Safe disposal of hazardous waste


 

What is Hazardous Waste?

This can be a tricky waste stream and the pitfalls are numerous. Hazardous waste comes with it’s own set of legislation and disposal is a different prospect to a waste such as cardboard or plastic.

 

Various wastes fall under the banner of Hazardous, here’s just a few:

 


      • Contaminated oil
      • Oily rags
      • Contaminated water
      • Fluorescent tubes
      • Paint tins
      • Paint
      • Hydraulic oils
      • Filter cake
      • Aerosols
      • Suds water
      • Acids
      • Quench oils


General Waste

Where does WEEE waste fit into hazardous?


Often mislabelled and incorrectly stored, WEEE waste is part of the Hazardous family, but also has it’s own set of rules for governance. Firstly, WEEE stands for Waste Electrical & Electronic Equipment and is a Directive introduced into UK law in 2007. Any item that has incurred an electrical charge and is to be disposed of falls under the banner of WEEE. The Directive is designed to prevent any commercial electronic or electrical equipment making it’s way to landfill.

 

For clarity, some examples of WEEE waste could be:

 

  • Telecommunications equipment
  • IT equipment such as Computers / Laptops
  • TV / Monitors
  • Batteries
  • Lighting equipment
  • Electrical and electronic tools
