Our experienced, professional cleaning team offer their Hazardous Waste Collection Services in Dorset, Hampshire and Wiltshire.
Why do I need a Hazardous Waste Collection service?
According to government guidelines, hazardous waste is anything that has the potential to harm health or the environment. It doesn’t always mean that there is an immediate risk to human health, although there are cases where specific wastes can indeed represent a serious risk. Many items can be identified as hazardous waste thanks to their labelling, namely those that include Orange and Black danger symbols, or red and white pictograms.
There are many hazardous wastes within our daily lives that need to be disposed of safely for both human and environmental protection. These substances include:
- Chemicals (e.g. Brake fluid, printer toner etc)
- Oils (car oil)
- Chemical Waste
- Clinical Waste
Hazardous waste can be found in many different situations and locations. For example, clinical waste occurs from human and animal health care activities that include infectious and non-infectious sharps. As with all hazardous waste categories, it is essential that sharp waste is collected in approved containers that protect the public from needle stick injuries. Chemical waste alongside clinical waste is also a significant risk to public health and environment. This type of waste includes chemicals that are found in batteries, paints, paint tins and ink containers, pesticides, flammable wastes (such as solvents), waste oil or rags.
Why should I choose your Hazardous Waste Collection service?
1st Commercial Cleaning understand the importance of effective waste segregation, collection, storage and disposal of all types of clinical hazardous waste. Our operatives provide the safe management of hazardous waste that will protect human health and the environment, ensuring all hazardous waste is removed and disposed of within the established legal framework and H&S guidelines requirements. Furthermore, 1st Commercial Cleaning (the commercial cleaning branch of our parent company OvenKing Nationwide Limited) is registered with the Environment Agency and you can check our registration in this link directly at the Agency’s website. It is a massive risk to use a contractor not registered with the Agency, as it puts the responsibility to you for using someone without the appropriate credentials.
