Hazardous Waste in the workplace

Hazardous waste is all around us but are you actually aware of the provisions required to remove certain waste.

There’s actually more hazardous waste around you than you might think. Items such as light fittings, laptops, and even the headsets you may use to make calls with are all classed as hazardous waste and it is important to dispose of these items correctly when you decide to replace them or they break.

Almost everything in an office environment has electrical components; laptop batteries, pc screens and much more. Projectors, company mobile phones, ink cartridges and the list goes on, and none of these can just go in the bin.

Hazardous waste in the office, or anywhere for that matter, needs appropriate and planned hazardous waste management and should be something your business is taking seriously, not leaving to chance. At Acumen, we can help take the stress away and provide you with high quality, structured and compliant hazardous waste services.

If you would like to know more about hazardous waste services we offer, please get in touch or look through our website at. You can also find articles on our website about types of hazardous waste, such as WEEE Waste available at
