Chemical Waste Disposal in Australia

Benzoil is a leading provider of chemical waste disposal services across all states and territories in Australia. Every year, our industries produce more and more hazardous waste, including chemical waste, at rates that exceed population growth. In fact, since 2014-2015, hazardous waste has increased at a compound growth rate of around 6.3% per year. This waste must be dealt with in accordance with strict regulations for storage, labelling, disposal, and recycling in order to not only be compliant, but take an active role in the protection of our environment, water table, natural resources, and communities.

What is chemical waste?

Chemical waste is produced as a result of the activities of manufacturing, mining, oil and gas, and energy and utility sectors. This includes:

  • Dyes
  • Thinners
  • Cleaning fluid
  • Pesticides and herbicides
  • Paints
  • Mineral oil
  • Contaminated metals
  • Sludge
  • Leaching and metal processing solutions (xanthate)
  • Contaminated wastewater
  • Spent solvents
  • Fats, oils, and greases
  • X-ray materials
  • Acids and alkalines
  • Glycols
  • Expired catalysts

Essentially, any waste product that is ignitable, corrosive, reactive, or toxic to the environment/humans falls under the umbrella of chemical waste requiring specialist storage, removal, and disposal by a licensed and experienced hazardous waste removal expert.

This waste is often specific to the industry type, and Benzoil’s familiarity with these industries allows us to offer bespoke solutions. As an environmentally-conscious organisation, we are not only committed to fully compliant and stringent hazardous waste management and chemical waste for all industries and operations of all sizes, but we also work to recycle and reuse wherever possible.
