Hazardous Waste Disposal, Collection and Legislation

We have the licences, equipment, capabilities and resources to meet all your obligations for Environmental legislation and the disposal of hazardous waste.

Some kind of hazardous waste is produced by virtually every company.  When you consider that the description of hazardous waste is – waste that is “deemed harmful to public health, or to the environment”, it is easy to understand why the implications of its disposal are so far-reaching.

It is important to remember that hazardous wastes aren’t necessarily generated immediately, some are developed over an extended period of time.

Disposal of Hazardous Waste

There are a number of different types and classifications of hazardous waste and at Betts Envirometal we can give you everything you need to know to make an informed decision based on the best practises and legal requirements you have as a UK business. Some of the most frequently seen producers of waste classified as hazardous include: construction and building, agriculture, demolition, logistics, automotive and retail (although not exclusively)

As a business generating hazardous waste needing to be disposed of, you should have a responsibility officially referred to as your “Duty of Care” to ensure that any waste you are accountable for (that you handle as a business or produce as a business) does not result in any harm or damage. You can find out more information on business and commercial waste on the Gov.uk website here.
