Waste Material Inspection

Environmental doom and gloom is everywhere in the media, scaring us all into becoming more environmentally friendly in our daily actions. Although it might take a while before we can become a fully “green” planet, with the ongoing development in the waste material industry we are moving in the right direction. Nowadays because of this growing environmental consciousness, recyclable material has become a commodity that is in demand.
Recycling container and tiresMany years ago, our team at CWM Survey & Inspection foresaw this future market and as a result became the first company in Europe to specialise in waste material inspection and inspection of recyclable material.
Our inspectors have years of experience under their belt when it comes to waste materials, such as paper waste, plastics, rubber scrap and scrap metals, so they really know their area!

Waste paper

Waste paper is a diverse area, where the quantity of grades and paper types can be daunting. Paper can come with many properties, whether we are talking about scrap paper from mills or sorted office paper. Since paper has its own distinct features, much like our clients at CWM, waste paper also requires the individual approach.

Scrap metals

When it comes to metal, our experienced and specialised know how to handle metallic waste material which fall into both Ferro and the Non-Ferro scrap metal camp.

Rubber scrap

There is no such thing as only one type of rubber. For example, you can get butyl rubber inner tubes which are fresh from the recycling industry or crumb rubber from a processing plant. At CWM Survey & Inspections we have handled all types of rubber that have passed our way over the years.

Plastic waste

Like all the other waste material that comes into our hands, plastic is no different in its individual qualities. At CWM we have handled plastics in a variety of forms and grades, from PET and engineering plastics through to LDPE film and regrinds.
