Island Deals with Problematic Waste 14 January 2004

The Department of Local Government and the Environment have appointed Cleanaway UK Limited to provide a collection and disposal service for problematic wastes arising on the Isle of Man.

The service will be available from 12th January 2004.

Although the Island’s Energy-from-Waste facility will be operational in 2004 there will still be certain problematic wastes that will not be acceptable for incineration. These will include a variety of difficult wastes generated from industry, retailers and the public which present special problems for environmentally sound disposal. They may include, for example, chemical wastes, batteries, fluorescent light tubes, hazardous household wastes etc.

Cleanaway are a leading UK waste management company and will bring a considerable amount of experience and expertise to the task including state-of-the-art treatment and disposal in England. They also have particular expertise in the transfrontier shipment regulations that apply to waste exports from the Island.

The services Cleanaway will provide include the identification, safe packaging and labelling, collection and movement to an appropriate waste management facility, with regular collections being scheduled throughout the year.

To make access to service information as easy as possible, Cleanaway have provided "iomwasteline" a dedicated contact system for the Isle of Man; details are as follows:

Telephone (0151) 348 5257
This gives direct access to Cleanaway’s staff who can give advice and information on the new problematic wastes service.
