Hazardous waste transport
Every kind of treatment of hazardous waste is liable to permit. One exeption is the onsite collection and pre-treatment by the producer and some special cases of transport in connection with collection.
Multiszint Ltd. undertakes the transport of every kind of hazardous waste. We pay special attention to complying of duties included in legal regulations. We ensure the tracking of our hazardous waste transports through our GPS based system and dispatcher service.
Why is hazardous waste dangerous?
In case of activities producing or being in contact with hazardous waste it is a basic principle to endeavor to prevent and decline of the formation and danger of the waste and to recycle a bigger rate of waste. The tracking and control of the route of hazardous waste must be ensured and the environmental pollution and endangering of health is to be hindered.
The Hungarian hazardous waste regulation considered earlier only the pre-processing, utilization and disposal activities as treatment. The waste management law introduced according to the EU regulations the wider concept of treatment that includes not only the physical or chemical changing of waste but the collection, storage and transport of waste, as well. The producer and holder of the waste is basically responsible for a treatment that hinders the pollution and impairment of the environment and its elements, and they have to provide for the environmentally friendly treatment and finally for the disposal of the hazardous waste. The fulfilment of the disposal can occure through the producer itself – according to the permit of the environmental authority – or through giving up to an authorized company.
The general regulations of the treatment of hazardous waste contains the ministerial decree No. 98/2001. (15.06.) paying attention to the detailed regulations in law. Under the requirements of the treatment can be found first of all general conditions, restrictions and restraints of hazardous waste. From these it was regulated more detailed the question of mixing because it was in several cases just the attenuation of hazardous waste to make it less dangerous. To avoid this the waste management law says that it is prohibited to mix hazardous waste with other waste or materials or it must be authorized by the environmental authority. The regulation sets the conditions of giving out the mixing approval.
