Hazardous Waste

Celtic Recycling is licensed to handle all hazardous wastes encountered during the recovery of electrical equipment,mercury, asbestos, SF6 gas and/or decomposition products, insulating oil and PCBs.

Celtic Recycling guarantee compliance with your Duty of Care and other legal responsibilities regarding the removal of hazardous waste.

Proper procedures and facilities are vital when handling and transporting hazardous waste. These are licensed by the Environment Agency and the Health and Safety Executive.

Hazardous Waste includes all materials which have hazardous properties that may render them harmful to human health or the environment. These are identified in The European Waste Catalogue (EWC 2002) and controlled under the Hazardous Waste Regulations 2005.

Most consignments of Hazardous Waste are controlled by the Carriage of Dangerous Goods Regulations 2004 (and the European equivalent ADR regulations). All Celtic Recycling drivers are ADR trained and Celtic has an in-house, qualified Dangerous Goods Safety Advisor  to ensure shipments are correctly labelled, packaged, handled and transported. The company has also invested heavily in specialised transport systems, designed to provide additional containment of goods in transit in excess of that required by regulations.

Celtic Recycling complies with all Hazardous Waste regulations through the strict implementation of special procedures for the analysis, storage, handling and processing of wastes and has routine systems in place as part of its ISO 14001 environmental management system. The company satisfies or exceeds all Health, Safety and Environmental requirements and regularly acts on the behalf of clients regarding both the practical and administrative considerations involved in consigning hazardous waste. All procedures include an auditable document trail.

Celtic Recycling  is currently trialling a dual tier bar-coding system for on-site labelling of wastes as equipment is dismantled. This will provide immediate computer based access to all consignment records through the entire handling process.

Clients are assured total peace of mind that their Hazardous Waste disposals are managed professionally, and in total compliance with regulations.
