Hazardous waste is defined as waste material that is dangerous or potentially harmful to our public health or the environment.
While in their simplest forms they are liquids, solids, gases, or a sludge, we also think of hazardous waste in terms of its originating waste stream: liquid waste, clinical/medical waste and e-waste.
Veolia’s highly trained and experienced team provide integrated hazardous and contaminated waste identification, collection, treatment and regulatory-approved disposal services for a range of commercial industries and waste types including liquid waste, clinical/medical waste and e-waste.

Understanding Hazardous Waste
Hazardous waste is a term used to describe waste materials that are inherently dangerous or have the potential to harm human health or the environment. These materials can exist in various forms, including liquids, solids, gases, or sludge. At Veolia, we categorise hazardous waste based on its originating waste stream, which includes:
- Liquid Waste: This category encompasses a wide range of hazardous liquids, from industrial chemicals to contaminated water. Veolia has the expertise and technology to manage liquid waste safely and responsibly.
- Clinical/Medical Waste: The proper disposal of clinical and medical waste is crucial to prevent the spread of diseases and protect healthcare workers and the public. Veolia offers specialised solutions for clinical waste management.
- E-Waste: Electronic waste, or e-waste, is a growing concern due to its complex composition and potential environmental impact. Our team is equipped to handle e-waste in an environmentally friendly manner, ensuring the safe disposal and recycling of electronic devices.
