Our Hazardous Waste Disposal Services
Ever changing legislation means that both companies and the general
public find themselves producing waste that is now classed as hazardous. This
type of waste has different disposal requirements from non-hazardous waste,
so it’s important that specific steps are followed in order to ensure that waste
is disposed of in a legally compliant manner.
BKP Waste & Recycling have one of the most comprehensive site licences in Hampshire, and because of this unique licence and its location, BKP work with commercial or industrial customers as well as the domestic market for regular and one-off loads. Be it pallets of hazardous paints, aerosol cans, acids and alkalis or out of date packaged food items, asbestos or WEEE (Waste Electronic and electrical equipment) waste, BKP can help.
Hazardous Waste Collection & Disposal Services
Waste is considered hazardous when it poses a threat to human health or the environment. This covers a broad spectrum of waste streams, from items such as acids, asbestos and waste oil to small batteries and domestic fridges and freezers. Through our unique site licence, BKP are equipped to deal with a large variety of these waste streams.
When disposing of hazardous waste, it is important to follow the hazardous waste regulations. These regulations contain information regarding waste that is classified as hazardous.
BKP is unique in that it offers both a collection and disposal service as well as just a disposal facility. We also handle all the relevant legal paperwork when arranging the waste collection; giving our clients the peace of mind that everything is being taken care of. However, if you wish to transport your waste to our transfer station yourself, you legally need to hold a Waste Carriers licence to do this and BKP will request confirmation of this prior to your arrival on site. Penalties up to £5,000 can be incurred if you transport waste without one.
Registration for a waste carriers’ licence is simple and usually free if you are the waste producer and once you are registered, your organisations details will appear on the public register. You can find out more, or register on the government website: https://www.gov.uk/waste-carrier-or-broker-registration
Also, don’t forget that with the transportation of hazardous waste, each load needs to be supported with an Environment Agency consignment note. To find out more about this legal documentation, visit: EA website for consignment notes
