Many hazardous products and industrial chemicals are distributed in packaging such as plastic drums, metal drums, and IBCs. This contaminated packaging needs to be removed and recovered in an efficient, compliant, and environmentally sustainable manner. Our managed recovery solution, delivered by experienced operators, allows for the expert assessment of the nature of the contamination coupled with a tailored handling approach.
We collect the used drums, IBCs, and other various packaging from your site and transport them to our licenced facilities. Depending on the quality of the packaging and the product they carried, we can offer to clean the containers. Alternatively, we clean, shred and compact the packaging for the recovery of the constituent materials (e.g. metals, plastic).
Packaging that contains product with difficult, toxic, low flashpoint or highly odorous characteristics are shipped to our appropriate European partners for thermal oxidation or chemfuel processing.
We ensure full compliance by providing waste tracking forms and a certificate of drum and IBC disposal for regulatory reporting. Our bespoke waste tracking system tracks waste every step of the way from the customer site to its final recovery/disposal. A full audit trail is visible and we can also provide customers with reports to assist in completing end of year AER, regulatory, and corporate requirements.
