Recycling

Although steel drums have a significant re-use expectation, inevitably the containers will come to the end of their current useful lives and so can then be recycled.

Scrap steel drums are segregated at our associate company's licensed waste management facility adjacent to our own, they are then returned to the reprocessors for fragmenting and smelting, in readiness for recycling into new steel.

No containers are ever land filled, all parts and components are re-processed in one form or another.

Waste Packaging Classifications

This guidance document 'The assessment and classification of waste packaging' was developed by trade associations1 representing companies operating in the chemicals supply chain that use packaging. The Environment Agency, Natural Resources Wales and Scottish Environment Protection Agency have welcomed the development of this guidance and have agreed to its adoption in England, Wales and Scotland.

The document provides guidance for assessing whether packaging to be taken offsite is waste or not and if waste, whether it is waste packaging or not and whether it should be classified as hazardous or nonhazardous. It includes a method that allows for the weight of the packaging to be taken into account and is intended to be complementary to the joint environment agencies' 2.

Definition of Empties

This may involve for example physical or mechanical means such as washing, draining or scraping. The method of emptying will depend on the container and the substance involved.

Waste Material Residues Not Permitted

It is not permitted to receive 210L Drums containing hazardous substance residue materials which may present a reactive or explosive risk, such as oxidising gents (ADR Class 501) Spontaneously combustible or dangerous when wet (ADR Class 4) products.
