From cardboard to hazardous waste: a waste service that can do it all

lab containers with bright liquid in it

From the food waste generated in canteens to the glass bottles that pile up in student accommodation, universities have a variety of waste needs to consider. One type of waste that needs special attention to ensure compliance is the hazardous waste that is created in laboratories and research facilities.

One streamlined supplier

For universities who already have a plethora of suppliers to manage, the last thing you need is several waste management providers looking after different waste streams. This can cause a headache for you, as a lack of transparency may make things difficult to manage. Without a consolidated, streamlined service, you may also pay more for your waste services. For large campuses with a huge number of containers and several different waste streams, you need to know that your waste is being managed efficiently, and will not have a negative effect on the environmental performance of your institution.

Perfect waste partner

Working with Veolia could remove these worries. Our compliant, reliable services across general waste, dry mixed recycling, food waste and more can give you peace of mind that your waste is being handled responsibly. Using one supplier for several different services also ensures that you have one point of contact; full traceability of your waste streams; and one consolidated solution in which separate services can run alongside each other seamlessly. This includes hazardous waste - a waste stream which requires a significant level of expertise and experience, to make sure you meet all of your compliance obligations.


A hazardous waste service to suit you

For institutions that produce large volumes of hazardous substances, we can provide a regular collection service to collect this waste, treat and dispose of it at our licensed network of hazardous waste facilities. We can even provide a chemist to list, segregate, pack and label your waste items compliantly ready for collection and disposal. Our chemists can coordinate their visits to service multiple departments on a pre-arranged day, to ensure we deliver the most cost-effective solution at all times.

For institutions who produce relatively small quantities of hazardous waste, you may not want to commit to this level of service. This is where Ecoservices by Veolia can help. Our hazardous waste experts are able to classify your waste streams, provide the necessary containers required for this waste (including our stackable Ecobox), and then arrange collection as and when you need it. This means that you don't have to commit to a costly hazardous waste contract if it's not required - we can provide a service that fits your individual requirements. Along with our collection and treatment services across many other waste streams, Veolia is your one stop shop for all your waste needs. ​


Our hazardous waste collection services give you access to the latest technologies to safely deal with your waste, across our network of inorganic and organic hazardous waste facilities.
