Global Management of Industrial, Hazardous and Non-Hazardous Waste

Technical analysis of the waste involves identifying the type of waste, classifying it with the relevant LER code, as well as defining the packaging, collection and routing process for recovery or disposal.

Management Process


Collection operations are undertaken at the customer?s location, with the subsequent receipt, weighing, repackaging and temporary storage of hazardous waste at Euro Separadora installations. From its temporary storage the hazardous waste is sent for treatment and disposal or recovery at duly authorised end disposal sites.
