Industrial Waste

What is industrial waste

In order to effectively deal with industrial waste, you need to have a good understanding of what actually constitutes industrial waste.

Put simply, industrial waste is any waste material which is produced as a by-product of the manufacturing process. Therefore, there are many different waste types which fall under the umbrella term “industrial waste”. In fact, the term industrial waste refers more appropriately to the setting in which the waste is produced as opposed to the waste type itself.

However, there are certain types of waste which are commonly produced as a result of industrial processes. These include:

Chemical waste
Waste packaging

Therefore, any business which operates in the industrial sector must have procedures in place to ensure that these waste types are separated and securely stored. Failure to ensure safe and separate storage is a breach of Duty of Care regulations and can result in penalties such as unlimited fines and custodial sentences.
