The disposal of dangerous waste can a problem. With airbags and seatbelts although they are safety devices when fitted to a vehicle once removed if stored or handled incorrectly they can pose the threat of physical injury. The HSE offers advice on the storage and handling of limited numbers of airbags and seatbelt pretensioners, which can be found here. http://www.hse.gov.uk/pubns/indg280.htm
The majority of airbags that need to be disposed of are found on end-of-life vehicles, and ELV regulations now require 100% of the material to be recycled. By using our service, you can be sure that every part of each waste airbag – be it steel, aluminium, plastic, or nylon – has been recycled. We will also provide you with the documents to prove that recycling has taken place.
Your paperwork is fully covered, including hazardous waste consignment notes, dangerous goods notes, and the certificate of destruction when the job is complete. As well as proof of recycling, we will also help make sure that you are fully compliant with the paperwork for every stage of your audits. This includes dangerous goods notes, hazardous waste transfer notes, risk assessments, and certificates of destruction. In addition, we can also provide a method statement detailing the process from start to finish.
The vehicles will be operated by our ADR drivers. Each of the drivers on our staff has been fully trained and is certified to transport Class 1 and Class 9 dangerous goods.
Waste Carriers Licence
Once we have carried out any detonation work, we have a waste carriers licence that enables us to transport everything to the recycling site.
