Removing hazardous waste is a dangerous occupation, and yet it is a specialist skill that is in growing demand. From new property owners seeking to clear out a new property which has been used by squatters, to the scourge of fly-tipping,
and even to hazardous waste being found in people’s gardens. It all needs to be cleared away by specialist rubbish collectors who are able to take care of this rubbish, and remove it so that it doesn’t risk the health of anyone.
From computers and electronic equipment that can’t be binned, to fridges and ovens that need to be disposed of in a particular manner, and even shapes and needles that have been found in an inherited house, calling in a specialist team is often the only solution.
Careful disposal of Hazardous waste
Hazardous waste needs to be disposed of carefully, in order to ensure that it is not a risk to the health of the public, or a danger to the environment. This might include clinical waste, such as blood, disposable pads, and urine pots, or infection-risk waste such as sharps. These all need to be cleared away as quickly as possible, in order to make sure that they pose no risk to humans.
There are several types of rubbish clearance, including the disposal of needles, syringes, broken bottles and other contaminated sharps from homes, from communal areas, and from clinical areas. The rubbish team can also remove items from properties, or take away bio-hazards that might pose a risk to health if left in the property. All of these items will then be discarded in an approved way, usually though incineration at a licensed property. The cleaning experts will take care of any recycling of items likes fridges, tyres and ensure other items like chemicals and other contaminants, plus needles etc will be taken to the correct facilities.
