Waste electrical and electronic equipment can be troublesome to dispose of at the end of life. Proper containment, legally compliant paperwork and a hierarchy of recovery, reuse, recycling and treatment are essential and Nationwide Hire can help you with your requirements.


Taking care of Fluorescent tubes and lamps needn’t be difficult. We can supply a lamp coffin to site on overnight transport that will allow you to store as many lamps as you need safely. When you’re ready to have them collected and recycled, just call us and we’ll do the rest. The paperwork is taken care of too.


With batteries being classed as a hazardous waste stream it’s important to know that your waste contractor is looking after your legal compliance.

We can provide a range of containment devises to hold your spent batteries and arrange collection to suit you.

Orphaned Gas Cylinders

Collection procedures, safe storage and cylinder retrieval schemes are high on most people’s agenda when discussing orphaned gas cylinders. Nationwide Hire can offer sound advice and workable solutions to all of our customers’ gas cylinder enquiries.

Contaminated Soils

We place skips on site quickly to contain the excavated soils. Following an analysis of the waste we can help by advising on suitable avenues of disposal together with compliant documentation. Don’t forget that we can also help with the hire of excavation equipment.


The landfilling of Gypsum (Sulphate) with other biodegradable wastes has been prohibited in England and Wales since July 2005. Producers are therefore encouraged to separate their plasterboard waste for recovery and recycling. This reduces the potential for the production of hydrogen sulphate gas whilst at the same time controlling disposal costs. Ask our team for advice on the best way to segregate your waste to best effect.
