If required, prior to disposal we will securely treat hazardous materials utilising our Rotoclave® system (a patented steam sterilisation waste treatment plant) to destroy pathogens or other hazardous substances.

For your peace of mind we also offer disposal and destruction certificates and tracking details outlining the date of the service, volume of product and type of product disposed of.  You demonstrate environmental stewardship, while we take care of the waste - responsibly and reliably.
