The most frequent question we receive during the initial waste material removal call is “How do I know if this waste is actually hazardous?” So here are some simple guidelines to ask yourself as you are determining whether the waste is hazardous or not. These are the questions regarding hazardous waste determined by the government EPA division.
- Is the waste actually ignitable – is it flammable?
- Is the waste a substance that can corrode, rust or even decompose?
- Is the waste poisonous or is it releasing toxic odor?
- Is the waste combustion reactive or can it explode?
If you can answer “yes” to any of those above questions, it is your responsibility and duty to call for emergency assistance to our reliable and fast response hazardous material service. Most likely, once you have reached out to our hazardous waste removal team, we almost always call emergency 911 assistance as well to help contain the hazardous waste area and keep the general public and any humans on site safe and away from the hazardous waste area.
So there are actually 9 classes of hazardous waste and they basically pertain to the questions we asked above. They are as follows:
- Flammable and combustible liquids
- Flammable solids
- Oxidizing substances or organic peroxides
- Toxic and infectious substances
- Corrosive materials
- Radioactive materials
Our most typical hazardous waste removal projects are for asbestos removal, lead paint removal, toxic mold removal, and flood water damage clean up. But we are trained and certified for many other issues.
All of the above classes of hazardous waste need to be dealt with in a very specific way depending on what the actual waste is. Our hazardous waste removal team is 100% trained to work with all of the above classes and instruct your employees on what to do if they were exposed to the waste products. Again, emergency services will also be on site if there are any injured or affected individuals due to the hazardous material disaster. Our team is also fully trained to know how to tell if someone is or has been exposed to the above classes and ready to act to assist them as quickly as possible.
The most interesting fact in regards to hazardous waste removal is that the largest cause of hazardous waste is actually the basic residential home. Home-owners are often not aware that everyday items that they simply through right into their trash cans are actually hazardous waste and cause much more damage to our environment as a whole even over commercial businesses. You might find it interesting to see that these items that we all have in our homes are actually hazardous. From batteries, cleaning products, solvents, paint, oils, and pesticides like an ant killer product are just a few that can really cause hazardous waste issues for our surroundings. So you can see that it is important that we all do our part and pay attention to what we are just throwing in the trash and causing hazardous waste problems for the world.
