Terms of delivery, receipt of waste

 

The receipt of any waste will be preceded by a pre-sample examination in order to define the combustion parameters of the waste. For liquid wastes, we measure the combustion heat, halogen and heavy metal content, pH and all salt contents. Before treating paste-like or solid waste, we examine the combustion heat, halogen and heavy metal content, and combustion residue content. Following the calculation of the disposal fee based on the above parameters, we draw up a waste disposal contract. If the customer possesses a valid contract, the receipt of waste must be pre-scheduled. Shipments are received in the order of arrival. When waste is received, all the information in the accompanying documents is recorded, whereby every waste shipment can be retrieved for a period of 10 years. Each shipment passes through a radiation monitor before being weighed on a set of OMH (National Office of Measures) certified 30 or 60 ton bridge scales depending on its weight and size. Light-weight waste is measured on a set of OMH certified scales calibrated for 600kgs. Depending on the consistency of the waste, the shipment is directed to the appropriate disposal point.  Prior to disposal, a representative sample of each type of waste is collected and tested in the laboratory based on the above mentioned parameters.

Following a quick test, depending on the consistency and the packing mode, the disposal is carried out in the following containers:

Solid waste:

In a bunker (3×100 m3) provided the waste is received

  • in a container of 1-35 m3
  • on pallets
  • in bulk
  • Bulk medicines are stored in a closed warehouse equipped with a camera before actual disposal.

In storage barrels provided the waste is solid or paste-like.

In a hospital waste disposal system

– if waste is medical and contagious. Waste is placed in a closed-system combustion chamber without being touched by human hand. Waste arriving in non-standard packaging must be transferred into standard packaging provided at the site. Delivery of safety incineration is between 8 am and 12 am on business days.

Liquid waste

  • Liquid waste arriving in a tank vehicle can be unloaded at 3 unloading stands at the same time
  • In a storage barrel

Special liquid waste

We dispose of flammable, low-flash point or poisonous, acid pH<5,5 liquid waste, or liquid waste that cannot be mixed with other types of waste under nitrogen atmosphere. Feeding in special waste is assisted by N2 gas.
