Hazardous waste

Hazardous wastes, by their own nature, have the ability to cause harm, damage and risk to human life and the environment. It is therefore necessary to dispose of these wastes in a more controlled manner than general wastes. The legislation concerning the storage, carriage and disposal of hazardous wastes can be very complex and has the potential to cause many issues to the un-initiated. 

W.A.S. Ltd in Lowestoft take on board all of these issues on your behalf. With assessment and listing by our own staff, completion of hazardous waste consignment notes, packaging, collection and disposal, our customers have the choice to be involved as much or as little as they wish.

Hazardous wastes are defined as wastes that pose one or more of the Hazard Properties HP1 – HP15 or those that are listed as hazardous waste in the European Waste Catalogue.

Recycling is normally a term associated with paper, cardboard and the like. However, most hazardous wastes are also recycled or recovered in some way. Legislation dictates that wastes must be pre-treated and not simply sent to landfill. The vast majority of our hazardous waste disposal routes are actually recycling and recovery options, helping to improve your environmental impacts.
