Reclaim and Recovery service
It is illegal to deliberately vent refrigerant into the atmosphere, and is therefore necessary that all unwanted product is recovered and handled in a safe and correct manner which doesn't harm the environment.
We are able to provide the industry with a qualified recovery service which ensures that refrigerants are dealt with in accordance with legislation including the completion of all hazardous waste paperwork. We have a fleet of green-top 750kg, 50kg and 10kg cylinders fitted with dual port valves especially for this purpose.
In order to comply with the requirement of Hazardous Waste Regulations 2005, is it necessary for us to make a charge per consignment returned to us. Where product is cross-contaminated and can not be recycled, it is sent for destruction in a certified way which is not harmful to the environment.
The devolved governments of the UK each manage the handling of hazardous waste in slightly different ways. In England it is controlled by the Environment Agency. In Scotland it is the Scotland Environment Protection Agency (SEPA), in Wales it is National Recources Wales and in Northern Ireland it is the Northern Ireland Environment Agency. These bodies regularly carry out spot checks on businesses carrying waste to confirm whether they have registered.
