Find the ideal solution to correctly manage your waste with ECODEAL.

What is Integrated Waste Management?

Correct waste management is mandatory and essential to minimize the effects on environmental and public health.

Whoever produces or holds waste is responsible for finding the best solution for this type of remaining material.

The correct treatment of hazardous and non-hazardous waste requires a set of well-defined operational rules.

At ECODEAL, the integrated management process involves a set of technical, administrative and financial activities, which includes:

  • Collect;
  • Transport:
  • Storage;
  • Valorization;
  • Treatment;
  • Waste disposal.

All production processes generate waste and, sooner or later, the products placed on the market also end up becoming waste.

These materials are classified as dangerous or non-dangerous according to their nature, character and industrial activity of origin.
