Special Waste Disposal Services

Special waste requires special handling because it’s not normal waste. It is any waste material which, because of its physical, chemical or biological characteristics, requires special handling procedures or it will pose a threat to the environment and public health. We specialize in handling unique waste materials with a focus on safety - meticulously assessing their distinctive characteristics and potential environmental risks before granting approval for disposal in our landfills, ensuring responsible waste management and environmental protection.

Acceptable and unacceptable items vary by location. Please contact your local office for details.
Special Handling Procedures

All characteristics and properties of special waste that comes into our landfills are recorded and approved before that waste can be disposed of at the landfill. ​

Special waste requires special handling because it’s not normal waste. Special waste can pose an unusual threat to the environment, equipment, property, or the public health, welfare and safety if not disposed of properly. Contact us to discuss your particular special waste disposal requirements.
