How does it work?

Sample assessment

We assess the hazardous waste sample, taken from the point of generation, to determine a suitable disposal solution.


Once we have determined a suitable disposal solution, we provide our client with a quote based on the treatment method and management required.

Treatment & disposal

We safely transport the hazardous waste to an Averda site where we verify that the waste matches the assessed sample, and then proceed to dispose of the waste via the treatment solution developed for the client.

Hazardous waste manifest

Once the waste has been disposed of, we draw up a hazardous waste manifest that details exactly how your waste has been handled from collection to disposal. If your waste was transformed into solid fuel, we’ll provide a certificate detailing the carbon saving achieved.

Frequently Asked Questions

Industrial waste is the waste generated by wastewater, construction, and demolition materials for example. Also included are scraps generated during manufacturing, as well as shipping containers, such as drums.

Hazardous industrial waste can comprise of sewage, radioactive waste, shredded circuit boards, and spent sulfuric acid, among many others.

Industrial waste requires stringent pre-work and testing at our labs to ensure that the waste is disposed of in a safe manner.

If industrial waste is not disposed of properly, it can negatively affect both the environment and human health. For this reason, additional documentation will have to be completed prior to the collection of the waste?

Unfortunately, a lot of industrial waste generated cannot be recycled. Averda South Africa does, however, have a mechanism built in place to ensure that only minimal waste generated is sent to the landfill, and where possible, waste is placed into a blending platform which converts it into fossil fuels
