amongst its members so that they may optimise their performance.
Duty of Care ..
When it comes to waste disposal it is essential that the producer of the waste manages manages to correct collection, transport and disposal of what is classified as 'controlled Waste'. This includes the segragation of waste streams in proper containers, transport by registered waste carriers and disposal at registered sites certified to deal with that type of waste.

The obligation is on the waste producer to ensure that the company that deals with their waste is properly certified.

Documentation should be kept to provide a paper trail for audit bythe Environment Agency should it ever be required.

All IWSA members are registered waste carriers and documentation is provided free of charge to comply with the legislation.
Peace of mind ..
All IWSA members carry out CRB (or Access NI in Northern Ireland) checks on all staff to ensure they are safe to work in sensitive areas
Peace of mind ..
Each member of the IWSA abides by strict codes of conduct that ensure that each member is an accredited organisation that is not only able to deliver the services that the customer requires but also that they are able to perform to a high standard to compete individually and confidently with the multi-national corporations.

Each member is continually vetted to ensure the standards are being met relating to their sales practices, installation of equipment, servicing, accounting and customer liaison and 100% compliance with Health & Safety and Environmental Legislation.

On time, every time ..
All IWSA members guarantee to be there when they say they will be there.

As is so often the reported case with some of the multi-national providers, services get missed.
IWSA members have a closer link to their business and to all their services and will carry out services on time, every time.
