lab smalls

Hazardous wastes and other materials arising in laboratory environments can potentially contain dangerous substances and properties such as corrosives, flammables, oxidisers, toxics, carcinogenic or ecotoxic. These they can pose a risk to human safety and the environment so they must be handled in a controlled manner.

Ward’s specialist team, complete with an in-house chemist, works with and on behalf of academic or educational organisations, industrial, cosmetic, agricultural, veterinary and medical business to provide a complete waste management solution for lab smalls.

Out-of-date chemicals or hazardous materials which are no longer required must be disposed of through safe, effective and reliable channels. Ward provides a nationwide identification, packing, storage, collection and disposal service for small to large volumes of laboratory waste.
