Waste is considered hazardous if it is harmful to humans or the environment. This sort of waste must be stored and collected separately from non-hazardous waste by law. If you need help with your hazardous waste management, turn to the experts at Zest Recycle.
Hazardous Waste Disposal
Examples of hazardous waste include: batteries, oils, solvents, pesticides, chemicals such as print toner, equipment containing ozone-depleting substances and asbestos. Certain types of packaging for hazardous waste materials may also be considered hazardous if it cannot be proven to be free of the once-enclosed substance, such as certain types of cleaning products.
At Zest Recycle, we provide a full hazardous waste disposal service that covers identifying, packing, labelling, transporting and disposing of all types of hazardous waste. We identify the most environmentally compliant and cost-effective route for all hazardous waste, aiming to recycle, recover, treat or reuse wherever possible.
Hazardous waste regulations can be complicated to navigate, so to ensure your business is 100% compliant, contact the Zest Recycle team today. Based in Essex, we provide a national service, serving London and all towns and cities throughout the UK.
