Hazardous Waste Management

Handling and disposing of Hazardous Waste must be completed with due care and diligence, in accordance with Hazardous Waste Regulations 2005. A R Richards provides a full Hazardous Waste Management solution with in-house trained team members.


Hazardous Waste Management

Every business will produce hazardous waste. From printer cartridges and aerosols to oily rags and bulbs, these are all classified as hazardous waste. A R Richards supports all customers to comply with their duty of care requirements in relation to hazardous waste. It is crucial to protecting human health and the environment that it is disposed of correctly.

Hazardous waste is simply classified as anything that can be toxic, reactive, ignitable, corrosive, infectious or radioactive. We can offer friendly professional advice as well as the safe collection of all types of small hazardous waste; failing to dispose of hazardous waste correctly can incur hefty fines. Our in-house Environment & Compliance Team are always up-to-date with the latest UK and European legislation and can provide helpful advice on your legal obligations for hazardous waste.

WEEE Waste Management

Items such as Fridges, Freezers and Televisions are all classed as a Hazardous Waste. This waste is identified as WEEE Waste: Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment. This waste needs to be separated from non-hazardous waste in line with current legislation. A R Richards will guide you through the process from quote to collection.

Asbestos Removal Service

A R Richards provide asbestos removal across Market Drayton, Crewe, Oswestry, Shrewsbury and Whitchurch. We offer a complete range of asbestos removal options. This includes options for a full disposal service, including site surveys, and the works to be completed by trained operatives. For smaller quantities, we would use hire skips, or specialist Depot FIC bags. If you are suspicious that you may have some asbestos, call the A R Richard team and we will arrange a sample test for you at a small fee.
