Common Examples of Hazardous Chemical Waste


Batteries are a hazardous chemical waste since they include sulphuric acid, mercury, nickel, cadmium, or lead. These chemicals leak out and, if disposed of in a landfill, contaminate the soil and ground around it.

And you need to worry about not just the batteries in your television remote or game controller. Every battery inside your computer, cell phone, and camera also contains chemical waste.

HWH Environmental handles and disposes of batteries per local and federal chemical waste regulations.

Photographic Film Processing Solutions

Due to concentrations in their creation, the chemical waste in photographic film processing solutions remains potent for an extended period. Because of that, professionally trained hazardous waste disposal companies must dispose of large amounts of used or unwanted processing chemicals and scrap film and paper.

Whether it's the silver concentrate within your film processing solution or another chemical waste, HWH Environmental utilizes our nationwide logistics team to assist in the safe removal of hazardous waste from your facility.

Used Oil and Antifreeze

Depending on specific state regulations, used oil and antifreeze contain hazardous chemical waste that needs proper disposal. Any used oil contaminated with a chemical solvent is subject to hazardous waste disposal regulations.

For state-by-state regulations, don't hesitate to contact your local EPA representatives or HWH Environmental, and one of our trained technicians will provide you with the correct information.

All alcohol-based hand sanitizers are considered hazardous chemical waste due to their ignitability. Because of that, a certified hazardous waste disposal company must dispose of large quantities of expired hand sanitizer.

As companies heavily invested in hand sanitizers during the height of covid-19, a lot of chemical waste needs disposal. If you have alcohol-based hand sanitizer that requires removal, contact HWH Environmental today.

Oil-Based Paints

Oil-based paint is considered hazardous chemical waste because of its flammability. Paints should never be emptied into the drain or thrown away into the garbage.

Avoid polluting water sources by contacting the trained professionals at HWH Environmental, as our chemical waste disposal technicians stay up-to-date on the latest RCRA and state regulations.

“I own my own business and over the past several years, I’ve done work with three different disposal companies. There was bad communication with these three companies. The job always ended up never being completed. I also encountered multiple billing issues with one of the companies. I’m glad that I found HWH Environmental because they walked with me every step of the project. Thanks again!” 

Allan T. – Indianapolis, IN

“Our business had been looking for hazardous waste services but the quotes we had received were outrageous. It took one phone call to HWH Environmental and they scheduled our project immediately. We didn’t pay outrageous prices with HWH.”
Melinda J. – Denver, CO

“Working in NYC can be tough due to the large population. I work for a large factory and I contacted over 10 hazardous waste companies that offered disposal services.  I wasn't able to get an estimate or get a straight answer from any of them. I’m glad that a colleague recommended HWH Enviornmental to me. They responded quickly and gave us a fair price. Thank you!”
Kristin L. – New York, NY

“If you are looking for a quick answer and a great price, call HWH Environmental. I was a little hesitant to work with HWH because they didn't call me back. However, when I did get in contact with them, they apologized and scheduled service right away. I had a building that was leased out to a dental office, which had produced a great deal of medical waste. HWH Environmental disposed of the waste in no time.”
Morgan R. – Charlotte, NC

“When I called HWH Environmental, they described in detail how the process would go. I didn’t produce a lot of waste that needed to be disposed of but they were fair with their pricing and also did a great job.”
Rita P. – Los Angeles, CA

“You don't have to call other places because HWH Environmental does it all. I will recommend their disposal services because the several times that I have worked with them, they have delivered each time. Keep up the great work!”
