Oily rags waste disposal service
Rags contaminated with oil waste and other hazardous chemicals must be stored and disposed of safely due to their flammable nature. Oily rags should be placed in a metal bin, which is then filled with water all the way to the top before sealing the bin securely to prevent oxidation, which can cause combustion.
Cleanaway offers a comprehensive oily rag waste collection service, including colour-coded oily rag recycling bins to make it easy to sort the waste for recycling.
We offer scheduled and ad hoc collection services for your convenience, complemented with electronic tracking for monitoring. We can help you manage your Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) obligations by providing correctly labelled waste receptacles and recovering the oil wherever possible.
Oily rags recycling service
Oily rags are collected by our specialist fleet of vehicles, then taken to our treatment facilities. Here, contaminants are identified and rags that contain oil are extracted to be recycled. Rags now free of oil will be sent to landfill.
