Hazardous waste/special waste collection and recycling
Whenever you need the removal of hazardous waste (often known as ‘special waste’) from your premises we can arrange it for you. We are qualified to remove all kinds of waste, including contaminated soils, fluorescent tubes, refrigeration unit, soils, tyres, aerosols, paint, plasterboard, solvents, laboratory chemicals and much more.
Expertise in this area is essential and we have the necessary knowledge to ensure you comply with all the relevant legislation, in particular the Hazardous Waste Regulations 2005. It is also important that hazardous and non-hazardous waste is dealt with separately and this is something we can also arrange for you.
Of course, it is not always obvious which waste is hazardous falls under the ‘hazardous’ category, so if you are unsure we can advise you accordingly. We are able to answer simple queries by phone but in many cases an on-site waste audit will be required to properly establish the nature of your waste and recommend a compliant storage and removal process.
When we remove your waste we will make sure it is contained and labelled properly, and provide the necessary information including a consignment note to ensure you meet your legislative obligations. This is vital as non-compliance with the regulations can incur a fine or even a prison sentence – something you won’t have to worry about when you call on us to manage the process for you.
