This service is provided mainly to businesses generating waste in small volumes. Examples are research laboratories, universities and other educational institutions, hospitals and other public institutions, primary, secondary and tertiary industrial facilities
Following a rigorous segregation of organic and inorganic products, the residues, mostly generated in small containers (jars, bottles, cans, etc.) are placed by our experts in drums of the "Labpack" type, which contain large volumes of vermiculite, a granular material capable of absorbing shocks and leaks.
These drums are then transported by trailer truck to the hazardous waste management (HWM) center of CRI Environment inc..
