It is a criminal offense for organisations to mix hazardous waste with ordinary waste. If hazardous waste is not managed in the appropriate way it can be extremely harmful to the environment and to human health.
The Strategy for Hazardous Waste Management in England (2010), sets out principles to advise those who handle, manage and operate hazardous waste. Any producer or holder of hazardous waste has a legal ‘duty of care’ to manage the storage and disposal of hazardous waste safely and appropriately whatever the industry may be. Failing to manage hazardous waste can result in heavy fines, disreputability and potentially an immediate closure of your business.
Hazardous Waste Disposal
By outsourcing your hazardous waste disposal and collection to a competent and approved provider, you are ensuring that your business is fully compliant with the relevant hazardous waste disposal regulations.
Government guidance stipulates four key types of the hazardous waste which must be stored, collected and disposed of safely and suitably. These are:
- Universal Wastes, eg. batteries and mercury-containing equipment
- Mixed Wastes, eg. waste that contains radioactive and hazardous waste components
- Characteristic Wastes, eg. corrosive, toxic or reactive wastes
- Listed Wastes as determined by the EPA, eg. wastes from the F-list (common manufacturing waste) and K-list (specific industry waste).

Hazardous waste can not be disposed of in the usual way. Special care and precautions must be taken when handling and disposing of hazardous waste due to its dangerous nature. If your hazardous waste is not disposed of appropriately, the effects can be devastating, not only for the public and the environment but for your business.
Our qualified waste management experts have experience of handling, collecting and disposing of hazardous waste. Our specialists are educated on the regulations of hazardous waste disposal and will ensure that your business is also fully compliant with UK law.
Toxic Waste Disposal
Toxic waste is extremely dangerous, potentially causing humans and animals death, injury or birth defects. It is also very harmful and can pollute the environment due to the harmful toxins it gives off.
Due to the harmful nature of toxic waste, UK law requires that all organisations store and dispose of the toxic waste they produce in a safe appropriate manner, using a qualified provider. As an employer, you have a legal ‘duty of care’ to make sure toxic waste produced and handled by your company causes no harm or damage.
