Industrial Waste Management

Industrial waste is a broad term that refers to materials that are no longer useful once a manufacturing process has been finished.

The broad category of industrial waste encompasses most waste types. Household waste accumulated at a waste facility, such as a transfer station or landfill, is also included.

Based on EPA waste classification, a subcategory of industrial waste is priority waste. It requires additional controls, such as a requirement to examine landfill alternatives.

The priority waste categories are:

  • Category A, the most hazardous
  • Category B
  • Category C
  • Category D, the least hazardous
  • Soil containing asbestos only
  • Packaged waste asbestos.

The highest-level controls for addressing specific risks are found in reportable priority waste. Reportable priority waste is generally hazardous by nature. It is a subset of priority waste with the most stringent regulations.

This form of waste is the most dangerous to people's health and the environment. Additional regulations for this waste category include only allowing permitted vehicles to transport it and requiring waste to be tracked during transportation using EPA Waste Tracker.

We at CSA Specialised Services can service, manage, transport and dispose of solid and liquid industrial waste in hazardous and non-hazardous forms. All our vehicles are EPA permitted.

Below we have listed different types of industrial waste that we at CSA Specialised Services can safely remove and dispose of.

Liquid Waste

Liquid waste is typically encountered in both households and businesses. Industrial liquid waste is generated from different sites such as car washes, garages and petrol stations, drainage infrastructure, treatment plants, chemical plants, restaurants and food and drink manufacturers, mines, landfills and sewage.

The type of liquid waste that we collect, transport and dispose of are:

  • Hydro Excavation Waste / NDD Slurry
  • Sewer Waste
  • Oily Water
  • Septic
  • Stormwater
  • Grease Trap & Triple Interceptor Waste
  • Undiluted Fire Foam
  • Wash water
  • Leachate
  • Paint/Solvent
  • Carwash bay pit waste
  • Diesel Water
  • Laser Dust

To safely remove and dispose of industrial liquid waste, it is best to contact industrial waste management experts such as CSA Specialised Services.

Solid Waste

Solid waste can encompass a wide range of objects from commercial and industrial places.

Paper, plastic, wood, cardboard, packaging materials, tins and scrap metal, ceramics and glass and any other solid trash that no longer serves its intended purpose are all examples of industrial solid waste.

What is deemed waste in one industry may be utilised as raw materials in another, and most solid industrial waste is recycled and reused.

The types of solid waste that we are able to collect and dispose of are:

  • Intermediate Bulk Containers
  • Drum Savers
  • Booms
  • Carbon Filters
  • Sweeper Waste
  • PFAS Soil
  • Uncontaminated Soil

Prescribed Industrial Waste (Hazardous Waste)

Hazardous waste is known as Prescribed Industrial Waste in Victoria. It is usually produced as a byproduct of other materials produced in factories, hospitals, and manufacturing facilities. If not properly managed, this type of industrial waste can contaminate waterways such as rivers and lakes, causing harm to humans, animals, and the environment.

All combustible, poisonous, corrosive, and reactive waste is classified as hazardous waste.

Below are the common hazardous waste types we remove and dispose of:

  • Asbestos Waste
  • Contaminated Hydro Slurry / Drilling Mud
  • Clinical and Medical Waste
  • Unprocessed Used Cooking Fats and Oils
  • Oily Water
  • Diesel Water
  • Paint/Solvent

Drilling mud can be made up of natural rock and soil, organic matter, water, and drilling fluid. It states that before beginning drilling or excavation activities, the waste producer must do a review to determine whether contamination is possible, and if so, the site/waste must be treated as contaminated.

These items are dangerous to both you and the environment, and they must be disposed of appropriately.

You must contact a waste management company to dispose of all hazardous material properly.
