Hazardous waste disposal and removal

 

Hazardous waste disposal and removal can range from asbestos to sharp objects. At ADS Recycling we specialise in many different areas of waste disposal and removal; this includes hazardous waste. Because of the hazards which come with this type of waste, they cannot simply be placed in a skip and require specialist removal to be taken away.

Waste which is contaminating land or a building can easily be removed with our specialist equipment, quickly and at a low cost. We can take a sample of the contaminated waste, analyse it in a lab to find out what the waste consists of, and then dispose of it in accordance with special Waste Regulations 1996 & Environmental Protection (Duty of Care) Regulation 1990. We do this because we believe recycling is a key factor in reducing CO2 emissions and therefore we are doing our part in saving the planet.

Asbestos can be very harmful, especially when spores are breathed in. Asbestos can lead to diseases such as lung cancer, mesothelioma and asbestosis. These are very harmful and we ensure the whole area will be completely cleared of all asbestos. Asbestos has been used for a number of years so can be found in many different places. It isn’t just old buildings and roofing that may contain asbestos; car brakes, heat resistant fabrics and shingles all could contain asbestos.

Common items such as televisions can be seen as hazardous under many different safety acts. So if you want to scrap a television, you must ensure that you are correctly disposing of them.

 

What makes hazardous waste hazardous?

 

Hazardous waste is deemed hazardous if it exhibits one of the four characteristics defined in 40 CFR Part 261 Subpart C – ignitability (D001), corrosivity (D002), reactivity (D003), and toxicity (D004 – D043).
