Hazardous Waste

At Titan Resource Ltd, we are legally accredited to manage and advise upon Hazardous waste streams.

Examples of hazardous waste

Hazardous waste poses a significant risk to human health or the environment due to its toxic, flammable, reactive, infectious, or corrosive properties. Examples of hazardous waste include chemicals, solvents, batteries, pesticides, medical waste, and specific electronic devices. Proper handling of hazardous waste is crucial to prevent contamination and harm to human health and the environment.

Here are some essential guidelines for how we are handling hazardous waste:

We correctly identify hazardous waste and advise how to separate it from non-hazardous waste at the point of generation. Use appropriate labelling and signage to distinguish hazardous waste containers clearly.
We advise storing hazardous waste in appropriate containers compatible with the waste type. Containers should be tightly sealed and in a designated area away from public access. Secondary containment measures should be in place to prevent spills or leaks.
We ensure personnel handling hazardous waste are adequately trained in handling, storage, and emergency response procedures. They should be aware of the hazards associated with the trash they handle.
Our collaborative partners comply with all regulations and use specialised containers for hazardous materials when transporting hazardous waste. We only use licensed and permitted transporters to ensure safe transit.
Hazardous waste should be disposed of or treated at authorised facilities; illegal dumping or inappropriate disposal can have severe consequences; this is why we advise using Titan Resource Management to maintain safety and meet legal requirements.
We explore opportunities for recycling or reusing hazardous waste materials. Recycling reduces the need for raw materials and can be a more environmentally friendly option.
We encourage you to familiarise yourself with local, national, and international hazardous waste handling and disposal regulations. Compliance with these regulations is essential to prevent legal issues and environmental harm, and we are happy to discuss this with you to enable the best path for your waste.
Implement waste minimisation strategies to reduce the amount of hazardous waste generated. We can support you in considering alternative processes or materials that are less hazardous.
We maintain detailed records of hazardous waste handling, storage, transportation, and disposal activities. Accurate documentation is essential for regulatory compliance and accountability. Titan is well-versed in all requirements.
*It’s important to note that hazardous waste management can cause damage to the environment; it is essential to keep up to date with legislation and monitor agencies (DEFRA/The EA) for specific guidelines applicable to your location.
