 What is Hazardous Waste?

Our hazardous wastes are divided into packaged waste and bulked waste as follows:


PACKAGED WASTE

Aerosols

We provide a recycling service for Waste Aerosols and can provide you with the appropriate containers for segregation and collection.  The recycling process involves separation and collection of propellants, liquids and metal casing, all of which are recycled.

Batteries

Our recycling service for Waste Batteries provides you with special storage boxes appropriate to your requirements and compliant with Dangerous Goods regulations. Non Lead Acid Batteries are sorted by Enviroco at our Approved Battery Treatment Operations Centre and sent into Europe for specialised recovery of metallic components as there are limited UK recovery options.  Lead Acid Batteries are sent for full recovery in the UK.

Tubes and Bulbs

We can provide you with suitable containers for storing your Fluorescent Fubes.  Once collected the Tubes are put through an innovative recycling process that crushes, washes and separates all components for recycling and the mercury element is re-refined for re-use in lighting manufacture.

Chemicals
