Safety and compliance

Hazardous waste can be found in almost all industries. As well as discharges and byproducts of manufacturing processes, it includes everyday items such as:


  • Fluorescent tubes and sodium lamps
  • Contaminated spills and rags
  • Aerosols
  • Paint in original containers
  • Lead acid batteries
  • Antifreeze and brake fluids
  • Oil and fuel filters
  • Toner / laser cartridges
  • Inkjet cartridges
  • Asbestos

To ensure your organisation is legally compliant, you need to have a hazardous waste management service in place. Under the Hazardous Waste (England) Regulations 2005, organisations must ensure that their hazardous waste is segregated from general waste and disposed of appropriately.

Specialist expertise

Our nationwide team of specialists ensures your hazardous waste is always handled in a compliant and environmentally‑sound way. Managing hazardous waste in this way means you can demonstrate that you have a compliant waste management service in place, and enjoy peace of mind.

SUEZ management systems and facilities are accredited under the relevant international standards for environmental protection, quality and safety.

We also provide an emergency waste removal and clean-up service for 24-hour support.

Everyday workplace hazardous waste

We provide a hazbox service that is ideal for organisations producing small quantities of everyday hazardous waste.
Hazardous waste items can be stored in a hazbox and once the box is full, we exchange it for an empty one.

SUEZ ensures the hazardous items are recycled and disposed of in a compliant way.

Industrial-scale projects

We also handle larger volumes of hazardous waste – including industrial‑scale projects, such as managing drums of chemicals and tankering hazardous wastes, providing UN-approved storage containers and full paperwork for waste transfers.

Hazardous waste containers

We can advise you as to the containers best suited to the nature and volume of your hazardous wastes.

Our hazbox service is ideal for workplaces that produce everyday items of hazardous waste – such as light bulbs, toner cartridges and batteries.

Larger volumes of hazardous waste can also be taken care of with UN-approved storage.
