Hazardous and e-waste Disposal and Recycling Techniques

by Kelly Rodriguez Adelaide Waste & Recycling Centre

Hazardous waste includes certain chemicals, non-biodegradable waste, medical waste that contains sharps, explosives, chemicals, and radioactive waste. Batteries and electronics, paint products, asbestos, acids, fertilizers and herbicides, automotive products, needles and lancets, and spot removers are all examples of hazardous waste. It also includes waste that produces toxic byproducts when it decomposes. Hazardous waste disposal in Adelaide is regulated under a cradle to grave concept, which means that its journey must be documented from the time it becomes waste, and ownership remains with the generator of hazardous waste in perpetuity. Hazardous waste disposal in Adelaide requires neutralisation so that it does not harm the environment.

Adelaide Waste and Recycling Centre provides a variety of solutions to handle all types of hazardous waste using environmentally friendly practices such as evaporation, storage, and stabilisation. Adelaide Waste and Recycling Centre's hazardous waste disposal methods are designed to aid in the production of secondary raw materials such as minerals in cement factories, glass, metals, and so on. For hazardous waste disposal in Adelaide, the company uses chemical methods such as ion exchange, oxidation, and reduction, as well as thermal methods such as high-temperature incineration. The company's biological treatment for hazardous waste disposal in Adelaide includes the use of genetically-engineered species bacteria. In some cases, physical treatments such as concentration and solidification, as well as encapsulation, may be used for hazardous waste disposal in Adelaide. 

Industrial bin services

Adelaide Waste and Recycling Centre also offers industrial bins ranging in size from 1 cubic meter to 4.5 cubic meters, 1100 liters, and large, multi-lift type bins to safely collect and dispose of a variety of industrial waste types, including hazardous industrial waste.

Recovering precious metals from the e-waste

Electronic waste is a diverse type of hazardous waste. Because the waste stream in Adelaide is complex, there is growing concern about e-waste recycling. Many modern electronic equipment can contain more than 60 different elements that are both dangerous and valuable. Mobile phones, batteries, computers, televisions, microwaves, vacuum cleaners, cloth dryers, washing machines, refrigerators, electronic toys, cathode ray tubes, and other discarded electronic gadgets and items are examples of electronic waste (E-waste).

E-waste recycling in Adelaide is critical because improper treatment may result in the release of harmful pollutants such as lead, mercury, cadmium, phosphor, and others. Furthermore, e-waste frequently contains difficult-to-extract precious metals such as platinum, gold, cadmium, and palladium. These metals are frequently used in the production of chips and printed circuit boards (PCBs). E-waste recycling in Adelaide keeps these metals available for reuse, eliminating the need for extraction.

Process of e-waste recycling

E-waste recycling in Adelaide entails shredding the waste to break it down into smaller pieces for proper sorting. The e-waste can be manually dismantled to retrieve various parts. The conveyor belt's shaking process aids in the removal of dust from e-waste. Steel is separated from iron and other waste types using magnetic separation. Mechanical methods may be used by e-waste recycling in Adelaide to separate aluminium, copper, circuit boards, and other waste types. To separate glass from plastic, a water separation method may be required. Adelaide Waste and Recycling Centre's e-waste recycling helps in the recovery of materials such as gold, copper, lithium, plastic, glass, and others.

Minimising your impact on the environment

All waste is sorted into recyclable and general waste at Adelaide waste tip by the company's trained crew. Batteries, aluminium cans, glass bottles and jars, mobile phones, electronic waste, used mineral engine oil, whitegoods and appliances, and other items are frequently recycled at the Adelaide waste tip. Larger vehicles are used to transport non-recyclable waste to a nearby landfill. This bulk haulage of waste to the remote landfill site contributes to the overall efficiency of waste disposal for residents and councils in Adelaide and surrounding areas. Only waste that cannot be recycled is disposed of in a landfill. The landfill is designed in such a way that waste pollution to the soil is kept to a minimum, and harmful gas emissions are kept low. Adelaide Waste and Recycling Centre has placed recycling facilities at the landfill to generate heat and electricity from the emitted gases, ensuring that your waste not only reduces greenhouse gas emissions but also contributes to a more sustainable economy.
