Hazardous Waste Disposal Services
Implementation of Hazardous Waste Regulations and Landfill Directive has resulted in the biggest changes in the management and disposal of hazardous wastes and chemical wastes for more than 30 years.
With over 17 years experience in the field and compliant with all relevant legislation mentioned here, we handle all hazardous wastes including:
- Paints and aerosols
- Fluorescent lights
- And many others
We provide a comprehsive total solution including, where necessary, analysis, packing, labeling, transport and disposal.
Using our extensive knowledge of hazardous chemical waste disposal, we will select the most appropriate disposal route for your wastes and ensure all documentation and licensing is in place.
Options for hazardous waste disposal include:
Hazardous Landfill, historically the cheapest option but changes in waste acceptance criteria and reductions in capacity make delivering waste directly to site often impractical and uneconomic. Still a viable option for larger quantities and bulk wastes (contaminated soils) as well as regular homogeneous wastes such as contaminated packaging. All waste must be subject to laboratory analysis before acceptance which adds costs pre disposal.
Incineration, there are a number of incinerators around the country with different capabilities. Some can burn non-hazardous waste and clinical waste with energy recovery (some recycling) whilst most hazardous waste, including all pesticides, go to specialist high temperature waste incinerators for final destruction. This is regarded as the safest and most effective way of dealing with combustible organic wastes, which are unsuitable for landfill because of their toxicity, flammability or resistance to natural breakdown.
Treatment / recovery, most chemical waste is consigned to treatment and processing plant before going to their final disposal sites. These facilities will process wastes by neutralising wastes, denaturing aqueous solutions and shredding and reducing the volume of packaging. Low flash point wastes may be recovered for re-use in chem-fuels.
Using our extensive knowledge and research capabilities we at iSolvents can advise on the suitability of each disposal route and arrange for any necessary testing and analysis required.
Track and Trace Auditing
Our unique track and trace system allows auditable tracking routes of all wastes through the system from removal, treatment and disposal. We provide a Safe Disposal Certificate with the relevant tracking details of all waste streams independently. We also supply monthly reports on the status of your waste streams.
- All hazardous waste and chemical waste is properly classified before consignment.
- All necessary labels and over packing materials are provided.
- All necessary documentation for hazardous waste disposal is completed.
- Fully compliant and auditable crade-to-grave documentation.
