Waste Hierarchy in Durham & Washington

Years of experience working in waste disposal

As experts in the waste disposal industry, we take our work and commitment to the wellbeing of the environment seriously. In light of this, we always adhere to the Waste Hierarchy regulations (2012) framework. This outlines the process that is required in order for us to carry out the most efficient waste management services throughout Durham and Washington. Furthermore, this includes the collection, transportation, recovery and disposal of the waste.  Also, adhering to these regulations gives you peace of mind knowing that we are disposing of all your materials in the correct manner.  We aim to recycle as much as possible and this, in turn, helps the environment. So if you are needing waste hierarchy in Durham & Washington, look no further.

Please find below a full explanation of the Waste Hierarchy and also what it entails.


Although we cannot physically have an impact on the amount of waste our clients produce, we can and do liaise with them on a regular basis to offer them advice and guidance on how they can reduce their waste.

We achieve this by reviewing individual working practices and working alongside them to implement waste minimisation strategies.


An efficient waste disposal method that we implement ourselves is the reclamation of materials. This can include anything from unwanted rubble and hardcore to excess wood, bricks or concrete. Our trained experts will adhere to a strict framework. This is done in order to trace the origin of the material/product, to know it is safe to be recycled, rather than disposed of.

Communication was spot on throughout, the receptionists were lovely to speak with and were very knowledgeable on what size skip I needed and logistics.I used a 3 yard domestic skip for a garden project and it was perfectly fit for purpose. Arrived and was taken away first thing on both specified days - driver was lovely too.Will definitely use again, thank you!

Have used Ward Bros on a number of occasions over the last year. They have always been friendly, professional and competitively priced. The skip is placed on the spot I want, is always on time and taken away when arranged.I'll not be using anyone else and will highly recommend them to anyone.

Booked a skip a week in advance of day needed, lady I spoke to was very helpful and offered a very competitive price. On day skip was required it arrived on time with a very friendly and knowledgeable driver. Called when skip was ready for collection and it was picked up same day. This is not the first time we have used ward bros, won’t be last and highly recommend them.

John Graham
First time I’ve used this company for skip hire. Are they good? NO, they’re excellent!! Cost was comparable with others offering this service but customer care was outstanding. Skip arrived 10 minutes into the two hour window I was given and collection was equally good. Drivers were pleasant and efficient taking only minutes to leave/pickup the skip. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend

Waste management & the waste hierarchy

Years of experience working in waste disposal


Recycling waste is a sustainable way to help put perfectly reusable materials back into the material supply chain. A surprisingly large amount of products and materials can be reused, and at Ward Brothers we aim to recycle as much of your waste as possible, helping you lower your carbon footprint in a cost-effective way.


In the most technical stage of the process, we will transform your unwanted waste into energy. This process includes incineration with energy recovery and gasification to produce energy in the form of power, heat and fuel. We can discuss these options with you in further detail, and how you can recover energy from your waste.


If the material cannot be recycled and needs to be completely disposed of, we come to this as a last resort.

A typical example of this being the disposal of asbestos. As a hazardous material, asbestos will always require landfill and special chemical treatment.
