2. SUPPLY OF SERVICES
2.1 Coastal Recycling shall:
(a) supply the Services in accordance with these Conditions and Good Operating Practice;
(b) comply with any special Site conditions and safe working procedures notified in advance in writing by the Customer and provided We have agreed, in writing, to these;
(c) transfer the Waste to the Treatment Facility set out in the Waste Transfer Note, which is based on the Waste Description given by You, and in accordance with the Duty of Care and Law.
2.2 Coastal Recycling may in its absolute discretion vary the Services, including the times or dates of performance of the Service, the replacement of Containers or substitution for a different Container (for example, a 6yrd Container instead of an 8yrd Container), as may be necessary due to its reasonable operational requirements and shall, where reasonably possible, give the Customer prior notice of such changes to the Services.
2.3 Time shall not be of the essence in the performance of any Service. In particular, Coastal Recycling may delay the delivery, collection or exchange of a Container.
2.4 If performance of the Services is prevented or delayed by any act or omission by the Customer or by Customer Default:
(a) Coastal Recycling shall not be liable for any Losses sustained or incurred by the Customer as a result of the act, omission or Customer Default;
(b) without limiting its other rights or remedies, Coastal Recycling may, in its absolute discretion, suspend its performance of the Services until the Customer has remedied the cause of the act, omission or Customer Default; and
(c) the Customer shall reimburse Coastal Recycling for any Losses incurred by Coastal Recycling as a result of the act, omission or Customer Default.
3. DELIVERY, SITING AND COLLECTION OF THE CONTAINER
3.1 Coastal Recycling shall deliver the Container to the Site.
3.2 The Customer shall grant such access to the Site as may be required by Coastal Recycling without notice (if necessary) to site, move, replace, exchange, collect or maintain the Container and to perform the Services. 3.3 The Customer shall ensure that there is suitable access and adequate facilities at the Site for manoeuvring the Service vehicle by reference to clause 3.5 (including having regard to the Guidance Leaflet on ‘Container size and suitability and Service vehicle dimensions and weight’) and that all persons acting for and on behalf of Coastal Recycling shall be safe at all times during their visit to the Site. 3.4 The driver of the Service vehicle may in his absolute discretion refuse to carry out any of the Services if he believes (i) that access to the Site or manoeuvring facilities are unsafe or likely to cause damage to the Service vehicle, the Site or any property on the Site or within its vicinity, or (ii) the Container is unsafe to Service (for example, over loaded or loaded so it cannot be transported safely without the risk of Waste not being contained, or containing Unacceptable Waste or Hazardous Waste), whereby in each case the Customer shall be liable for a Supplemental Charge for the Wasted Journey. 3.5 The Guidance Leaflet on ‘Container size and suitability and Service Vehicle dimensions and weight’ contains information about factors to consider when hiring and siting a Container. In particular:
(a) a Container (without and especially with Waste in it) is heavy and when placed or picked up has the potential to damage the ground on which it is sited;
(b) a Service Vehicle is large and heavy and requires minimum height and width clearances to reach the Container and to carry out a Service at the Site;
(c) The Customer must satisfy himself regarding the suitability of the ground over which the Service Vehicle will pass over to undertake the Service. In the majority of situations, a driveway or access way may not be designed to tolerate the weight of the Service Vehicle (for example, paving slabs may break, kerb stones may break, tarmac or other surfacing may dent and/or crack).
(d) a Service Vehicle may use extending legs at its rear to stabilise it when it delivers and collects a Container. Protective pads will be placed under those extendable legs, but they are a focus point for the weight of the Container and a lot of pressure is exerted on those pads at the ends of the extendable legs; 3 (e) a Container must be sited on a level, flat surface and requires a minimum of 1 metre clearance all around it and to be free from and clear of obstacles. (f) a Service Vehicle may have extendable lifting arms, which means the clearance height from any obstacles around the Container must be considered carefully by the Customer; (g) if We are exchanging a Container (swapping your used Container with an empty Container), then the Service Vehicle will need sufficient obstacle-free clearance and space to deliver the empty Container, pick up the used Container and, if appropriate, re-site the empty Container into the same location the used Container was previously sited; (h) a Service Vehicle needs adequate manoeuvrability clearance to carry out a Service. On a Service, the Container (if it is a skip) will rock when it is attached via chains to the Service Vehicle. This rocking is more prevalent when the skip has Waste in it (as it is heavier); (i) We are also often asked to site Containers in locations which will likely give rise to damage on siting (whether on delivery, exchange or collection (for example, over a wall, on a verge, near a tree). If We are asked to site a Container anywhere other than on a flat surface with the required clearances around and over it and via the access way to the Site, We can attempt this but it is at the Customer’s own risk, responsibility and liability (see limitations on liability in clause 9 and clause 10 on Indemnities).
3.6 For the avoidance of any doubt, if the driver of the Service Vehicle has not exercised his discretion in clause 3.4, that does not, and is not intended to, create or establish any basis for either a defence, estoppel or mitigation by the Customer as to the operation of clauses 9.3 and 10.1 to 10.2 (as appropriate) and the Customer hereby irrevocably waives any rights to do so (including pleading such).
3.7 The Customer shall be responsible for obtaining all permissions, licences and consents necessary for the placement of any Container on a highway (whether public or private) or in a public place. At the Customer’s request, We, as the Customer’s agent, will apply for the relevant permission, licence and consent to place the Container on the Public Highway for an additional Charge, but it is the Customer’s responsibility to ensure it complies with the Law for siting and guarding Containers on a Public Highway whist the Container remains on the Public Highway.
3.8 Where the Container is to be sited on a Public Highway the Customer shall comply with Coastal Recycling’s Guidance Leaflet on how to site and guard Containers on a Public Highway. Coastal Recycling shall hire to the Customer traffic cones and lamps as part of the Service. The Customer shall indemnify Coastal Recycling for any Losses arising out of or in connection with the Customer not complying with the Guidance Leaflet and the Law for the siting and guarding of Containers on a Public Highway, including the cost of Coastal Recycling’s workers having to attend the Site to provide additional cones or lamps (because they have been damaged or removed and, in the case of lamps, have ceased working or have not been working between the hours required for the lamps to be illuminated).
4. MAINTENANCE OF THE CONTAINER 4.1 Any Container shall at all times remain the property of Coastal Recycling, and the Customer shall have no right, title or interest in or to any Container (save the right to possession and use of any Container subject to the terms and conditions of this agreement). The Customer shall be liable for any Losses or damage to the Container from its delivery to the Site (including Losses and damage to the Container arising as a result of any Waste, Hazardous Waste or Unacceptable Waste placed in the Container, and fire damage to the Container).
4.2 The Container shall be deemed to be in good working order and condition except for defects not discoverable by a reasonable examination, unless otherwise notified to Coastal Recycling within 3 working days of delivery.
4.3 The Customer shall:
(a) be solely responsible for the safety, security and protection of the Container while it is at the Site;
(b) immediately notify Coastal Recycling if the Container needs maintenance or of any accident or damage to or involving the Container;
(c) not repair, damage or alter the Container in any way, including the removal or interference with any identification mark(s) found thereon;
(d) be liable for and pay for all and any Unacceptable Waste deposited in to the Container;
(e) be liable for and pay any and all Supplemental Charges that may arise in connection with the Service as set out in the Supplemental Charges Sheet;
(f) not overload the Container by filling it beyond its level load (including by using boards on the sides or in the Container to increase its capacity);
(g) ensure that Waste is loaded in manner that prevents Waste or dust from falling out or escaping whilst loading, at rest or in transit;
(h) not burn any matter in the Container or within the vicinity of the Container; (i) not mix Hazardous Waste with Waste or except where the Service is for Hazardous Waste put any Hazardous Waste into a Container; (j) not move the Container without the prior consent of Coastal Recycling unless required to do so forthwith by a member the Police or the Highway Authority in exercise of their duties; and (k) not purport to charge, sub-let or part with possession of the Container;
5.1 The Customer shall complete, or provide the necessary information to enable Us, as agent for the Customer, to complete, one Waste Transfer Note for each Container or Service supplied.
5.2 The Customer warrants, represents and undertakes to Us that;
(a) it is the owner of the Waste;
(b) the Waste Description is at all times true, complete and accurate in all respects;
(c) it has complied with the Duty of Care provisions;
(d) the contents of the Container does not contain: (i) any flammable or pressurised containers, noxious, explosive or dangerous material or is malodourous; (ii) dusty Waste (for example, sawdust, or wood shavings); (iii) offensive Waste (as described in the List of Wastes); (iv) human or animal excrement; (v) clinical waste; (vi) biological or other waste carrying, or which may carry, viruses or diseases (for example, Covid-19); (vii) Hazardous Waste (other than a Container specifically hired for Hazardous Waste); or (viii) any other waste that may be deemed a nuisance.

(f) he has complied with and followed the relevant Guidance Leaflet(s) in respect of the purpose for which he has hired the Container;
(g) if Hazardous Waste is included in the Service under this agreement, the Customer has complied fully with the Hazardous Waste Regulations 2009;
(h) he will be liable for and shall pay any and all Supplemental Charges arising in respect of a Service; and (i) he has all necessary consents, permissions, licences and authorisations in place, valid and subsisting to allow Us to carry out any Service at the Site.
5.3 Without prejudice to the Customer’s responsibility for the accuracy of the Waste Description, Coastal Recycling may, in its absolute discretion, carry out a waste analysis to ensure compliance with the classification of the waste, the 5 Law and the Duty of Care. The Customer shall pay for the cost of such analysis (see Supplemental Charges for the cost) plus 20% of such cost if that analysis shows the presence of either Unacceptable Waste, Hazardous Waste, or other wastes giving rise to a Supplemental Charge, or any combination of those, that was not specifically identified by the Customer at the time of booking and noted on the Waste Transfer Note.
5.4 Coastal Recycling may:
(a) refuse to collect a Container which is unsafe to Service (for example, over-loaded or loaded so it cannot be transported safely without the risk of Waste not being contained, or containing Unacceptable Waste or Hazardous Waste), in which case the Customer shall be liable for a Supplemental Charge for a Wasted Journey and shall rectify the problem with the Waste in the Container to Our satisfaction;
(b) require the Unacceptable Waste or excess Waste above the level load of the Container to be removed from the Container. If it is not removed within 20 minutes of request whilst the Service Vehicle is at the Site, the Customer shall be liable for a Supplemental Charge for a Wasted Journey and/or shall pay Coastal Recycling a Waiting Fee for each additional 20 minutes or part thereof We wait at the Site for the Unacceptable Waste or excess Waste to be removed; or
(c) collect and dispose of the Waste in the Container and adjust the Charges accordingly to reflect the additional costs incurred as a result, including any Supplemental Charges; or
(d) collect a Container which is over-loaded (provided the driver is satisfied, in his absolute discretion, that it is safe to do so) and the Customer shall be liable for a Supplemental Charge for the excess Waste (see the Supplemental Charges).
6.1 Where the Service provides for the collection of asbestos Waste the following conditions shall apply:
(a) (except in respect of bonded asbestos where we have agreed in writing otherwise) all asbestos must be double bagged (red bag and then clear bag) or double wrapped in clear plastic sheeting;
(b) where Services are limited to bag collection only, each bag must not exceed 10kg in weight. Any excess weight will incur an additional charge per kg as set out in the Supplemental Charge Sheet; and

(2) Working Days’ notice that the Container is ready to be collected or exchanged.
7.2 Subject to clause

8.2 A Customer’s account may be put ‘on stop’ at Coastal Recycling’s absolute discretion and will not be released, and no further Services shall be delivered to that Customer, until Coastal Recycling agrees in writing. This may include the Customer being required to pay all or any outstanding Charges or to pay a sum to bring their account into credit or provide a suitable guarantee.
8.3 A Customer without an account must pay in cleared funds any Charges in respect of the Services in advance before delivery of any Container.

(a) to the Site or property on the Site arising out of or in connection with the siting, exchanging, servicing, moving or collecting of a Container except where, and subject to the limit on liability in clause 9.7, any Losses arise as a result of the deployment of the extendable legs without using the protective pads under them;

9.4 Time is not of the essence of any part of the Service and We cannot specify a Service time (other than to indicate am or pm). We also cannot guarantee that a Service is going to occur on a particular day as our Services can be affected by numerous factors (including vehicle breakdown, driver sickness, driver driving hours and routing problems).

(a) re-supplying the Services;
(b) paying the cost of having the Services re-supplied; or
(c) repaying any Charges in respect of the part of the Services in dispute. Any claim made under this clause shall be notified within 48 hours of the time when the failure of the Services was or might reasonably have been discovered by the Customer.
