HazDirect from Biffa is the UK’s first dedicated, national service of its kind which enables customers to dispose of low levels of hazardous waste.
Our fleet of dedicated vans have been custom-converted for safe transportation of hazardous materials, ensuring that HazDirect is a cost-effective, convenient service able to collect your hazardous waste and help your business boost its CSR credentials.
We collect and process anything from a small volume of laboratory chemicals to drummed wastes and IBCs. Our service is designed to ensure our customers meet their legal obligations when disposing of wastes.
After you sign up to HazDirect, your business will be issued with a Waste Safe Mini. The container can be collected when required – on a daily, weekly, monthly or even annual basis.
Once collected, we provide all of the necessary paperwork to ensure regulatory compliance and we then process the hazardous waste into safe, non-harmful materials.
We collect a number of workplace hazardous wastes, including:
- Bulbs and UV lamps
- Alkaline batteries
- Adhesives (e.g. superglue)
- Waste electrical items (WEEE) such as printed circuit boards, kettles and toasters
- Full or part-full paint tins
- Mineral oil (packaged)
- Rags/granules contaminated with oil or solvent
- Oil filters
- Empty containers contaminated with oil
