Hazardous waste can be highly complex and hugely varied which requires it to be managed safely and to the highest environmental standards. As with all waste types, our focus is on recycling and recovery through new and innovative processes. If waste cannot be recycled or recovered it will be treated to ensure it can be disposed of safely and compliantly. Whether it’s oils, contaminated soil, clinical waste or chemicals, our experience and expertise mean a solution is almost always available.
Enva offer ad hoc or scheduled hazardous and specialist waste collections to meet our customer requirements. All waste is packaged, labelled and transported according ADR/IMDG regulations to one of our licensed facilities. On site surveys, sampling and testing services combined with our laboratory facilities can identify waste material and advise on safe, compliant storage.
Our in-house laboratories determine the most appropriate treatment, recovery and disposal methods from advanced physical, biological and chemical processes. Where waste cannot be treated at our own facilities, we work with trusted partners to deliver the most effective and efficient treatment solution.
For auditing and regulatory compliance waste is tracked through our processes, reports and certificates of treatment/recovery/disposal provided as standard. Our team of professionals also advise on waste handling, waste storage and spills.
