Top Five Hazardous Wastes

When it comes to waste one of the key pressure points is hazardous waste. They often have slightly different requirements for how the waste is both stored and transported.

There are additional requirements to make sure you as the producer, your waste contractors and the facilities disposing of the waste are preventing any harm being caused to the environment.

From our experience the top five hazardous wastes for manufacturers are:

  • WEEE
  • Paints and inks
  • Cleaning chemicals
  • Batteries
  • Oily rags

We have put together a summary for you to use as a quick reference guide to help you when handling these materials.
