Transporting Hazardous Waste

Hazardous waste disposal

For a business to collect and transport hazardous waste, it must follow stringent steps in order to remain registered and compliant. These steps include:

  • Registering as a waste carrier through the gov.uk website.

  • Checking parts A and B of the consignment note and the waste being transported before accepting it. This ensures that we can ensure that the waste has been properly classified according to the types of materials and whether they’re hazardous or non-hazardous.

  • The filling in of the consignment note before leaving the site.

  • Leaving a copy of the consignment note with the waste producer or holder (e.g. a commercial business, industrial site or property landlord), as well as keeping two copies for ourselves and the disposal facility.

  • The waste can only be taken to an authorised waste site.

  • Records (known as a register) are then kept on file for at least one year.

By following these steps to the letter, we can guarantee that all types of hazardous waste are properly transported and disposed of on behalf of our customers.

Hazardous waste disposal routes

There are numerous ways that hazardous waste is disposed on within the UK. For instance, liquid waste such as oils, paint and chemicals will take a different disposal route to batteries or pesticides, as all forms of waste need to go through a suitable disposal process. These routes can include treatment, recovery, incineration and landfill, which will be managed by a licensed waste management facility.
