ORANGE BAG WASTE:
INCINERATION: The orange bag waste that goes for incineration goes through energy to waste plants. Incineration process means there is only 5% residue left which becomes ash and unfortunately that has to go into landfill.
ALTERNATIVE TREATMENT: The orange bags that go for alternative treatment go thorugh a maceration and sterilisation process and the waste is then dried and becomes a product called FLOCK. This is then used at cement kilns as fuel and then goes to landfill.

Orange Bags, Yellow Sharps bins, Blue Sharps bins, Purple lidded Sharps bins, Fixer, Developer, Lead foils, Amalgam Capsules, Waste Amalgam, Teeth with Amalgam, Amalgam Filters, Denaturing Kits, Out of Date Chemicals and lots more.
