Hazardous waste in Sydney must be managed differently than all other kinds of rubbish removal in Pyrmont and surrounding areas.
The term “hazardous waste” refers to any waste material that is potentially harmful to humans or the environment. It includes liquid waste, sludge, biomedical waste, and e-waste. Depending on the type of waste it is, it needs to be disposed of accordingly – and should never be placed in normal household rubbish.
Hazardous waste represents a wide array of products which include:
1/ Liquid Waste
- Grease traps
- Septic waste
- Oily water
- Paper pulp
- Caustic liquids
- Resins and inks
- …and more
2/ Other Waste
- Contaminated spill kits
- Photographic waste
- Contaminated materials
- Pesticides and herbicides
3/ Clinical Waste
- From hospitals, vets, doctor’s surgeries, dentists, laboratories, and food processing plants
- Mobile phones
- Media players
AA Adonis is committed to fast and efficient rubbish removal in Pyrmont and right across Sydney, however we do not handle any form of hazardous waste.
There is a number of specialist waste removal companies that specifically remove hazardous waste, and these are specially licensed to do so.
Additionally, the City of Sydney Council holds chemical drop off days where all items that should not ever be disposed of in the bin can be brought to a central collection base. Items collected here include aerosols, solvents, household cleaners, paints, pesticides, pool chemicals, motor fuels and fluids, hobby chemicals, gas bottles, fire extinguishers, smoke alarms, skincare and cosmetics, batteries and globes, and poisons.
Do your part for the planet and your local environment and be sure to dispose of your hazardous waste responsibly.
