Also known as HHW, these are hazardous wastes produced from households or businesses that may be potentially dangerous and lethal when mishandled. These types of wastes include:
Yes, most common hazardous materials produced from households can be recycled:
Since a standard household or business establishment does not normally produce large amounts of HHW, it becomes a challenge when there is actually a need to dispose of it. Questions about who to call, what to do, how to recycle, and how much it costs to remove these safely from your home become a concern. That’s where we come in.
ACTenviro works with states, counties, and cities on the management of environmental services including providing solutions for the management of household hazardous waste. Our focus is to provide services that associate with transportation and disposal of HHW waste. ACTenviro is currently performing HHW services under several contracts in the following states: Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, California, Oregon, and Washington State
When it comes to the handling, transportation, and disposal of HHW, ACTenviro carefully considers these main points:
That is why, over the years, the ACTenviro team has developed a perfected system for the HHW management methods of collection, segregation, and packaging of hazardous waste materials for several municipalities.
Since waste management regulations and processes are continuously improving, we also strive to regularly evaluate our procedures for HHW collection and management.
ACTenviro also takes into consideration the specific HHW collection needs per community. We understand that some communities benefit from one-day HHW collection events, while some have fixed waste facilities for ongoing HHW collection events.
