Why Is Safe Disposal Of Chemicals So Important?

Recycling and disposing chemical waste appropriately ensures safety of your team and the planet. When thrown away incorrectly, you pose the risk of contaminating waterways which may result in water and food contact, exposing contents to humans, and polluting the environment.
At Plastic Expert, we also specialise in the waste management of plastics. We recycle plastic waste from businesses across the UK which limits raw materials being overused in plastic production and greenhouse gases emitted. Recycled plastics can then be reintroduced back into the market using recycled content.
With our help, we can work together to reduce your carbon footprint and take chemical waste, where possible, through the full recycling processes.

We Sell Plastic Barrel Drums For Chemical Waste

To help with storing chemicals we also sell blue plastic drums to contain the liquid. These include the 220 litre open top drum and 220 litre tight head drum. The tight head drum is best for liquid chemicals due to the hole and bung to pour chemicals into.
