Communities and municipalities need a cost-effective and environmentally responsible way to manage Household Hazardous Waste. Household hazardous waste (HHW) is defined as any solid waste classified as hazardous which is generated in a household by a consumer. Major categories of household hazardous materials are household cleaners; paint products; pesticides and fertilizers; automotive products; and arts and crafts-related solvents and thinners.
Most of the waste we collect is processed through our shredders. The resulting product is beneficially used as a fossil fuel replacement in cement kilns. Tradebe Technical Field Services team handles all the details.
The number of sites and length of program can vary. One-day events are typically held once per year. The one site/one time period approach is most applicable to small communities and requires less capital investment. In addition, Tradebe also works with communities that run Permanent Collection Sites. The permanent sites increase participation by increasing convenience. You choose the program that best fits your needs and Tradebe will help make it a success.
