Hazardous waste

Waste that has the potential to be harmful to people or the environment needs special handling and processing. All organisations have a legal responsibility to manage their hazardous waste appropriately.

To ensure your organisation has a legally compliant waste management system, you need to ensure you have a hazardous waste management service in place. Under the Hazardous Waste (England) Regulations 2005, organisations must ensure that their hazardous waste is segregated from general waste and disposed of appropriately.

SUEZ recycling and recovery UK’s hazardous waste management services are the ideal solution for organisations that produce small quantities of everyday hazardous waste and those with industrial-scale requirements.

SUEZ’s hazbox service is the ideal solution for organisations that produce small quantities of everyday hazardous waste. Hazardous waste items can be stored in a hazbox and once the box is full, it can be exchanged for an empty one. SUEZ then ensures the hazardous items are recycled and disposed of in a compliant way.

We can also handle larger volumes of hazardous waste – including industrial‑scale projects, such as managing drums of chemicals and tankering hazardous wastes, providing UN-approved storage containers and full paperwork for waste transfers.

Our nationwide team of specialists ensures your hazardous waste is always handled in a compliant and environmentally‑sound way. Managing hazardous waste in this way means you can demonstrate that you have a compliant waste management service in place, providing you with peace of mind.

Hazardous waste can be found in almost all industries and includes everyday items such as:

  • Fluorescent tubes and sodium lamps
  • Contaminated spills and rags
  • Aerosols
  • Paint in original containers
  • Lead acid batteries
  • Antifreeze and brake fluids
  • Oil and fuel filters
  • Toner / laser cartridges
  • Inkjet cartridges
  • Asbestos
