The safe disposal of adhesives in Dorset

Waste adhesives or adhesive contaminated materials are classified as hazardous waste due to the threat they can pose to the environment and human health. For this reason, they must be disposed of appropriately and in accordance with hazardous waste legislations.

At Commercial Recycling, we are fully licensed to accept hazardous waste and we take every careful step to ensure the environment is protected from potential contamination. Once at our facilities, waste adhesives are stored securely before further processing.

What are adhesives?

Adhesives are substances that bind two surfaces together, but the most common adhesives found in businesses and households include:

  • Glues – PVA, super glue, wood glue etc.
  • Spray adhesives
  • Fabric adhesives
  • Sealants
  • Epoxy resin

If you have waste adhesives that require disposal, contact Commercial Recycling and we can take care of your waste.
