Common Terms in Hazardous Waste Disposal

Waste Management Disposal is a service that provides for the safe and code compliant removal of products that cannot be placed in a regular garbage receptacle. If you have products that are potentially hazardous to the environment you need to contact a professional service for proper containment. Below are a list of terms that you may encounter when speaking with a waste specialist.

  • Ignitability – Materials that are likely to produce a fire under the right conditions and variables.
  • Corrosive – Waste that is capable of eroding the container in which it is placed and therefore presenting an increased risk of pollution.
  • Reactivity – Products that are be chemical or otherwise that may cause explosions and fire when heated or compressed.
  • Universal Wastes – These include items such as batteries, cathode tubes, and other items associated with electronics. They are considered lower risk than other hazardous materials.
  • Medical Wastes – Products such as medicines and equipment associated with the healthcare field. These are governed by laws and regulations to ensure public safety.
  • Recycling – Many safe portions of products can be reclaimed and used again in another form.
  • Neutralization – Some products can be made safe by eliminating the chemical or other portion that poses a threat to the environment. Batteries for example, can be neutralized by counteracting their acidic properties with the appropriate base.
  • Incineration – Products containing harmful substances may be eliminated through burning at high temperatures.
  • Long Term Storage – Management and storage of materials such as nuclear products that require permanent supervision and actions.

    Hazardous waste disposal is necessary to properly remove toxic substances present in anything from electronics to paint. Gas, oil, and other fluids can’t just be thrown out with the regular trash. They must be contained and disposed of in the right manner by qualified providers. Many communities hold a day or two a year where people are welcome to come down to the city landfill or dump and drop off their hazardous waste, such as computers, TVs, thermometers, unused paint, and chemicals. This cuts down on pollution and eases the environmental effect somewhat. On a larger scale, other types of hazardous waste can refer to the waste generated by an industrial factory, hospital, nuclear power plant, manufacturer, or lab, such as medical, solid, or radioactive waste. Companies that specialize in removing hazardous waste can visit a site that has been contaminated, clean spills, contain waste, and remove it from the premises. Such waste can include biohazardous materials, dangerous liquids or gases, chemicals, electronics, and biomedical waste and supplies. Because hospitals are one of the largest generators of medical and toxic waste, they typically contract with hazardous waste removal companies to incinerate or provide disposal of high-level biohazard materials. Needles that may carry infectious diseases are just one example of waste that simply can’t be thrown out with the garbage. Hazardous waste removal services must comply with strict governmental regulations to keep them and the public safe. The waste is incinerated or taken to a trash center to be placed into special containers after company technicians trained in these environmental areas pick up the waste and transport it to the proper facility.
