Hazardous waste regulations
Hazardous waste regulations were first introduced in 1996 under the Special Waste policies. These were updated on 16th July 2005 as the Hazardous Waste (England & Wales) Regulations 2005. The two key changes were: far more waste types were introduced into the regulations, now effecting a much larger range of producers; and that hazardous waste producers are required to pre-register their premises before any hazardous waste can be collected.
The 1999 EU Landfill directive applies various requirements to site types depending on whether the site is existing, new, hazardous or non-hazardous. This directive was introduced to define the changes in what waste landfills would be able to accept over an agreed staged period. This resulted in many changes including banning gypsum, waste electrical, liquid waste and co-mingled hazardous waste such as asbestos and contaminated soil.
Below are examples of some of the hazardous waste we can collect:
Oily rags, paint tins, aerosols & resin waste
We provide wheeled bins and skips for bagged waste in sizes to suit the needs of the customer. Skip options are based on haulage and tipping and are of course subject to acceptance depending on the data sheet or analysis.
240 litre bin or 205 litre clip top drum.
We provide a 300mm diameter 2.6 metre tall plastic tube with caps for the storage and recycling of lamp tubes. These can hold up to 100 tubes depending on the size.
These tubes when full are brought to our recycling centre where they are crushed in a specialist machine that extracts the harmful gasses through a filter system and enables the glass to be collected and sent for re-processing.
Our rate is already very competitive for this service so again we can help you save money and raise much needed cash for the school we support.
We provide a comprehensive, fully licensed removal and disposal service for chemicals, paints and oils including unmarked drums etc.
This service is available across the South of England and covers small collections through to production facility decommissioning.
Please call our hazardous waste team on 01392 361300 for help with any chemical waste disposal requirement.
We also collect types in bulk or even as single items.
