Are you a local council looking for a more affordable and efficient way to run hazardous household waste collection events?

Operated by 3R Group’s ChemCollect, MyHazWaste runs one-off or regular events for the safe disposal of hazardous household waste in association with local councils. MyHazWaste events provide a smart solution to bring about long-term behaviour change by educating the public on existing recycling or disposal solutions and encouraging them to safely dispose of the remainder with ChemCollect. It also helps budgeting and planning by providing an online booking system to track or limit the volume of waste expected at the event.

For more information call 0508 CHEMICAL or email us.

A MyHazWaste pop-up event will:

  • Educate residents
  • Enable accurate budgeting
  • Create operational efficiencies
  • Minimise health & safety risks
  • Save money

Do have you banned firefighting foams stored on site?

In 2006, New Zealand’s Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) banned the importation, manufacture and use of any firefighting foam (FF) which contains perfluorooctane sulfonic acid (PFOS) and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA). Those in possession of banned FF have since been working to remove it and decontaminate any affected plant.

We have the solution

3R Group’s ChemCollect service has experience in the decontamination and disposal of firefighting equipment and appliances. Our decontamination process is both efficient and effective, which means:

Minimised downtime of vital equipment

Affordable decontamination options for your organisation

Risk to your organisation and the environment is eliminated

Compliance with EPA regulations/standards
