What is a hazardous waste and how is classified?
According to the UK government ‘Waste is generally considered hazardous when the materials that contains are harmful to human health or the environment. Some waste can be risky to human health’. Examples of hazardous waste could include asbestos, chemicals, such as brake fluid or print toner, batteries, solvents, pesticides, oils (except edible ones), such as car oil, equipment containing ozone depleting substances, like fridges and among others hazardous waste containers.
Hazardous waste is classified into four categories:
- Ignitable waste
- Corrosive waste
- Reactive waste
- Toxic waste
It is important to check the Hazardous Waste Regulations that were introduced to replace the Special Waste Regulations Act of 2006.
