Laboratory Waste Disposal Guide
We know that disposing of these lab waste safely can be both hazardous and expensive. This is why we’ve put together this simple step by step guide to help guide you through the complex parts and also why we hope you’ll choose us for your lab waste disposal requirements.
Firstly we need to know exactly which laboratory wastes we’re dealing with. At this stage the more information you can give us the faster we’ll be able to arrange your quotation and book in your collection.
A list with the following information would be a huge help:
– Name of chemistry
– Location of collection
– Any preferred collection dates
Hopefully your lab technician should be able to help you compile this list, but if you do have any problems or queries we have chemists of our own ready to lend a helping hand so please just let us know.
Regrettably to ensure the collection is carried out safely and in-keeping with the latest Environmental Law and Legislation this information must be provided.
All Waste Management Companies need to have been provided this information prior to the collection in order to complete the Hazardous waste disposal consignment notes. Please be wary when dealing with a company if they neglect to ask you for these details.
Fortunately as many of our customers have found out our lab waste disposal costs are considerably cheaper than most if not all of our competitors, so this part is never as painful as you might expect.
In 2014 we have added incineration disposal options for our lab waste which now complement other neutralisation processes, ensuring our disposal routes are amongst the most environmentally friendly and cost effective in the business.
We aim to make the collection process as effortless as possible. If you have any special requirements such as out of hours collection requests please do let us know and we’ll do our very best to accommodate you.
Our collection driver will arrive at the agreed time and safely pack the lab waste in designated storage solutions appropriate for transport back to our recycling facility.
At the time of collection he will leave you all the relevant paperwork which you should retain for your records as proof of proper laboratory chemical disposal.
