Hazardous Waste Transfer Station
Polyeco operates a separate Hazardous Waste Transfer Station (HWTS) within its facilities in Aspropyrgos.
The HWTS was designed and built in conformance with the highest safety standards. Automatic fire detection and fighting system is installed throughout the store area and suitable HDPE liner is placed on the ground to prevent potential leakages.
The purpose of the HWTS is to offer temporary storage capabilities for various types of hazardous waste (flammable, toxic, corrosive etc.), which cannot be treated within the facility, so that they can be immediately removed from the producer’s site with a minimum risk to health or the environment. The waste is then transferred according to the EU law to certified European disposal facilities.
This state-of-the-art facility is the destination for a wide range of EWC (European Waste Catalogue) codes for hazardous and non-hazardous waste, brought into the facility both in bulk and in all types of packaging (drums, IBCs, FIBCs etc.).
Polyeco issues a Certificate of Reception and Storage and further Sustainable Management
