Treating hazardous waste as per guidelines

Hazardous waste is defined as any waste product that has the potential to harm humans or the environment in the future. Pesticides, batteries, cleaning and polish chemicals, solvent-based paints, leftover pharmaceuticals, computers, and other hazardous wastes are produced by Australian households and businesses. Illegally dumping hazardous waste is a serious offence that can result in severe penalties from regulators.

Solo’s hazardous waste team has the skills and expertise to manage liquid or solid hazardous waste, backed up by a specialised fleet of vehicles and equipment. The collection, transportation, treatment, and disposal of liquid hazardous waste are all tracked.

Solo is dedicated to resource recovery and collaborates with clients and councils to create cost-effective treatment methods to divert liquid waste from landfills whenever possible. Even the reclaimed oil and grease from grease traps are recycled for use in stock feed, while liquid food waste can be employed as fertiliser for crop enhancement.
