Whilst disposing of this waste, we are also able to recycle hazardous containers such as IBC. These are often made of HDPE (high-density polyethylene) that can be recycled into a range of products, including plastic lumber, garden furniture, bins, fencing and more. Other materials used for rigid IBCs include metals like aluminium or iron, and a protective layer of zinc covering either iron or steel.

The Advantages Of Recycling Hazardous Waste

Recycling IBCs and hazardous materials significantly reduces the environmental impact associated with waste disposal. Traditional disposal methods for hazardous materials can lead to soil contamination, water pollution, and air quality degradation. 

By recycling, businesses prevent harmful substances from entering and damaging ecosystems. Moreover, recycling IBCs minimises the demand for new raw materials, leading to reduced energy consumption and lower greenhouse gas emissions.

Proper recycling of IBCs and hazardous materials ensures compliance with environmental regulations and standards. Recycling services specialising in hazardous materials are equipped to handle, treat, and repurpose these substances safely, mitigating risks.
