Processed Hazardous Materials

Processed hazardous materials

Here are the procedures followed when a hazardous waste generator wishes to send waste to CRI Environnement Inc.

  • 1 Reception of a representative sample or MSDS submitted to the CRI laboratory
  • 2 Characterization and analysis of the residue in the laboratory
  • 3 Issuance of a waste code and a quote.
  • 4 Transportation of the residue.
  • 5 Sampling on arrival
  • 6 Analysis on arrival (verification of compliance with the supplied sample).
  • 7 Acceptance, rejection or change of code by the laboratory.
  • 8 Weighing of the load.
  • 9 Unloading of the truck if accepted.
  • 10 Truck cleaning.
  • 11 Reception report for the residue and billing.
  • 12 Issuance of a destruction or recycling certificate

Bulking process (operational information)

The CRI Environnement Inc. consolidation process for small containers of hazardous waste (labpacks) greatly favors recycling since the products are segregated according to their physicochemical nature and the acceptability criteria of recycling centers. The environmental and economic gains made by recycling justify the costs of segregation.

Various types of Labpacks are consolidated under fume hoods by experienced technicians according to the physicochemical properties of the residues. An activity report is completed during the various phases of operations.

Following laboratory analysis and validation of specific codes assigned by CRI Environnement Inc., arrivals are routed to the pumping station or storage areas. The reception hours for tanker trucks or vacuum trucks are from 8:00 to 18:00.


Shipping procedures

Drums for shipping are stored in specific areas, by compound class, until the time of shipment. The drums are checked and labeled accordingly before loading. The manifests and shipping documents are then completed.
