Special Waste Disposal
Special Waste Disposal
Considered to be the more dangerous forms of Hazardous Waste, Special Waste Disposal requires significant control and safety at all times. GD Environmentals special waste disposal team are licensed to collect transfer and dispose of all forms of special waste whether its a single item collection or bulk collection int he form of a skip or artic trailer collection.
There are various forms of special waste, these can include:
* Alkaline solutions
* Oil fly ash
* Industrial solvents
* Pharmaceutical compounds
* Photographic chemicals
* Waste oils
* Wood preservatives.
What should you do if you require special waste disposal?
Legislation requires all customers to notify regulators before any special waste can be removed. This is called pre-notification. You do this by filling in a form called a consignment note which can be provided by GD Environmental. You must send off the form at least 3 clear working days before you want the waste removed. The regulations do not say how the waste should be packaged and handled but you should follow the Duty of Care.
Duty of care explained
GD Environmental would like to emphasise that there is a duty of care which applies to the producers of ALL waste, special or otherwise, to ensure that that waste is handled in a correct manner.
For special waste, a consignment note replaces the duty of care transfer note. The duty of care means that you must give a good enough description to enable your waste to be safely managed. Most special wastes need very clear description. Waste must always be transferred to an authorised person e.g. registered waste carrier or a licensed waste manager. Remember that transport, health and safety and other safety legislation may also apply. GD Environmental’s friendly staff are more than happy to assist in the completion of any duty of care or consignment notes when required.
