Hazardous Waste Disposal

Hazardous waste categories

The right company to deal with your hazardous waste disposal

Any waste which is potentially harmful to human health or the environment is categorised as hazardous waste.

This could be in the form of liquid waste like waste oils or toxic powders like asbestos from demolition sites, electrical or electronic waste, or waste chemicals. Find out more about how to classify different types of waste and our liquid waste disposal services.

Hazardous waste must be classified and stored correctly and can only be moved with a correct waste consignment note which describes it and how it was made. It needs to be individually wrapped, as it’s also illegal to mix hazardous and non-hazardous litter.

Any refuse classified as hazardous must be sent to a facility which is licensed to accept and process it. Clinical waste is carefully disposed of through hazardous waste incineration, so it does not end up in a landfill, polluting the environment and spreading disease or infection.

Our chemist testing facilities can help you identify dangerous waste and categorise it correctly in accordance with hazardous waste regulations.

Dealing with hazardous waste disposal incorrectly could land a business or organisation with a substantial fine. Incorrect hazardous business waste removal can also lead to high clear-up costs in such cases as  asbestos disposal or when toxic waste is released into the groundwater.
