Hazardous Waste Management
Government guidance stipulates that you must classify the waste your business produces before it is collected for recycling or disposal. In the case of hazardous waste, classification can prove problematic as businesses tend not to have a comprehensive understanding as to what exactly constitutes hazardous waste. At Big Green, our waste experts can give you the advice you need to identify hazardous waste, and offer you the professional collection and disposal services you need to ensure it is dealt with in compliance with relevant UK legislation.
It is important for all businesses in the UK to gain a greater understanding of what types of waste are classified as hazardous. In doing so, they can ensure that they do not unwittingly place hazardous waste amongst general waste, endangering the environment and risking heavy fines as they do so.
