Collecting Hazardous and non-Hazardous Waste

The main difference between a tolerable environment and an environment affected by unnecessary pollution lies in people’s common sense. Yet, the difference between a tolerable and an impeccable environment is given by a professional intervention of collecting and storing chemical and physical, solid and liquid hazardous waste, planning and responsibility. Lack of environmental education causes people to misinterpret these actions as a compromise with nature, by imagining the storage places should be permanently wasted places.

Global Eco Center comes to challenge the false idea that some places in the world are more important than others and there are places we can choose to destroy in order to save the places we live in. The effort to reconsider one’s attitude in terms of ecology requires a couple of essential premises: experience and professionalism. The first one ensures the optimization of the process, by avoiding mistakes from the past; the second preserves the idea that adequate storage of the waste is essential for keeping the environment clean and the air breathable.

With collecting and storage of waste, we take into consideration the following aspects and variables:

  • Separate storage places for waste material based on its degree of viscosity or firmness, chemical composition, quantity, stages of decomposition, etc.
  • Responsible decisions in differentiating between hazardous and non-hazardous waste and taking action according to the two situations.
  • Disposal of hazardous waste making sure no leakage or discharge occurs.
  • Personnel safety while maneuvering and supervising waste material, by means of professional equipment usage.
  • Storage safety for hazardous waste, with adequate containers.

Here’s a general list of the most common types of waste according to their condition and origin:

  • Liquid and slurry waste
    • Used oils – all types, including those with polychlorinated biphenyls  and alimentary;
    • Used emulsions – used water, paints, varnishes, resins, alimentary fat, etc.;
    • Tank sludge – gas stations, transport and storage tanks, etc.;
    • Industrial sludge – electroplating, zinc plating, carbide, cadmium plating, paints, etc.;
    • Chemical waste – expired chemical reagents, various substances, and solvents.
  • Solid waste
    • Auto – car filters, plastic, rubber, oil drums / solvents / paint / antifreeze, windshield glass, contaminated textiles, paper and cardboard, brake pads, car batteries, etc.;
    • Industrial – slags, asbestos, levigated matter, solid sludge, filters, filter cakes, etc.;
    • Alimentary – expired food, fat, packing;
  • Chemical: reagents, PCB capacitors, chemical sludge (electroplating, zinc plating, cadmium plating, nickel plating, etc.).

Global Eco-Center offers authorized services for collecting and disposal of any category of hazardous and non-hazardous waste EXCEPT FOR RADIOACTIVE and INFECTIOUS.
