One of the biggest concerns that our industrial and commercial clients have is how to properly and safely dispose of industrial solid waste. Industrial solid waste is often difficult to deal with. Sunrise Sanitation is proud to service job-sites and commercial clients to help dispose of industrial solid waste.

Industrial waste management
Although considered non-hazardous municipal waste, tires should be disposed of with care to avoid harmful effects on the environment.

Solid wastes are materials that should not be mixed with your average run of the mill office or household garbage. Waste generated by industrial or manufacturing processes needs special attention. If you produce industrial solid waste at your job-site, talk to your waste management company about the proper way to separate and dispose of these materials.

Non-hazardous industrial waste

Non-hazardous industrial waste materials resulting from industrial, commercial, agriculture, or other, need special attention and require a separate method of disposal from municipal solid waste (trash and garbage.) First, you need to determine that your industrial waste is non-hazardous. Any non-hazardous materials stemming from production or construction should be properly disposed of using the proper methods provided by your waste management company. Second, you may need special dumpsters and collection services for your non-hazardous industrial waste, to avoid causing harm to the environment and our collective health.

Disposing of tires

Although the EPA classifies tires as non-hazardous municipal waste, the breakdown of tires will release hazardous waste. Tires should, therefore, be recycled and disposed of separately from your municipal waste. Be sure to recycle your tires so that they don’t end up in overcrowded landfills and cause environmental damage as they slowly break down.

Hazardous industrial waste

Hazardous industrial waste
Batteries are considered hazardous industrial waste and should not be thrown in the garbage.

For hazardous industrial waste, like paint, chemicals, solvents, sludge, pesticides, and other toxic and dangerous products, need a separate disposal plan than non-toxic industrial waste. Not only are hazardous industrial waste products potentially harmful to our health and environment, but they are often unstable, flammable, explosive, or corrosive. By not properly disposing of these harmful waste products, you could cause irreparable harm to groundwater, the environment, and to the health of the population.
