COLLECTION AND TRANSPORT OF HAZARDOUS CHEMICAL WASTE. A PRELIMINARY STUDY

INSAMLING, LAGRING OCH TRANSPORT AV MILJOEFARLIGT AVFALL. EN FOERSTUDIE

In this preliminary study, which is based upon an inventory of experiences from companies dealing with collection and transport of hazardous chemical waste, the problems are /TRRL/ waste, organization, systems, economy/energy, vehicles, packing (marking) and environment. Under these headlines the situation and the experiences are described in short and suggestions are outlined. The preliminary study does not claim to be complete - it only points out some problems important to be solved. Naturally there are many solutions available. It is essential that all the municipalities before undertaking a complicated responsibility - solutions, systems and clarities to ensure a safe treatment - have to be created. This has to be done in order to render management of the hazardous chemical waste in a secure way for the environment as well as for the personnel working with the refuse. At the same time the economical consequences must be elucidated, estimated and controlled.
