Do you have banned fire-fighting foams stored onsite?

The team from ChemCollect can help.

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

For more information call 0508 CHEMICAL or email us.

Best practice disposal

We use best practice collection and disposal methods in accordance with all applicable regulations.  As well as helping businesses and individuals avoid environmental harm through unsafe disposal, our services also assist New Zealand to meet its obligations under the Stockholm Convention for the elimination and disposal of persistent organic pollutants.
