Asbestos and other hazardous wastes (including: paint, tyres, gas bottles, fridges, freezers, TVs, fluorescent tubes, light bulbs and vehicle batteries) cannot be placed in standard skips and must be disposed of as Hazardous Waste. CES are fully equipped to deal with all your disposal needs, from the collection of one bag to multiple skips. Our head office operates a Licensed Asbestos Transfer Station allowing us to safely accept and dispose of all types of asbestos waste. We offer several different sized enclosed skips specifically for Asbestos Disposal and hazardous waste removal, with an easy booking process and a fast, reliable service.

All staff employed by City Environmental Services (UK) Ltd are trained to the highest standards in the industry by a UKATA approved training provider.
City Environmental Services staff are PTS (personal track safety) trained allowing them to work safely on UK railways.
Personal track safety (PTS) is a qualification which every worker has to have before being allowed to work on or near any line owned or managed by Network Rail.
It is designed to help workers to understand the systems that keep them safe.
The main risks of working on the railway are:
being hit by a train, on-track plant, or a road-rail vehicle
electrocution from an overhead power line or a conductor rail
trips and falls.
PTS training aims to make rail workers aware of their surroundings at all times on the railway, so they stay safe.
City Environmental Services (UK) Ltd – Surveying Division offer a range of services to help our clients comply with The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.
If you own or have responsibility for a non-domestic property (such as a shop, office or industrial property) anywhere in the UK, built pre-2000, then you are required to have an asbestos management survey in place at all times. You will also be required to have a Refurbishment and Demolition Survey if you plan to undertake refurbishment or demolition works on a building constructed pre-2000.
These are legislative requirements as laid down and monitored by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and failure to comply can lead to hefty fines and prosecution. On 29th January 2010 the HSE released HSG 264 Asbestos: The Survey Guide. This document expands on and replaces MDHS 100. The document is aimed at those conducting surveys, those who commission surveys and those with specific responsibilities for managing asbestos in accordance with Control of Asbestos Regulations (CAR) 2012.
