Shipping recyclable waste materials

Exporting recyclable waste materials is an increasingly challenging issue in the current shipping climate. Here at Allseas Global, we have a dedicated division which is responsible for ensuring all recyclable waste goods are handled, managed and shipped correctly.

The process of exporting recyclables is governed by strict regulatory requirements, meaning large fines or the rejection of cargo if your shipment isn’t appropriately documented. We have a comprehensive understanding of the necessary compliance measures, working with the Environment Agency where required and adhering to international regulations to ensure the responsible exporting of waste & recycled materials.

We also work closely with our clients and the carriers to ensure the appropriate paperwork is in place. This may include Letters or Indemnity (LOI), Annex VII, MSDS, Certification, Inspection, Export & Import Licenses where required, and Proof of cargo weight are all in place or checked prior to acceptance.
