If you are using coolant in your operations this is what you need to know when disposing of it

Coolants have different threshold levels which dictate whether they are hazardous or not depending on the type of oil used.

Keeping coolant away from other wastes is important as mixing hazardous and non-hazardous wastes is an offence.

Coolant should be disposed of by a licensed contractor.

Waste coolant should be stored in a bunded container that is clearly labelled.

Coolant can sometimes be re-used, where it is appropriate to do so it can save upwards of 80% of the fluid management costs.

As part of our site audit, we will assess your coolant to determine whether you can re-use it and whether it is hazardous or not.
