What Is Hazardous Waste?
All businesses produce waste, but not all of them produce hazardous waste. Hazardous waste is, according to the UK Government, waste that is harmful to humans or the environment. This is quite a broad term, and it's not always clear exactly what kind of waste this includes, so read on to find out exactly what qualifies.
How Do You Manage Hazardous Waste?
Managing hazardous waste involves gathering and processing materials classified as hazardous. Specialised teams and equipment need to be used to minimise the harm done to both human health and the environment.
The management of hazardous waste is costly but extremely important. There are several laws in place to ensure that businesses deal with it properly; whether your business is small or large, you need to make sure you remain within the strict guidelines as not doing so could result in legal action.
