Hazardous waste is waste which has the potential to cause harm to humans or the environment. Examples include:
Asbestos can be found in any industrial or residential building built or refurbished before the year 2000. It is in many of the common materials used in the building trade that you may come across during your work.
Chemicals, like other types of waste, can be harmful to human health or to the environment, either immediately or over an extended period of time. Chemical waste, like other hazardous waste need to be treated, disposed of, or recycled, safely.
There are some hazards associated with recycling and storing used batteries. These include contact with acid, which often leaks from old batteries, and a small risk of fire.
Your Duty of Care
The correct handling and disposal of such wastes is paramount to the containment of the hazard.
