We specialise in providing cost effective and environmentally friendly hazardous waste disposal services to commercial and industrial clients. As part of specialised services our we will remove and dispose of chemical waste, toxic waste, asbestos disposal, sharps removal, plus other types of contaminated waste disposal.
Nearly all household, commercial and industrial wastes are Directive Wastes and require assessment to determine if they are hazardous waste. The phrase “Directive Waste” refers to European legislation called the revised Waste Framework Directive . This identifies the environmental protection principles behind waste management. It also identifies which wastes are covered by these principles and those which are not.
Some wastes are completely excluded from being Directive Wastes and all waste controls; some are excluded if covered by other European legislation. Examples of exclusions include decommissioned explosives, waste waters and animal by-products. Further information on exclusions can be found in Defra’s guidance ‘Definition of Waste’  and on their website:
