Hazardous waste: put your trust in the experts

Hazardous waste drums

As a business in the chemical sector, you will undoubtedly produce complex, hazardous waste streams. You will already know that you need to fulfil your duty of care, by ensuring waste is disposed of safely and legally. This is crucial for protecting your license to operate, as well as your COMAH status.

Make sure that you are working with a partner who understands your legal obligations, and can support you to dispose of waste in the safest, most cost-effective manner.

Ensuring waste is handled correctly

The first step when dealing with complex waste is to classify the materials. This may be an area in which your business is lacking the internal resources, causing uncertainty about how to classify each waste stream. Once waste is classified correctly, choosing the right supplier comes with its own multitude of criteria.

You need to ensure that your waste will be removed safely and promptly, that it will be treated appropriately, and that the service you are getting offers value for money.

Putting your trust in the waste experts

Veolia can support you at every stage of the waste management process, and ensure that you are complying with all legal requirements and therefore protecting your license to operate. Our team of chemists can identify and categorise your complex waste streams, determining which disposal code they fall under. Where possible, we work to declassify waste, meaning that it can be recovered rather than incinerated. We are long-standing experts in compliance, and work to minimise the environmental impact of your waste whilst making sure it is being treated appropriately.

When waste needs to be taken off your site to be treated, we have our own nationwide infrastructure of vehicles and facilities. This means that you don't need to put your trust in multiple companies - we look after your waste from the moment it leaves your site to when it is destroyed, and can provide complete transparency on the process. We offer continued guidance on new legislation to make sure that your waste management processes remain compliant, whilst providing a cost-effective service that meets your needs.

Our Hazardous Waste Management service gives you access to the latest technologies to safely deal with your waste, across our network of inorganic and organic hazardous waste facilities.
