Bins for Acids

Acids

Acids come under industrial chemical waste and are usually in a liquid form. They are corrosive and very dangerous. Acid waste can leak, especially during cleaning processes. Examples include nitric acid, hydrochloric acid, sulphuric acid and etchants. You can spot acids because of the hazard pictograms on their packaging. Collect acids in a closed container or bottle and let us remove them safely for you.

What happens with Acids

The products are tested at our Rumbeke plant. A great many types of acid undergo physiochemical processes. They have often been contaminated with heavy metals and/or limited concentrations of organic material. This waste is neutralised, immobilised and oxidised. Often a combined treatment is required. In this way we recover as much primary material as possible.

Acceptance conditions

Choose a type of waste to see what is or is not allowed.
