Hazardous waste may display explosive, carcinogenic, toxic, mutagenic and similar properties, and when it enters the environment, it poses a threat to humans, animals and all inanimate nature.
Hazardous waste includes asbestos-containing waste, medical waste, electronic equipment, batteries and accumulators, plant protection chemicals, paints, adhesives and many more. The properties of this type of waste clearly confirm their health and life threatening effect and impact on environmental pollution.
Most often, the classification of waste is based only on the analysis of the process and the verification of the mixture of substances from which they were created. In most cases, classification of the hazardous waste doesn't include the laboratory analysis, what means that it is not checked if the limit concentrations of substances making them hazardous have been exceeded, and thus if the waste has hazardous properties or not. It may happen that a waste classified in this way is incorrectly considered as hazardous, charging the producer with higher costs of its processing and disposal.
Taking into account the fact that at the turn of recent years, there has been a successive increase in the costs of waste processing and disposal, in particular hazardous waste, failure to take into account laboratory tests when determining the type of waste may generate costs that can often be avoided.
Having relevant test results, the waste classification is changed by way of notification. Our specialists offer support in the preparation of such an application.
