Hazardous Waste Disposal

Hazardous waste is a specific type of waste which can be found in different forms like liquids, solids, sludges, or gases. If handled improperly during storage, transportation, treatment, or disposal operations, it can be dangerous or potentially harmful to human health or the environment. According to the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP), an estimated 400 million tons of hazardous wastes are generated worldwide every year. So hazardous waste disposal should be proper and in a right way.

Hazardous waste mainly includes Industrial Hazardous Waste which is discharged from industrial manufacturing and production process, such as metallurgical waste, fuel waste, mining waste and chemical waste. Household Hazardous Waste, such as paints and solvents, pesticides, refrigerant-containing appliances, thermometers, switches etc. Medical waste is also a major type of hazardous waste. Recycling hazardous waste, rather than disposing of it, can significantly reduce your costs and regulatory and safety obligations. However you must recycle wastes correctly to gain the most benefits and ensure you do not create new risks.

For most cases, hazardous wastes need to be stabilized and solidified in order to be landfilled or incinerated. Whenever you intend to recycle a hazardous waste, you must ensure that the recycling will be legitimate and not actually improper hazardous waste disposal masquerading as recycling. Size reduction is an essential step during solid hazardous waste handing process, by reducing the waste scrap size, landfill space can be maximized. Pieces of smaller size are also easier to burn which facilitates incineration efficiency.
