What is Hazardous Waste?
Hazardous waste is any waste product that has considerable or potential risks to public health or the environment. Material that is considered as hazardous is known to or been tested to show one or more of the below dangerous traits:
- Corrosivity Toxicity
Our hazardous wastes are divided into packaged waste and bulked waste as follows:
GARY LIDDLE PARTNER, ISIS PHOTOGRAPHIC LTD.“The chemicals we use in our manual processing can be harmful and need to be disposed of carefully. CheaperWaste provide us with a fully audited trail in line with legislation and good practice.”
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.
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 Tubes. 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.
We deal with a range of Waste Solvents including waste paints, thinners, solvent-based inks, alcohols, flammable resins and adhesives, chlorinated solvents, petrol, and numerous non-chlorinated solvents. We have established recycling and recovery routes for these wastes and can also offer a toll recovery service if required.
We offer a full WEEE collection re-use and recycling service providing you with suitable containers for storage of items such as TVs, computers monitors and fridges for processing under the requirements of the European WEEE Directive.
CheaperWaste uses a fleet of collection and removal vehicles, including ADR, rated vacuum tankers for the collection of your bulk hazardous wastes.
