The worked out areas of a rock salt mine in Cheshire provide a dry, secure, gas-free storage environment for the permanent disposal of a range of solid and granular hazardous wastes.
This innovative solution stores your hazardous waste instead of sending it to landfill, which offers a better environmental option and means your consignments do not need to meet the leaching limit values laid down by the Waste Acceptance Criteria.
The range of wastes we can accept is defined in the IPPC permit issued by the Environment Agency. All must be in either solid, granular or powder form. We cannot store wastes that are flammable, reactive, volatile, biodegradable or radioactive.
