Environmental guidance for your business in Northern Ireland & Scotland
Waste is considered to be hazardous when it might be harmful to human health or the environment. Examples of waste with hazardous properties include chemicals, oil, asbestos, waste electrical equipment which contain potentially harmful components such as cathode ray tubes, energy-saving light bulbs and printer cartridges.
If your business produces waste with hazardous properties you must comply with legal obligations that control how you store, transport, treat and dispose of it.
This guide presents the legal definition for waste with hazardous properties and what you need to do to comply with your legal responsibilities. It also suggests measures that you can take to reduce the amount of these wastes that you produce, which can save you money on disposal costs and reduce your impact on the environment.
