Chemical Disposal

Chemical waste can have a very wide meaning, and can range from toxic chemicals all the way through to general household cleaning products and everything in between.

We can offer complete chemical site clearances or regular scheduled collections for your waste streams, providing assistance n segregation, categorisation, labelling and advice on storage and additional hazardous that may be present.

We offer a variety of containers including clip top and screw top / vented drums in a variety of sizes and styles. Open or closed IBC’s are available, as too are pallet boxes, haz-boxes and packaging materials such as vermiculite. We can provide these prior to collections or on the day.

Most chemicals can be quoted for disposal by providing lists and accompanying MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheets) or pictures outlining the product labels, and if you have chemicals that are unknown, we are able to provide chemist visits, sampling and basic / full analysis to determine the waste prior to quoting and disposal.

Chemicals can be disposed of in a number of ways from recycling of raw materials through to incineration for renewable energy and bacterial disposals.

Hazardous Chemicals

“I recently took over a factory that had drums and other containers left behind from the previous tenant. I needed to dispose of these chemicals, however, had no idea how to go about it, since the majority of waste was not labelled and mixed in.

I contracted Haz-Stop and was put in touch with Ian, their senior chemist who quoted me on a chemist visit to sample, segregate and analyse the waste pre-quote. The rates were very reasonable so I accepted this offer and Ian came to site 2 days later. I think there was more waste than he expected, and despite it being a hot day, he soldiered on, wearing full protective clothing and respiratory equipment and spent the whole day on site. He did an outstanding job and even when I offered to help, he was more concerned about my welfare as I did not have the relevant protection than that of the hard work he needed to do.

In the end, all was ready for go. I’m so glad I called him in, and soon after the quotation came in for disposals which was very reasonable. Within a week, the site was cleared. I am unlikely to have any more hazardous waste as my business doesn’t involve the use of chemicals, however, if it ever did, I would be going back to Haz-Stop based on the service I received this time around.”
