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

    Hazardous waste must be collected by a registered waste carrier, such as Grundon.


    We understand that for schools, arranging the safe and compliant disposal of science and chemical waste can be challenging, especially when it comes to fitting in with school timetables and holiday periods.


    Tailormade to suit your needs, Grundon’s cost-effective school science waste collection and disposal service includes the listing, packing, collection and disposal of all hazardous waste items.


    The help and support from our highly-skilled experts, plus the knowledge that we will keep you 100% compliant with all hazardous waste legislation, means you can go to the top of the class.

    Why our school science waste collection service is top of the league

    Our decades of experience, combined with our in-depth knowledge of working with schools and other education establishments, means we understand exactly what you are looking for from a waste collection provider.


    If you need someone to segregate and pack all your chemicals in a fully compliant manner; our highly-qualified ChemPack chemists can help. Our strict pre-acceptance procedures for this type of waste are part of the process.


    If it’s about making sure you are compliant with the Hazardous Waste (England and Wales) Regulations 2005; that’s another tick in the box for our service. It’s also important because organisations which fall short of the regulations can be fined, damaging both their finances and their reputation.


    We’ll give you access to expert advice every step of the way and our services are cost-effective and reliable. We’ll even liaise with local schools in your area to help keep collection costs down and our flexibility means we only collect when you need us to.
