Terms of delivery, receipt of waste

 

The reception of any waste will be preceded by a pre-sample examination in order to define the incineration parameters of the waste. For liquid wastes, we measure the calorific value, halogen and heavy metal content, pH and salt contents. Before treating paste-like or solid waste, we examine the calorific value, halogen and heavy metal content, and incineration residue content. Following the calculation of the treatment fee based on the above parameters, we draw up a waste treatment contract. If the customer possesses a valid contract, the reception 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 treatment point.  Prior to treatment, 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 treatment 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 storage equipped with a camera.

In barrel-storage the waste is solid or paste-like.

In a hospital waste treatment line

If waste is medical and contagious. Waste is placed in a closed-system into the rotary kiln without being touched by human. Waste arriving in non-standard packaging must be transferred into standard packaging provided at the site. Delivery of waste for security 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 treat 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 of special waste is assisted by N2 gas.

Obligations of the carrier

Carrier must make sure

  • the hazardous waste can be transported according to ADR regulations.
  • all the documents can be found in the vehicle (accompanying documents, written instructions etc.)
  • neither the vehicle nor the cargo has any obvious deficiencies, leakage or cracks.
  • the tank on the vehicle, the tank container, or the packaging (e.g.: IBC) has not expired.
  • the required hazard labels and markings have been affixed to the vehicle, the markings on the packages (Serial number, danger labels, correct shipping name, sender’s name, HAK (EWC) code, date of dispatch).
  • all the prescribed documents for the driver (e.g.: written instructions), and the necessary tools are to be found in the vehicle.

The forwarder must make sure the vehicles are not overloaded.
