Grundon has developed a comprehensive and customer-focussed range of services and solutions for dealing with hazardous and special wastes.
All of our procedures comply with current and impending UK and EU legislation.
In March 1990, at a cost of £2 million, we commissioned one of the world's most advanced high temperature clinical waste incinerators. Meeting all existing EC pollution controls the plant represented a major advance in waste management. The incinerator has recently been updated to ensure compliance with new and more stringent EC Hazardous Waste pollution control standards.
Our industry-leading position is maintained by constant monitoring of market trends and continuing investment in research and development. Topics currently being researched include hazardous waste collection from domestic premises and improved recycling facilities for hazardous domestic and industrial waste.
We also offer a comprehensive range of advice and assistance for customers.
Typically the first step is the accurate identification of discarded materials and substances by our qualified and expert team of chemists and technicians.
Only then will we recommend the most appropriate procedures for treatment or disposal.
We own and manage a number of landfill sites licensed for the controlled disposal of a range of solid, liquid and sludge wastes under the Environmental Protection Act 1990.
The services on offer for the safe handling of packaged wastes include the identification of materials and re-packaging of chemicals from damaged or unsuitable containers. Special containers approved under EC regulations are provided for the safe on-site storage of chemical wastes pending collection. Bulk liquid waste collections are made by specialised, purpose-built tankers driven by professionals specifically trained in the transportation of dangerous goods. Our drivers are also up to speed on all current and impending legislation and regulations.
Our consultancy services include the Grundon Health Check - a low cost review designed to identify the extent to which a customer's waste disposal strategy complies with existing legislation.
The Health Check also identifies ways in which your organisation might benefit from improvements in waste minimisation, recycling and handling. Where appropriate, we will also offer advice on contaminated land and effluent treatment.
