Oils, Resins, Paints & Thinners

Many small everyday items fall within the hazardous waste regulations when considering their disposal. Resin, Aerosols and Paints all need careful handling in order to conform with current legislation. We are able to offer sound advice and guidance and we’re always happy to discuss your requirements, whether they are large or small.

Commonly produced during construction, maintenance and engineering it is a constant challenge to find cost effective disposal solutions for paints, thinners, resins, oils and their containers.

Nationwide Hire has an excellent track record in not only handling these waste streams but also diverting them away from landfill to recycling and alternative energy.

Hazardous Packaging

Guidance on the classification and assessment of waste (2015) Technical Guidance WM3.

From 2015 the following containers are now classified as hazardous and cannot be legally mixed with general waste:

All packaging that is contaminated with any quantity of any substance that exhibits any hazardous property will now be classified as hazardous, irrespective of the concentration of that contaminant. All waste packaging arising from all processes on every site will need to be reassessed and, if hazardous components are present at any level, the packaging will be considered a hazardous waste.

To make sure you’re compliant and save money Nationwide Hire provides a range of containment solutions that allows you to segregate and dispose of this waste. Download our quick guide and call us today; we’ll keep your hazardous waste sorted.
