    The simple solution for managing chemical waste in a timely and compliant fashion

    Hazardous waste must be collected by a registered waste carrier, such as Grundon. We know that disposing of chemical waste can be challenging for businesses, hospitals, schools, and labs alike, especially when it comes to coordinating with busy schedules and holiday periods. That’s why we offer a customised service to keep costs down and ensure 100% compliance with legislation.

    Our chemical waste collection and disposal service includes the listing, packing, collection and disposal of all hazardous waste items, with on-demand support from our highly-skilled experts.

    Why our chemical waste collection service is top of the league

    Chemical waste and school science waste is classed as hazardous waste and requires specialist disposal. With decades of expertise and experience, we understand exactly what you need from a waste collection provider.

    Segregation and Packing Services

    Trust our highly qualified ChemPack chemists to ensure proper segregation and packing of all your chemicals in a fully compliant manner. Strict pre-acceptance procedures are followed in handling this type of waste, ensuring safety and compliance.

    Compliance with Hazardous Waste Regulations

    Rest easy knowing that our service ensures full compliance with the Hazardous Waste (England and Wales) Regulations 2005. This is highly important as non-compliance with these regulations can result in fines, damaging both finances and reputation.
