Drum waste disposal
A container drum, also known as a barrel, is usually used to hold liquids and bulk cargo of various kinds. These include hazardous materials, chemicals and powders. Drum waste broadly refers to using these drums to store waste materials and to the condition of the drums themselves after use.
The waste in the drums must be properly identified before the disposal process can begin. Hazardous waste drums and chemical drum waste disposal methods differ based on their contents.
Drum waste management
Cleanaway provides drum collection, processing, recovery and recycling services to the paint, automotive, manufacturing and industrial applications industries. Our team of highly trained personnel and purpose-built fleet can collect, clean and recycle a range of plastic and steel drums and tins.
We start by treating the waste stream found within the drums, either reusing it as fuel or disposing it safely if the resources cannot be recovered. The drums themselves are then crushed and traded as scrap steel or recycled and sold back to industry.
For your peace of mind, Cleanaway is certified to Australian standards for quality, environment and occupational health and safety and operates under an externally certified Integrated Management System. We deliver the highest quality service for your waste management needs.
