage it can cause. Not only does fly tipping look messy, but it can destroy wildlife habitats and pose contamination threats to the surrounding area.

If your land falls victim to this illegal dumping of waste, it’s important to deal with it as quickly and safely as possible, especially if it happens on your business plot. Our site clearance service is well versed in reviving sites after fly tipping has occurred, by clearing with safe and professional equipment, and doing what we can to bring the land back to a usable state.

Flood Damage

Waste disposal problems can also occur in the event of a flood.

If you’re concerned about how to deal with flood damage, our dedicated team can help. Like the aftermath of a fire, flood damage can cause devastation, with carpets spoiled, furniture ruined and hazardous electrical items posing a risk.

With the safe removal of water-damaged waste and other affected items, our team will make sure your home is cleared quickly and efficiently so you can get back to normal in no time at all.
