Collecting and transporting hazardous waste

Local authorities, industrial companies and healthcare professionals: SITA offers solutions for collecting and transporting hazardous waste, guaranteeing safety and traceability.

Clinical waste: safe handling 

SITA provides appropriate and ADR (European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road) approved packaging solutions. These solutions guarantee that the waste will be perfectly sealed from collection to transportation to treatment.

Hazardous industrial waste: custom-made solutions 

SITA offers a range of ‘classic’ collections on site as well as more specific solutions:

  • On-site intervention by our people to identify and prepare the waste for transportation within the ADR treaty and safety measures
  • Contractual and/or call-out waste collection, according to volume and organisation
  • Internal collection of waste (from the worksite) or external collection (from landfill sites)
  • Emergency collection (within 24 or 48 hours)
  • Access to flexible tools to organise collection systems via the internet

Hazardous waste: guaranteeing safe transportation and compliance with regulations

In order to optimise and secure transportation, SITA guarantees:

  • waste traceability with identification labelling
  • appropriate vehicles fit for ADR transportation of hazardous waste
  • skilled drivers (ADR, certification A, hazardous waste handling, control before loading internal training)
  • a large range of approved packaging and waste labelling solutions
  • services to guarantee waste transportation compliance (ADR preparation for transportation, reconditioning of waste by chemical engineers, sampling etc)
  • Safety Consultant Hazardous Materials (CSTMD) services

Domestic waste: appropriate collection points

Households produce hazardous waste such as solvents, batteries, paints and cleaning products, and these must be collected and processed too. SITA provides local authorities with mobile or fixed collection points to collect and route the waste to treatment centres.
