Why be concerned about automotive waste?
With the number of cars on the road today it’s not surprising that the amount of automotive waste is on the rise as well. In the United Kingdom, 700,000 tons of lubricating oil is used every year by some 34.5 million vehicles. Looking at these figures, it’s clear to see why automotive waste can pose such an issue.
Additionally, much of the automotive waste that is produced doesn’t get recycled. Instead, it gets dumped down the drain or disposed of in other illegal ways.
What should I do with used antifreeze?
Antifreeze is a very common liquid that also happens to be very poisonous to both humans and animals. If a great enough amount is spilled or leaks onto a surface, like your driveway, it may attract pets (or other animals) and children alike due to it having a particularly sweet taste.
Keep in mind that, in some states, it’s illegal to dispose of antifreeze in landfills. Should you need assistance, Hazardous Waste Experts has a program in place for the disposal of used antifreeze and can come to your location to retrieve it, whenever you require disposal.
Can’t I just throw away used car batteries?
Used car and small engine batteries contain strong acids that can cause severe burns and other health risks. Additionally, most of these batteries contain other hazardous materials and typically contain lead. In fact, some stats ban the disposal of lead-acid batteries into local landfills.
If you need to get rid of your used car batteries, we have an extensive program in place for their pickup and disposal. Give us a call today or request a quote by using the form on this page.
