Hazardous Waste Disposal: How to Guide

No matter what form of commercial project you’re undertaking, all waste that your project generates needs to be disposed of correctly. Admittedly, there are various ways in which materials can be disposed of; can they be recycled? Can they be reused? Should they go to landfill? North West Waste Consultants are always on hand to provide you with any advice or guidance that you require for hazardous waste disposal, so don’t hesitate to find out more! OK… so what do we mean by the term “hazardous waste”? Hazardous waste is anything that could potentially cause harm, either socially or environmentally. If you’re not entirely sure what hazardous waste is, it’s always a good idea to speak with someone who has the know-how (like us at North West Waste!)

What’s changed?

In 2005, the law changed for hazardous waste disposal. The Environmental Agency clamped down on hazardous waste disposal, making it illegal to dump dangerous materials at the landfill site, in a skip or any other premises for that matter. Regardless of how big or small the volume of hazardous waste is, you’ll want to make sure that you dispose of it in the correct manner, otherwise you can expect large fines and potential closure..
