Laboratory chemical disposal services

NWE Waste Services offer a laboratory chemical disposal service to customers across The Midlands and Northern England. We have a large client base of schools, colleges and also universities that we regularly undertake work for. Our network of waste management facilities offer regular or ad hoc collections of all wastes arising from laboratory activity.

no obligation all inclusive quotation

The first stage of the process is to provide a list of the chemicals you have which includes the chemical name, the size of the container and the quantity. This enables us to provide you with a no obligation quotation prior to booking in the collection. All packing materials, labels and legal documentation will be covered by our all inclusive quotation. There are no hidden costs.

specific safe collection requirements

Any specific collection requirements you have, be it during a shutdown or school holiday, will be factored in to ensure you receive the service you require. Essentially once on site all you have to do is leave access to the waste clear to enable safe access and egress with the packaged waste chemicals.


Inorganic acid waste, including hydrochloric, sulphuric and phosphoric acids are bulked and forwarded for treatment at a purpose-built treatment facility.
Alkali wastes are also bulked and forwarded for neutralisation.


Laboratory chemicals from schools, colleges, universities, & other industries are largely disposed of via recovery, recycling and incineration. A cataloguing service is available for larger clients whereby a chemist visits site to accurately list waste.


We can recover solvent from many solvent based waste streams. Contaminants can be removed through a distillation process reducing the need to manufacture virgin solvents.


We facilitate recycling & disposal of paint, aerosols, pesticide waste, pharmaceutical waste, electronic & electrical equipment (WEEE), redundant cleaning materials, contaminated packaging waste, surfactants, batteries, oils & lubricants.
