Hazardous Waste Materials

Hazardous waste disposal must be carried out with complete professional care by trained specialists. The Mick George Group are fully licensed to dispose of hazardous waste on a national basis but specifically throughout Cambridge, Peterborough, Huntingdon, Leicester, Northampton, Milton Keynes and the surrounding areas.

Our hazardous waste services include collection, treatment and disposal, all carried out to the strictest health and safety standards.

We ensure that all the hazardous waste we collect is properly inventoried, tracked and stored at all times, before being treated or disposed of in the most appropriate and responsible manner possible.

If you operate a construction or demolition site which contains hazardous waste materials, it’s imperative that you have it disposed of by a licensed waste carrier, allowing your project to continue on schedule.

See below for more information on the various types of toxic, flammable, corrosive and oxidising materials handled within our purpose-built facilities designed to suitably manage hazardous materials.

 

Acids

Acids – Corrosive substances pose a risk to the immediate environment and should be stored and disposed of accordingly. Commonly found as chemical waste or as lead-acid.

Adhesives

Adhesives – Adhesive solvents and their containers are classed as hazardous and are often found in construction and demolition.

Aerosols

Aerosols – Presenting a risk of explosion, aerosols which are not fully emptied should be kept away from heat and should be disposed of separately.

Asbestos

Asbestos – Found in construction and demolition, often as insulation, asbestos poses a major health risk if the fibres are inhaled.

Batteries

Batteries – Whether mixed batteries, car batteries or Ni-Cd batteries used in portable devices, these contain hazardous chemicals which should be segregated.

Clinical Waste

Clinical Waste – Derived from healthcare, clinical waste is that which contains potentially infectious material, including anatomical waste.

Fluorescent Tubes 

Fluorescent tubes – Found in some televisions as well as lightbulbs and lamps, these tubes contain mercury, a hazardous chemical which requires careful disposal to avoid contaminating the environment.

Paints

Paints – Commonly used in construction and by homeowners, paints and varnishes contain solvents which must be kept separate from other waste to ensure they do not contaminate the environment.

Oils

Oils – This includes oils from vehicles, interceptors and any associated components, often derived from the automotive industry. Different oils must not be mixed and should be prevented from leaking into the surrounding environment.

Laboratory & Bulk Chemicals

Laboratory and Bulk Chemicals – Flammable, corrosive or explosive, there are many materials and chemicals from laboratories which present a hazard to people and the surrounding environment, including liquids, solids and vapours.

Pharmaceuticals

Pharmaceuticals – Waste from pharmaceuticals, whether waste toxic medicine or sharps such as needles, should be collected and classified as hazardous waste.

Rags, wipes, contaminated packaging

Rags, wipes, contaminated packaging – Any cloth or material which has been contaminated with hazardous material is itself then considered hazardous. This is commonly materials that are soiled with paints, oils and chemicals.

Washings

Washings – Effluents from washing, such as soil treatment or even from commercial car washing, can contaminate groundwater and requires dedicated collection and disposal.

WEEE

Waste Electrical and Electronic equipment (WEEE) – Often separated for recycling anyway, extra care must be taken for waste electrical items which contain hazardous components. This includes cooling agents from white goods and anything containing batteries, circuit boards or mercury switches.
