Other hazardous waste items
Safe removal & disposal of asbestos
We are licenced asbestos specialists who know how to safely remove the materials containing asbestos and how to treat it to avoid contamination. If you are taking on construction refurbishment or demolition of premises built between 1950 and 1999, you must check for asbestos before commencing any work. If asbestos is present you must ensure that its removal is done in the correct way to preserve your health and others.
Solowaste can provide the complete solutions for the removal & disposal of asbestos, providing secure skips and eurobins to your site so the asbestos can be removed safely. We will then arrange for the full skip or bin to be collected from your site and take it to a third party’s premises and safely disposed of the hazardous waste and ensuring any other parts are recycled.
Please give us a call if you would like to book a free site survey where samples will be taken for laboratory testing, obtain a quote or to book an asbestos-only skip or container as this process is slightly different from standard skip hire.
WEEE – Waste electrical and electronic equipment
Waste electrical and electronic equipment should be carefully and professionally disposed of correctly to ensure treatment, recycling and recovery of the elements that make up the equipment. Solowaste can offer a collection service that will ensure that your WEEE goes to the right place.
All electrical waste is harmful to the environment as it contains dangerous chemicals . When WEEE is dumped in landfills, it decays over a long period of time and leaks toxins into the earth and our waste systems. TV screens and computer screens have metal parts inside that if not handled properly can be dangerous to the environment.
Fridges must be disposed of separately from other items as they need to be degassed to ensure the cfc gases are dealt with safely and that the fluorescent strips are carefully handled.
Liquids such as paint and chemicals must be disposed of correctly. These cannot be disposed of in a household bin or skip as they have to go through special processes for safety reasons. Solowaste can offer the collection of your liquid waste and manage the disposal process for you.
