Our credentials

RTS Waste is a waste management company that is dedicated to providing the highest standards of service to its clients. We take pride in our commitment to excellence, which is reflected in our accreditation with PAS 402 and independent verification by a UKAS inspector.

PAS 402

PAS 402 is a prestigious accreditation that recognises the ability of a waste management company to meet the highest environmental, social, and economic standards. The certification process is rigorous, and it requires companies to demonstrate their ability to manage waste responsibly, minimise waste sent to landfill, and maximise the recovery of resources.

UKAS Verified

Moreover, we’re UKAS verified – this adds another layer of credibility to our achievements. UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service) is the sole national accreditation body recognised by the UK government to assess the competence of organisations that provide certification, testing, inspection, and calibration services. Therefore, achieving independent verification from a UKAS inspector is a significant achievement that attests to our high standards of performance and expertise.

In summary, achieving accreditation with PAS 402 and independent verification from a UKAS inspector are important milestones for RTS Waste, as they demonstrate our commitment to excellence, high-quality performance, and expertise in waste management. We take pride in these achievements and strive to maintain and improve our standards continuously.

Embracing The Future of Waste Recycling & Recovery

At RTS Waste, we’re constantly researching and adopting best practices for quality and environmental performance, ensuring that we remain at the forefront of our industry.

A Pioneering Material Recovery Facility

The potential for artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics in waste recycling and recovery is vast and exciting, and we at RTS Waste are dedicated to staying at the forefront of these developments to provide our clients with the most advanced and effective waste management solutions.

AI is a pioneering way to make the advancements of technology work better for us in material recovery solutions. Here’s how we plan to incorporate AI into our process to improve quality and environmental performance for RTS Waste.

AI Systems

AI systems and robotics have the potential to revolutionise waste recycling and recovery processes. For example, AI-powered robots can be used to sort waste materials quickly and efficiently, reducing the need for manual labour and increasing the accuracy of sorting. Advanced AI algorithms can be used to optimise waste collection routes and schedules, reducing fuel consumption and carbon emissions.

Moreover, AI-based waste management systems can track and analyse waste data, identifying patterns and trends that can inform waste reduction strategies. This data can also be used to monitor waste disposal practices and ensure better compliance with environmental regulations.

In addition, AI systems can be integrated with waste-to-energy plants, helping to improve the efficiency of the conversion process, reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills, and overall, streamline and improve the output of our material recovery facility.
