When dealing with commercial waste, you must first identify if it is considered hazardous. If the waste is harmful to humans or the environment, it fits into the hazardous waste category and therefore, must be handled and disposed of according to HSE regulations.

Depending on the kind of business you have, the duty of care and requirements expected of your business will change. Producers, holders, carriers, and consignee companies face extra requirements for the way in which they handle and dispose of hazardous waste.

Examples of hazardous waste:

  • Asbestos
  • Pesticides
  • Oils
  • Hazardous waste containers
  • Chemicals
  • Batteries

Once you have identified the waste types, your business is producing, it is essential to create a waste management plan which meets the appropriate regulations. Having this comprehensive plan in place, which covers all aspects of waste management, means you can minimise the risk of the hazardous waste to humans and the wider environment.

More information about hazardous waste disposal regulations can be found via the government website.

The importance on meeting hazardous waste disposal regulations

Failing to meet the regulations surrounding the handling and disposal of hazardous waste can be detrimental for the wider environment and those in the surrounding areas. Depending on the type of waste being produced, the requirements for disposal will change, however, no matter how complex these processes are, they are a legal requirement.

Failing to meet the required legislation can also result in penalties and fines from the government, for the company and any parties involved in the improper disposal of hazardous waste.

As a business owner, you are responsible for how the waste your business produces is dealt with, and so failing to manage this properly is your responsibility. We have worked with many clients who have been victims of fraudulent waste disposal companies, therefore it is also key to check the company you work with has the appropriate licenses.
