Hazardous waste is waste that even in small amounts can cause damage.
Hazardous waste is substances that even in small quantities can cause injury to man, animals or the wider environment. Hazardous waste must be disposed of in the proper manner. All departments of SAR have a licence to collect, receive and dispose of hazardous waste.
Examples of hazardous waste:
• Drilling cuttings and oil-based mud, oily emulsions from drill floor, and materials consisting of, containing or contaminated with crude oil or condensate
• Oil-contaminated matter such as tank sludge from cleaning out oil tanks and oil sludge from the oil separator
• Oil fraction from oil separator and liquid oil slops from tank cleaning
• Oily products like spills, grease and lubricants, oil filters, oily fillers, oily liquids, fuels and heating oil
• Organic solvents including chloroform, acetone, brake fluid, anti-freeze and refrigerator coolants, lynol cellulose-based thinner, lighter fluid, turpentine, other paint thinners and white spirit
• Slag and scale, dust, suspended ash, catalyst residue, abrasive beads containing harmful substances
• Chemicals such as agents containing acids, alkalis or solvents
• Paint and finishing products including paints, adhesives, varnish and epoxy hardeners
• Spray cans containing hazardous substances
• Cleaning and maintenance products such as burnishing pads, spot remover, rust remover, de-icing lock spray, etc
• Waste containing mercury such as old batteries, light tubes and thermometers, etc
• Lead-acid batteries and products containing cadmium, including NiCad batteries and rechargeable batteries. Also lithium batteries and button batteries.
• Control agents such as pesticides for use on plants, fungicides to control mould, and anti-vermin agents like rat poison
• Building waste including CCA-impregnated timber, creosote-impregnated timer, chlorinated paraffins, like double glazing seals and expanded foam, also PCB and PCT waste such as caulking compounds and vinyl floor coverings
• Hobby chemicals, glues, photolab reagents, white-out for typists, nail varnish, etc.
We will make sure that suitable liquid containers, intermediate bulk containers (IBCs) and collection drums for the different sorting fractions are provided where needed. We can either empty the waste or exchange the container.
Among the fractions we commonly collect with ADR-accredited tank vehicle are: oil separator slops; metal/ hydroxide sludge; spill oil; oil-water emulsions; diesel oil, heating oil and petrol; oily mud and cuttings; acids and alkalis; solvents; and any large volumes left in tanks.
Waste sorted into drums, IBCs and small containers is collected with our ADR-accredited tanker or flat-bed lorry.

A good procedure is to examine the label on the original container to identify health hazards. If it says toxic, corrosive, caustic, flammable or similar, then the waste should be treated as hazardous.
