Deal with your hazardous waste SAIFly

October 22, 2014   //   No Comments

Research has identified that many businesses are failing to dispose of hazardous waste in the correct way, and in fact, up to 45% of businesses are unaware of their legal duties to dispose of their hazardous waste.

Because of the number of companies failing to get this right, unless of course you are disposing of large quantities of hazardous waste, the likelihood of you facing action from the Environment Agency is slim.  But, if you are unlucky, the legal fees, fines etc could run into thousands of pounds.  Plus of course, the fact that disposing of waste illegally, even if unwittingly, may well attract unwanted media coverage.

Ensure that your staff know which bins they must use for each item.  For more information please check out the government’s website.
