Health and Safety at Work (Hazardous Substances) Regulations 2017 requires all businesses that deal with Hazardous substances to keep an up to date inventory of all their hazardous substances, including waste materials. This is to ensure the risk they pose to employees and anyone else who may come into contact with them, as well as their environmental risk, can be safely managed.
Your responsibility doesn’t end once they have been collected for disposal. As the owner of the chemicals, you are legally responsible for them right through to the point of safe disposal or destruction. Choosing a certified contractor, like ChemCollect, is therefore vital.
We collect all types of hazardous waste materials from small to large quantities from commercial businesses, laboratories, schools, sports fields, households, the rural sector, and many other entities. The only materials we can’t accept are explosives.
All materials have differing active ingredients so collected items are segregated accordingly. These active ingredients determine what chemistry is required to neutralise the materials before they can be stabilised and disposed of. Some materials require offshore disposal through high temperature incineration where all emissions are captured.
Whatever your needs, our ChemCollect service can be adapted to suit them. Call us on 0508 243 642 or complete our quick form to help us understand how we can help. Once we’ve received your information; we’ll be in touch to work through the details.
