FAQ about Waste Collection and Transport


In the event of an accident during the collection or transport of hazardous waste, who is responsible?

The producer and/or holder of the waste and the company that transports, are jointly responsible, therefore it is highly recommended to choose a licensed operator.

The transport of hazardous waste by road is a process that involves the movement of noxious substances on public roads. It must be done using safe vehicles, trained professionals and respecting environmental standards.


The transport of hazardous waste involves transport documents. Who is responsible for this process?

The loader is responsible for the transport documentation and must deliver it to the carrier.

To facilitate this operation, ECODEAL provides all instructions to help our customers to fill the documentation (ADR dangerous goods note).


What guarantees does ECODEAL offer regarding safety in the collection and transport of hazardous waste?

ECODEAL has the human resources and vehicles to handle, collect, and transport dangerous products.

Our partners are prepared to act in emergencies and have individual and collective protective equipment (masks, gloves and vests, fire extinguishers, portable warning signs, etc.).

The transport plan also includes containment measures, in the event of an accident that causes a spill or dispersion of hazardous materials that are likely to contaminate the environment. At ECODEAL, we ensure the safety of everyone.


Are there any advantages to hiring an operator for the total and integrated management of my waste?

Choosing a single operator simplifies the process, can be more affordable, and minimize the risk of accidents because only one entity is involved in the entire process.

The law is clear when identifying the producer and/or holder of dangerous products as responsible for the final destination of potentially harmful materials. Keep in mind that the collection, as well as the transfer of hazardous waste are steps in a long process that ends in the treatment, valorization, or disposal of your company's waste.
